Reiki Level One is one of the most accessible and popular healing therapies, and it is offered by holistic therapists worldwide. Our comprehensive, professional Reiki Level One beginner's course guides you carefully through all of the skills and techniques you will need in order to become a Reiki Level One Healer.

You will learn the unique history and theoretical knowledge of Reiki, and learn about the Chakras. You will also be taught the practical skills and receive a Reiki Level One Attunement and join the unbroken Reiki lineage of healers which started with Mikao Usui. Following your training and Attunement, you will be able to practice self-healing and deliver healing energy to friends, family and treasured pets.

There are many additional applications for healing at Reiki Level One and these are explained in your Reiki Level One course manual and can be discussed during your training course. You can practice professionally with this qualification, read more below.

Questions & Answers

Yes, and you don't need any previous experience to participate. Also perfect as a CPD or refresher course for practicing therapists.
Not at all. If you attend a solo course then your teacher will provide a model for you, or be happy to act as the recipient/model, so you can practice your healing techniques upon them. And if you attend a class course then students work upon one another so a massage model is not required.
The Beauty Guild and the IGCT.
Many choices from reputable industry recognised insurers including: Westminster Insurance (our featured insurers), Wellbeing Insurance, Towergate Insurance and The Beauty Guild.
Although all of our courses are suitable for professional practice (once you have acquired insurance cover), we recommend that once students pass their Reiki Level One course, they should focus their attention initially upon self-healing and then work with family and friends once they are confident with the techniques. Reiki Level Two provides additional material and information for working professionally upon members of the public and charging a fee for this.
Yes of course. Reiki courses are most often delivered in the format of 1:1 training and in this way you'll receive focused guidance via the individual attention of our teacher. You will be taught a complete healing treatment routine for doing self-healing and for providing healing treatments for your friends, family and treasured pets. And because your Reiki Master teacher will also deliver a healing treatment for you, you will get to experience first-hand how amazing and effective Reiki Healing can be.
Reiki Level One is most often taught as a 1-day course and you will learn all of the practical skills you need in one day, however we recommend that you practice the treatment routine upon yourself until you feel confident to work with your friends and family, using our comprehensive Reiki Level One manual for further assistance after your practical training in order to perfect the techniques.
You're always welcome to return and attend only the practical training again. This is known as a refresher course and allows you to brush up on the techniques you have learned with us. Refresher courses are only available to students who have previously completed their course with us, and substantial discounts are offered.
No, this is a Diploma course. Diploma courses are also known as ‘short courses’ or ‘fast-track training’. However, the treatment techniques you'll learn are similar, and in some cases more extensive than on a level 3 course.
No, you don't need a level 3 qualification in order to deliver this therapy professionally. However, some employers and some London Borough Councils may specify a level 3 qualification as a requirement.
You will be provided with your manual in PDF format and once you’ve read it you will be able to complete your on-line test paper, a simple, multiple choice test with 45 questions. Our administration team will also chat with you to let you know what to bring so that you are perfectly prepared and have a great time.
There are no video tutorials for this course, however you will find that the manual is fully annotated with all of the photos, diagrams and illustrations that are required to act as a memory aid after your practical course.

Theory & Practical

This is the background and theory that you study from home and then complete an online test paper before attending your practical training. It is easily completed with between 8-12 hours of study time. For some people it may take a little longer.
