What is reiki ?
A healing technique originated in Japan, developed in 1800s by Dr Mikao Usui. The practitioner channels universal life force energy into the patient, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
What is involved in a Reiki session ?
A treatment is always done fully clothed, lying down. The practitioner gently places hands in various positions on and off the body, acting as a conduit to this universal life force energy. Because healing is very personal, it's important to note that what may be experienced, is different for everyone. Some people feel different sensations such as heat, tingly movements, waves, heaviness or lightness. Some people see colours & pictures or even have a thought from a long time ago. It might feel like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you.
Some people feel really relaxed and calm or fall asleep during Reiki. During the session (as an extra modality) I may connect with and receive messages from benevolent, well meaning ancestors and spiritual guides, only of course with permission from the Client. It is recommended to wear loose fitting comfortable clothing and that you keep well hydrated before and after sessions
What are the benefits of reiki ?
Some come to Reiki to help with their energy levels, managing the stress of daily life or when transitions are happening in their lives. Others will come to develop themselves spiritually and experience a greater sense of meaning in life. Many of my clients are well and want to stay that way so reiki helps them to maintain that level of optimal health. Many who come for Reiki treatments realise that balancing their systems can help them to cope better with a wide range of health conditions, including stress, anxiety, depression, chronic pain and infertility to mention a few. Some people find that it helps relieve pain and supports the physical body healing, as reiki can assist the body in cleansing itself from toxins and supports the immune system. Reiki also treats and works to dissolve energy blocks, and restore the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit back into a balanced, harmonious state. Reiki can create many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Some people note that it can aid better sleep. Reiki creates an avenue for healing primary cause of illness as well as it's physical manifestations. Complimentary to medical treatment & other therapies. Many have reported miraculous results.
How many sessions do I need ?
It would be wonderful to receive Reiki on a daily basis, however, unless you are trained in Reiki that isn’t realistic. Like most practices that encourage better health (i.e. exercise, diet, meditation) it is best to incorporate Reiki as a part of your overall health routine. After an initial visit, I will discuss with you how often would be best to receive Reiki based on what I felt, your experience and your goals. I have found that people who receive Reiki 2-4 times a month have reported the most healing benefits. Where possible it is encouraged to receive 4 sessions one week apart at first, to open up and begin balancing your energy system, then discussing if you’d like them more spread out. It really depends on you, as you ultimately decide what is best for you!. There really isn't a magic number for this.
How is Reiki a holistic approach to my well-being ?Reiki is a wonderful compliment what you are already working with your Physician. Reiki does not interfere with medication. Reiki should in no way take the place of licensed medical care. Reiki works in concert, with many complimentary treatments such as chiropractic, acupuncture, counselling and physical therapy.
Is Reiki a religion or any other belief system ?No, Reiki is not connected with any religious organisation. Since energy & love are universal so is Reiki. People from all religious backgrounds practice, receive and use Reiki. Dr. Usui told his students: "If you live your life according to these five principles, you will lead a fulfilled life." The five principles of Reiki are ; Just for today, I will not worry. ...Just for today, I will not be angry. ...Just for today, I will be grateful. ...Just for today, I will do my work honestly. ...Just for today, I will be kind to every living thing.
What is a crystal healing treatment ?
The client lies on a treatment table always fully clothed and is then covered with a light blanket as the body temperature can drop during a healing session. Soft relaxing background music is played throughout the session which helps the client relax. Each Crystal Healing is unique, varies from person to person and can also vary from treatment to treatment. I will select crystals best for the desired result as per initial consultation with the client. There are 7 Chakras (energy centres) in our body in which energy flows through. These energy centres can become overworked or heavy from various blockages resulting in all sorts of energetic build up and emotional unease in the body and daily experience. Crystals are then placed on these energy centres. As the crystalline energies flow through and surround them, clients may feel heat, coolness or tingling and most go into a very deep relaxed state to bring balance and realignment to all chakras. I will use a Crystal Pendulum to gently bring each chakra into balance, while the crystals honour and heal the mind body and spirit.

While some practitioners may chose to combine Reiki with massage, it is important to note that Reiki is not massage. The sessions I provide are not combined with massage. Reiki is a form of energy work administered with very light or no touching of the body.
