Reiki Healing Center in Tucson

Reiki – pronounced “Ray-Key is a Japanese form of natural healing. Reiki is thought to be re-founded by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Christian minister, in the early 1800s after his worldwide quest to find the keys and power that Jesus and Buddha harnessed to heal the physical body.

Rei means “universal” and refers to the spiritual dimension and the soul. Ki means the vital life force energy which flows through all that is alive.

The Japanese characters, when combined, represent “universal life-force energy.” This life-force energy is channeled directly from the universe, through the practitioner’s crown, and out of the palms of the hands to balance and energize the patient— body, mind/emotions, and spirit.

There are three degrees, or levels, of Reiki.

The First-Degree is a permanent “attunement” to 40% Reiki. Once initiated, it allows a person to channel Reiki energy for healing one’s self and others. The first degree is the foundation of all three degrees, and must first be mastered thoroughly before the person is considered for the next degree.

In the Second-Degree, the student is trained to use appropriate Second Degree Keys (symbols) which provide an increase of power for absent healing and mental/emotional healing. One is permanently “attuned” to the full 100% power of Reiki. The student will learn transitional treatments for helping one to transcend earthly body form. Also, the student will learn to initiate a team treatment.

The Third-Degree designation is the level of Reiki Master, a Teacher of Reiki. One will learn to perform ceremonies or “attunements” for teaching all levels of Reiki. The student becomes teacher and vows to live Reiki. This degree is not for everyone, only those who wish to teach. The Master/Teacher will know who is an appropriate candidate for this third attunement.


Reiki works synergistically with other forms of medicine, even enhancing their effects.

Reiki helps to speed the healing process and provides a source of restoring energy while one is ill, under medical treatment, or in recovery.

Reiki is a useful tool for anyone to learn, to facilitate healing of oneself, one’s immediate environment, and beyond.
