Where the relaxation response is then used to promote the health and well-being of the client. Many training programs are two to three weekends in length.

Uses a complex mix of techniques, presence, wave mechanics, grounding and styles which are not limited to but often include producing oscillatory effects and a reduction in inflammatory response which are tailored to the clients needs. Often modulates or changes electro-dermal skin response within specific patterned sequences. Operates in frequency ranges that extend from 3Hz to 8GHz that can be confirmed in laboratory testing. (Many training programs are three to four years in length.) These programs are generally a minimum of 250 hours of training.

Uses the “Reiki” wave and a set of channeled/symbolic attunements to establish connection to a defined pulsed wave which has it’s own consciousness which moves through the practitioner and into the client supporting health and healing. There are over 150 variations of Reiki and variations of the symbols currently being used in this process in the US at this time.
