What is Reiki?

The Therapy REIKI is a Japanese word for Universal Life Force Energy.
Reiki is an ancient system that can be experienced by either 'hands on' or by distant (remote) healing.

The practice of Reiki is believed to come from ancient texts rediscovered and developed by Mikao Usui in Japan early last century (see under History of Reiki). The Japanese word Reiki means 'Universal Energy'. Eastern medicine has always recognised and worked with this energy, which flows through all living things and is vital to the well-being of life. The energy is known as 'ki' in Japan, 'chi' in China, and 'prana' in India. Acupuncture, tai chi and yoga are also based on the free-flow of this energy in a person. As a therapy, Reiki is an effective and simple way of tapping into this energy, and transferring it for the benefit of the receiver, to stimulate the body's own natural healing potential.

The Reiki treatment encourages physical, mental and emotional healing and spiritual growth.

This unique gift of healing is learned by a process of attunements or initiations. A person who has been attuned to Reiki (please see Reiki Attunement Courses) has experienced a very ancient technology for fine tuning the physical and etheric bodies to a higher vibrational level. Also the energy centres, the chakras, are opened to enable the person to channel higher amounts of the Reiki energy.

Reiki is drawn through the practitioner, and the recipient's body will draw the energy to those parts of their body that require it, the practitioner also being healed as he or she gives the treatment. Energy enters through the practitioner's crown chakra and passes through the upper charkas to their heart and solar plexus chakras and passed through arms and hands to the recipient. The process does not drain the practitioner as the Reiki passes through a purified channel that is opened by the attunements.

Uses of Reiki

Reiki can also be used to promote the growth and health of plants and to
germinate seeds.

Reiki has also been used with great success on animals.

Reiki can also be used to heal the Earth, and to direct healing energy to troubled areas of the planet.

Reiki is not a religion, or a belief system, as it holds no creed or doctrine. Reiki will work whether or not you believe in it!

Reiki not only works on the physical level; it can relieve pain, help to regenerate organs and tissue, but also Reiki loosens blocked energy, promotes total relaxation, and works on the mental and emotional levels re-establishing mental well-being and spiritual

Reiki is a transformational tool to help the development of higher levels of consciousness and spiritual awareness. It awakens the inner self to know that it is part of all creation.

Reiki can be used for self healing. Daily self treatments will maintain well being, reduce stress and encourage the body's natural healing abilities.

Reiki is for life, you will not need further attunements.

What are the Benefits?

The energy of Reiki can be used to great effect in many ways. Whether one is suffering from stress or tension, and the many symptoms associated with this, or wishing to improve the quality of relationships at home or work, the beneficial effects of Reiki occur on many levels.

Reiki can accelerate the healing of physical problems, balance the emotions, and free us from restrictive mental attitudes. It may also provide a closer connection with inner wisdom. Reiki encourages and supports positive personal change such as improving the diet, having more rest, exercise or leisure time, and may reduce the need for alcohol and tobacco.

Reiki can allow us to respond more calmly to all events, and build on a more resourceful state of being. Reiki is a gentle energy and may be used safely by all ages, including the newborn, pregnant mothers, surgical patients, the frail and the elderly, regardless of their state of health. Reiki can enhance everyday life, and regular sessions help to ward-off illness and fatigue. Reiki is a non-invasive therapy that can be used without fear of any side-effects or overdose. It may be used with confidence alongside conventional medication or natural remedies because it acts in a complementary way. Reiki is being used in GP surgeries, hospices, cancer support groups, post-operative recovery, drug rehabilitation, prisons, HIV / AIDS centres, and care of the elderly.

What Happens During A Session?

A session is usually carried out with the client lying down or sitting, in a comfortable and peaceful environment. There is no need to remove any clothing. The practitioner places their hands gently, in a series of positions, on or over the body. The client's system automatically draws in only as much Reiki as is needed, using it in whatever way is most appropriate at the time.

Reiki may be felt as a flow of energy, mild tingling, warmth, coolness, other sensations, or nothing at all. Reiki is deeply relaxing, eases stress, and has a calming effect.

Treatment is enhanced if one can rest for a while afterwards and drink plenty of water to help the body detox. Be responsive to the needs of your body, eg resting if tired, and allow the energy to continue its work after the session ends. The beneficial effects may be felt for several days.

Cost per Reiki session which usually last one hour is £60.

Client comments

"Just a big thank you, on your wonderful healing powers that you undertook on my knee.
I had been suffering pain for almost a year in my right knee, whereby it would not sit straight, lying asleep during the night,would cause discomfort and also I had a slight limp and now miraclously you've put it right.
I've recommend you to lots of my friends and they can't believe it, anyhow, Sandra.
Big, big thanks......" Robert

"I recently booked a Reiki session with Sandra after having suffered with a stomach complaint for nearly two months. I was suffering from stomach cramps, burning sensations in the abdomen, acidity, sweats, fatigue, malaise. I could fill the whole page with my symptoms. Needless to say I felt terrible, couldn't eat properly and lost weight.
I hadn't been to see my G.P as I have little faith in them, and I don't think antacids would have been the answer!(Tried them anyway, actually I tried a lot of over the counter meds, but to no avail). Within two days of a one hour Reiki treatment, the cramps and burning had stopped and I could eat a meal without feeling that I was going to die. Two weeks on all symptoms have gone, I am eating normally and have started exercising again, something I felt too weak to do before. I chose to see Sandra as she had previously helped me with a sports injury that conventional medicine and physiopherapy could not address. I am somewhat sceptical of a lot of alternative healing arts, but I am open minded enough to try something to see if it works. Well it has been two out of two for Reiki! (and not two out of two due to any kind of placebo effect!)
I would strongly recommend Sandra to anybody needing healing. Thanks again."H.P

"I felt amazing for the next few days after the reiki you gave me. It was like a lot of dense energy had been lifted, and it gave me a new 'lightness' of being - even total strangers where drawn to come up and talk to me'. Linda

"Many thanks for your help on Wednesday. Although Istill have a small amount of pain in my right shoulder it is much better. Every day the pain is lessening and the mobililty returning. I strongly believe without your treatment Iwould still be in agony and unable to function." Caroline

"I came to see Sandra for sciatic pain which I have had for several months now. I had one session of Reiki and am amazed at what a difference it has made. Although the pain is still there it is now intermittent and very dull. This is in contrast to the constant pain I was in - pain that was very intense. I think one more session should do the trick!" Harinder

"Felt very heady (totally in my heaad) before the session and for quite a while, didn't feel I would be able to let go of any of the 'stuck' (blockages) in my head and start to feel grounded again, but soon into the session I could feel myself leaving my head and relaxing and letting go. I kept drifting in further relaxation and totally let go of my head/thinking and felt as if I had been cleansed and drained of all my stuff! I felt so radiant after the session and want to maintain this feeling/state with my own Reiki and some work from Sandra. I didn't think I could feel so cleansed and relieved after 1 hour - amazing. Thanks so much, Sandra with love from Angela."

"A really wonderful day. Thank you very much Sandra. Your treatments have been really helping with my recovery from candida albicans overgrowth and emotional well-being." Katie

5 year old Saskia had nightmares which stopped her from wanting to go to bed or fall asleep: After one Reiki session her mothers comments the next day:
Dear Sandra,
Thank you very much for all your work on Saskia yesterday. She slept through the night!!!! She was a bit nervous about going to bed at first I think as she kept on finding excuses to get out of the bed and come and talk to us - then she wanted me to stay next to her for a while as she was trying to fall asleep. An interesting point, she wanted to keep a picture we've got of her as a baby (normally on a shelf in her bedroom) next to her bed.
She slept very well without interruption. I let her sleep this morning but she still wanted to go to her playgroup afterwards. Let see how she is this afternoon.  
She was very happy and proud to have slept through. She told me that she did "still see the bad dreams but that she told them "go away, go away" and they went".
Anyway, I hope it will continue that way from now on. Thank you so  much again.
Best regards
" Leila
