What is Reiki?

Reiki is often described as an Energy Healing System and is usually translated as Universal or Spiritual Energy. In the West, it is most commonly associated with the placing of hands on a recipients body as a complementary and holistic therapy. When applied as a treatment, this natural and safe system of hands-on energy healing can help improve a sense of well-being and promote positive feelings at a spiritual level. In this context, 'healing' means restoring balance with a holistic approach which addresses the physical as well as the emotional body

Is Reiki safe for everyone?

Yes, Reiki is safe for everyone including pregnant women, babies, children and elderly people. There are no known contra-indications to Reiki when used on its own.

What can I expect from the treatment?

For most people a Reiki treatment provides a deeply relaxing, almost meditative experience. People often describe a release of stress or anxiety and a general sense of wellbeing. However, the experience is very subjective, changeable and sometimes seemingly very subtle. People may feel heat from the practitioners hands, or tingling sensations either where the hands are placed or across the body. Some people describe seeing colours or visions and may receive either relief from physical pain or the release of negative emotions. Sometimes the effect of Reiki is dramatic, and at other times more subtle and noticed only a while after. Any questions you may have about the treatment can be discussed with you in advance.

How long is a treatment?

Both one to one and distant treatments will last for approximately one hour and fifteen minutes, along with a full consultation and time to ask any questions beforehand and a time for reflection afterwards. Please therefore allow about 1.5 hour for the full session.

Where do the treatments take place?

Treatments are provided in a relaxed and comfortable home setting in the Wimbledon area of South West London (SW19). Full address details will be provided at the time of booking.

What if I need to cancel the treatment?

I understand that it is sometimes not possible to avoid cancellations. Please, do try and provide 24 hours' notice or you may be subject to a £20 cancellation fee.
