Reiki Treatments – Jane is now a qualified Reiki Practitioner

Our Holistic Therapist Jane is now a qualified Reiki practitioner and is a mobile therapist, visiting you at your home.

What is Reiki?

The formal definition of Reiki describes “a Japanese technique for relaxation and stress reduction that also promotes healing”.  It is often perceived as quite a profound, almost spiritual, process which harmonises and balances the flow of energy around the body, creating a feeling of deep relaxation and peace in the client.  This provides the perfect environment to support the body’s normal and natural healing processes, which are often hampered by excessive stress or tension (which many people suffer in daily life).

What happens during a treatment?

During a treatment the client remains fully clothed and the reiki practitioner will place their hands lightly on or around the client’s body, treating the whole person rather than specific areas – there is no massage or manipulation of the body involved so it is often an ideal therapy for those who perhaps do not like hands-on massage, or who cannot receive standard massage therapies for other reasons.

Why I love Reiki by Jane – our qualified practitioner

“I personally wanted to study Reiki because, perhaps like a lot of people, I had heard some incredible stories about this technique from people who had either experienced or studied Reiki and, to be honest, I was a bit skeptical about it all and wanted to learn more for myself!  I also thought, if I then decided to learn Reiki, that it would complement the other massage therapies I currently offer – I’m very interested in the “holistic” and “whole body” aspects of therapy and I’m constantly looking for varied techniques that can help support clients in their general wellbeing.

It’s a very supportive technique

I can happily say now that I was absolutely blown away by learning Reiki!  I was fortunate enough to find a teacher who took a lot of time to explain and guide her trainees through the processes involved and, from the very first class, I realised that this was a very real and very supportive technique that I just had to learn! It has taken me over a year to gain my practitioner certificate (did I mention my teacher took her time?  Unlike some of the shorter day or weekend Reiki courses, we were all expected to study and fully embrace the Reiki principles, and then complete a series of case studies before being “released into the wild” with our certificates!).

It even helped my fear of flying!

I can definitely say now that Reiki has completely changed my life – and for the better!  As most Reiki practitioners will tell you, it becomes a way of life for those who learn it and it’s now something that I use every single day – from helping me to stay calm in stressful work situations; getting me relaxed and stopping my mind buzzing before I go to sleep at night (I have really bad insomnia!); and trying to alleviate headaches or cold symptoms – I’ve even used it to help reduce my fear of flying!!!

Give it a try and see what Reiki can do for you!

I personally think Reiki is an incredibly supportive modality for physical, mental and emotional wellbeing and can create a really deeply relaxed, almost meditative, state in the receiver.  It can help reduce stress levels, ease tension, and reduce headaches and insomnia – any quick search online will also bring up a number of additional benefits that people have experienced, but why not give it a try and see what it can do for you?”
