Reiki Classes


Reiki instruction and knowledge is transferred to the student during the Reiki class. These classes pass the ability to connect fully and tap directly into the source of this unlimited supply of "life force energy" by way of attunements, placements, experiences, and/or ignitions. Once attuned, the ability to connect to the Reiki energy is never lost.

Reiki classes have traditionally been divided into "levels" or "degrees," each initiating the student into a higher level or vibration of the Reiki energy.

Pre-registration is required for all classes along with a non-refundable deposit. *Although deposits are non-refundable, they may be transferred to a future class within 1 year of the original registration. Call or text Melissa at 803.640.0785 to register.

I offer classes in Aiken and Mauldin (Greenville), SC.  Once you take a class with me, you can attend the same level class again (if taught by me) at no additional charge.  For example, if you take Reiki I with me, you can take any of my Reiki I classes again for free.  You will not receive a new manual or certificate, and you still need to register to ensure space is available.

I accept cash, most major credit/debit cards, Square, and PayPal.  You are required to pay your deposit using the form below.  It will take you to PayPal for processing; however, you do not need a PayPal account.  You will receive the option of paying as a guest using a credit/debit card.

Usui / Holy Fire® Reiki I

The Reiki I course is for beginners in healing. The Reiki I class connects you to the Reiki energy on a level that can be used in any situation to promote healing and wellness. It can be used on yourself, family/friends, animals, and plants.

In this one-day class, you will learn intuitive hand positions, how to give a treatment to yourself or someone else, overview of the chakras, and some shielding techniques. You will also learn energy scanning to detect where reiki is needed (byosen scanning), a simple technique for developing intuition (reiji-ho), and how to clear your energy field (kenyoku).  Class consists of attunements/placements, instruction, discussion and practice time, and includes a manual and certificate.

There is no prerequisite for this class as this level of Reiki is suitable for all individuals.

Cost $325.00  (non-refundable* deposit $100)

 Next class in Aiken SC on November 16, 2019 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm

Usui / Holy Fire® Reiki II


The Reiki II course attunes the student to a higher, more focused vibration of the Reiki energy.  In this one-day class, you will learn three Reiki symbols as well as techniques for healing at a distance, mental/emotional healing, clearing bad habits, and sending Reiki to the past/future.  Class consists of attunements/placements, instruction, discussion and practice time, and includes a manual and certificate.

Prerequisite is Reiki I. However, if you take both Reiki I and II with me, I offer a discount on this class.

Students who received their Reiki I training from another Reiki Master must email their certificate as proof of completion prior to enrolling in this class.

Note, I do not teach Reiki I and II together in one weekend class.  I believe it is important for the student to adjust to the Reiki I energy first before being introduced to the second level.  I have heard from several students who initially took both classes over a 2-day weekend that they found it overwhelming and confusing.  Therefore, I require a 1-month waiting period between Reiki I and Reiki II to allow you to fully assimilate to the Reiki energy at each level. 

Cost if you take Reiki I from me $200.00  (no deposit required)

Cost if taken as a standalone class $325.00  (non-refundable* deposit $100)

Usui Reiki Master 

The Usui Reiki Master course attunes the student to the Master level of energy.  I provide this class as a less expensive option for those who want to practice Reiki at the master level but who do not want to teach.  Please note, you will not be provided with instructions for passing attunements/placements, which is reserved for Master/Teachers.  If you plan to be a Reiki teacher, you should sign up for the Usui/Holy Fire® III Reiki Master/Teacher class instead.  If you take this class with me and later decide you want to teach, I will only charge you the price difference; however, you are required to attend all three days of master/teacher training.

This two-day class consists of an attunement/placement, instructions for using the Usui master symbol and Tibetan master symbol, review of techniques, and practice time.  Class includes a manual and certificate.

This class includes:

  • Use of other healing tools (crystals, essential oils, etc.)
  • How to make and charge a crystal grid for Reiki healing
  • Tips for establishing a business
  • Chakra and aura clearing methods
  • Healing experiences and meditations

Prerequisites are Reiki I and II, 6 months of reiki practice, and acceptance into the training.
