What is Reiki?

What is reiki and how does it work?

The concept of humans as energetic beings can seem a bit “out there”, but deep down it’s something that we all inherently know and feel.  We talk about our energy, other people’s energy, and how it affects us; we sometimes describe getting a good or bad vibe from someone.  We can sense a heavy atmosphere when we walk into a room where something has just happened.  We feel uplifted in crowds, at concerts, hearing live music, being in nature…

We know what it is to feel energy shifts, and we know how it affects us.

How Does Reiki Work?

Our aura is our energy field: this is where we take energy in from the outside world, and where we project our own energy out.  Our chakras are our energy centres: this is where we break down the energy from the outside world, and the energy inside us.  Our meridians are our energy pathways: this is how that energy gets distributed around our bodies.

Reiki works with our energy chakras, to help us break down the energy that we produce and absorb.  Some energy is there to serve our highest good; some of it is not serving us.

Reiki helps us draw in the type of energy that will serve us, and it lets us release the energy that isn’t serving us.

Energy blocks can lead to physical as well as emotional pain.  Holding on to negative energy can literally cause us to hurt.  Unblocking our chakras can help us to release blocked energy, blocked emotions, and pain.  So if you balance your energy on the inside, you’re more able to deal with the outside world.

What is a Reiki Session Like?

A reiki session is a relaxed and calming experience. There’s nothing you need to do other than lie down, get comfortable under a blanket, and allow me to direct reiki energy to you. Reiki energy is all around us, and we all have access to it. All I’m doing during a session is simply channelling that energy directly to you so your body can draw it in and use it however it is needed. A reiki treatment will help you to shift and clear stagnant energy, and make way for new, healing energy to flow in.

Each session brings a different experience, depending on what’s going on in your body and mind at that time. And there’s no need to worry about whether it will “work” for you; your body knows best and it draws the energy in to help you – no matter what your thinking mind may or may not believe about the process!

My reiki appointments are approximately 90 minutes, which allows time for the 1 hour treatment plus consultation and follow up. I have a beautiful space in Inverurie, Aberdeenshire, for treatments. I can also do home visits locally in Aberdeenshire by arrangement.

What is Distance Reiki?

If you’re open to the concept of energy healing, it’s not too much of a stretch to accept that reiki can be performed by distance.  Because energy transcends time and distance.  Intention and awareness is everything.  Think about times when you pick up on energy even though you are not face to face with someone or in real time: watching a movie, speaking on the phone, reading a message…

Distance reiki is a very relaxing and convenient treatment, since you don’t have to leave your own home.  You find yourself a quiet, comfortable place where you can lie down and not be disturbed, and I connect with you at that time and perform your healing.  It’s a truly amazing experience and the more I do it, the more it amazes me!

I’m a Level 2 qualified reiki practitioner, a member of The Reiki Association, and CHNC registered for reiki.

Not surprisingly given the nature of reiki healing, people tend to be drawn to practitioners they resonate with and get a good vibe from.  We are all unique, and we are all drawn to different people for many different reasons.  If you feel called to try a reiki session with me, I’m here and I’d be honoured to help you.

Your health

To be at our best, I believe we need to have everything aligned – our energy, our mindset, our goals and activities… and our health.

In fact, sometimes our health is the first thing we have to address before we can start to think about taking other actions to improve our life.

Which supplements should I take for optimum health? It’s a topic that can be quite confusing.

Health supplements are just that – supplements. They’re something we can add to our diet along with a healthy lifestyle, to help us optimise our health.

Control the Controllables

There are lots of uncontrollable factors in life that can impact our health. There are some things we simply cannot prevent.

However, so much of our health is within our own control and that’s what I love to share with people. It’s like a jigsaw puzzle; no single piece is the whole picture, we need all the separate parts together.

Your Health Questionnaire

Would like to know where your health is at right now? Get in touch and I’ll take you through a free lifestyle assessment questionnaire where you’ll receive a detailed analysis of the various health systems in your body.

What Can You Do For Your Health?

We can take charge of the following factors in relation to our health:

  • The quality of our diet
  • Nutritional supplements for preventative healthcare
  • How much exercise we do
  • How we manage stress
  • The amount of time we spend outdoors
  • Our general outlook on life and mindset
  • Our energy balance and flow
  • Who we spend time with
  • What we focus our energy on

I help people think about these factors and see where they can focus to help support their wellbeing.

In partnership with Synergy Worldwide, I consult and advise on health supplements that can also help support and improve your health and wellbeing.

Which supplements should I take for optimum health?

The answer to that depends on you. We are all unique.

The best place to start is to get in touch so you can tell me about your health and lifestyle and we can go through your lifestyle analysis questionnaire.

Having said that, there are two key areas I get asked about a lot!

Collagen. It’s one of the most frequent health supplements I’m asked about. Check out my page here for some information about collagen supplements.

Gut health. Gut health is another key topic when it comes to our health, as it impacts so much of our physical and mental wellbeing. I run regular gut health detox groups. This is a 3 week programme where I guide you through a clean eating regime, and you take scientifically proven gut health nourishing supplements to heal and feed the gut. Check out some of the reviews and information on my Facebook page or get in touch anytime to find out more about how your gut health could be impacting you.

Get In Touch

Contact me for a free consultation if you’d like to talk about your health, energy levels and wellbeing. I can offer a lifestyle analysis, where you’ll see the condition of the various health systems in your body and where you could potentially use some support. There’s no obligation, it’s simply a chat and a chance to see how your health and lifestyle look.
