"I want to share how powerful and wonderful my Reiki class was. I had not been that relaxed in a long time. I enjoyed the pace of the class and of course the day flew by. As I went through my workweek, I notice a difference in my energy level and this energy increase was more pronounced into the second week following Reiki. I questioned why I had so much more energy and by the 3rd week, I ruled out that it was Reiki accounting for this experience. My teaching profession is sometimes demanding. Every day my job is inspiring others using motivational techniques with students in hopes to better their lives. That's why I am delighted that I have discovered Reiki. Thank you! " P . T. County Social Worker
"Thank you for a most educational & enlightening day. I loved it! What a great group of people. To an amazing, talented, witty, compassionate, generous, man!! “I’m so honored that you are in my life. I hope we share many more growth opportunities, laughs, hugs and life experiences together. Blessings", K.B. Massage Practitioner
"I recently experienced Reiki I class facilitated by John Salat. I found his casual and down to earth style of facilitating to be very appealing. He has an intuitive sense about him which seems to know just when to distribute important information and when to allow the actual experiencing to occur. I admire his ability to balance the two together so well. I now live in Hawaii but if I were to continue living in California I would most definitely continue on with John as my Reiki facilitator. His class was truly a joy to experience." Lisa.S. Massage Therapist
"John, its been an amazing the few days: The "ups" have a new, quiet, clear Quality to them. "Downs" have an element of hope and patience with which I'm not yet familiar. Thank you for the fine set of tools you've shared with me. And the marvelous energy. Practicing trust in the wisdom of the energy. Sometimes I see myself as a tiny paper boat in the middle of a vast ocean. I don't know much, but real wisdom is everywhere. Feel that I just need to let it work. That's an excellent lesson, if I can learn to accept it. So it goes. Thanks again". Peace, love, and the magic of being, R.P."John, first let me thank you again for a wonderful Reiki class yesterday…I now feel as though I have ‘completed’ my introduction to this powerful work. Your gentle manner of teaching, the years of experience you bring to it along with your generous way of sharing to stay connected to this work is deeply appreciated. Know you are touching countless lives directly and indirectly on multiple levels through your committed efforts. Bless you. I wish to thank you, each one, for your part in our journey. We so enjoyed being with you all day (twice times! J) and loved getting to know you better through your sharing both in class and at lunch. Each of you have special gifts, delightful energy…and a unique story. We enjoyed all that you shared. We look forward to our paths crossing again. It was a wonderful experience. Thank you for a wonderful Reiki experience yesterday". Blessings, love, and healing, E.H.
"I really enjoyed and was edified by all those in today’s class and plan on attending regularly.!!! I felt as though we were destined for all time to be there at that place and time to be attuned for the work that is to come! WOW!!! It was very good!!! What you are doing is a very significant thing. The energy is great!" Thanks so much for your generosity. Eric. R.
"Dear Mr. Salat, Thank you for the great class and the Reiki folder with easy to follow instructions. It was a pleasure meeting you and the other classmates. You were all full of amazing facts which made the class a lot of fun for me. Please put my name down for Reiki 2 class". Thanks again, A.S.
"Have been practicing the Rieki and methods and find the results amazing. Thank you for sharing Reiki with me as your knowledge and passion made the class so interesting and enjoyable. I am still in awe on how the Reiki healing power interlocks with so many other concepts that I am currently exploring. There is so much to learn and so little time. N.H.Financial adviser
"I recommend that anyone who has enjoyed the experience of receiving Reiki attunements to participate as an assistant with John. As an assistant, I experienced a heightened appreciation for the energy that is shared by everyone in the room. I experienced Reiki from a new prospective and I look forward to assisting John in the future". Misti FA; Medical Market
"I just want to let you know again how much I enjoyed Reiki 1. I am so thrilled to be learning this healing art that I feel so passionate about. I am really enjoying the path of healing, and feel blessed that you are my Reiki Master. I am looking forward to Reiki 2. Again, thank you for your graciousness". Talk to you soon! J. U.
"Going through Reiki 2 was the place for me for that moment in time. I really enjoyed the teachings and your presentation, Master. My life has been so enhanced through this experience and I feel better prepared to use what I have learned. The connection between people whose lives cross is interesting". Thank you so very much. J.G.
"I received the Reiki Master attunements from John Salat. Shortly thereafter, I participated in a mini-workshop he did on Augmenting Chi. What I learned in Augmenting Chi was the "missing link" in my ability to heal myself at the capacity I had been striving for. I incorporate the techniques he taught me into my daily life and feel more peace, serenity, and in touch with the healing energies of the Universe. Blessings of love, light, & miracles" Renada .T; Reiki Master and Published Inspirational Book Writer
"John, I just wanted to let you know that the Reiki Level I was a fabulous experience. Both My wife and I can feel the Ki working its magic in and through us. We are practicing the hand positions on ourselves and each other. It is very exciting to be cultivating our hands to be healing instruments". We are looking forward to Level II, Lloyd S.
"Thank you for the attunements yesterday, I will put them to good use. I continue to practice my Reiki, and everyone seems very pleased with the feelings/results! John, all of your accomplishment a truly tremendous, but above all, you are a great human being and it’s my pleasure to know you!" Regards, J.H.
"Hi John! First of all, thank you for the attunements! I've been practicing on family and friends, and they are quite impressed! My girlfriend is used to getting regular massages from me and knows my touch...when I did the Reiki on her (with my hands positioned about 4-6 inches above her) she exclaimed, "Are you using a heat lamp?" She said she could really feel the warm energy almost pulsating...she said she also felt a "pull"...like magnets. I gave her a Reiki treatment and she fell into a deep sleep, waking and feeling very relaxed. as over last night, and I gave her a Reiki treatment while she relaxed in a chair with their eyes closed. I then held my hands over the crown of her head, about 6 inches away...she said she could feel a definite warmth radiating her head. I would periodically move my hands, and she would immediately exclaim that she felt as though there were opposing magnets and she could feel it "shift" even when I made very subtle movements" J. H. Student
"John, Thank you again for facilitating Reiki 2 and literally changing my life for the better by sharing the magic. Thank you so much for sharing the love and light! You are an amazing force of good in the world - I hope you know that...I so appreciate you". D.C. Student
"John...the day of the Reiki training my mind was almost all with Reiki and so, I do not think I thanked you!!! And I feel like I would have liked to have said thank you....so "thank you". Namaste. I have every intention of taking the level 2 training and I am looking forward to that. I just wanted to send this message out to you and say thank you for sharing your heart and soul with us. It was a true gift!" Have a lovely evening!!! C.C., Student
"Hi John: I am so pleased to have received Reiki II instruction from you. It was a wonderful day. Thank you again for the opportunity for myself to be a part of the healing community". Blessings, P.R. Physiotherapist
"Dear John: Reiki 1 has already changed my life. Thanks for the great learning experience! It was wonderful to explore this amazing energy and meeting such creative people. Opportunities for Reiki are happening every day. So far, my husband and a few friends have been welcome recipients- I had good results and am looking forward to the Reiki 2 session". What an honor.
"Reiki has changed my life irrevocably with a power that is beyond my comprehension. It is unconditional love that teaches me how to give love/healing to others and to move with the natural flow of life." "Reiki has taught me how to have Faith, and the Patience to wait without exerting control." "Reiki lets those who need help come to me without judgment; it is Joy from giving a most precious gift imaginable - relief from physical or emotional pain and protection from negative forces." Thanks John. All the best, C.S.
"Hi John, I wanted to thank you for a great class. I was, and have been, having a lot of issues with my sister. I realized today that I am no longer afraid of her. I think the level one class had a great deal to do with that, so thank you. That was a very freeing feeling for me". Thank You again, C.H.
"Hi John, First of all I want to tell you what a blessing the class was on Sunday. What a wonderful mix of people in this group. I am looking forward to coming out of my shell and getting to know everyone better. I have been practicing learning my symbols and am progressing quite well if I do say so myself. Again thank you for everything and I look forward to the next encounter on this path I am taking". F.S., Student
"John, I think it's great, and want to work it in with my practice in the future. I was able to get to a state of deeper release and healing than I have in the past. This is still with me tonight--that healing feeling that's in the heart chakra area. I believe this has something to do with Reiki. I could learn the self-healing Reiki positions. When I tried them it was like I didn't even have to try or think about directing the energy--it just happened. I was quite amazed at this as I have always had to focus on it in the past. I could feel the energy in my body even when I was only "drilling" myself on the positions (and not dwelling on any for any length of time).So, there you go . . ."Warm Regards, B. S.
"HI John, Thank you so much for the wonderful class today. You created such a wonderful space and energy in which the class was held. It was an enriching and enlightening experience and I look forward to continuing my experience of Reiki. It was an incredible experience meeting you and experiencing a Reiki treatment. I have been so much more in tune with my chakras and the subtle energy shifts in my body". Thank you so much, Anita"Thanks so much for the Reiki class. I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to next level of Reiki". YF; Counselor
After our Reiki class I felt great for so many weeks, like riding a cloud. I also tried it on my boys and I think that probably prompt them to sleep through the night finally. I also try to use Reiki a lot on myself in stressful times especially or if I am in pain. Btw; that shoulder pain came back once again and I did the same as you taugh us and it went away again. So, I can't tell you how grateful I am for all this knowledge you shared with us" MV, Marketing Consultant
I felt absolutely wonderful after Reiki the day I came in. I felt it to be a very positive experience for my mind. I am always under some type of stress and pressure therefore, always just worried. But for the first time in a very long time I felt free. Thank you so much for that. GK, Loan Officer
"I am just grateful that I get the opportunity to learn my reiki level 3 from you and I must say you are a wonderful teacher". NG from Shanghai
My knee is getting stronger and stronger every day. The energy no longer feels blocked, so our combination of east meets west in tackling this knee seems to be working and I am so grateful to you for the treatment you gave me and the progress I have made so quickly in the strength department. Thank you. KG; School Teacher

Thank you for today. You were so wonderful... so much to share and such amazing positive energy. I am grateful to know you. From LS; Galleries Director/Founder
All I can say is that the following days have been the most energetic, enlightening, and eye opening days I have had in a very long time. My communication of my feelings and thoughts flows freely without fear of rejection or scrutiny. I wake up ready to take on my days excited to see what I might take on. My back hurts a lot less and even though I still feel some tension in my shoulders it's definitely lessened.
oh and i have this undeniable urge to dance recently, with ease and fluidity.
I cannot thank you enough and I am looking forward to another appointment.
Dear John, It is my pleasure to acknowledge your work in Reiki! My experience was one in which healing on a very deep, spiritual level occurred. I experienced deep, profound peace and saw, in my mind's eye a person with whom I was having great difficulty. I no longer have any ongoing anger with this person. Thank you for your work and the gift of love and peace that you bring! " M.D. Business Motivational Trainer and Speaker
I slept like an angel and woke up feeling like a million Bucks...................thank you for the best healing I have had in a long time. Blessing and love to your day J.D. Marketing Consultant
"John, Many thanks for the great treatment you gave yesterday – my lower back pain has almost disappeared and my foot is more connected than it has been in a week. Thank you too for focusing me back into the right energy field, I feel more positive than I have in months. - the first few side effects have been hunger, really energized, very focused and also my eyes are extremely bright and the 'hand luggage' underneath them (i.e. the big black bags underneath my eyes) have gone!. Truly, H.H
"John, thank you for yesterday's session. I can tell that you are a person full of love and compassion and that also love to work with energy. And gifted too, the muscles in my face area , which are involuntarily so much constricted are more loosed , more relaxed. So you did something". Thank you! M.H. Legal Assistant.
Hi John, thank you for the treatment. I am feeling better. I have to say that that treatment was very powerful; I could actually feel stuff releasing as if it were being pulled by a cord or as if a bag were draining, changing the overall pain level and feeling. Thank you for the wonderful gift!. Aloha, E.C. Licensed Massage Practitioner
"I was feeling great yesterday and I could tell you that I am feeling even better today. I am feeling wonderful. I am so thankful that I could have experience that. I really enjoyed it. I also would like to tell you that if there is something I could do for you, or help you with, I would be happy to do that. Just please let me know. Thank you, John for your great work! I felt amazing afterwords, just what the doctor ordered!" JT; Massage Practitioner
Dear John, I would like to thank you one more time for everything. The work you did yesterday for me was awesome. You are an angel. I want to thank you for being such a wonderful part of my life. I felt so nice yesterday after the work and I still do. I move around lighter and easier. It came a lot of energy into my body through you. I was tired like an hour after you left. I took a nap and enjoyed the rest of the day.I slept for 13 hours last night. Wow! I guess I needed it. All my joints still move so easy. I walk smoother. I like it

"Hi John, I am feeling great this week. A lot of my worries have magically disappeared! My attitude and outlook are much improved. I'm glad I attended your workshop and volunteered. I hope I will always remember that folding energy I saw. Maybe down the road it will have even more meaning for me as peace and fun - and I can make those happen for myself!!!". Many many thank you (I know I am just reaching the tip of the iceberg on how Reiki has/is/will help me), D.F. Student
"John, I was feeling great yesterday and I could tell you that I am feeling even better today. I am feeling wonderful. I am so thankful that I could have experience that. I really enjoyed it. I slept all night (which I am usually not) and feeling wonderful today. I still carry the feeling of complete lightness. It feels like I am walking above the ground: I walk easily and I feel nicely centered. The energy is still with me. I'm going to do the sleep intention for healing every night. It is powerful also would like to tell you that if there is something I could do for you, or help you with, I would be happy to do that. Thank you again. Thank you, thank you, thank you". Warmly, G.D.
Thank you for the treatment. There is a reason that you have a fantastic reputation in Orange County TP: Owner of Holistic Health and Beautician Center of Anaheim Hills.
"It was amazing as I had so much energy. I really did feel a lot of unusual energy the day after Reiki as unusual amount of energy in my body. I woke up in the early morning and within ½ hour, I was hiking with full energy. Came back and went swimming for an hour and took care of a lot of small projects. Usually by then I'm really tired. But I had enough energy left to catch a good movie and be able to read for an hour before I finally went to bed around 12 p.m. Thanks again John" S.A.; Accountant
"Dear John, thank you again for taking the time out of your day to give me a Reiki treatment last week. Just when I thought I had experienced all of its benefits, I broke down and started crying on Saturday night. The release was over an ex-girlfriend of mine who is on the verge of getting engaged. I was sorry that I did not try harder for her 5 years ago. It was the type of catharsis and self-forgiveness that I desperately was looking for. Thank you again". Warmest Regards, R.O.
"Dear John, just want to thank you again for your Reiki treatment last Tuesday night. You did something to me that's hard to describe, but its wonderful Thanks so much",.RV
"John, after 1-hour treatment, I felt wonderful all day and I thank you for that". T.M, Student
"Thanks again for a wonderful morning of reiki treatment as I settle in with this new experience." Warmly N.O."Thanks for the healing energies. The surgery went very well and I felt only some mild discomfort during the first day of recovery! I really feel like I could remove my splint and just walk, but am following doctors orders to stay off it for a few weeks. I appreciate the extra information you passed along. It was so nice to meet and work with you. Look forward to seeing you and working with you again!" Take care, JS
I felt absolutely wonderful after Reiki the day I came in. I felt it to be a very positive experience for my mind. I am always under some type of stress and pressure therefore, always just worried. But for the first time in a very long time I felt free. Thank you so much for that. GC; Loan officer
I slept all night (which I am usually not) and I am feeling wonderful today. I still carry the feeling of complete lightness.

Testimonials from Tai Chi, Qigong & Tao Interactive Meditation events "This is excellent! I recommend anyone interested to contact John Salat as I have benefited from the Reiki classes from him. I have been attending his Tai Chi class held on Saturday mornings in Lake Forest, CA for several months and have taken his Reiki I class. John is a very gifted teacher and a gentle soul. ". Thanks John! E.R.
"Sunset Tai Chi was magical. What a blessed day. I had more of a sense of the energy". Blessing and grace to you my masterful teacher.... J.N.
"I have had the opportunity to meet John in person and his energy is just truly amazing. Even his energy in the video has a balanced flow that speaks of compassion and a genuine willingness to teach others". Peace and prosperity. YayHeaven
"I like the variety of things you presented: Qi Gong, Tai Chi, the breath work/guided visualization. I especially liked the exercise where you let your body go wherever it wants. That was something new for me. It's always interesting to hear what you have to say and your insights. I usually come away with something that sticks with me that I can use in other areas of my life. You live what you teach. You always seem to be completely present, never distracted or in a rush. You have a very forgiving, nonjudgmental perspective. A willingness to flow instead of being rigid. Balanced. These are things that I personally get from your classes/workshops in addition to the actual subject matter." Student C.S
"Thank you for leading a wonderful meditation class. You have such an open and heart-centered way of being--it creates a totally relaxed and loving space for practicing. I loved the mix of breathing and gentle movement. What a glorious and self-nurturing way to spend an afternoon!" Deb Dominguez
"John, I want to thank you again for the wonderful experience in your Tao Motion class/gathering. I say gathering because the experience felt like my concept of focused love and light energy. I have heard a lot of discussions about chi and that we are made up of energy but for the most part it was just that, talk about someone else's experience, which I am always a little skeptical of. However, at your session I had an opportunity to really participate, exchange and feel the energy. Now I know what all the talk is about and the concept that I have carried around inside is a reality for me now. Please include me in your next session/gathering. I am looking forward to it. I hope you can share this with more people because I believe it does greatly enhance and move forward our spiritual growth. Also because of the lasting effects of the energy work there are other residual and subtle benefits at work, some of which I am continuing to feel this week. Again a sincere thanks for opening this psychic door for me". Love & Light, P.T.
"I enjoyed the movement class and I really enjoyed being with Friends. There's an unspoken/but perfectly experienced command that came with that union of awareness - STILL - I have yet to find the Friends, the like minded/ like spirited beings to do that kind of work together. I felt so at Home with that group, with you, & in the environment you created. I felt perfect balance & harmony & ease. I know it is exactly what I want & need in my life. There was no breaking free from one another, the exercise was about united & moving perfectly together as one. It was so perfect. We are perfectly still with our hands & forearms to the elbow touching, similar to the blending exercise only we are blending Reiki. Our hands & forearms create a vertical plane & our backs too are on the same plane, so that we are not seated in front of one another, but
side by side, - same plane. Completely connected & balanced. I don't even see "US" - I just know that it is us. I see Yin/Yang & recognize my own white linen. I recognize the space you created. And there is lovely light pouring in through the glass. Quite beautiful. Quite beautiful. I am so grateful for whatever you are sending me, because this has been my most challenging week at work. That sweet, quiet stillness. Your home is as saturated with love as an ashram. There is no doubt that your son's brilliance is blooming because of the great light that shines there". With love & blessings, B.J.
"John, your Tai Chi has gone a long way towards helping me recover. You know my situation and I have made a big recovery since we first met a few years ago. I will definitely be back shortly and hope to attend Reiki 2 in May. I really do appreciate everything you have done to help me recover. I will be back to Tai Chi shortly. Thanks for everything, B.F. , 3-year weekly student"This is beautiful! John performs in a fluid, graceful manner, as if he eliminates time and space. The hostess has facilitated the beauty of a soul dance. Awesome! from Email mystically
"Well done and interesting information about Tai Chi. The instructor John Salat's energy is so amazing! He is in Orange County, California - I wish I lived in the area to go to his classes. He is a Master!" From BJ
"Awesome! Authoritative, inspiring. Graceful, majestic. Wow! A nice segment of Body, Mind & Soul. It provides a brief glimpse into Tai Chi. I was interested in the instructor John Salat and went to the website and found tons more information about John as well as Reiki, Tai Chi and Chi Gong. From JG
"Thanks for making Tai Chi available. I find myself "doing life" more smoothly and serenely because of what I'm learning from you. John! I've been finding the classes very helpful and enjoyable. Tai Chi is becoming more and more a part of my everyday life. The other day I was taking a walk and integrating some Tai Chi arm movements in with the walking--it makes for a very energizing walk. It felt good"! Thanks. Sincerely, B.F.
I thoroughly enjoy attending John's Tai Chi classes because he blends the traditional moves with practices from other related modalities, keeping the class fresh and fun. He has a very positive personality and is very supportive and encouraging in his teaching style. S.B. Holistic Practitioner
John, My spinal stenosis and my shoulder's torn rotator cuff keep me in continual but different levels of pain daily. My goal of course is to continue to practice Tai Chi and Qigong. However, I need my weekly sessions to maintain some relief from pain at this time. I have been working with you for over a year and I have thoroughly enjoyed and benefited from my weekly Tai Chi classes. I always feel better after I have spent an hour in your class practicing Tai Chi and Qigong exercises. I have received benefit from some of the Reiki with you too. Thank you so much, CL; Retired Professor
We so enjoyed your Tai Chi class. Thank you for that first night of instruction! We hope to attend each week. We so enjoy the Tai Chi and to release life's burdens felt wonderful with that fluid calm motion. We love it! Take good care and many thanks again! J and B; Husband /Wife
Hi John, I just wanted to thank you again for this morning. I really enjoyed and appreciated it. I also thought I'd mention I experienced some neat things as we were going through the session and also that I believe I handled things differently throughout the day because of the session. Without going through all the details, I had a number of intense things happen today that I think would have normally reacted to differently with more stress, worry, upset, etc. Instead I handled them more quickly, effortlessly and without worry than I think I normally would have--perhaps the way you were saying Tai Chi / Chi Gong help you to accomplish more while doing (and thinking) less. Thanks again! I think it's wonderful that you provide this service. A.H. Recruiting Service
You are a wonderful instructor thank you for that. E.B.
I just want you to remember with all my heart and all my beingness. I am so grateful to have you in my life. You give me a reason to keep doing that what I do. J.D. Business Owner Traffic School
I would like to thank you again and working with me. I am so grateful for all your work and so happy to have you in my life. Your help means a lot to me. You have such a beautiful heart.
Thank you, thank you, thank you,.....
