What is Reiki?
“Reiki” (ray-key) is Japanese for ‘universal life energy’, a term used to describe a natural system to help bring about an improved sense of wellbeing and a positive feeling of spiritual renewal. This tradition was founded by Dr Mikao Usui in the early 20th century and evolved as a result of his research, experience and dedication. It is a tradition that is open to any belief system and benefits may include deep relaxation and the promotion of a calm peaceful sense of wellbeing.
The method of receiving a Reiki treatment from a practitioner is simple. The recipient remains clothed and comfortably lies on a couch or sits on a chair. The practitioner gently places their hands non-intrusively, on or near the body using their intuition and training as a guide. There is no massage or manipulation. Reiki can be used on the person as a whole, or on specific parts of the body. It is also possible to receive Reiki at a distance.
Reiki is taught by Reiki Master/Teachers, who have trained in the tradition passed on, in person, from Master to student. Students go through a process of initiation/attunement to the Reiki energy. They are then able to treat themselves and others, not only from a personal and emotional perspective, but also as an aid to individual development and spiritual growth.
What will I feel during a treatment?
You may feel hot or cold sensations, tingling, sleepiness, a sense of deep relaxation. Some people report seeing colours or memories. It is not unusual to feel nothing during your first few treatments.
What happens during a treatment?
For an in person treatment you will lie on a couch, fully clothed, usually covered with a soft blanket, the treatment can be either hands on or with the practitioner’s hands held a short distance away from the body. There is no massage or manipulation involved.
For a Distance Treatment you will be given link for a virtual meet. After a brief introduction, you will be invited to make yourself comfortable and the treatment will begin. You will feel the relaxtion and other sensations that you would feel during an in person treatment. You may switch your camera off but will need to keep your sound on so that you I can let you know when the treatment has ended. There will then be a short feedback session.
What is a Distance Treatment?
A Distance Treatment is where Reiki is sent to within out you having to be in the same location as the practitioner. Reiki transcends time and distance.
What will I feel during a Distance Treatment?
You will feel a sense of calm and relaxtion, you may feel warmth or tingling and you may see colours or visions/memories. In fact, most of my clients report the same sensations as during an in person treatment.
Why should I choose a Distance Treatment?
A Distance Treatment can be the ideal choice when you are unwell or unable to leave home. Or if you have a busy schedule a Distance Treatment will save you travel time.
How do I access a Distance Treatment?
Go to my shop and buy Distance Treatment Product, Once payment has been processed you will receive with a booking link to book your preferred time and date.
What is the advantage of booking a package?
In my experience Reiki has a cumulative effect and single treatments sporadically spaced will not produce the desired results. I want my clients to achieve the full benefits of Reiki and to do that regular evenly spaced out treatments work best. My packages are designed to help you cope with the ups and downs of life and also to be financially more cost effective than paying for single treatments over a sustained period of time. If there isn’t one to suit you do contact me and we can tailor a package to your requirements.
How do you store and use my personal data?
I only collect data from you directly, it is stored on a secure database that contains only your name and contact details. I use your contact details to confirm appointments or for follow up. I will occasionally email clients with special offers. If you do not wish to be contacted in this way do let me know. I am obliged by law to keep a client list for up to eight years, I am the only person who currently has access to this.
Do I still need to see a doctor and/or take medication?
Yes, I would never advocate stopping any prescription medications without talking to your doctor first. Reiki is not a replacement for medical treatment and if you are at all worried by any symptoms you should definitely consult a doctor. Reiki can be used alongside traditional medicine for pain relief and relaxation.
What is the advantage in buying a meditation?
The advantage in buying a meditation is that you have your own copy of it, which you can have easily accessible on your phone or computer and you are the only one who can delete or remove it. How often have you found a meditation that you love online but then it’s been withdrawn and you have to spend ages searching and listening to different ones to find something that just resonates, that seems like it was made for you? When you buy a meditation you don’t have this, you can find with a tap or click whenever you need it.
Do you teach meditation?
I don’t have a qualification to teach meditation but have been practising meditation for so many years that I’ve forgotten when I started!
But I can talk you through meditation and different ways to meditate so you find one that works for you.
Do you use scripts for your meditations?
No the meditations I have for sale, and the ones I guide clients through in workshops or when working one to one with me are all, for want of a better way of describing it, channelled. So each meditation is different, and every person will have a different experience.
How do I buy one of your meditations?
My pre-recorded meditations are available for sale on my website and once you’ve paid and your order has been processed you will receive a link to download an MP3 file.
Can I book a guided meditation with you for a specific purpose?
What are the benefits of journaling?
Journaling gives you an outlet for your emotions, used over time it can help you identify repetitive thought patterns and deep seated beliefs and help you find where those thoughts and beliefs originated and allow you to create new ones.
I’ve never journaled before, can I still work with you?
Absolutely, I can guide you through with basic prompts or prompts specific to you particular needs. No prior expereince required!
Where do you get the prompts you use?
The prompts I use for my workshops, Power Hours and the PDFs available to buy are all “channelled.”
One of my innate talents is being to ask the questions for my clients to get the answers they need.
Why do you combine meditation/Reiki with journaling?
I like to take you through a meditation or Reiki treatment before a journaling session because it relaxes you, clears and focuses your mind and allows to access your subconscious.
I describe what happens as a dance between your body and your soul, when you clear your mind of the endless chatter and your body is relaxed and pain free (or as much as possible) then your soul or heart can speak clearly using the the connection with body through your hand. You can also use your voice and record yourself if writing doesn’t work for you.
