Usui Reiki

Usui Reiki

I practice hands on Reiki and so you will feel light touch on various areas of your body. There is no massage, just the placing of hand to channel energy. You may feel different sensations including heat, cool, tingling as the energy passes through. All that is needed is for you to remain open to the energy while you relax and listen to the music and drift off on a heated therapy bed. It is a truly relaxing and healing experience.


All that is required of the recipient is to take their shoes off and although treatments are usually carried out with the recipient lying on a therapy bed, treatment can be given in any comfortable position eg. in a chair if necessary.  A full session of an hour is extremely relaxing in a wonderfully conducive atmosphere.


Reiki can be combined with all healing modalities, including conventional and complementary medicines.


Benefits include that it speeds up healing on all levels-physical, mental, emotional. It detoxifies the body, aids sleep, increases energy and stamina, relaxes you and relieves emotional upset.

Reiki (pronounced ray, key) is a Japanese Healing System used for reducing stress, enhancing relaxation and promoting health. Although it is very ancient in its origin, Reiki is a very simple but powerful healing method.

karuna Reiki

The Karuna Reiki system was developed by William L. Rand, in the 1990s. Over the years William had collected symbols and attunement techniques that others had given him. In the 1990s, along with his peers, he began to work with these symbols and out of this a new system of stronger Reiki evolved. It was decided to name this new system Karuna. Karuna is a Sanskrit word and is used in Hinduism, Buddhism and Zen. It is translated to mean any action that is taken to diminish the suffering of others and can also be translated as "compassionate action".

"Compassion is a state of consciousness, which when combined with energy, has great transformational power."

As Karuna is developed, healing is intensified. The energy has a more definite feeling to it and works on all the energy bodies at the same time. The energy surrounds the practitioner and client instead of simply flowing through them. It also has a grounding effect.

Karuna Energy can be incorporated into any Reiki session.

The word Rei means higher knowledge or spiritual consciousness and it understands each person completely. It knows the cause of all problems and difficulties and how to heal them.

The word Ki means life force energy and is the non-physical energy which fills and animates all living things. So long as we possess this energy we are alive.


If the life force energy is low then a person is more prone to illness. Life force energy plays an important role in all aspects of our lives. It also increases not only our physical energy but also enlivens our mental, emotional, creative and spiritual aspects.


During a treatment Rei guides Ki in the practice we call Reiki. Reiki can therefore be considered spiritually guided life energy. This closely describes the experience most people have of it; Reiki guiding itself with its own wisdom, rather than requiring the direction of the practitioner.

Reiki training

Are you ready to start your journey into Reiki Healing?


I am really passionate about Reiki after my first experience brought on my third child’s labour and birth. It was an amazing experience as I was feeling so out of control until the Reiki Healing which resolved all that for me at that moment. As soon as I was able, I began my own training over a few years and began to practice this and saw how beautifully it sits with Homeopathy and other healing therapies.


As a fully qualified Usui and Karuna Reiki Master Teacher, I offer training in all levels of Reiki. Courses vary according to the number of attendees and are arranged as requested in small groups of no more than six. I also teach on a 1-2-1 basis if needed. Please contact me for more details and to discuss dates.


Undergoing each level of training incorporates the attunements required, along with teaching on how to practice Reiki.  You will also receive a full training manual and certificate. The lineage traces back to Usui and so is perfect if you wish to take the training to any higher practitioner level.
