What is Reiki?
Reiki is a healing technique that originated in Japan. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word "Rei" which means Life Force, and "Ki" which means Energy. Together "Life Force Energy".
What Is My Experience With Reiki?
The first time I received Reiki was in my early twenties, fresh out of a traumatic 4 year relationship. My heart felt like it had broken into a million tiny pieces. My mom had just finished a Reiki course at the time, so I agreed to let her to practice on me. Lying on the massage table before the treatment, I felt nervous and scared not knowing what was about to happen. Then the session started, I closed my eyes and felt an undeniable numbing sensation on my face. My thoughts were completely still. In that moment, all I felt was peace and calm. My entire body was relaxed, and I could finally breathe without heaviness in my heart. It was a truly beautiful experience for me. Shortly after this session, I realised that I needed to learn more about my heart and soul. I had a strong desire to go inwards, so I started learning about meditation, Reiki and other healing modalities. From that day onwards my my life changed forever, and I’ve been practising Reiki for over 8 years.

Why Is Reiki Becoming So Popular Nowadays?
Because more people are being open and vulnerable in sharing their transformational stories about energy healing. Even Ellen DeGeneres, Gwyneth Paltrow, Halle Berry and Angelina Jolie openly discuss their love for Reiki.
How Does Reiki Work?
The Reiki Practitioner uses a ‘Life Force’ energy from the universe, which is sent to your chakras, and spiritual body layers. You’ll receive this beautiful and loving reiki energy, which will help you to feel lighter, happier, and more peaceful.
Many clients contact me because they feel emotions such as grief, loneliness hurt and/or anger from stressors or a specific experience they have endured. These experiences could be a significant trauma such as a miscarriage or may also be smaller shocks to our mental, psychological or physical systems from which dense emotions accumulate over time. Waking up with these emotions everyday is not easy. This dense and heavy feeling can be felt in your head, heart or stomach area. When you’re in that state of being, it’s also easy to believe that these feelings are never going to leave and are going to stay forever.
When these emotions don’t move through us, we end up feeling stuck and rigid in this state of being. The circulation of our life force energy gets impeded, much like a river with too much debris and rocks. Receiving life-force energy gives a gentle nudge to the emotional debris and can help you move through these emotions, which makes room for you to feel more peace, and love.
Do you have anxious thoughts? Are you craving a less cluttered mind? Do you wish you you woke up with a sense of peace rather than worry? After receiving a healing treatment, you will experience less thoughts and worries. A lot of my clients say after 3-4 sessions they can easily go into stillness and meditate, something they were not able to do before the Reiki sessions. Why? Because thoughts are energy. When you get a Reiki treatment, the love energy from the universe is flowing into your chakras, helping unwanted thoughts to move and dissipate into the core of mother earth.
Have you ever heard that quote by Einstein, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results”? Many clients come to me because they are looking for a shift in their current life. Whether it be career, relationships, health, or money, they are wanting a transformation but are unsure of how to begin, or how let go of old, unhealthy habits. When we bring our attention towards doing work on our inner realms, our outer world starts to change. It just starts with being open and willing to go inside, and be present with your soul. When your soul feels more presence and love, this is when your outer reality starts to shift. Reiki is one of the best ways to feed your soul more love, and a Reiki practitioner can guide you on making lasting changes, creating the results you seek to see in your external world.
How long does a Reiki session last?
