Columbus has an abundance of Reiki practitioners. Dave Scarbrough, also known as “Reiki Dave,” is a Reiki Master who practices Reiki healing, as well as provides individuals with the opportunity to learn all levels of Reiki. Reiki has three levels of training.The Master Level qualifies the practitioner to teach others this healing system.

According to the International Center for Reiki Training, Reiki is  a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing,based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is the basis of life. If a person's "life force energy" is low, there is an increased likelihood of illness.

The language of Reiki flows from Mikao Usui, who is credited with "rediscovering" this ancient healing method in Japan in the early 20th century. Today, many modern practitioners may discuss this energy in terms of accessing the Zero Point Field, the energy of the ground state, a concept  first proposed by  Albert Einstein and Otto Stern in 1913. The basics of Reiki are easily learned, making this energy healing method accessible for personal use for self and family, although the art and skill may take a lifetime to master.

Scarbrough practices at the holistic center Mystic Nirvana in northwest Columbus. In addition to Reiki, Scarbrough has also studied hypnotherapy, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), tarot, crystals, and sound therapy. He has worked at the Serendipity Center in Columbus (affiliate of Serendipity Stables), taught classes at the Center for Wholeness and A Greater Love, and has delivered workshops at Journeys of Wisdom and Ki Empowerment.

In addition, Scarbrough creates inspirational videos on YouTube and other websites. He also provides instruction for practitioners on how to create their own online classes and videos, and how they can use them to promote their holistic business.
