Reiki is a Japanese word that means 'Universal Life Force Energy'. Simply put, this ‘hands-on’ therapy restores our physical, mental and emotional imbalances into original state of wellness. Once you learn the technique on how to channel the abundance of natural resource that is energy, it will be with you the rest of your life as a way to heal yourself, to heal others and any living beings such as animals and plants. It is not based on a belief system of any sorts – but simply follows the natural law of physics. You can be a conduit of Reiki energy so long as you do your daily practices. One of the most important aspects of Reiki is the following principle:


Only for Today,
Do not get angry
Do not worry
Be grateful
Work deligenty and
Be Kind to others


A few benefits which everyone can obtain from Reiki are the reduction of tiredness and stress, the relief of physical and emotional pain, the increase of vital energy and happiness, and the shifting of old habitual patterns. 

The Reiki courses offered here are practitioner training programs. To learn Reiki for your personal development and for self-care, please refer to Shima Healer Within™.

Participant Voices:

"I took up to Level 3 (Reiki Master) from 2012 to 2013 with Akiko. My base knowledge of Reiki was from Usui Reiki over 10 years ago and Kundalini Reiki since 2011. I understood Akiko's deep knowledge came from her quest and embodiment of many lineages. Her practical and concise manner of instruction helped me to gain a new perspective of Reiki as a form of energy work and experience the subtle differences in the modalities. Akiko is a teacher who is dedicated to learning and truly lives by the principle of Reiki. I am very grateful for the opportunity to learn Reiki from her."
