My partner and best friend, Rev. Iris Petersen, co-founder of this ministry, is a Reiki practitioner. So, I found this release to be of special interest for that reason, but also because I am a fan of Dr. Oz. Perhaps this will be enlightening to you as well.
"If Dr. Mehmet Oz is talking about Reiki, all of America is talking about it and looking for ways to learn about it.” Reiki Master Rose De Dan says that with health being at the top of people’s 2010 resolution list, learning Reiki is a great next step to take, and offers six tips on how to choose the right training.
News Release: Seattle, WA (PRWEB) January 9, 2010 -- Reiki Masters across America and the world had cause for celebration on January 6 when Dr. Mehmet Oz revealed his Ultimate Alternative Medicine Secrets for 2010 during his nationally broadcast afternoon talk show. He ranked Reiki #1. Dr. Oz said, “Reiki is one of my favorites, we’ve been using it for years in the Oz family, and we swear by it.”
Before his popularity as a TV personality through his five-year association with Oprah, Dr. Oz incorporated Reiki into his open-heart surgeries through the assistance of Reiki Master Pamela Miles. On the show, Miles spoke about the benefits of Reiki and offered a demonstration to an audience member who had a headache, which quickly disappeared.
Rose De Dan, Reiki Master and founder of Seattle, WA – based Wild Reiki and Shamanic Healing LLC (Tails of a Healer: Animals, Reiki and Shamanism" is thrilled that Reiki is finally getting the attention it deserves. "If Dr. Mehmet Oz is talking about Reiki, all of America is talking about it and looking for ways to learn about it.”
Reiki is a non-invasive form of energy medicine that balances the body, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually, enabling the body to do what it does best -- heal itself. De Dan explains, “Reiki assists in accelerating healing from injury/illness, promotes relaxation and stress reduction, reduces or eliminates pain. Reiki strengthens the immune system, assists in clearing emotional or physical trauma, and offers quality of life support for those who are aging or in hospice care. Knowing Reiki is like having your own personal healing kit at your fingertips.”
De Dan says that with health being at the top of people’s 2010 resolution list, learning Reiki is a great next step to take. Taking a Reiki class offers people greater personal control over their own health and healing. They can also use it to help others in their family, including their pets. De Dan suggests Googling “Reiki Master” and the name of the city closest to you to find a practitioner in your community. She offers 6 tips on how to choose the right training.
1) Attend a class in person, rather than online, for maximum benefit.
2) Inquire about class size. Small classes offer more personal guidance. Ten students or less is best.
3) Don’t be in hurry. Take training one level at a time for best effect and to integrate the healing energy and changes to your benefit.
4) Find a Reiki Master Teacher who offers ongoing support and guidance and access to a community of Reiki practitioners.
5) Teachers who have active healing practices can offer a wealth of insights and opportunities to support your growth.
6) Years of experience and credentials are good things to check. Trust your intuition in selecting teacher feels best for you.
De Dan says that the general public is still relatively unaware that Reiki is offered as a complementary modality in many U.S. hospitals, as well as worldwide. Outside of hospitals, De Dan says that there are many thousands of Reiki practitioners in the U.S. and millions around the world.
