What is Reiki
Reiki means Universal Life Force Energy and it is a touch healing system that has ancient origins. Valid for everyone it helps any living thing, never causes harm and its energy can complement other healing methods - aiding conventional medical treatments as well as other holistic therapies.
In a Reiki treatment the Life Force from the Universe is channelled through the practitioner to the client. Energy is transmitted through the hands and fingers of the therapist as they either place their hands gently on the body, or just above in the client’s aura or energy field. The Universal Energy has its own intelligence; it will go to wherever it is needed and can work on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels, therefore treating the whole person and the cause of their condition rather than just addressing their symptoms.
Reiki has 5 main effects
It can bring about deep relaxation
It can dissolve energy blockages
It can help with detoxification
It supplies healing Universal Energy
It increases the vibrational frequency of the body
Together these effects result in the energising and rebalancing of the individual which can then facilitate wellbeing.

Sarah’s Reiki Treatments
During my reiki treatments I sometimes use crystals to enhance the chakras (the body’s energy centres), and I use the Tibetan singing bowls to initiate relaxation at the start of a session. Treatments cost £30 and last between an hour and an hour and a half. I feel it is important for there to be enough time to discuss what has emerged during the session so the client can feel empowered in their own healing. For any further information, or to book a treatment, please get in touch using the contact page.
Sarah’s Reiki Courses
As a Reiki Master-Teacher I really enjoy teaching and attuning people to Reiki and enabling them in this wonderful healing system:
Reiki 1 is known as the light switch and opens the healing centres in the hands.
It is a two day course during which time you will receive four attunements and learn the first Reiki symbol and hand positions for healing, so enabling self-healing and healing for friends and family. The course costs £120.
Reiki 2 increases the energy given in Reiki 1 and enables emotional and absent or distance healing. Two attunements are given and you will learn two more Reiki symbols. This is a two day course and costs £140.
Reiki 3 Master-Practitioner is known as The Great Shining Light and is all energy balancing. During this two day course two attuenements are given and the fourth Reiki symbol is taught. This symbol shifts the receiver’s energy into a higher dimension so increasing personal energy and healing presence. The course costs £200.
