What can Reiki Healing Help With?
Reiki can help with all manner of physical illnesses, and psychological problems as well. Reiki works on all levels, physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual to bring the body back into wholeness and balance. If you suffer from arthritis, breathing problems, insomnia, depression, anxiety states, cancer, Reiki can be of benefit to you.
Comforting when life is tough
The relaxing nature of Reiki can be very helpful to people especially at difficult times in our lives. We can all feel overwhelmed or disconnected, sometimes there is a real sense of isolation, both emotionally and spiritually. Reiki treatments can bring feelings of peace, centeredness and an ability to cope better with the challenges of life.
Reiki can be beneficial in circumstances that are short term, but can also support people dealing with long-standing conditions, helping to bring comfort, acceptance and a more positive outlook.
Supportive during pregnancy
Reiki can be wonderful for pregnant women. Treatments can be very relaxing and enjoyable for the mother.
Calming for children
Children usually love Reiki. The length of a session is often shorter than it would be for an adult.
Helpful at the end of life
In such cases Reiki can be a great comfort, helping to promote a sense of peace and acceptance for the dying and their families.
What training have I received?
I hold the certification of first degree Reiki.
Any Reiki practitioner will have done at least first degree Reiki. A 'good' practitioner is not necessarily the one with the highest degree. It is important that they use Reiki on a regular basis, including treating themselves. Reiki is believed to become stronger the more you use it, so a first degree practitioner who uses Reiki daily may give a stronger treatment than a master who does not use Reiki regularly.
How do I know you are the right practitioner for me?
Have a chat with me before you book a session. Ask me about my own journey with Reiki. Why was I drawn to do it? Who did I learn with? You could also talk to others who have had a Reiki session with me. But ultimately trust your own heart. If you feel happy after your chat, book a session. If you are not completely comfortable then try someone else. Practitioners should do their best to make a Reiki treatment a comfortable experience. Trust your intuition and, if you don't feel at ease with the practitioner, don't be afraid to look further.
What happens during a treatment?
I will give a short explanation of what the treatment involves. You will be asked some details, including a brief medical history. You will be asked to lie down (or sit if this is easier for you) but will not be asked to remove any clothing except for things which could restrict your breathing or comfort, such as shoes or spectacles. Reiki will go through clothing, blankets, or even a plaster cast if necessary!
Treatments are delivered in verbal silence with no noise apart from soothing background music.
Treatment is given by me placing my hands gently on your body in a pre-determined sequence of hand positions, spending several minutes holding each position. These hand positions are non-intrusive and cover both the front and back of the body and are sometimes varied to give Reiki to areas where it is specifically needed. If you find any of the hand positions uncomfortable please tell the me. The touch is gentle, light and comfortable; there is no massage or manipulation. You may feel sensations such as heat, tingling, coolness or throbbing under the practitioners' hands or in other parts of your body, or you may feel very little. Many people experience a sense of well being and relaxation, or fall asleep; sometimes a treatment is energizing. There is no right or wrong way to experience Reiki. The treatment will last at least 1 hour.
Will Cat diagnose what is wrong with me?
Reiki practitioners are not trained in diagnosis and will not offer any diagnosis or prognosis. If you are concerned about symptoms you should see your gp.
How will I feel after the treatment?
Most people feel relaxed and at peace after a Reiki treatment. You may feel tired but equally you may feel full of energy. Reiki can also stir up emotions as part of the healing process and some people experience what is known as a healing reaction, such as headache or flu-like symptoms, which are normally of short duration. If you are concerned about a reaction to a treatment talk to me.
How many treatments will I need?
This varies from person to person. In general most problems will take time - healing is a process rather than an event. Acute problems generally heal faster than chronic ones and if your problem is of long standing it may require treatments over a longer period of time. I may suggest a number of treatments close together or 4 treatments on consecutive days. However you should feel free to make the decision about the spacing of treatments yourself. You are ultimately responsible for your own health and well being.
Where do I go for this treatment?
Cat practices from her home in a relaxing environment. Details will be given out on booking.
On an exception basis, if you need me to come to your place of work or home there will be an additional charge.
