Are you sensitive to the energy of others? Do you pick up on others’ thoughts and emotions? Maybe you sense spirit guides or have visions of those who have crossed over. If so, you may be a natural healer. One way to unleash your healing capabilities is to embrace the energy healing method of Reiki. Read on to discover if Reiki training is for you.
What is Reiki healing?
Reiki is an alternative healing technique that promotes relaxation. During a Reiki massage or session, a Reiki practitioner channels energy into a client through touch, and helps to activate the client’s own healing processes. The job of the Reiki practitioner is to help stimulate the client’s own natural healing response. Let me be clear and put this disclaimer in this blog post: Reiki is no replacement for a medical professional. However, more and more hospitals across the country are acknowledging the power of Reiki and many offer Reiki in addition to their traditional medical services.
You can find a Reiki practitioner, by searching online or checking with your local metaphysical shop. A local yoga studio might also be a place where you can get a recommendation from a Reiki practitioner. However, you can also learn how to use Reiki on your own. If you are a natural healer, you can perform Reiki on yourself, your loved ones or even your pets.

So how can you tell that you are a Reiki healer at heart? Here are some signs:
- You’re interested in psychic ability and other New Age phenomena.

Imagine being able to offer Reiki and help your family members, friends and even pets can begin to feel better! If you’ve ever believed or been told that you have strong healing capabilities, learning Reiki is a way of sharing that gift with the world.
There are places where it is easy to find a Reiki practitioner or a Reiki instructor who can teach you how to do Reiki for yourself. However, what if you don’t live in one of those parts of the country? Are you then unable to experience the healing benefits of a Reiki session or unable to learn how to use Reiki in your own life?
There are resources available that allow you to do Reiki at home.
Ultimately, the decision to learn Reiki in a face to face setting or to learn it through an online training program is up to you. You must go with what feels right in your gut. You may decide that you want to learn it the traditional way in a face to face manner, but you’d like to explore Reiki more thoroughly by taking an online Reiki training course, as well. If you are thinking about starting your own Reiki business, you may want to access online courses to add to your education.
Whatever you do, it’s important that you follow your heart. If you know that you are a healer, Reiki may be the best way for you to let the world experience your gift.
