Overview

Millions of people seek ways to relax, promote healing, or connect with their soul. Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a simple but profound healing system that was originally developed in Japan. Reiki means "spiritual energy" or "universal life-force energy." The Reiki system is universal because it can be used by people of any background or religion. Reiki For Dummies explains how you can harness this energy for yourself.

  • Find and get the most from a Reiki treatment
  • Use Reiki to boost your physical and emotional health
  • Locate a Reiki class and become a Reiki practitioner

Reiki For Dummies is amply illustrated and full of useful information on:

  • Reiki symbols (plus nontraditional symbols)
  • Reiki hand positions (for giving Reiki to yourself or others)
  • Reiki for pets and animals
  • Reiki for children and adults
  • Reiki and surgery or medicines
  • Reiki at birth or end-of-life
  • Reiki in the house, in the car, or at work

As a 7 year Reiki Practitioner and Reiki Master-Teacher I found this book to be perfect for students that needed less to read through. They were able to remember the information more quickly as it was an easier read then other Reiki manuals. I now use Reiki for Dummies as well as the traditional Reiki manuals for the Reiki classes I teach.

As one who has been very intrigued by Reiki for quite some time, I have read many books on this subject. Throughout all of my research I have found 2 books to be above the rest. Reiki for Dummies is Number One in my opinion. This is THE BEST most thorough book I have found on the subject and though I have yet to begin my reiki journey, this book has aided me in learning the facts and the benefits of this practice. The second book that I would reccomend is the Reiki source book. Link in the recommendations!
