Reiki Energy Healing

RGT Reiki Banner

The word “Reiki” comes from the Japanese words “rei” (meaning universal) and “ki” (meaning life energy).  

Reiki energy healing is a complementary therapy often referred to as palm healing or hands-on healing.

It involves channeling positive energy into another person’s energy field and removing any negative energy found.  Reiki can help clear energy blocks which can manifest as either pain, illness, or any emotion.  

What is Reiki?

And How can Reiki help?

Reiki Healing

Reiki energy healing helps with a variety of physical symptoms such as headaches, nausea, and joint pain.  It also helps with emotional issues, such as anxiety, stress, and depression.  By balancing emotions, reiki promotes calm and the ability to function better.

It can help release stress and anxiety and create feelings of relaxation and calm.  Reiki can improve sleep, resulting in improved mood, concentration, and well-being.

All living things are made up of energy.  When energy moves unrestricted around the body this enhances our feelings of harmony, balance, and wellbeing.  However, if we are injured or in emotional pain, this can stop energy from flowing freely around the body.  This can cause an energy block to form which consequently can lead to illness.  

Reiki can remove these energy blocks, thereby increasing the flow and bringing it back into balance.  

Positive energy is channeled into the body instinctively going to where it is needed the most. 

This energy replaces any negative energy, allowing the negative energy to be released from your body.

How does Reiki Work?

What happens in a session?

In a typical first session, we will talk about your medical history and discuss any concerns you may have. 

A Reiki energy healing session takes place with the receiver being fully clothed, either lying on a massage table or if preferred, sitting in a chair.

Firstly, I assess the energy field (or aura) and clear any obvious blocks or attachments.  Then, my hands will be placed either lightly on or over specific areas of the body, allowing the energy transfer to take place.  If a hands-off session is preferred that is absolutely fine and does not impact the effect.   

The session will be relaxing and certain sensations such as tingling, warmth, or coolness may be felt.  Similarly, nothing may be felt – it does not mean that Reiki is not working.  Sometimes the shifts that take place are so subtle that they are not immediately obvious.  What the session should not be is painful or uncomfortable.

After the session, feelings of dizziness or heightened emotion may be felt. This is normal and is a sign that things are shifting within.  

In addition, I would recommend drinking plenty of water after a session and avoiding caffeine or alcohol for the first 24 hours.

Distance Reiki

Pendulum Healing

As I have trained to Master Practitioner level,  I can connect with a person’s energy in the same way as if we were in the same room.  As a result, Reiki can also be provided over distance.   The treatment is just as effective and powerful. 

A distance session is a perfect option if you can’t or don’t want to travel or live too far away, and you can stay in your PJs if you want!

The session takes place in much the same way for both parties.

I would certainly recommend booking a time that enables you to be relaxed and undisturbed.  

All you then need to do is make yourself comfortable.  It is totally up to you if you want to play gentle music, burn some candles, or do whatever helps you relax.

However, please do not book the session if there is any possibility you will have to drive whilst it is taking place. 

What can Reiki help with?

Reiki Healing


Reiki energy healing can help with depression in many ways. It can help improve mood and restore a sense of balance both in mind and body.

Reiki can help combat the stress and anxiety that often accompanies depression. For example, reiki encourages relaxation, the feeling of being in control, and connection.

As Reiki has no contra-indication with any medication, it is, therefore, safe to have alongside any traditional therapy or drugs.

Reiki Healing

Anxiety and GAD

The overwhelm of anxiety and excessive worry about everyday issues can be difficult to control. For example, symptoms of Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) include trouble sleeping, irritability, restlessness, lack of concentration, and muscle tension.

An anxiety or GAD diagnosis will usually involve various different medications to help control symptoms. However, Reiki can support a person’s therapy without any contra-indication.

As an example, Reiki can help lower stress levels, make it easier to relax, and improve mood.  It can also increase the ability to get to sleep as well as have better quality sleep.

Reiki Energy Healing

Autoimmune Diseases

An autoimmune disease occurs when the immune system malfunctions and is, therefore, unable to tell the difference between foreign materials and the body’s own tissues.

When this occurs, the immune system can mistakenly attack the body’s own tissues.  By way of example,  autoimmune diseases include celiac disease, Type I diabetes, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, and rheumatoid arthritis.

However, Reiki energy healing can help alleviate sensations of pain and bring feelings of balance.  As a result, this allows someone to deal with their chronic illness better, experience less anxiety and depression, and experience a general reduction in symptoms.

There are two main types of arthritis, namely rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoarthritis.

Firstly, rheumatoid arthritis is a systemic disease developing between the ages of 20 and 40, and secondly, osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that develops in older people.

As a result of these conditions, patients can suffer from stiffness, inflammation, and joint pain, all of which worsen over time.

Receiving Reiki can reduce ongoing pain and improve quality of life.  Moreover, it can encourage an increased range of motion which can improve mood and alleviate feelings of depression.

Although Reiki is not a substitute for traditional cancer treatment, it may certainly provide a number of benefits for anyone dealing with a cancer diagnosis.

As a result of having had breast cancer myself twice, I have experienced first-hand the benefits of reiki.  Because of the nature of reiki, it is safe to have at any stage whether at diagnosis, during treatment, or throughout recovery.

Consequently, reiki can reduce and relieve the pain often experienced with cancer treatment.  For instance, reiki can alleviate stress and anxiety, enhance mood and quality of life.  This can therefore help improve quality of sleep which in turn helps the body’s ability to heal.

Other Conditions

Reiki energy healing can help many other conditions and provide relief for various symptoms.

It is amazing for general relaxation but can also help relieve chronic pain, traumatic stress, headaches, improve concentration, boost mood, and many others.

Whatever pain or condition you are experiencing, I have no about Reiki can help.
