What is Reiki?


Reiki is a form of complementary and alternative medicine. Evidence shows it can reduce daily stress and help with management of some chronic diseases.


Reiki is a Japanese spiritual healing technique developed by Dr Mikayo Usui over more than 100 years ago.  It is a hands-on energetic healing technique in which practitioners help your body heal itself through touch. 

The Japanese word Reiki translates to ‘universal life force’. 

‘Rei’ universal, omnipresent.
‘Ki’ gives life to all living things.


Ki is the very essence of the soul, it stays within us our entire lifetime. 


When life flows with ease, when you are healthy and happy, Ki energy moves freely throughout your body. It is strong and unencumbered, and you have a higher resistance to illness and disease. 


When you are stressed, tired, or unhappy your Ki energy is low, you can be more susceptible to disease, sickness and negativity and may find it difficult to deal with life’s challenges. 

Reiki is the highest and most profound vibration of life – life force.  


When channelled, Reiki rebalances and revitalises our Ki, physically, emotionally and spiritually. It assists to recalibrate the body, raising energetic vibration, nurturing our bodies to reduce stress and anxiety and promote healing by removing energetic blockages and stagnancy.


Healing with Reiki healing is ‘whole’istic, yet gentle in nature. It is an effective technique used to  restore balance to our entire being, mind body and spirit.

What to expect in a session...


Each Reiki healing will commences with a relaxed chat and a herbal tea on the mat. We use this time to connect and talk about how you are feeling, what brought you in for a session and any emotional and physical symptoms you may be experiencing. (Via phone if a distance session).

Through spiritual coaching and mind body medicine, I’ll support you in exploring any emotional discomfort and physical pains or stiffness you may be holding. Offering you the opportunity to inquire deeper, and perhaps prepare to release what no longer serves you. 


We then move to the healing table , I will ask you to lay down. (Or in a quiet comfortable space for distance healings). I'll guide you to take some time to get comfortable within your body and bring your awareness to your breath to assist with relaxing while creating a mantra to assist with your healing.

I begin the Reiki, scanning through your chakras to gain an understanding of your starting energetic position and them move onto the hands on treatment. With your permission, I place my hands on your body (or hover above if more comfortable) as the Reiki energy flows to you. During this time I am guided intuitively where to send the healing, mind, body and spirit, balancing your chakras and releasing stagnancy.


Once complete, we will spend some time chatting about the session, I provide feedback and any messages that came forward for you as well as any relevant rituals or therapies to assist your healing journey at home. You have the space to share any details from your experiences or ask any questions. We close the session by complete a sealing ritual together.​



What are my options?

Reiki Healings are available in person or via distance.

There is no variance in result as universal is not confined by space or time.

You can choose the comfort of your own home or a getaway to the studio.

Initial sessions are 90 minutes, with consecutive sessions 60 minutes.




What does receiving Reiki feel like?

You may experience the energy in the form of sensations such as warmth, tingling or pulsing where I have placed my hands. Some people feel sensations moving throughout the body, while other people do not perceive any change at all.

Can anyone have Reiki?

Yes, anyone! Adult, child, baby, pets and plants! There are no known contraindications for Reiki. It is generally regarded as a safe, non-invasive practice that does not compete with other interventions.

How often should I have Reiki?

It is really up to you. After your initial session, in our Seal phase, we can discuss how the Reiki energy felt and put together a maintenance plan. This might be coming back in a week, or a month but ultimately, it is up to you to listen to your body and know when it is time for a 'tune up'.
