Reiki Sessions

Reiki is a Japanese healing system for relaxation and stress relief. It is a natural energy therapy that promotes holistic balance and healing and can benefit us on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. The negative effects of stress on our health and well-being are well documented. It is important to be kind and compassionate to ourselves and to give ourselves the time and space to heal. Self-care is not selfish. 

Healing is a process and a responsibility that cannot be given to someone else. As a Usui Reiki Master-Teacher, I help to facilitate your self-healing by providing a safe and supportive space for us to work together. It is in this dynamic interaction that we can be affected by, and benefit from reiki. 

Usui Reiki Sessions and What to Expect

Potential Benefits of Usui Reiki

1. Stress Reduction: Reiki can help to relax the mind and body, reducing stress and anxiety levels. 

2. Pain Relief: Reiki may help alleviate and provide a way to help manage chronic pain and promote overall well-being. 

3. Improved Mental Clarity: The potential calming and stress-relieving effects of Reiki can lead to improved focus, mental clarity and enhanced concentration. 

4. Emotional Healing: Reiki can help release emotional blockages and promote emotional healing. This can include processing feelings of sadness or grief and increased self-awareness. 

5. Spiritual Wellbeing:  Reiki sessions can create a safe and nurturing space for individuals to explore the spiritual aspect of themselves, and explore any emotional or energetic imbalances that they may be experiencing.  

The Usui Reiki Session Experience

Preparation for Your Session

Before your first reiki session, we will have a consultation and chat to better understand your needs and requirements. This is also your opportunity to ask any questions and discuss any specific areas of your well-being that you would like to give attention.

The Reiki Session

1. Setting the Scene: Before you arrive I will have prepared both the space and myself with my reiki meditation and practice. I will help create a serene and peaceful environment for you with soft lighting/candles, relaxation music and incense if desired.

2. Body Positioning: You will be asked to lie down on a comfortable treatment table, fully clothed. You will be offered blankets, pillows or bolsters to ensure your comfort. If lying down is uncomfortable for you, reiki can also be given seated. 

3. Hand Placements: I will gently place my hands on or above specific areas of your body, such as the head, shoulders, chest, or abdomen. Each position will be held up for up to a few minutes before moving on to the next part of the body. 

4. Energy Flow: During a reiki session I ask for the recipient to receive reiki for their highest good. It is not for me to diagnose or decide what is 'best' for you. Reiki goes wherever it is needed in the body and energy field and helps support your own self-healing abilities.  

5. Relaxation: During the reiki session, it is common to enter a state of deep relaxation. Some clients may fall asleep - this is completely normal. Please don't worry if this happens - I will gently let you know when the session has finished and you will have time to have a drink and discuss anything that you'd like to afterwards.
