Traditional Japanese Reiki

Reiki is a spiritual healing system developed by Mikao Usui around 1900 from Taoism, Buddhism,  and principles of Classical Chinese Medicine.  Usui, a lay Buddhist practitioner, developed a technique that was simple, compassionate, and easy to learn. This system became known as Reiki in the west, where it has undergone considerable changes over the past few decades. There are now many variations of the system representing blends of Reiki and Yoga practices, in addition to modern metaphysical and spiritual thought. Reiki works at all levels of our being as recipients, and opens us to powerful facilitation capabilities as practitioners. Reiki training teaches us how to be present for, and channel the boundless healing energy all around us. Reiki is not a religion, and it does not conflict with any religious practice.

The instructor, Bruce Davis, has been teaching Reiki since 1994, and has trained many professional practitioners from all walks of life. The system taught in these classes is called Traditional Japanese Reiki (TJR) and is a close reconstruction of the original teachings of the system, as developed by the founder. TJR was developed by internationally known Reiki teacher, Dave King, in the mid-1990s as a result of his exploration of Reiki in Japan. Each class is a combination of theoretical principles and direct application in student sessions. Further study and practice is required between each practitioner level. The class offerings listed below are held in the Cincinnati area by appointment only. Classes can be provided outside the Cincinnati area for a modest travel fee. Follow-up and support is provided after training. These private group classes can be scheduled upon request, and can be customized to your experience level, and professional needs. Group rates are also available. A nominal travel charge may apply for classes conducted outside the Cincinnati metropolitan area.
