Anyone can learn Reiki. It is primarily a spiritual practice, and secondly, a healing modality that can enhance any other spiritual, religious, or healing practices.

About Jesse
Jesse is a traditionally trained Reiki Master/Teacher in the original lineage based system of Reiki called Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoho. He started practicing Reiki in 2004 after receiving one Reiki session from his (now) Reiki teacher Robert Fueston and his wife Heather that profoundly changed his life. He became a Reiki Master/Teacher in 2015 after several years of apprenticeship. Reiki for me goes way beyond just a healing practice to help others to heal, it is the foundation for my life, my spiritual practice, and my healing practice. After practicing for over fourteen years, I still feel that there is so much more for Reiki to teach me. In addition to Reiki, I practice Massage and Bodywork, and CranioSacral Therapy. 
His lineage can be traced back to Mikao Usui, the founder of Reiki.  If you are looking to learn the simple art of traditional Reiki as a spiritual self practice or to start a healing practice to benefit others the traditional system of Reiki is absolutely the best place to begin or enhance your journey in the healing arts.
Reiki Classes and Sessions
You are initiated into a practice, you are initiated into a lineage.
Your choice in your Reiki teacher is very important and can mean the difference between a truly enjoyable lifelong practice and a meaningless weekend class.

Shoden is the foundation for the whole Reiki system where you will learn the techniques for the spiritual practice of Reiki that leads to the healing of yourself and others. This includes the hands on practice for treating yourself and others, the Reiki precepts, Reiki history, and additional Reiki techniques for specific illnesses. 
Whether you are looking to start a career in the healing arts, want to enhance your existing healing or medical practice, are looking for a deeper connection to the source in your spiritual or religious practice, or for your own self healing and spiritual growth.
