About Me

Often times, in the madness of the modern world, we neglect ourselves.  We get so wrapped up in planning a life, that we can forget to actually live. We tend to store up a whole manner of emotions and stress, and carry them along with us on our journey. Sometimes, we aren’t even aware that we are, but we all do it. If you broke a bone but never sought the correct medical attention, would you expect it to heal correctly, if at all? Of course not!  It’s more probable that further physical problems would manifest because of it.  Nevertheless we do this with our emotions.  If we never let go of them, the negative energy blocks our internal energies (Chakras). Eventually it will manifest into mental, physical and/or emotional distress of some kind.  Until the cause is addressed (negativity released, energies unblocked), the cycle will continue. 

I have always craved the peace and serenity of nature, and have long been drawn to the subtle, and often powerful energies it possesses. I am a fully qualified Reiki Practitioner, and have been working with Reiki for over 5 years. Initially, I restricted it’s use to myself and my family, mainly because of self doubt.  However once I opened it up to friends, the positive feedback was overwhelming and they have convinced me that I needed to make my treatments available to everyone. I am fully insured and am accredited by The International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine (IPHM),

I live just outside the beautiful and picturesque Stratford upon Avon with my fabulous Fiance, Esther, and our cheeky and naughty (but adorable) little dog, Hatti. Esther is also a therapist with over 25 years experience of making people beautiful. I could rave about how amazing she is, but hey, this is suppose to be about me! You can read all about her and the incredible treatments she offers here.  She is trained to First Degree Reiki, so Reiki is given as a bonus while having a treatment with her! Our tranquil treatment room is attached to our home.  

I hope to welcome you soon,

Just for today,

- Reiki Principles

About Reiki (in a nutshell!)

Reiki is based on the principle of Universal Life Energy.   It works to enhance the body’s natural healing ability.  Reiki aims to change and balance the energy fields in and around your body to help on a physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual level.

Reiki is:

  • Calming
  • Healing
  • Balancing

Reiki is not:

  • Harmful
  • Mumbojumbo!
  • Religious

Reiki is a simple, gentle and hands on energy technique that allows the body to relax and thus facilitate the level of relaxation required by the body to initiate the body’s self healing process. Reiki practitioners do not diagnose conditions, nor do they prescribe medical treatment, prescribe substances, nor will Reiki interfere with any treatment or medicines prescribed by a Doctor. Reiki does not take the place of medical care, but compliments any medical or psychological treatments that may be being received.

How Reiki Can Help You

During a Reiki session, muscles are relaxed, and energy flow is unblocked. This helps reduce physical tension and pain. Anxiety and stress also are reduced, helping to unblock and release emotional pain. Reiki brings inner peace and harmony. It can clean and clear your emotions.

Regular Reiki treatments can bring about a calmer and more peaceful state of being, in which people are better able to cope with everyday stress. This mental balance also enhances learning, memory and mental clarity. Reiki can heal emotional wounds and can help alleviate mood swings, fear, frustration and even anger. Reiki can also strengthen and heal personal relationships. Because Reiki enhances your capability to love, it can open you up to the people around you and help your relationships grow.

Most clients feel a sense of relaxation and peace. Your mind will calm and your physical body should feel relaxed. Many clients tend to fall asleep during the session due to the deep relaxation it brings. Don’t worry though, you will still receive all of the benefits of the session, even if you sleep.

Some clients have spiritual experiences.  It is also quite normal to see your energy shifting in the form of colours and shapes.  Some have vivid visions or feel like they are floating.  Others see nothing but feel complete relaxation.   At the hand placements, you may feel a very slight tingling, heat, energy, or nothing at all. The sensations or lack of are not a barometer of the Reiki, they are just how your particular body senses energy.  Reiki is a very personal experience and it tends to be different for all.  There is no ‘right’ way to feel. 

'Hands on' or off?

The choice is yours. Most clients like the warmth and comfort of feeling the energy directly with a very gentle touch.  There are standard hand placements beginning at your head down to your feet, avoiding all sensitive body parts.  For women, my hands will hover a few inches above your body in those areas at the hand positions with no actual touch. Some people dislike their feet being touched, or equally, the entire session can be with no touch at all.  The choice is completely yours.  I need you to feel totally comfortable. Your preferences will be discussed during your consultation.

What's a Chakra?

The word ‘Chakra’ literally translates to wheel or circle.  I always imagine Chakras as little spinning fans at concentrated energy points throughout the body.  We have 7 major ones: Crown, Third Eye, Throat, Heart, Sacral, Solar Plexus and Root. Just as a fan can get clogged with dirt and spin slowly, or even block completely, our Chakras are the same way. If they become unbalanced or blocked, emotional and/or physical illness can occur.  We need to keep them balanced and healthy to ensure our optimum wellness.  Reiki energy unblocks and balances the Chakras.

If you are just curious to experience Reiki, or just need to feel refreshed and relaxed, a single energy healing session can give you the clearing and balancing you need in the moment.  Small issues or little niggles of pain could be resolved in these sessions.  You may need more than one treatment for deeper routed issues.

For deeper seated issues, more than one session is generally required.  A minimum of 4 treatments on a weekly basis is typically recommended. For wellness maintenance, weekly or monthly sessions are suggested. Sessions bought in packages is much more cost effective as you can see below.

Some clients find that they have progressively deeper experiences when they continue the treatment. Besides the immediate experience of Reiki, one may also experience other healthy changes like stronger digestion, a sense of being more centered and a more restful sleep.
