What is Reiki? (pronounced Ray-Kee) Reiki is a gentle, natural, safe and non-intrusive holistic therapy which promotes balance. The translation of Reiki (which is a Japanese word) is “Universal Life Force” and this therapy is all about energy and vibration.
Everything in this world/universe is energy and when having a Reiki treatment, your auric field and your physical body are subject to the gentle flow of Reiki which is intended to restore balance, induce relaxation and keep stress at bay. It’s a non-intrusive therapy which is done over clothes, there is no massage or manipulation involved but the effects can be quite astounding. Everyone’s response to Reiki is different but even the most scientific of people can appreciate the therapy, as energy is at the heart of it and energy is what we all are, oscillating between the highest of vibrations (our aura) to the densest (our physical bodies). When having a Reiki treatment, different people feel different things and no two treatments are the same. The most common reports from clients are they feel heat from the Practitioner’s hands, tingling sensations, feel coolness or see colours. This is not an exhaustive list as every response is as unique as the client having the treatment.
It’s a wonderfully relaxing therapy and is safe to use on anyone. It is not a Religion and has no Religious connotations. Reiki is a wonderful tool for self-treatments, self-development and as a tool to manage stress levels. It is also a therapy used by Holistic Therapists (who have gone through to Reiki II) as a stand-alone treatment or is used in conjunction with another therapy (I love to combine Reflexology with Reiki). If you decide you would like to go through the Reiki levels with me, there are 3 levels, plus teacher level. I will explain in more detail what each level comprises.
I run courses of very small groups from Reiki First Degree (level I) to Reiki Master/Teacher (level III). These are face to face courses as the UK Reiki Federation require the attunements to be carried out in person. If you are interested in starting your Reiki journey with me, then please get in touch. Of course, even if you have done your Reiki I with another Master, I welcome you to do Reiki II and Master with me. It doesn’t matter how many attunements you have, or how many Masters you see. We are all constantly learning. I did my Reiki Master twice and have had two Reiki Masters. I see that as a positive as you can gain a lot from different teachers. Whatever your drive to start your own Reiki journey, you won’t regret it ~ Reiki is only ever given/received for the greatest and highest good of the recipient. It is, quite simply, wonderful!
I am a Holistic Therapist that practices Reiki, Reflexology, Indian Head Massage, Reflexology Lymph Drainage. I am a Member of the UK Reiki Federation, as well as the Association of Reflexologists. I have also completed the L3 in Education & Training Award. I completed my Reiki Master/Teacher level in 2018 and I am also fully insured (incorporating Teaching). I should also mention, I absolutely LOVE what I do whether it is treating regular clients, learning new therapies or, like now, taking people through their Reiki levels.
Please get in touch with me if you would like to start (or continue) your Reiki journey, we can have an informal chat and take things from there :-)
