Reiki is an energy healing technique, which can be carried out either hands-on or with the practitioner touching the client), hands-off (the practitioner holds their hands over the client) or it can be sent remotely via distant healing.
Reiki is a way of harnessing and using natural healing energy, that is present in all living things, including the planet that we live on. This natural energy is channelled through the practitioner into the client to help treat specific conditions, renew energy and bring about a state of relaxation and well-being. When you are feeling low or need to relax, having a Reiki treatment is a bit like plugging into a battery re-charger, working to to top up your batteries and re-charge every cell in your body with positive life-force energy, also called Chi, Qi or Prana, depending on where you live in the world! One way to think about it is that whilst you relax, your practitioner becomes an extension cord, plugging one hand into the 'cosmic grid' and the other they will lay on you (or hold above or send remotely) to bring about a blissfully relaxed state!
After receiving Reiki many people report better sleep, feeling calmer or more energised, as well as a generalised feeling of overall well-being. As Reiki is a holistic therapy, working on the whole body, it also works well independently or in-conjunction with Integrated Therapy. Reiki is also widely carried out all over the world as a means of relaxation and well-being, as well as areas such as sports (to bring relief from injury) and hospices (in pallative and end of life care).
Due to Covid-19 I am currently carrying out all Reiki treatments remotely via distant healing. Distant healing is taught as part of the Reiki syllabus at Level II (Practitioner) level and is enjoyed when it is not possible for the giver (me) and receiver (you) to be in the same room. The only difference in the experience is that you are able to lie on your own bed or sit in your own armchair, rather than travelling to my treatment room. Other than that there is very little difference to the benefits that you will receive or the relaxation that you will enjoy!
How Distant Healing Works:
When you first contact me we will have a chat about what you need, your expectations and desired outcomes and how I can help you...this initial telephone conversation is completely FREE and no-obligation. If you would like to go ahead, we will arrange a date and time for your Reiki session and I will ask you a few questions about where you would like to relax (armchair, bed, etc, this will help me to visualise on the day), how you relax (in case you would like me to help you by doing a guided relaxation before your treatment on the day) and what you might feel during the session. You will also be able to ask any questions you would like to at this time. I also ask for payment, usually by bank transfer at time of booking.
I will then send you a consultation form, a Terms & Conditions form and a leaflet about your Reiki session....I will ask you to save the first two forms to your computer, electronically sign them and email them back to me (this can be done by post if you prefer). The leaflet about your Reiki session will suggest things that you can do at home to prepare for your treatment, such as playing music, lighting a candle and a deep breathing exercise to help you relax.
When the day of your appointment arrives, I will give you a call about ten minutes before your treatment....unless we are doing a guided meditation, in which case I will call you about twenty minutes before. This is to make sure that you are comfortable and to double check what you would like me to work on, i.e. are you feeling stressed, have a headache, etc. After hanging up the telephone the treatment will begin.
During the treatment I will light candles, play mantras music and be sitting at my treatment couch, in exactly the same way as if you were laying in front of me. I will begin by scanning your aura for imbalances, then clean and balance your energy centers (chakras), lay out crystals along your chakra line, meditate and visualise you in front of me. The treatment is carried out in exactly the same way as if you are in the room, with me beaming energy to every cell in your body, in order for you to truly relax and let go of any negative tension.
Your relaxing Reiki session is an hour long session and to be honest, most people fall asleep. So rather than wake you up afterwards, if you would like to discuss the treatment we can arrange for me to give you a telephone call the next day...this is all included in your treatment.
