5 benefits of becoming a reiki practitioner

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a form of energy healing that has been practiced for over 100 years. It involves the use of gentle touch or hand placements to channel energy and promote healing in the body, mind, and spirit. If you are interested in becoming a Reiki practitioner, there are many benefits to doing so.

What are the Benefits of Being a Reiki Practitioner?

  1. Help Others: One of the primary benefits of becoming a Reiki practitioner is the ability to help others. As a practitioner, you will have the opportunity to assist people in reducing their stress levels, relieving pain, and promoting healing in their bodies. It can be incredibly rewarding to know that you are making a positive difference in someone’s life.
  2. Improve Your Own Health and Well-being: Practicing Reiki regularly can also have many benefits for your own health and well-being. Reiki can help reduce stress, promote relaxation, and boost your immune system. It can also help you to become more in tune with your own energy and emotions, which can lead to greater self-awareness and personal growth. Reiki is perfect for emotional healing.
  3. Help your pets: Many Reiki practitioners enjoy giving Reiki to their pets. You might consider taking an Animal Reiki course. There are opportunities to volunteer at pet shelters and you can create an Animal Reiki business. Dogs, cats, horses and almost all pets can benefit from Reiki healing.
  4. Connect with Others in a Meaningful Way: Reiki can also help you to connect with others in a more meaningful way. As a practitioner, you will have the opportunity to work closely with clients and you can offer Reiki to your community. Reiki shares are a wonderful way to meet other practitioners and give back to your community. Many practitioners report feeling a sense of connection and purpose when working with clients, which can be incredibly fulfilling.
  5. Earn a Living Doing Something You Love: Finally, becoming a Reiki practitioner can provide you with the opportunity to earn a living doing something you love. While not everyone becomes a Reiki practitioner to make money, many do find that it is a fulfilling and financially rewarding career path. Energy medicine, more and more,  is seen as a viable alternative to Western medicine, especially for pain relief and treating stress and anxiety.

How would you go about Getting Certified as a Reiki Practitioner?

In order to become a Reiki practitioner, you will need to undergo training and receive certification. This usually involves taking classes and working with a Reiki master to develop your skills and knowledge. However, the investment of time and money required to become a practitioner is well worth it for those who are passionate about the practice.

There are 3 main levels to Reiki training. Reiki I is for beginners and teaches you how to treat yourself as well as other people and pets. Reiki II teaches you about the Reiki symbols and you learn how to do distant Reiki. Reiki III takes you even deeper into Reiki training and you learn how to teach others.


In conclusion, becoming a Reiki practitioner can provide many benefits, including the ability to help others, improve your own health and well-being, help your pets, connect with others in a meaningful way, and earn a living doing something you love. If you are interested in becoming a practitioner, it is important to find a reputable Reiki master and undergo the necessary training and certification. With dedication and commitment, you can become a skilled and effective Reiki practitioner and make a positive difference in the world.

Sending you distant healing and a beautiful beam of light to bless you on your Reiki journey.
