What is reiki?




Happy New Year!

I hope that this finds you well and rested after the holiday season. It can be fabulous to spend time with those you love and especially if no one has to get up too early in the morning!

I thought that this year I would start by explaining a bit more about all of the therapies that I currently offer.

First up is the the therapy I am asked about more than all others - reiki.

Reiki is a Japanese form of healing, a practitioner is taught to allow universal healing to flow through them to where it is needed. It is very gentle, can be done with or without touch and also over a distance. When you are sending the energy your hands are guided to where they are needed and you feel different things depending on what’s happening with the person and their life. Heat, cold or vibrations can all indicate an issue that needs clearing. A practitioner cannot diagnose problems, they just channel the energy. Clients having this treatment are usually amazed by how relaxed they feel during and afterwards. It's not unusual for someone to fall asleep on the couch... The gentle breathing lets me know that I'm doing a good job!

I first came across reiki about 15 years ago when I was pregnant with my second child. I felt really poorly and had aches and pains in my hips. When my friend offered, I said yes because I thought anything was worth a shot at that time! I felt so much better afterwards and to this day I am grateful to her. Later she went on to attune me for my first level.

Reiki is shared from master to student on an individual basis or in very small groups and these all lead back to Usui who first taught it. This gentleness is central to the therapy - nothing is forced, it allows time and the universe to do their thing.

To be honest, I really do not know how it works, but I have been amazed by what I have seen it do.

If you’re interested,  please contact me, I’m always happy to answer any questions you may have.

Brightest blessings,
