What is Reiki?
Reiki is a universal healing energy that is administered by the hands, either via touch or holding the hands near the body. Hands will not be laid on the body in sensitive areas.
So, how does Reiki work I hear you ask?
In layman terms, think about the impact on your body that your thinking has. When you are stressed, angry and or anxious how does your body feel?
The above emotions are generated by a thought and this is why thoughts have energy and this energy if left unchecked has an impact on your physical body, for example when stressed, you probably wear your shoulders as earrings? When anxious you feel intense butterflies in the pit of your stomach or you become tight chested.
This negative energy is stored in your body and affects the natural flow of universal life force energy that can lead to dis-ease. During Reiki, the life force energy flows through your body synchronising and energising your vital meridian points while aligning and balancing the major chakras. It removes these stagnant blocks of energy to aid in restoring physical and emotional well-being that in turn can benefit your health. Due to this being a natural healing process, it’s important to know that I’m not a healer, but simply a channel for the Universal life force energy to flow. If you have any further questions, please ask.

What does a Reiki treatment feel like?
We are all different and therefore people will experience different sensations or emotions during their Reiki treatment. It all depends on what the individual requires at the time of their Reiki session. The most common reported sensations are: –
- A deep relaxation
- Feel sensations of heat
- Sensations of tingling
- Seeing colours
- Feeling emotional, which is OK as this means harmony is being restored

How long does Reiki last following a treatment?
A Reiki treatment can last days, if not weeks and regular treatments will usually take place on a monthly basis. It really depends on you and your requirements.
Are there any side effects from a Reiki session?
You may feel emotional during or after a Reiki treatment session that is down to the release of toxins from the body. It’s the same as receiving a massage and you should drink plenty of water afterwards and not drive straight away.
What is a healing crisis?
Some people and practitioners can experience what is known as a healing crisis. This is the release of toxins or pent up emotions that have been deep seated for years. A better terminology would be a healing cleansing as the phrase healing crisis is in my opinion, negative and worrying.
Common symptoms of a healing cleansing can be mild flu symptoms, emotional release, headache or tiredness and they don’t last more than a day or so. Please discuss this in more detail with your Reiki practitioner who should put your mind at ease at all times including after your treatment.
Are there occasions when a Reiki treatment cannot be performed?
Due to the flow of healing energy, you must not be under the influence of alcohol or recreational drugs.
Other considerations will be discussed during your consultation.
Are you insured to perform Reiki?
Yes I am insured to perform Reiki and I’m also a registered member of The Reiki Guild.
Can Reiki be used instead of medical treatment?
A Reiki practitioner will never diagnose an illness and Reiki does not replace a doctor or regular treatment. It can be delivered along side treatments to aid physical and psychological healing
Is Reiki a religion?
Reiki is spiritual in nature and is not a religion although it’s important that the practitioner lives and acts in a way that promotes harmony.
Are you trained to perform Reiki?
I am a trained Reiki Master my Reiki lineage has been approved by the Reiki Guild. I continue my professional development at all times, evidenced in my Reiki Journal.

I had reiki from Mandy and reflexology from Mark yesterday and have to say it was amazing!! They are both extremely knowledgeable and explained everything before and throughout the process. I felt so relaxed throughout both treatments. Mandy gave me some great tips for my poor sleep and I used them when I woke up in the night and they worked! I have already booked in for my next session and cannot wait. I would highly recommend people try itEmma 17/02/19
