Rachel is a fully qualified Reiki Master/Teacher trained in the ancient Japanese healing method. Reiki (pronounced “Ray-key”) is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy, an energy which is all around us.
Although Reiki Healing has been known and used for thousands of years, it is even now not fully understood. It has been studied scientifically and is capable of being measured, yet it does not conform to the generally accepted rules of physical science.
There is no belief system attached to Reiki so anyone can receive or learn to give a Reiki treatment – the only prerequisite is the desire to be healed.
Which conditions can Reiki help?
It is possible to heal at any level of being: physical, mental, emotional or spiritual.
Reiki can help when you feel emotionally out of balance, stressed/anxious, suffer with poor sleep and can help reduce the side effects of chemotherapy or radiation therapy and pre and post surgery to increase healing and recovery. In some cases such as terminal illness there can usually be great benefit and enhancement of the quality of life, giving a sense of peace and acceptance during the time remaining.
Reiki flows to the areas of need, soothing pain and supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Reiki restores balance in one’s life.
What happens during the session?
The method of receiving a Reiki treatment from Rachel is a very simple process. You simply lie down on a couch and relax. If you are unable to lie down the treatment can be given in a sitting position, the main thing is for you to be as comfortable as possible. There is no need to remove any clothing as Reiki will pass through anything.
Rachel acts as a channel or transformer for this energy and transmits it to you to stimulate your own natural healing resources. The approach is holistic in that it aims to ‘make whole’ at all levels of being and bring body, mind and spirit into a harmonious relationship. Causes are addressed rather than symptoms.
The healing energy is transmitted, sometimes in the form of a light touch, or with Rachel’s hands a short distance from your body. This will usually be experienced as a pleasant sensation and registered as a warm, tingling, pulsing or sometimes cooling energy. You may feel very little, although many people experience a sense of well-being and relaxation – some even fall asleep! Sometimes a treatment can be energising: there is no right or wrong way to experience Reiki.
Healing is a potentially powerful therapy which can be used on its own or in conjunction with other treatments, including orthodox medical treatments. No faith or particular belief is required. However, a positive attitude and expectation can increase receptivity to the healing energy.
How will I feel after the treatment?
Most people feel very relaxed and at peace after Reiki treatments, although Reiki can also stir up emotions as part of the healing process. You may feel tired, but sometimes full of energy. Some people also experience a healing reaction, such as headaches, cold or flu-like symptoms. These symptoms are normally of short duration.
Although no guarantees can ever be given, most clients experience some form of benefit from the treatment, often in ways they had not expected at the outset. A frequent benefit is the relaxation induced which allows stress to be gently released and sleeping patterns improved.
How much is a healing session and how long does it last?
Each treatment lasts approximately one hour (including consultation) and costs £45.00.
Some examples are:
- – Disturbed earth energies (geopathic stress)
- – Electromagnetic stress
- – Energy from traumatic past events (e.g. battles, suicides)
- – Disturbed spiritual energies
These problems can give rise to depression and negativity and can compromise health by undermining the immune system.
Rachel is used to helping clients with problems like this and has developed techniques to identify and deal with many of the energetic problems which relate to places. This work can normally be done without the necessity for a site visit since remote dowsing and healing techniques are used.
