Reiki Certification


Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of healing and self-improvement that everyone can use.  

Reiki system was created by Dr. Masao Usui in Japan, and it is administered by "laying of hands'.  

Though Reiki system originated in Japan, hands-on healing methods has been practiced by many cultures for thousands of years - it is a very universal healing method.

Reiki is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. 

It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.  

Because of the reasons above, being certified to use Reiki is tremendously beneficial for medical and therapeutic professionals, yoga and movement teachers, parents, and/or anyone whose work is to care for others. 

Our Reiki Certification Courses are co-taught by Manu Del Prete and Aki Hirata- Baker.  

You will have a unique opportunity to learn from two masters who works together to bring various aspects of Reiki to life - you will leave feeling empowered and excited about your ability!
