Our Story

about the reiki store


It all started with a little purple Reiki book and a mission to share Reiki with the world…

As one of the very first online Reiki schools, The Reiki Store, has remained a leading voice in holistic health community for over two decades. In fact, a lot of the content out there online today can be traced back to the original Reiki Training created by our Founders Garry and Adele Malone. As with most people who find their way to Reiki, Garry and Adele Malone were drawn to this healing modality on a search for more natural complementary therapies to help a very sick family member, after exhausting all other medical options. At the time, there were a lot of barriers to accessing quality Reiki training – you had to complete training in person, attending pricey workshops that were only run in a limited number of locations over several sessions.

Not very helpful when you are looking for natural healing tools to help someone who really needs support straight away. After Garry and Adele went through their training, they were completely blown away by the power of Reiki and started training their friends and family and running workshops in London and Hertfordshire. Soon friends and students from over the world where getting in touch wanting to find out more about Reiki.

After publishing several books on the subject of Reiki to help more people experience Reiki for themselves, they wanted to do more. That’s when they knew it was time to take this training online, setting up quality distant learning courses and resources for their growing number of Reiki students across the globe. Busy people with busy lives who wanted to find simple and natural energy tools to ease pain, anxiety and stress and learn in a way that they could fit their training around their life. With the mission to make Reiki training more accessible, Garry & Adele created The Reiki Store to provide everything their students needed to learn, practice and teach Reiki professionally – all in one place.

Since 1997,  this family-run training school has expanded to help over 100,000 students on their path to Reiki Mastery, empowering Holistic Practitioners across the globe to reconnect with themselves and open their minds up to a more natural and holistic way of living.


We believe that Reiki has the power to make the world a better place and that everyone can benefit from practicing Reiki and living by its five core principles.

We strive to be a positive force for good in the world by creating a safe and inspiring space for personal, spiritual, and professional development, through our accredited Reiki training, books, toolkits and mentorship programmes.

We know that each student that we have the privilege of introducing to Reiki has the potential to go on to train and teach their own students and help their own friends, family, and clients with Reiki, creating a powerful chain of healing and positive energy. Reiki is a wonderful gift and an incredibly powerful tool for self-care, self-love and self-healing, which everyone should have access to, which is why we continually strive each day to spread Reiki to every corner of the planet.

Meet Our Founders

Many people believe when you are ready to embrace the principles of Reiki you will be guided to a teacher. I personally believe that Reiki, with its infinite wisdom and unconditional love, seeks out the person when they need it most. This is true of my own experience and introduction to Reiki.

Like many people in the healing profession, I was inspired to help others through personal tragedy. My sister Kim died of cancer at the young age of thirty-three, leaving behind a devastated husband, four young children and a large family. During her brief attempt to beat cancer she asked me to help her fight against this horrible disease. With no real knowledge of medicine or complementary therapies I searched for hope. Doctors and nurses were unable and unwilling to offer any encouragement, refusing to step outside the realms of modern medicine. We were told to just accept that she was going to die. Modern medicine gave up exposing its limitations. Angry and frustrated at the hospitals’ cold, blunt diagnosis, I began to search bookshops for inspiration.

Love, Medicine and Miracles a wonderful book by Dr Bernie Siegel jumped out at me. It told of a more compassionate and holistic approach to diseases such as cancer and aids. There were stories of people who survived even after being told there was no hope. It explained how, by taking responsibility for your own health and future, you could fight back if you wished.

This book and Dr Siegel’s work inspired me to change my life. My new path began with the study of the mind through Hypnosis and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming). Fortunately for me, while I was training in Hypnotherapy and NLP, I met a lady called Tricia Courtney-Dickens who introduced me to Reiki. Her enthusiasm for this ancient art of healing was infectious. I decided to enroll in her next Reiki course to study the first degree. That weekend workshop changed my perceptions of holistic healing forever. Reiki put me in touch with my natural abilities to heal myself and others; I was truly amazed by Reiki’s subtle yet profound power. I felt more in control of my health and more in tune with my body and needs. I couldn’t believe how simple these techniques were to bring into my daily life. It was like I’d had my own energy MOT and I wanted to tell everyone about what I had discovered.

In 1997 we set up the Reiki Store, and since then we have had the privilege of training over 100,000 reiki students worldwide. It seems so normal now to talk about training online but let me tell you – back then no one was teaching Reiki on the World Wide Web! My wife and I received a lot of negativity at the time from people saying that Reiki couldn’t be taught over a distance (even though one of the core beliefs of Reiki Level 2 is that Reiki can be sent across time and space). Despite the early pessimism from others, we preserved with our mission to make Reiki training more accessible to everyone. And the feedback we got from our amazing students inspired us to keep building and growing.

But there were more barriers to come. Many Reiki Associations at the time, excluded those who had studied distantly. This again felt wrong to us – Reiki is all about the right intention and working to the same guiding principles and values, it’s about helping improve lives and making the world a better place – this is what matters, not where you trained. So, we founded an inclusive International Association of our own – The Reiki Healing Association (RHA), which is now the fastest growing community of Reiki and Wellness Professionals, all changing the world one Reiki session at a time.

Nowadays online Reiki training is commonplace (especially since the Covid Pandemic forced everyone online!) And over 25 years later we are still inspired by the same mission that drove us decades before: to help educate, promote and spread Reiki healing and teaching to every corner of our planet so we can spread the power of Reiki across the globe. As well as the extraordinary group of RHA members who are working with us to spread this mission, now my two daughters have joined the team to continue to promote the benefits of natural holistic health and wellness.
