Reiki FAQs

Reiki is defined as “a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional wellbeing”.

The system of healing was developed by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century. It is a non-invasive complementary therapy and can be received equally effectively, either in-person or at a distance.

As with humans, Reiki may benefit animals with physical or emotional issues. Consequently, this holistic complementary therapy may also help animals with behavioural problems that have an emotional basis or influence.

Reiki can improve quality of life in general, as well as help with specific issues. It is so gentle that it is suitable for all.

Sessions take place online via Zoom. You can also come to The Studio at Reepham House in Lyndhurst, Hampshire, for an in-person appointment.

During a session, I either sit to one side of you whilst you rest comfortably on the couch (if the session is in-person) or connect with you remotely via Zoom. The therapeutic effect of the session is enhanced when you are relaxed and in a meditative state with your eyes closed, as the human body is able to rejuvenate and move into harmony more effectively when all excess senses are switched off. Many clients fall asleep during sessions as the energy is deeply restorative.

Generally, a session will last about fifty-five minutes.

Clients respond in different ways, depending on their bodies. Some will feel deeply relaxed whilst others may feel refreshed and energised. Occasionally, it can take a few days for the session to integrate into the body.

This is very individual and will depend on the particular issue and how you respond to the session. Some clients come for a few sessions to address a particular issue. Others come regularly, on an ongoing basis, as part of maintaining their overall health and wellbeing.
