ALTERNATIVE HEALTH / REIKI "The Complete Book of Traditional Reiki offers a comprehensive foundation for beginners and seasoned practitioners alike. Amy Rowland has presented a lucid and straightforward presentation of the Reiki teachings that will serve any sincere student and prove to be a constant source of inspiration for a lifetime of practice. I highly recommended it!" --Lawrence Ellyard, author of Reiki Meditations for Beginners and Reiki: 200 Questions and Answers for Beginners Reiki practitioners direct universal energy into the physical body through hands-on and energy-field healing to support the client in recovering health and reclaiming well-being. An easy-to-learn form of energy medicine, Reiki is becoming commonplace in such conventional settings as hospitals, hospices, and psychotherapy practices because it relaxes, relieves stress, reduces and eliminates pain, accelerates healing, and helps support the gentle restoration of the body's natural balance. It is a unique healing art in that it can be learned by anyone, with no special knowledge of anatomy needed. The Complete Book of Traditional Reiki takes the reader step-by-step through a traditional Reiki level I class. It discusses Reiki's origins and purpose, describes the attunement process by which a student is imbued with the power to channel life-force energy, and gives complete instructions for standard and optional healing hand positions. The first book to serve as a teaching manual, an extensive reference work for students, and compelling reading for those considering taking a Reiki class, this updated edition includes new information on the history of Reiki and the Reiki principles and features never-before-published photographs and a translation of the Usui Memorial in Japan, a tribute to the founder of Usui Reiki. AMY Z. ROWLAND is a certified Usui Reiki master with additional training in Usui Reiki Ryoho, Gendai, and Komyo Reiki. She began her studies in 1987 with Rev. Beth Gray, a Reiki master trained by Mrs. Hawayo Takata, the first Westerner to teach and practice Reiki outside Japan. Rowland teaches workshops on the Reiki principles and on Reiki and intuition and is the author of Reiki for the Heart and Soul and Intuitive Reiki for Our Times. She lives in Pennsylvania.
