What is Reiki? 
Reiki is a type of energy healing improving the flow and balance of your energy by releasing stagnant energy which supports healing.

Every cell in our mind and body works at a vibrational level. When energy becomes stagnant, & unbalanced, energy blocks are created.
Energy blocks impede innate flow of energy, causing not only health problems, but also negative life circumstances like financial troubles or relationship problems.
Reiki practitioners focus on sensing energy blocks & moving the energy for the greatest good of the client.
In your Reiki session, the Reiki practitioners use their hands to deliver energy to your body.

What to expect from a Reiki treatment

The recipient remains clothed and lies on a couch or sits on a chair.

The practitioner will gently place their hands in a series of non-intrusive positions on or near the body. There is no massage or manipulation. The whole person is treated rather than specific areas.

The full session will take up to an hour.

Reiki practitioners are not trained in diagnosis and will not predict any specific outcome from treatment.

If people are concerned about their symptoms they should see a doctor.


Reiki is considered to be safe and gentle for anyone and whilst there is no direct evidence of contraindications to reiki therapy, it has been suggested that under certain circumstances the restoration of the energy balance within the body can have some adverse effects.


Below is a summary of the contraindications to be aware of or to take greater consideration. Please speak to your practitioner prior to booking for further information if you are at all unsure. 

Receiving chemo/ radiotherapy | Clients with pacemakers | Broken bones | Amputee | Epilepsy | Taking blood pressure medication | Taking thyroid medication.

no darkness can penetrate you."

How many sessions do you think I will need? 
This will depend on what you would like to accomplish and where you are on your journey on getting there. 

One or two sessions may be enough for you to create alignment in who you are, and to breakthrough a particular challenge, enough for you to take hold of the reigns of your life.

But following this, you may require a session every now and then to assist you in facing the challenges along your journey, as they surface.

How should I prepare for my Reiki Session?

Please use these points as general guidelines to get the most from your Reiki Session:

1. Take time to reflect.

Allow some time to check in with how your body is feeling; take note of any emotions, thoughts, or physical sensations you are experiencing.

Consider any intentions you want to set for your session, and anything you want to share with your practitioner before you begin.

2. Eat and hydrate.

Avoid eating a heavy meal beforehand, as you don’t want all of your body’s energy to be directed toward digesting while you’re receiving your treatment.

But be sure you've eaten and hydrated a few hours before the session—mostly so you will be comfortable and not distracted by hunger or thirst.

3. Get comfortable.

Be sure you are wearing loose, but breathable clothes. You may feel cooler during your session so consider layers for your session. 

If the position you are in for your session is uncomfortable in any way, communicate this to your practitioner, as they will also want to be sure you are as relaxed as possible.

How should I look after myself after my Reiki Session?

Please use these points as general guidelines to get the most from your Reiki Session:

1. Allow the Reiki energy to be fully integrated.

Try not to book or schedule anything immediately after your session.

Create space to allow the benefits of the Reiki energy to surface. 

Going for a walk, lying down or meditating with your journal are all good options to allow the emotions, memories or new insights to surface. 

2. Eat and hydrate (again)

Energy work is hungry work! Listen to your body and what it needs.

Dark chocolate particularly can help you to ground your energy and hydrate with 1-2 glasses of water to allow the body to release the toxins. 

3. Notice. Reflect. Set Actions

Be aware of any new insights, emotions of feelings that arise during or after the session. I recommend that you write these down, and consider what changes - small or large, that you would like to take that will help you to transcend into the next version of who you are. 

"Give yourself permission to let it hurt but also allow yourself the permission to let it heal."
