Reiki is a thousand-year-old healing form with roots in Japan and Tibet. I'm trained in Usui Shiki Ryoho – the Usui System of Natural Healing – founded by Japanese Reiki practitioner Mikao Usui in the 1920s.
Reiki is a form of energy healing known to reduce stress and anxiety, and promote relaxation. During a "hands on" session, ki (life energy), is channelled by me and transmitted through a gentle touch. Placing hands on the body enables it to release oxytocin, the "feel-good hormone", and activates the parasympathetic nervous system (the rest and digest response). This evokes a state of deep rest, inner harmony, and groundedness from where you can heal, recharge, and reconnect with your Self.
When working on a distance, the energy is slightly different but equally powerful. It's even said that it intensifies when crossing time and space. I find it to be a very profound and effective healing method.
The experience of Reiki healing is very individual, and people respond differently when the body relaxes. Trust that whatever you experience is exactly what you need in that moment.
Hands on healing: During a same-room session with me, you'll be softly tucked in, lying fully clothed on a treatment bench under covers. You'll experience the healing and relaxing vibrations of the Tibetan singing bowl and sense the cleansing and energising scents of white sage and palo santo.
I'll start by scanning through your body and balancing you chakra system – the seven main energy centres of the body – before placing my hands onto each centre, channelling ki (life energy) into your crown-, third eye-, throat-, heart-, solar plexus-, sacral-, and root chakra, as well as the knees (which are seen as important energy portals in Reiki), and feet.
You may experience hot, cold, or tingling sensations throughout the session. This is all completely normal.
Distance healing: Find a quiet, secluded space and make it cosy with some candles and gentle music. You should be ready 10 minutes prior to the session start time. Sit or lay comfortably, close your eyes, and try to be present with the sensations in your body. It's as easy as that.
10 minutes after the session is complete I'll call you up for a brief check-in.
