The teaching of Reiki outside of Japan is commonly divided into three levels, or degrees. Having completed the first degree course, the participant can treat himself and others with Reiki. In the second degree Reiki course, the student learns the use of three symbols which are said to enhance the strength and distance over which the effect can be exerted. Another atonement is given, which is said to further increase the capacity for Reiki to flow through the student, as well as empowering the use of the symbols.
In Reiki terminology, the word "master" does not imply spiritual enlightenment. Having completed the master training, the new Reiki Master can attune other people to Reiki and teach the three degrees of Reiki. The duration of the master training can be anything from a day to a year or more, depending on the school and philosophy of the Reiki Master giving the training. There is no accreditation body for Reiki, nor any regulation of the practice.
Some traditionalists maintain that any method that teaches Reiki "quickly" cannot yield as strong an effect, because there is no substitute for experience and patient mastery of the art.
Reiki practitioners may encourage their clients to consult a medical doctor for serious conditions, stating that Reiki can be used to complement conventional medicine. You may have tried yoga, meditation or massage but Reiki is a natural complement to these other healing and relaxation practices.
