Do you have a health or emotional problem you’re trying to deal with?

It could be anything from crippling anxiety and panic to coping with the next round of chemotherapy for your cancer?

Perhaps you are struggling as a carer for a sick or aging relative or you are exhausted looking after your healthy but hyperactive child.

Maybe it’s not so much a problem but doing something practical to stay healthy and happy.

Reiki healing therapy can be received for everyday life mental and physical issues and help in a wide range of situations because it doesn’t treat the symptom or condition directly but rather, Reiki therapy helps the body to restore its’ balance and support its’ internal systems so that you feel healthier. That’s why when you attend your initial session we start with

‘What has bought you here today?’

My clients typically report an improvement during their first Reiki treatment, laying the ground for even further improvement during and after follow-on sessions.

What is Reiki Healing?

Reiki is a gentle yet powerful form of energy healing which promotes an increase in your physical energy and well-being, giving a sense of calm, enhancing clarity of mind and emotional balance.

In Japanese the energy is referred to as 'Ki', in Chinese it is 'Chi' or 'Qi'. Other more wellknown therapies such as acupuncture and martial arts work with this life-force energy that is in each of us.

How does Reiki heal?

Reiki channels universal ‘energy’, through me, clearing away your stagnant energy and preventing you from living well.

Reiki tends to induce a deep sense of relaxation, helping with stress and easing anxiety.

Reiki is a very gentle yet effective complementary therapy which can be used alone or along with other complimentary or conventional therapies. It can assist to significantly improve specific mental or physical health conditions and overall wellbeing. Reiki balances the physical, emotional and spiritual self, working on your bodies energy flows.

Spiritual ... Is Reiki 'faith healing'?

You do not need to follow or believe in any particular faith or religion to receive Reiki, it is more important that you remain open minded to the benefits of Reiki.

Who is Reiki for?

As a Reiki Master Practitioner I can deliver this powerful form of healing therapy to adults, children, babies or animals.

Is Reiki safe?

Reiki Healing is seen as a complimentary therapy and can be received by anyone including those going through mainstream medical care such as receiving treatment for cancer, compromised immune system therapy e.g. HIV treatment, or any form of emotional therapy such as psychotherapy or counselling.

What happens in a Reiki Healing session?

When you arrive for your first session we will have a talk about why you have come for a therapy session. This is important to help me to know how to structure the Reiki healing session. Different 'Chakras' have control over different physical and emotional areas of the body. We can also discuss what you feel comfortable with.

I will then ask you to sit in a comfortable chair or lie on my therapy table, fully clothed. If you prefer I will also place a light blanket over you.

If you are happy for me to do so I play soothing music in the background which can help you to relax and get more from your Reiki therapy session. I also have soothing sounds like rain falling or waves against the shore.

I will begin to place my hands lightly on or over specific areas of your head, upper body, arms and legs using different hand shapes, for between 2 and 5 minutes at a time. During this time I am working with the universal energy.

If you are tender or sore in any particular area of your body, such as a burn, then my hands will be held just above the wound. We can discuss this before your session. If at any time you encounter any discomfort you can simply ask me to stop.

While I am holding my hands on or over you, the transfer of energy takes place. During this time, you may experience a warm or tingling sensation. I hold each hand position until I sense that the energy has stopped flowing between me to you. At this point I move on.

Our session will finish with a talk on how you are feeling. Reiki healing can induce deep relaxation and even sleep and so it may be necessary for you to need a minute or two to bring your consciousness back to the present. If and when you are ready to we will talk about the session

I work from home so it is a more intimate experience and I do have a lovely cat called Sally who loves meeting new people.


Distant Reiki healing

I also offer distant Reiki healing which is the practice of ‘sending’ healing to a person (or animal) who is not able to attend an appointment. Distant healing is known by other names such as absent healing, Reiki distance healing, remote Reiki healing and many more.

Why consider distant Reiki Healing?

There are many benefits in choosing distant Reiki healing

  • Receive Reiki in the comfort and familiarity of your own surroundings
  • No need for the inconvenience and cost of travelling
  • Continue to receive Reiki if you are away from Hastings or even out of the country
  • Offer Reiki as a gift for someone else
  • Allows you to give Reiki to anxious or stressed animals that dislike strangers near them
  • Allows Reiki to be given to larger animals such as horses and ponies

How is distant Reiki healing given?

So that I can give distant Reiki healing I need the name of the person (or animal) and, if possible, a photograph of them. I find that it helps me to have something physical to hold to represent the person I am giving Reiki healing to and so I use a large teddy bear when sending distant healing which helps me to visualise the recipient.

During the distant Reiki healing session I ‘tune’ into the recipient, making the energetic connection and sending the energy to the that specific location.
