The method of receiving Reiki is simple. The recipient remains fully clothed and lies on a couch or sits in a chair, (if you are unable to lie on a couch) and relaxes. I start by leading you into a relaxing state and then I start with various hand positions around the recipients head, followed by a body scan where I have my hands about 4 inches above your body. I then gently place my 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 Reiki energy goes to where it is needed.
What do Reiki treatments do?
The relaxing nature of Reiki can be very helpful to people especially at difficult times in their lives. We can all feel overwhlemed or disconnected, sometimes there is a real sense of isolation, both emotionally and spiritually. Reiki treatments can bring feelings of peace, centredness and an ability to cope better with challenges of life. Reiki energy flushes energy through your meridians to clear any blockages that cause you problems such as stress, anxiety, aches, pains etc. This assists the body's self healing.
On your first Reiki session, I will do a full consultation and explain to you what Reiki is and what you can expect during the sessions, and most importantly, how it can help you.
Once the consultation has been completed, and you are ready to have the treatment, you will be asked to lay on your back on a couch (unless you have asked to have the session sat in a chair). I have towels and pillows to make you as comfortable as possible. You will remain fully clothed , I advise you wear clothes that you can relax in.
You will be asked to close your eyes and relax while I do some guided mediation to help you relax ready to receive the treatment. This will start with various positions around your head with my hands. This will be followed by doing a body scan where my hands will be approx 4 inches above your body. After this there is Light touch to your shoulders, collar bone, neck, arms, hips, legs and the top of your feet (You will be asked during the consultation if there are any areas of these that you don't want me to touch, and also, if you would prefer hands off treatment)
There will also be an option for me to use crystals if you wish, for full details of the crystals I use, please see further down this page.
After the Reiki treatment is finished, I will gradually bring you back out of the relaxed state where you can open your eyes.
Each person experiences Reiki differently depending on their individual needs at the time. Clients may or may not feel sensations during Reiki treatment. Benefits reported recipients include deep relaxation promoting a calm, peaceful sense of well being on all levels.Some people feel sensations of heat, tingling, or experience seeing colours whilst others can have an emotional response, indicating that shifts of energy are taking place, allowing harmony to be restored.

During the Reiki session, I can use crystals to enhance the experience. These are usually placed on your body (This is optional and will be discussed during the consultation).
The Crystals I use are as follows;
