Spiritual Healing • Path of Empowerment • Treatment for Self and Others • Spiritual Centering Practice

Program Director: Joanna Crespo, MBA, Reiki Teacher
This program is an approved CE provider under NCBTMB (

The Reiki System of Natural Healing was developed in the early 20th century by Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist monk. The word “rei-ki” means “spiritual energy” or “transcendent life force” in Japanese, and the Reiki System was brought to the West over 80 years ago. Increasing acceptance and use in hospitals, hospices, spas and wellness centers has made the Reiki System one of the most in-demand healing modalities in the United States and around the world. The Reiki System (1) uses non-invasive, gentle touch; (2) accelerates the body’s natural healing
processes; (3) supports mental and emotional healing; and (4) gives an overall sense of profound well-being.

Benefits of the Reiki System include:
• reducing stress
• strengthening the immune system
• easing pain and physical discomfort
• balancing and harmonizing emotions
• enhancing mental clarity and creativity
• facilitating personal and spiritual growth

Special Features:
• Uniquely blends the classical Japanese tradition with the Western Reiki style
• Highly experiential classes
• Grounded, professional training
• Experienced teachers dedicated to personal and professional Reiki practice
• Every class includes demonstrations and supervised, hands-on practice
• Mentoring and answering questions is provided outside of class
