Find out more about Reiki healing before booking your appointment


Reiki means "universal life-force energy".

Reiki was developed by a Japanese man Mikao Usui, in the early twentieth century and is used for self healing, healing of others and distant healing.

Training is provided by a Reiki Master who provides attunements for the individual. The attunements help to increase the flow of Ki or universal energy within an individual who is going to give Reiki treatment to themselves or others.

Reiki I training provides attunements which are used to heal the self. These attunements allow for the individual to give themselves treatment, or to use Reiki in their life by directing the energy to situations or events to help remove blocks to progress.

In Reiki II attunement helps to amplify the amount of healing energy, and once attuned, the individual is in a position to become a practitioner, to give hands on, or hands off, healing to others. Distance healing may also be given.


How is Reiki treatment given?

Prior to treatment I will take notes on your general health and well-being. After this you lie flat on a couch or sit in a reclining chair, whichever is more comfortable. You remain fully clothed. As a practitioner I will treat the whole body, or, for a shorter treatment particular parts of the body where we agree you would like to receive treatment. Hands are placed over or on areas of the body whilst energy is flowing. Usually I work over the front of the body starting at the head, down to the feet. Then a client will turn over and I work head to feet on the back on their body.

One treatment can have very positive results but as with any complementary therapy treatment more can often help support clients with on-going issues.

How will I feel during treatment?

Whilst receiving treatment clients report feeling relaxed and sometimes will experience areas of heat or cold in different parts of their body. This is quite normal. At the end of the treatment clients can report feeling tired and sleepy or sometimes feeling more energised.

Sometimes there is a release of emotion during or after treatment and again this is quite normal. As a Reiki practitioner I can explore these reactions with you to help you understand where they may originate.

Do I have to lie down for treatment?

Usually a client will lie down on a massage couch, covered with a blanket and supported by pillows (some adjustments are made at present due to Covid-19 regulations). Usually treatment begins with hands off treatment working down the front of the body and then the client turns over and a mixture of hands on and hands off can be used to give the remaining treatment. Sometimes, if a client finds it more comfortable, Reiki can be given in a seated position.

I usually provide half hour or one hour Reiki healing sessions. This includes some relaxation time at the end of the session. Consultation and feedback time before and after the treatment will be added on to this at no extra charge. It is good to allow time for yourself to relax and not have to rush about after your appointment.
