Online Reiki Master Certification:

I have always been fascinated by energy and holistic healing arts and of them, Reiki especially has been of great interest to me. So when I found Adele and Gary’s Certified Usui Reiki Master Self Study Course, it certainly caught my attention.

Since I offer online training as well, I know it can work well if the course is well designed, properly thought out, affordable and a product of love and passion.  I am happy to say that this course is really all that and more.

If you are interested in self healing or becoming a Certified Reiki Practitioner or even a Reiki Teacher, I suggest checking out this program.  It is really comprehensive and Reiki, like other holistic sciences, can certainly transform your entire being and life for the better :-).
