Thea is currently registered nationally and internationally with the South African Reiki Masters Association and the Association of Reiki Healers respectively, two professional associations of the local and global Reiki community that seek to promote the practice and benefits of Reiki around the world, and whose underlying philosophy is that together we can do so much more. We simply need to become aware of the color and power of these colors–to support us in our daily lives and even more in conjunction with Reiki. is a certified and experienced Reiki Master, nationally and internationally trained in holistic energy, qualified in Usui Reiki, Reijukido, Karuna® Reiki, Karuna Ki Reiki, Crystal Reiki and Gendai Reiki.

Stay tuned for my next article in which I talk about Reiki in relation to counseling. And as with any other form of healing, the intention to energize oneself with the healing energy of the sun is paramount.
