As today’s fast-paced lifestyle becomes extremely demanding, ‘taking a break’ means more than just saying it. People get tired no matter how strong they think they are. To replenish themselves, they find different ways to relax so they will be at their best once again. This could be in a form of a staycation, a warm and aromatic bath, or a stress reduction technique.
If you would like to bring such relaxation, whether to your loved ones or to a complete stranger (your future customer), then working in the pampering industry might be for you. To help you get started, why not choose a complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) like Reiki.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is one of the most popular choices for healing, especially when it comes to stress reduction, energetic re-balancing, and relaxation. It is an all-natural and physical healing practice wherein experienced individuals direct their healing energy to the recipient’s body.
How Do You Practice Reiki?
If you are interested in becoming a Reiki practitioner, all you need is to find a course that will help you be more sensitive to your surrounding environment and to your own and other people’s energy.
Here, Vagabond Temple is going to discuss the things you should consider when looking for a Reiki Level 1, 2, and 3 class.
The Teacher’s Experience
Reiki is a hands-on and complicated practice, which is why you have to make sure that your teacher is well equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge. Interview them and ask how many years they have been practising and teaching Reiki, what their lineage is, and how they teach and support their students.Look for Ones That Offer the Basics
This tip is extremely important, especially if it is your first time taking a Reiki class. Ask the teacher what the class will offer and what pointers they will discuss. Ask them the following so they would know that you are serious about learning Reiki:
1. Do you have enough in-class practice time?
2. Will you discuss protocols and rules about teaching Reiki to other people and students?
3. Am I going to learn about the history of Reiki and where it all started?
You will most likely need these in the future, especially when your students start asking questions about the practice.
Ask for the Price
This might seem like a no-brainer, but this one is extremely important. ‘You get what you pay for’, as the common saying goes.
If the deal seems too good to be true, then it most probably is. Those teachers that offer Reiki classes for much lower fees might not be able to teach you the correct ways to apply it to other people, which is basically what you should be learning about.
Look for reviews and talk to their previous students (if possible) to make sure that you will be getting the information you need from the class.
Preparing for your Reiki class is vital to the learning process, so do not skimp on it. Good luck and enjoy the experience!
