This style of Reiki was created by Martyn Pentecost, based on Usui Reiki techniques. The Karmic Reiki treatment follows just the same methods as an Usui Reiki treatment, but the focus is on dealing with the various issues that arise from negative karmic events in your life. It is primarily an “auric” form of Reiki and employs incredibly powerful frequencies of energy to release current and past karmic issues and connect with your guides for complete karmic healing. Many consider this a form of regression therapy. I was attuned to Karmic Reiki in February 2014 by Cheryl Valdebenito and I use Karmic Reiki for self-healing work.
