Traditional Reiki Training
Here at Euphoria Massage & Energetics we do our best to research and practice the most authentic Reiki possible. It is our mission to provide services of Reiki helaing and Reiki training that are the most transformative and powerful to the individuals learning and practicing these techniques and principles by focusing on “inner” or self work first. Much of the curriculum, to include techniques of empowerment that students will learn for themselves are based on mindfulness and meditation practices to calm and relax the student so that they can become more aware and in touch with their own connection with source and universal energy that is intelligent as it works through us.
These techniques are typically more grounded in traditional Japanese teachings of Reiki than other, more wide-spread and well-known Western Reiki that is often, highly associated with the “new age” spiritual movement in the West. There are reasons for this including World War II, but what is important is the authenticity of the person practicing Reiki and of the value and authenticity of the practice itself. One Reiki form is not necessarily worse or better than another. The real questions are, “Does one benefit from the practice of Reiki being learned? Do these practices make some positive change in one’s own life and the lives of others?” To answer that, one must see for themself.
We employ teachings and techniques painstakingly and ongoingly researched and taught by Bronwen and Frans Stiene and the the International House of Reiki, and we teach from the experience in the field of Reiki and Energy work that Jacob Kelly has accrued over more than twelve years. Frans and Bronwen have been writing books on Reiki and teaching it for an even longer time and have shared the beauty and simplicity of this wonderful system of spiritual healing with thousands of people around the globe. Frans Stiene is one of Jacob’s Reiki teachers.

The Reiki Precepts
“For this day only
Do not be angry
Do not worry
Be diligent in your practice/ be honest in your work
Be compassion to yourself and others”
(This is a main part of the system of Reiki as taught by the founder, Mikao Usui.)
Reiki training is available in the form of tiered classes, levels 1, 2, and 3. Jacob Kelly is a certified Reiki teacher -that is level 3 (sometimes referred to as a Master in the West, though becoming a master of anything takes a lifetime of dedication). Jacob continues his Reiki education that began in 2004, by practicing meditation, contemplation of the precepts of Reiki and hands on healing daily. Jacob has been certified to teach under the Usui Shiki Ryhoho lineage since 2005, then received training in the Usui Reiki Shiki Ryoho lineage, and is now Shinpiden (level 3 -“mystery teachings”) certified in the more traditional lineage of Japanese Reiki, Usui Reiki Ryoho which means Usui (the founder’s name) method of healing with Spiritual Energy. This latter lineage -Usui Reiki Ryoho- is the lineage that is taught and passed down in Jacob’s classes. In reality, the lineage of what you learn is probably THE LEAST important thing about the teachings that you receive in Reiki. But lineages are an important way to acknowledge and recognize the different streams of, and contributions to the system of Reiki healing and Reiki practice around the globe.
The most notable difference between what can be delineated as Western Reiki -Reiki that has been changed from the more internal art of the East, to a more external healing method- and the more Traditional Japanese Reiki (what Jacob now teaches) is that the emphasis is less on hands-on healing, though this is certainly a main element of the system, and more on overall spiritual health and growth of the individual practicing Reiki. Self-practice (meditation, getting to know and “be” the precepts of Reiki, and self hands-on healing) are the focus in our system of Reiki. Then, like fire burning in the belly, heart and mind of the practitioner, that light naturally shines outward and is more available to share with others.
