Reiki Treatment Benefits
Invite the light into your energy body & life
Reiki is immediately blissfully relaxing and completely non-invasive. Reiki brings about a deep state of calm and release of physical & emotional tensions and strains. This is usually the deepest sensation of peace the client has ever experienced.The client most often experiences a prolonged period of Theta brain waves -a state of inner peace, similar to deep meditation where the thinking mind is utterly still. This is a state of connection with super-consciousness, where we are open to the creative and intuitive resources of the mind. We let go of physical, emotional or practical "don't wants" and move in the direction of the "Do wants". The body and mind begins to repair itself. We release resistance and struggle of the "lower mind" and begin to flow downstream in the direction of our natural state of wellbeing & all good.

Your Reiki Treatment
The treatment room & set-up
Short consultation -ie what do you want from this treatment?
Optional intention-setting, clarification & fine-tuning of what you do want prior to your treatment. For example, what is the situation you don't want, telling you, you do want? (Or we simply begin the treatment and allow the Reiki to go where it is needed most)
A Reiki treatment follows set, non-invasive hand positions on, or over the body.
You will remain fully clothed throughout the treatment (you may remove your shoes).
The room is perfectly heated and cooled
A Reiki Treatment takes place on a massage table with warm blankets and pillows for comfort.
The room is softly lit with low lighting, candles (during winter), essential oil dispersing & gentle music playing.
It is completely acceptable to fall asleep (the treatment will continue to work.) Alternatively you can talk if you wish.
Feedback and a chance for you to discuss your experience and anything that came up during the treatment (also optional)
We advise the longer treatments for your first treatment (75 mins or 90 mins), especially if you are new to Reiki
After Your Reiki Treatment
How to assist the healing process
We advise doubling your intake of water, just like you would do after a massage to assist with detoxification
Immediately after the treatment you may feel elated, as if you are not fully of this world! (Enjoy the experience and get home safely!)
You may (but not necessarily) experience emotions & physical symptoms rising to the surface to clear out over the proceeding 3 days.
Things may come to the surface so that you can acknowledge them. This is like an "echo" from the past. It is not a new situation.
If any emotions or physical discomforts do arise the best thing that you can do, is is acknowledge and accept. (This in itself is the healing process)
I am available for feedback if you are worried. All is well!
You may also feel completely "zonked", like you could sleep at unusual hours and still have a full night's sleep. If you have the opportunity, allow your body to rest. This is one of the best ways for the body & spirit to recover and repair. It's like a computer upgrade & reboot!
If something comes up that is not about Reiki, or you have concerns, take the necessary steps in the way most appropriate for your health and well-being. Reiki is very empowering
By the fourth day after treatment, you will probably feel that you are in a totally different place. It usually feels like any detox symptoms have completely disappeared. You will feel better then ever and see the full benefits of the treatment.
Action steps may come through inspired ideas. Synchronicities and happenstances may also occur, where you intuit and understand clearly that there is a message for you or a path.
You may wish to book in for 3 follow-up Reiki Treatments. (4 sessions is usually advised for a specific "challenge")
You may feel like you have a totally new perspective and totally refreshed & uplifted in body, mind and spirit!
What is Reiki?
How Does it Work?
Reiki is a Japanese word that can be translated as “sacred energy”. The origins of Reiki are rooted in Eastern traditions and a range of practices including the martial arts and Buddhism. Reiki is administered by “laying on hands”. Source energy in the form of ki is transferred through the palms of the practitioner allowing stress-reduction, healing and a state of equilibrium. Reiki treats the whole person including body, mind, spirit and emotions.
Reiki works on the energy body, including the aura, chakras, meridians, nadis, the nervous system and endocrine system. Everything, including non-living objects are energy fields -this is scientific fact. Energy fields can be worked upon and transformed.
In practice Reiki is extremely simple. The Reiki practitioner is working as a conduit for Reiki energy. Everyone can learn Reiki easily, once they are attuned. It is a very natural and familiar energy to us. We do not talk of people being better at Reiki, as it is the Reiki energy doing the work.
We can, perhaps, become much improved conduits, in essence by emptying ourselves of all that is not, to recognize and allow all that is .
We are always working with free will in a Reiki treatment; this doesn't mean that the client has to consciously will the treatment to work, in fact they could fall asleep if they wished and the Reiki would still work -it simply means that on some level the client has to be open to having the treatment. We come to Reiki of our own volition, and allow loved ones to arrive when they are ready.
We look forward to the day when extensive studies can clearly demonstrate the many uses and benefits of Reiki. Preliminary scientific studies show Reiki is effective for pain-relief, stress, anxiety & depression.
We have personally experienced Reiki bringing about amazing results on just about anything! It is a fantastic healing tool. Healing means to bring about wholeness. This generally take the form of acceptance, understanding , release (whether we are consciously aware of moving through that process or not). With Reiki often the "result" is exactly what we asked for and more -usually this may come about in a surprising and simple way. Sometimes the result is acceptance and making peace with what is, and acknowledging that there is a bigger plan in effect.
With Reiki the client and the practitioner are always handing over the responsibility for "results" to the power that is. Reiki energy is infinitely more intelligent than the human mind.
Reiki is empowering; you leave with the understanding that you are a spiritual being on a spiritual journey, and equal to all other beings on this journey called life
