Reiki Ryoho Okuden Kuki (Level 2 part 2)

In addition to equipping the practitioner with techniques for self-healing and assisting others, this course is part 2 of Okuden, which focuses on more self-help tools as well as those for friends and family. While many Reiki Master/Teachers offer a full set of levels 1 & 2 at once, we believe it's preferable for  the student to spend more time working with level 2 in order to become familiar with its energies before attempting additional skills.

Level 2 is the beginning of what many practice as "Medical Reiki" however in Japan it is called Ryoho, Medical Treatment using energy. It includes the ability to treat yourself and others in a variety of ways for relieving pain, increasing health and wellness, balancing the body's energies, etc.

What follows are explanations of the main points taught in this course. The student is given them with the understanding that each will find their way to their own best path for learning Reiki Ryoho at their own pace; what matters most is that they gain sufficient experience in using the Reiki Ryoho techniques they are taught in order to gain an understanding of what level 2 is meant to provide.


In this class the student can expect discussions on the following:

  • How to Explain Reiki to others I

  • Intentions & Consent

  • Hand Placements (students may be asked to have a volunteer arrive in the afternoon)

  • Beaming Reiki

  • Distance Healing

  • Frequency of Treatments

  • How to end a treatment & after care of the practitioner

  • Other uses of Reiki

Students will receive:

  • 2 Reiki Symbols

  • Distance Healing Grid

  • Quartz Crystal Point & 4 Rose Quartz Crystals

At the conclusion of this class the student will be able to share Ryoho Reiki with friends and family.

The level 2 certificate is necessary to continue to Level 3 Master level.

My Usui Reiki Lineage

Every Reiki practitioner should be able to trace their lineage back to Usui Sensei. When you learn Reiki your teacher's lineage becomes your own. This also ensures that the teaching and sharing being done is the same style and method true to Usui Sensei.
