We explain the differences in full Eastern and Western on our course as we believe the students should have a full understanding.

We discovered Reiki in Goa India prior to 1980 at this time Reiki was not introduced to the UK It was still rippling form its source in Japan. I was lucky simply because i saw it slowly being introduced into the UK. Upon me first seeing Reiki in Goa India i was hooked and I had to find out what this amazing energy and system was. Upon me returning to the UK my research continued and I started to attend Reiki groups that was starting to appear at this time. Its funny yet amazing but at my first encounter in Goa India I knew what I would be doing to this day. I later attended my 1st 2nd and 3rd degree master’s course by my lovely Master who I was introduced to. and December 2015 I became the only and 1st Accredited Reiki Training provider in the Northwest of England by the UK's Largest Complimentary Therapist organisation the Federation of Holistic Therapist (FHT).

  • What is a Reiki Lineage?
    A Reiki Lineage is almost like a Pets Pedigree our Reiki Lineage clearly shows us all our past Masters. Let me show you my Lineage. Dr Mikao Usui 1922 - (1st Generation) ​ Chujiro Hayashi 1925 - (2nd Generation) ​ Hawayo Takata 1936 - (3rd Generation) ​ Iris Ishikura 1980 - (4th Generation) ​ Arthur Robertson 1982 - (5th Generation) ​ Jeanine Sande 1989 - (6th Generation) Judith Tripp Chasin 1992 - (7th Generation) Sarah Hulme 1993 - (8th Generation) ​ Ethel Kilroy 1997 - (9th Generation) ​ Martin Robert Thirlwell Mfht Mchp CNHC Reg 2014 - (10th Generation) As we can clearly see 1st Generation Mikao Usui Sensei taught 2nd Generation Chujiro Hayashi, who then taught Mrs Hawayo Takata etc etc. Reiki Tradition School of Reiki are 1 of 2 companies in the Whole of the UK where we operate a Reiki Lineage Tracing System.

Our work at Reiki Tradition School of Reiki is Conservation of Reiki and its Lineages giving future Reiki Students the history of our past Masters.
  • Do you do home visits?
    Yes i do home visits but usually these are for terminally ill end of life clients who cant make the journey to the Therapy Rooms.
  • Other than Courses, do you do Reiki Healing Treatments>
    Yes of course, we are open 24/7. I visit a lot of Hospitals ranging from Sheffield, North Wales and as high up as Lancaster, Kendal and Barrow in Furness. my Private healing surgery is very busy clients usually have to wait at least 8-9 weeks on average for appointments.
  • What are your own Qualifications to teach
    I have a level 4 Teachers Qualification allowing me to work, teaching in any environment with both adults and children. I also hold a pass degree Diploma Certification for Past Life Regression and Psychoanalyses.
  • Where are your premises?
    We trade from our lovely, tranquil and relaxing therapy Rooms based in the picturesque village of Springhead Oldham in Lancashire we have been at the Therapy Rooms for the past 10 years.
  • What Aftercare is in place for Students?
    due to the Core Curriculum and National Occupational Standards we adhere to plus our own Accreditors. We can honestly say our Aftercare is 2nd to none. Our phone is switched on 24/7 365 students often contact us either by Social Media, Email, Text, Phone, Messenger and WhatsApp. We also run several events throughout the year where Students can attend meet like minded people and a chance to network. Students know they can contact us any time day or night.
  • What is the difference between Online and classroom based courses?
    To answer this question politically correct. When we fully understand the Original System and Style of Eastern Reiki that Usui Sensei re-discovered in 1922. At this time the Japanese people tried to keep it specifically for Japan and Japanese people. they knew at this time if this got to the Western World then it would be stripped of all the elements and new systems and styles would take over. This is something we are witnessing today its happened. Reiki was always designed to be taught 'Master Present' simply because its a spiritual exchange of energy from Master to Students. Reiki was first introduced into the UK in 1980 so yes its still relatively new everything seemed to be ok for 10 years and around 1990 we started to see new Systems, Styles being created. one of the new changes happening in the last 5 years are Online Course offering Reiki at ridiculous prices as low as £20. I have to emphasize anyone training via a online course will not be able to gain insurance nor become a member of any leading organisation, federation or society which may seriously impact there business later on. Reiki has to remain classroom based.
  • How many students are on a course?
    At Reiki Tradition School of Reiki we believe in a more 1-2-1 environment rather than classroom based. we only allow 6 students on any course this way we are confident we are working 100% with each student and that each student has ample time practising.
  • What is your Price Guarantee?
