What is Reiki? DragonFly Release - Reiki Training
Everyone’s experience of Reiki will be different and there are many styles of Reiki being taught today, many of which bear little resemblance to the original teachings of its founder, Mikao Usui. Jeff Phillips is a fully qualified Reiki Master/Teacher, having received his training from Reiki Evolution in the UK.
At Dragonfly Release our teachings closely follow the material developed by Taggart King, the founder of Reiki Evolution. This is a very simple, uncluttered style which is easy to follow as you take your first steps towards bringing Reiki into your life.
We recognise that everyone learns in different ways and at a different pace. To this end initial training is undertaken at your own pace in your own home using a detailed manual and other media as study aids – provided on flash drive. As your Reiki Master/Teacher, Jeff will be available to you during this time via email, and telephone if appropriate, should you have any questions about your learning.
You will arrive at the practical training with already knowing much of the theory behind the Usui method of Reiki. This will help ensure you gain the most from your practical training.
The manuals and media are yours to keep so that you may refer back to them after your practical training. Following the practical training you will be invited to contact Jeff and secure your personal 21 day support package to help you establish your own daily Reiki routine within your life.

This Acupressure and Meridian Massage course is designed to teach students the basics concepts and techniques used in acupressure and meridian massage. This course focuses on identifying and treating musculoskeletal conditions using acupressure and meridian massage principles and techniques.
The ancient practitioners of China spent thousands of years perfecting their system of massage. While they use the terms acupoint, meridian and qi, in this course, we update the language and discuss the concepts of trigger points, neurovascular nodes, myofascial meridians and how mechanical force is transmitted through predictable pathways in the body.
Students will learn the principles of how acupressure works and what it can be used for, including cautions and contraindications.
With a modern understanding of acupoints, meridians, and “energy,” we then move to section two, where students learn seventeen different manual techniques to treat the body's connective tissues. The techniques are broken down step by step, detailing body mechanics, hand positions, and areas of application.
In sections three and four, students will learn how to locate the exact locations of over 100 of the most commonly used acupoints in the body and how to apply the appropriate techniques learned in the previous section to each of the points.
Section five focuses on assessing and treating common musculoskeletal disorders such as shoulder pain, neck pain, low back pain, and headaches using a variety of techniques and acupoints.
In section six, the focus moves to homecare. Homecare is an essential part of any form of massage therapy. In this section, students will learn simple stretch exercises, basic strengthening exercises and postural correction exercises.

In this course you’ll learn how to effectively communicate with your patients about pain, whether it’s acute or chronic. You’ll understand how to implement movements strategies to not only promote confidence and resilience in your patients, but also to help them gain confidence to move through and improve their ADLs. You’ll gain the understanding to do therapeutic exercise and movements right in your treatment room, without having to use a gym, and also without having to refer out to another professional for exercise. This in turn will increase your patients' confidence in you, and will also put more money in your pocket because you won’t have to refer them to someone else once you have the understanding of how to do therapeutic exercise in your treatment room.

INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE is a 4000-year-old therapy that treats the person on 3 levels; the physical, mental, and subtle. The modality is a combination of the traditional Indian head massage moves originating from India along with non-traditional moves given to the face, neck, upper arms, and shoulders. An Ayurvedic element of the work is done on the three higher Chakras (Visuddha, Ajna, and Sahasrara), which can help to assist the body's energies to rebalance. The delivery of a hair and scalp conditioning oil at the end of the treatment is completely optional.
This unique and ancient massage is done while a client sits fully clothed in a comfortable low back chair. It is the most versatile of all massages out there. Simply said, this massage can be done anywhere you can set up a chair for your client to sit on and receive this treatment.
In the three-day intensive course, Lee-ann Harder, (tutor of this therapy for 12 years) will provide a comprehensive grounding in the theoretical basis and practical application of Indian Head Massage. Students will be able to use the technique as a principal or complementary part of their professional practice.
