Love & Compassion Integrative Health and Healing
By Mika Ichihara, M.S., L.Ac.


Reiki Energy Healing Certification Training

Reiki is the most well-known form of energy healing and is used around the world.  Recognized by the modern medical establishment, Reiki is a safe and easy tool for self-healing and daily energetic support.  Grand Master Mika Ichihara shares her unique skills and experience to help you learn this amazing healing tool for your healing, awakening your inner ability and taping into your full potential. 

If you are interested in becoming a healing practitioner, it is important to begin with “self-mastery.” In other words, the quality of a practitioner depends on his/her vibration and the capacity to command the energies of light, love, and compassion to heal oneself and others.

Our Reiki training offers the following 4 levels.

Level 1: Self-Healing Mastery Workshop
Level 2: Reiki Energy Healing Practitioner Training Workshop
Level 3: Reiki - Energy Healing Practitioner Certification Workshop
Level 4: Reiki Teacher Certification Workshop

It is not simply an act of giving, but a complete process of energetic engagement and communication between you as a giver and your receiver. Mika will guide you on how to safely complete the process of giving healing energy to others.  You also learn how to give healing in person and for distant/remote healing.

Mika will share with you advanced healing techniques that are not taught by the Usui Reiki system, but are based on Mika’s extensive clinical experiences.

I am grateful for learning through this program and using this knowledge beyond just Reiki” 03/2013 – Y.S

“When I came to the program, I had just gotten fired from my job and was emotionally and physically drained.  This program really helped me keep my perspective and also helped me remember to focus on myself.  As I was being tested, instead of falling into depression as I have in the past, I was able to become stronger.  Even though I am still working through these issues, how I handle different situations is much healthier than it has been in the past.” J.

December 2008
“The program was extremely in-depth and looked at self-healing on all levels.  I know now that I must not worry about feeling different energies or having visions – I can just be and let the universe guide me.  The aim is to feel good.  I feel all aspects of the program were covered thoroughly and the structure was perfect – it was so quick!”
C.C. March 2008

“Self-healing has shown me there is an accessible lock.  My perception is clearer.  I feel a more seamless connection with myself.  I am so happy with my transformation and still remember how I used to be and how tired I was.  Learning with Mika has given me the awareness of the reality that I was facing the wrong way.  I love the journey of self-discovery and self-love.  I would recommend this to everyone.”
Y.G. March 2008
