Reiki Courses

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a natural healing technique which reinforces the body’s natural ability to heal itself.  Reiki energy balances, heals and harmonises the body, mind, emotions and spirit.  It is one of the gentlest and most effective yet powerful techniques available. Reiki can support and enhance other forms of treatment and is a tradition which is open to any belief system.

Enjoy a relaxing time over 2 days (5 hours each day) in a small, friendly group learning how to use Reiki on yourself with Ruth Handley, an experienced UK Reiki Federation Master Teacher.  Students receive 4 attunements to Reiki energy, a comprehensive handbook, Usui Reiki lineage, a certificate of attendance and an invitation to a monthly Reiki share meeting.


This course is for those people who have learnt to use Reiki on themselves and now wish to deepen their understanding of Reiki and to use Reiki informally on family, friends and pets.  During this course, of 3 separate days over a 2 month period, students receive 1 further attunement (Second Degree) to Reiki energy, tuition in how to use Reiki informally, yet safely and effectively, on family, friends and pets, learn the 3 sacred symbols with their names and uses, (including the Distant Healing symbol) as well as demonstrations of the techniques and practical sessions. 

PROFESSIONAL PRACTITIONER COURSE (Incorporating National Occupational Standards for Reiki – levels 1 & 2)

For those who wish to offer Reiki to members of the general public,and following the Reiki First Degree course taken with me earlier, this part-time course prepares the student to become a Professional Reiki Practitioner giving a proficient Reiki treatment safely, confidently and competently.  This course meets the specific requirements of professional practice as laid down in the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for Reiki and the Reiki Council’s core curriculum.
