- To teach, practice, and promote the Japanese art and system of Reiki.
- To establish and promote credible, professional, and practical standards of Reiki practice.
- To serve as an reliable resource for students, professionals, health care establishments, and the health and wellness community of Michigan.
Founder: Andrew Anders
I am a professional Reiki teacher and liability insured Reiki practitioner trained in:
- Usui Reiki Ryoho as per Frans Stiene of the International House of Reiki (main tradition)
I am also a Certified Reiki Practitioner:
- Based on the Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoho tradition as per Robert Fueston of The Reiki Preservation Society
These two approaches to Usui’s Reiki method form the basis of my teaching style and treatment protocol.
