What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese energy healing technique. The system of reiki that I practice is Usui Reiki which was created by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 20th century. Reiki is a complementary health practice that assists in bringing about wellbeing. Reiki does not cure diseases or illnesses, it’s used as a way to manage symptoms and improve general well-being and allow the body to tap into its own healing process to bring about health and healing.
During a reiki session, the practitioner places their hands either directly on you or just above you to bring about healing. The belief is that the practitioner is able to stimulate your body’s natural healing abilities.

What to expect
At your first appointment we will chat about the process and your expectations or intentions. Let me know about any symptoms you want addressed or if there are places in the body on which you’d like to focus or if you have any injuries or places that are very sensitive to touch.
A Reiki session is generally carried out on a massage table, however the session can be done in a comfortable chair if you prefer. During the session there will not be any talking, I will spend time moving my hands around your body or energy field and may lightly touch or hold my hands just above the body to direct the healing energy. I may place crystals on or around your body and generally towards the end of the session use sound or essences to cleanse and ground your energy.
You may experience sensations in the body such as heat or tingling. Some people report seeing visualisations such as colours or pictures, or having memories appear. Try to allow whatever arises to pass without attaching too much meaning to it. Your experiences may become deeper the more you continue with Reiki.
Wear clean, loose-fitting, comfortable clothing. You may wish to wear natural fabrics such as cotton, linen, or silk. Remove your shoes, jewellery, and glasses before your session, and keep your phone switched off or leave it behind!
