First Degree - Hands-On Healing

Within Western Reiki, there are three levels of training.  As you move up the levels, new ways of healing as well as new ways of thinking are opened up to the Reiki practitioner.  There is also an increase in the amount of Reiki that you can channel at any given time.  
First Degree is primarily concerned with the practice of hands-on healing.  For the ambitious Reiki practitioner who wishes to learn more and possibly move on to Second Degree, this is a time to practice and acquaint yourself with the different feelings and sensations you will feel in your hands, the intuitions and instincts you will learn to follow, as well as the incredibly diverse effects that Reiki will have upon you and those whom you practice upon.  
Although some Reiki Masters teach both First and Second Degrees together, most teachers agree that a gap of approximately three months should be left before moving on to the Second level.  This is due to the fact that it takes roughly this length of time for the First Degree initiate’s energies to settle.  Many people also experience subtle but powerful shifts occurring within themselves and their lives within these first three months of connecting with the Reiki energy.  So the three month gap is a sort of energetic buffer zone, allowing the first stages of energy to take their effects and for the dust from these effects to settle.  
This is also a period for the First Degree practitioner to practice her newly acquired art.  The more you practice Reiki on yourself within this period, the more significant and powerful the shifts will be in your body, heart, mind and spirit, as well as increasing your understanding of how Reiki works and affects people.  The more you practice on other people, and the wider the range of problems, conditions, injuries etc that you treat, the more experience you will acquire of the differing sensations and intuitions that you will pick up on when treating others.  Experience is the best teacher, and the more you use Reiki, the more you will learn, and the more you will benefit from it.  Just like a muscle, the more you exercise it, the stronger it becomes, and the more experienced you will become in understanding and using this amazing energy.
First Degree opens up your physical body, to channel healing energy through your hands for the first stage of your personal healing journey with Reiki.




"Jo taught me reiki 1 and reiki 2 in 2007. Her teaching was clear and powerful, and set me out on my journey of healing myself and others. I will be forever grateful. "


"Jo was my reiki master for Reiki 1 and 2. I have found Reiki to be a powerful, grounding and intuitive tool both for myself and others. It is practical and profoundly spiritual all at the same time. It has stayed with me in every day life, building my energy awareness from feeling the energy in a cup of tea to a tree. I was looking for someone I trusted to guide me through these intense, wonderful experiences - I found that in Jo. She is welcoming and supportive and has a strength of spirit that is inspiring to be around. I would recommend working with Jo to anyone who feels that they want to take the next step into energy work and healing."


"When I received my First Degree attunement from Jo, I was moved by her attention to detail, which is obviously born not only from her passion for the subject, but I felt also because she is doing the work she is meant for. I felt completely comfortable in my understanding of the history and tradition supporting Reiki healing and teaching and I was excited to begin my journey. After my attunement I knew I found a new way forward and that my life was forever changed for the better."


"Jo is a genuine modern day shaman and an amazing Energy worker and Reiki Master. She provides a safe, non-judgemental healing space for her deeply powerful transformational treatments which have helped me to release my own fears and self-imposed limitations and realise my true self and potential. Deep Healing indeed! She is also an inspirational teacher; I owe my love of tarot reading to her expert tuition and the energetic training I've received on her Reiki courses has enriched my personal and professional life beyond measure."


"I have done Reiki One and Two with Jo and received distance healing too. Jo works with absolute intergrity and the depth of the healing she offers is also matched by her eloquence and ability to talk about what she is doing and why. I felt very empowered not only from learning Reiki but by Jo's support and presence too. I would recommend Jo completely"


"Joanna inducted me into Reiki and as a consequence changed my very existence. She later took me through Reiki 2 and as a further consequence I have, in a far lesser manner, touched the lives of others. Joanna IS Spirit - she lives and breathes it and imparts it upon those around her as an expression of the Goddess. Her powers of healing are mighty, because she understands the source and the vibrations that feed and nourish her with such. "
