Usui and Karuna Reiki ® Treatments and Workshops
What is Reiki and how can it help you?
Are you looking for that missing part of your life, that elusive thing that you know deep down you have not yet found? Reiki shines a beautiful light on your path gently allowing you to find it.
Reiki (pronounced 'Ray-key') is a Japanese word which means "Universal Life Force Energy".
It has been known since ancient times that an unseen energy flows through all living things and that this energy directly affects our quality of health and general well-being.
Reiki is the name given to this system of natural healing which was re-discovered by the Japanese theologist, Dr. Mikao Usui, towards the end of the 19th century.
A Reiki treatment is a gentle non-intrusive healing process whereby healing energy (Reiki)is channelled through the therapist's hands to the recipient. No massage or manipulation is involved - the therapist simply places their hands either on, or slightly above, the body and the recipient's Being will draw as much Reiki as is required at that moment. It is helpful to understand that this healing energy comes directly from the universe, not the therapist.
Reiki benefits the whole person - body, mind, emotions and spirit and can create many beneficial effects including relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being. You may experiencsensations of heat, coolness, tingling, feel floaty or heavy, see colours or have dream-like e experiences.
During your treatment you remain fully clothed and will be made comfortable on a treatment couch with pillows and a blanket if you wish. Gentle background music and subtle aromas will ensure a deeply relaxing experience.
Reiki may promote healing by:
- Releasing blocked energies
- Detoxifying the body
- Restoring balance
- Energising the system
Reiki is a holistic therapy which supports the body's natural ability to heal itself and may be used in conjunction with standard medical procedures.
For the healthy, Reiki promotes vitality, peace of mind and a profound sense of well being. Reiki is therefore a wonderful gentle therapy for the expectant mother and baby.
As Reiki tailors itself to the needs of the recipient on the day, the way a treatment is perceived varies considerably - both from person to person and from treatment to treatment. Here are some typical comments:
"I would never have believed such a thing was possible - never before have I been aware of such pure unconditional love".
"I experienced heat and waves of energy".
"I feel as though I have found something I have been looking for all my life - it is like coming home."
"Since having Reiki treatments I find I am calmer and more accepting of my situation".
"I now feel more centred and confident in social situations I would prevously have found difficult".
The Reiki Principles
- Just for today, let go of anger
- Just for today, let go of worry
- Just for today, give thanks for your many blessings
- Just for today, be kind to every living thing
- Just for today, work hard
(NOTE in this context 'work' refers our personal or spiritual development)
You will notice that all the above statements are preceded by the phrase 'Just for today'. This phrase is very important - if we become bogged down by the perceived enormity of our problems and difficulties and see these projecting into the days, weeks or even years ahead, we feel overwhelmed and powerless. However by taking things a step at a time and focussing on the immediate moment (i.e. thinking more in terms of 'just for today') we regain control and feel far more empowered.
DO YOU WISH TO LEARN HOW TO CHANNEL REIKI YOURSELF?
Anyone can learn how to channel Reiki - you do not require any previous experience or training and your spiritual beliefs are immaterial.
There are four distinct stages along the Usui Reiki path: Reiki 1, Reiki 2 (minimum Practitioner Level), Reiki 3 (Master Practitioner) and Reiki Master Teacher.
Some Reiki Masters offer Reiki 1 and 2 over consecutive days, but I prefer to allow a period of time between Level 1 and Level 2. A Reiki attunement is a sacred life-changing event and I feel it is better to allow the Being time to fully integrate the affects of Reiki 1 before moving on to Reiki 2 - you will know when the time is right for you to progress to Reiki 2
USUI REIKI LEVEL 1 is primarily about self healing, but you would also learn how to channel this wonderful healing energy for the benefit of friends and loved ones, pets, plants etc.
Some people ask how it is possible to learn Reiki in such a short time. The answer is that “you don’t”! During the workshop you will be attuned/initiated into the Reiki energy and it is this tuning of your energy system that allows the power of the universe to flow through you. This process is like the planting of a seed. In the ensuing days, weeks and months the universal energy works with you to cleanse and clear your system allowing you to achieve a deeper link to the universe and to yourself. You will also learn how to tap into the Universal Life Force Energy, thus enabling you to bring its healing power into your life and into the lives of those around you.
This powerful and ancient healing system is one of the fastest growing systems in the country today. Reiki can be used by everyone, with or without religious or spiritual beliefs. Reiki compliments, and is compatible with, all other forms of therapy. The personal investment for this life-changing workshop is £150
USUI REIKI LEVEL 2 is the next step on the Reiki journey and enhances the flow of Reiki energy through your Being. This workshop equips you to bring Reiki healing into the lives of others and enables you to become a Reiki practitioner, if that is your chosen path. You will be attuned to three powerful symbols and shown how to incorporate these into your practice of Reiki, for example how to transmit healing through time and space. A detailed manual and certificate will be provided. The Personal investment for this workshop is £200

My next REIKI 2 workshop will be held later in 2024 so please contact me if you feel ready to progress to Reiki 2.
