HELPFUL TIP:

How your character makes a living is an important decision. After all, there’s probably a good reason why they chose this career. Think about how they pull on certain talents and skills, have positive or negative traits, and adhere to a specific work ethic to excel. Sometimes characters choose an occupation because of how they were raised, something they experienced, or even an emotional wound, so consider how all of these things will show readers who they are deep down, and why they do what they do.
OVERVIEW:
Reiki is a Japanese healing practice that uses energy to provide physical, mental, and spiritual wellness. Though it is not a religion, it is often associated with spirituality.

A typical Reiki session is performed by a practitioner or master who has been through an attunement process that allows them to channel the healing energy to their clients.
Individual sessions may target a specific illness or injury, or it might focus on an underlying cause (such as stress) that is inhibiting good health.

Because many practitioners in this field will seek out the coveted rank of Reiki Master, those who have already attained this level will often offer training as well as healing services. They may work out of a private practice or in other facilities, such as a hospital, assisted living facility, or spa.

NECESSARY TRAINING:
Reiki Masters must first become practitioners. This is achieved by receiving attunements from a Master that will give them access to Reiki energy so they can channel it to others. Practitioners must then proceed through a series of levels, becoming attuned to various symbols that will increase their power. Once they’ve attained the third level, they will become a Master and will be able to teach. Some practitioners may also undergo an apprenticeship as part of the process.
