What to Look for in a Reiki Practitioner

Like beautiful flowers, Reiki practitioners vary widely

How to find a reiki practitioner

I am always getting requests from people to help them find a Reiki practitioner for a friend or relative

In order to do this, I Google ‘Reiki practitioners, city, state’ to help find them a practitioner. Typically, in any given location, there will be numerous Reiki practitioners that show up in the Google search. From the list of Reiki practitioners on the screen, I begin clicking through their links for their websites, searching for their level of Reiki training, their amount of experience, their services offered, their blog posts and any reviews or testimonials.

What are the types of reiki sessions offered? In-person vs. remote

Distance Reiki sessions

Now, however, we are in different times. Once the Pandemic changed our lives, most professionals in the healing arts have had to adjust how they work with clients. As a result, in my own practice, I have shifted to providing only ‘remote’ Reiki sessions, which in the world of Reiki, is called ‘distance Reiki sessions.’ Providing distance Reiki sessions has been a familiar practice to me for over 20 years, as it has always been an integral part of my Reiki practice. It is simultaneously amazing and comforting to realize how brilliantly effective remote Reiki sessions are when held over the many different options, like Zoom. “Nothing like receiving self-healing energy treatments in the comfort of your own home, on your own couch or bed.

How much and what types of reiki training has the reiki practitioner had?

Not all Reiki training is alike

Over the past 20 years, I have personally studied and trained under at least ten different Reiki Masters. Much of my Reiki training was through William Rand and the ICRT. I am very impressed with Holy Fire® Reiki, which is a combination of the original Usui Reiki, and the highly refined Holy Fire® Reiki. As a practitioner and teacher of Reiki for decades now, I have witnessed and felt how the Reiki energies have been changing, improving, and refining over the years.

Ideally when looking for a Reiki practitioner, I am interested to see if they have Holy Fire® Reiki training, and to see if they have undertaken repeated Reiki Master trainings

I also check to see if they’ve studied other types of Reiki like Jikiden Reiki. I prefer to receive Reiki sessions from someone who has years of experience practicing Reiki and who continues to learn and to study the various aspects of their field. That being said, however, Reiki is effective at all times, even when coming through a newly attuned Reiki practitioner.

How much experience does the reiki practitioner have working with different types of clients?

Holding the healing space

I find it is also important to find someone with Reiki experience who understands how to hold the healing space for you in your self-healing Reiki session. Early in my self-healing career, I was blessed to be mentored for 8 years on how to hold the healing space while receiving my own self-healing sessions. Nothing replaces experience when working with clients, I personally feel like I have been in ‘Reiki Graduate School’ for decades and that every time I work with someone, I learn more about self-healing; how to allow and support it.

How does the reiki practitioner take care of their own self-healing needs?

Intuitive Mentors

It is important to understand the value of periodically working with healing and intuitive mentors when one is navigating their own self-healing of their own life history. Developing a self-care routine is essential to providing support for you on all levels. Weekly, I alternate between receiving either a massage or an acupuncture session. Occasionally, I will add other types of body work to the mix as needed. I receive Reiki from others on a weekly basis and do Reiki self-sessions on myself daily.
