As the practice of Reiki grows more and more globally, there is also an equal amount of Reiki practitioners who offer services in different areas of your state. This is good, as there would be many options for you to choose from with different styles and approaches, and a greater possibility of finding a suitable Reiki master for you.




Considering who your energy healer should be is one of the top things to do when you are thinking of starting your Reiki journey. It’s not just about the colorful flyers that a Reiki master is advertising or a spacious and lavish place that the healing sessions are held. Knowing the practitioner, his background, and character, and his skills and years of practice is essential before scheduling an appointment to a particular Reiki master. That Reiki master should be able to meet your particular needs.


Here are some points to consider in choosing the right energy healer for you.


  • Ask from family and friends. Referrals are a great way to finding a reputable and skilled healer. There are no better people who can tell you if their sessions were effective than your relatives and significant others. You’ll know the smallest things, such as if they were comfortable with the practitioner, if they would recommend that particular practitioner, or if the place was clean, fresh and relaxing. You can also them questions so you will know more about the practitioner. Is he good-natured or impatient? Do you think he has issues with certain things? Is he a delight to talk with? Answers to these questions will help you know the healer better.




  • Gather information about the practitioner’s credentials and Reiki level of competence. It doesn’t only take months or a year to be an efficient Reiki healer so it is important that you gather details about this. You can ask around or simply call him/her. Experience matters, as is it a known fact that there are still no courses and state examinations that practitioners are required to take before they can practice.


  • Be intuitive and observe rapport and body language. Once you get an appointment or a first consult, trust in how you feel about the practitioner. When you’re keen, you will always know from body language some good and bad points. Does he have a genuine smile on his face? Is he soft spoken? Does he listen to you? Is he honest? And here, honesty can mean that the practitioner may frankly tell you that there are certain aspects of your problems or issues that he can’t do something about, and the decision to hire the practitioner is solely yours to make.


  • Assess the level of training and teaching. When you decide to give it one try, you can then evaluate the practitioner’s training level and quality of teaching. Each individual has his own reason for turning to Reiki, and a practitioner also has his own way of healing. You must determine whether or not your needs are met by a particular Reiki healer. If you want to get rid of negative emotions, find a practitioner who has more experience in emotional healing. If you need help with pain relief in the joints or some parts of your body, find a practitioner who has had years of training in relieving body aches and pains. This way your treatment is more specific and structured to your needs.




  • Look for a practitioner who is confident, empathic and someone who has no inner blockages himself. Remember that he will be transmitting his energies to you in order that you will heal. How can he do that if he has his own negative baggage to manage? No one is spared from emotional struggles and problems, but a reliable and efficient practitioner is able to get over his own struggles by being a reflection of peace and happiness. Meaning that he must look happy, peaceful and confident in order to be efficient and reliable. You need positive vibes, not more of the negative ones!
