Reiki is a Japanese word meaning: Rei (pronounced Ray) = universal wisdom/spiritual consciousness and Ki(pronounced key) = chi/life force energy

Background: Helen is trained in the Usui/Tibetan Reiki style and has been empowered with both the Western and Japanese style attunements with lineages traceable back to the founder, Mikao Usui. She has been an Advanced/Master and Teacher/Trainer since September 2013.    

Reiki (ray-key) is Japanese for ‘universal life energy’, a term used to describe a natural system to help bring about an improved sense of wellbeing and a positive feeling of spiritual renewal. This tradition was founded by Dr Mikao Usui in the early 20th century and evolved as a result of his research, experience and dedication. It is a tradition that is open to any belief system and benefits may include deep relaxation and the promotion of a calm peaceful sense of wellbeing.

The method of receiving a Reiki treatment from a practitioner is simple. The recipient remains clothed and comfortably lies on a couch or sits on a chair. The practitioner gently places their hands non-intrusively, on or near the body using their intuition and training as a guide. There is no massage or manipulation. Reiki can be used on the person as a whole, or on specific parts of the body. It is also possible to receive Reiki at a distance.

Reiki is taught by Reiki Master/Teachers, who have trained in the tradition passed on, in person, from Master to student. Students go through a process of initiation/attunement to the Reiki energy. They are then able to treat themselves and others, not only from a personal and emotional perspective, but also as an aid to individual development and spiritual growth.

Helen combines her Reiki with Health Kinesiology and muscle tests to see if the client would benefit from using a crystal, essential oil, essence or some other tool. This ensures that every session provides a unique and special experience for the client, tailor made to suit their needs.

Helen is a therapist who is really comfortable in what she does and has a sixth sense about just what you need when you go to see her. I found her Reiki sessions relaxing and restorative. Helen has always got time for her clients and can never do enough to help – she has a genuine interest in helping people and I would highly recommend her whether you are seeking Reiki to help with a specific issue or even if you don’t know what your issue is. That is the beauty of it – it subtly helps on levels that you aren’t even aware of, just like Helen!            Helen B, Hailey

Training: Helen first started training in 2011 knowing that she wanted to help Concentration Camp & Civil War victims in Sarajevo working as a volunteer with the Healing Hands Network charity. Little did she realise at the time how powerful and wonderful Reiki was and that it would be used so often back home too.

Helen is a member of the UK Reiki Federation and registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and abides by their high standards and code of ethics, so client’s can be reassured that they are in good hands, (pun intended)!

Sessions cost £40 and last approx 1 hour. Sessions are done fully clothed with the client either lying on the couch or sitting in a chair.
