Reiki is a non-intrusive, gentle and relaxing healing method, Reiki is not a religion and Reiki is available to everyone. Anyone can learn this gentle method of healing. If you would like to learn Reiki just for yourself or perhaps you want to train to become a Qualified Reiki Practitioner, then we have the correct course and way of training for you. You may choose to learn Reiki for your own personal use which is a great tool to use for relaxation and healing for yourself, friends and family, pets and animals or maybe you would like to work in a professional capacity in a professional environment such as Hospitals, Hospices or Care homes. Maybe you are already working as a Reiki Practitioner in these environments and still require Accreditation, then our Reiki Practitioner course is for you.

Reiki Tradition have set an easy to use learning structure, which is flexible for you, so you can learn when you are ready and at a steady pace. We also offer a unique payment plan where you have the options to pay in one go or as each section is reached.


Reiki Tradition became an Accredited Reiki Training Provider on the 22nd December 2015. We are proud to offer Accreditation Standard to all our students and we are proud to offer the new style qualification in Reiki training: the ’Reiki Practitioner Course’, which is a qualification to practice Reiki as a practitioner and leads to the Reiki Practitioner Course Diploma certification. The accreditation from the FHT confirms that the course meets the required number of hours, Attunements, content, case studies and treatments as specified by the Core Curriculum and the NOS. Those wishing to work within NHS Hospital environments, or hospices are increasingly being required to have trained to this recognised level.


The Reiki Community are constantly working together to review content and minimum standards in Reiki training. A new Core Curriculum for Reiki was published in July 2017 by the CNHC. This Core Curriculum was first published in 2007 (revised in 2008, 2012 and in 2017). The Core Curriculum sets minimum standards for Reiki training and is inclusive of the NOS and the RQF. The Core Curriculum sets minimum number of contact hours which you should have with your tutor, the number of case studies, treatments and practical observations you should undertake and all relevant course content.


If you are considering Reiki for yourself to use in a non-professional environment, then you do not require an Accreditation. Our non-accredited Reiki 1st and 2nd Degree courses will meet your needs. You will receive a Standard Certificate stating that you have attained the Reiki 1st or 2nd Degree Level. This is not classed as an ‘Accredited’ course and the certificate will not stipulate ‘Accredited’.


If you are considering Reiki training for professional use, then our set course structure ’Reiki Practitioner Course’ which is inclusive of Reiki 1st and 2nd Degree is the course you require. As a result of this course you will become an Accredited Qualified Reiki Practitioner and our Accredited Qualification Diploma certification will be presented on completion. Our Reiki Practitioner Course is classed as an academic degree in Reiki. This training takes place over a minimum period of 9 months.


The Reiki Practitioner Course consists of 65 hours of guided learning / contact hours with your Reiki Master and the completion of 75 documented Reiki treatments on others, 100 documented treatments on yourself (self or received) and 5 practical observations.

Please note that you CANNOT achieve a Reiki Degree over the internet. A lot of websites offer Reiki Training which specify you can ‘become a reiki practitioner / healer’. Becoming a Reiki Practitioner requires the student to be initiated by Attunements from a Reiki Master. This is an ancient process which is impossible to be done over the internet. Such websites are misleading and are just after your money! 


At Reiki Tradition we are committed to passing on the Dr Usui system of healing correctly to all our students’ in its ancient form and teaching the correct symbols. Our overall advice is to check any Reiki Master's qualifications to make sure they have not been achieved via an online course.
