What is the difference between Traditional, Holy & Shamanic Reiki?

Applies to: Those interested in learning more about the difference between Traditional Reiki, Holy Reiki & Shamanic Reiki. 

Reiki is one of the more widely known forms of energy healing. Considered a complete system of holistic healing and personal development, Reiki is an ancient Japanese practice using “Universal Life Energy” or “God-directed Energy” for self-healing, the healing of others, developing higher consciousness, and fulfilling a spiritual purpose. At SWIHA we have found that just as there are different learning styles, there are different healing styles. 

*All Reiki courses are on-campus only*

  • Traditional Reiki 
      • Traditional Reiki is a journey of self-discovery, personal healing, and becoming a vessel of healing for others. Traditional Reiki is taught based on the techniques and protocols handed down for generations from Madame Takata’s lineage.
  • Shamanic Reiki 
      • Shamanic Reiki is a form of healing that incorporates personal healing, transformation, and regeneration through access to a ‘higher power’, ceremony, and time-tested protocols. The word Shaman means ‘spiritual healer’ or, ‘one who sees in the dark’ – which perfectly describes the Reiki experience.
  • Holy Reiki
      • Holy Reiki acknowledges the healing power of Christ and calls upon the name of the ‘most high’ to create current-day healing. Holy Reiki is bible-based and Christ-centered. Holy Reiki honors and respects all traditions, denominations, beliefs, and walks of faith. This approach is for those who follow the teaching of Christ and wish to draw from the healing principles of hands-on healing as taught in the Bible, as well as evident-based Reiki protocols used in hospice and the medical communities.
