I am dedicated to providing you with the finest quality REIKI Training so you will discover
Self-empowerment, Compassion,
Oneness and the ability to heal yourself and others.

The certified training and degree attunements offered by Traditional USUI SHIKI RYOHO Master/Teacher Rev. Dr. Nancy A. Nester, RMT offer a course of study in the fastest growing and most sought after Hands-On Healing Certification. You will be provided with the History, Technique, Symbols, Hand positions, Manual and Certificates for each level of training.

The word REIKI is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So REIKI is actually "spiritually guided life force energy." A REIKI attunement is a process of empowerment that opens your crown, heart and palm chakras and connects you to the unlimited source of REIKI energy.

The properly informed and well-trained REIKI practitioner becomes aware of the subtle changes created by the clearing and release of non-beneficial energy from themselves and from others who receive REIKI. Combined with the commitment for the purity of REIKI, the non-judgmental intention of the practitioner and the attitude of the receiver, REIKI has the ability to bring about miraculous transformation.

During the attunement, and for a time after, changes will be made by the attunement energy that opens your system, enabling you to channel the energy of REIKI through your body. These changes take place metaphysically in the chakras and aura and also in the physical body. An emotional as well as a toxic release can take place as part of this clearing process.

The hands of a REIKI Healer are different from those of other Hands-On Healers or Etheric-Energy Healers. The hands of a REIKI Healer radiate Universal Life Force Energy. The REIKI energy can only be passed through a trained certified REIKI Master/Teacher.

Dr. Mikao Usui designed REIKI to heal the self. It is therefore important that your commitment to REIKI is fully understood. Each level of training and each symbol provided harnesses powerful energetic tools for clearing, releasing and healing specific areas of the body and mind. These bring about life changes through an expanded awareness.

Heritage is very important in REIKI. That is how we can pass on the clear USUI REIKI Methods accurately. We trace our heritage directly to Dr. Mikao Usui through his student Madam HawayoTakata and her granddaughter, Phyllis Furumoto, the REIKI Grand Master of The Reiki Association. Rev. Nester has been instructed and certified as a Reiki Master in the traditional USUI SHIKI RYOHO Japanese method, instructed in the JIKIDEN REIKI method of Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, and the Western traditional Madam Takata REIKI healing method. Rev. Nester has also completed and received training as a certified Tibetan Johrei Reiki Master.

Rev. Nester is additionally a Teacher-Practitioner of Heart & Soul Healing, a method of releasing past energetic dynamics, maintaining a light vibration for self-empowerment and unconditional compassion for all creation.

Your REIKI training will therefore include introduction to basic energetic techniques to heal yourself and to help others maintain the REIKI vibration for their own healing.

REIKI Practitioners trained in the Traditional USUI Method inherit the REIKI Force and the sacred USUI symbols which are imprinted within your very Spirit and Soul. These symbols have an effect on the subconscious mind of both the user and the recipient, causing changes in the internal state of the self. For this reason, the traditional USUI Method is taught in separate parts, allowing for individual process and energetic transformation between degree attunements.



First Degree REIKI is the most intense of all the classes as there is so much to cover. In this weekend course, you will learn the History of REIKI, the REIKI Hand positions, be introduced to the first empowerment REIKI symbol and its name, as well as how to draw and use that symbol for specific conditions.

You will learn about the energy centers of the body and their association to emotional dis-harmony within an individual as well as signals in each person’s body which communicate kinesthetic sensitivity. REIKI was designed to heal the Self. Through three individual REIKI degree attunements, your vibratory level will be adjusted. You will be re-introduced to the REIKI energy in a past life meditation and will further receive the gift of the Violet Flame. You will also be given instruction on the thirty (30) day commitment that will be required following your attunement to the REIKI energy.
