What is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a gentle but powerful healing modality which originated in Japan. It is useful for body, mind and spirit and is suitable for the shyest of clients as no clothes need to be removed other than your shoes or boots.
It works on the principle that we all have within us life force energy and when this flows freely we feel well and when it gets blocked or stagnated we suffer pain or feel ill. Reiki aims to help keep the life force energy or ‘chi’ flowing easily.
Reiki can be sent to the past to help heal the way we respond and feel about things that have already happened and can be sent to the future. Whilst it cannot change anything that has happened nor make anything happen the way we would like it to happen, it can help to heal the way we feel about it. Reiki always aims to work for your highest good.
If you have had a traumatic relationship or an unhappy childhood we can send reiki to that time to help it heal.
Reiki is safe and suitable for just about everyone and can also be sent to animals, plants, people, countries, groups etc.

What happens during a Reiki Treatment?
After the consultation I’ll ask you to take your shoes/boots off and to lie down on the couch. I’ll tuck you up under a blanket if you would like (it’s optional, some people like it for the comfort and warmth) I’ll then connect with the reiki energy and place my hands on or over your shoulders. I will then work my way down the body holding my hands over or on set postitions (Usually shoulders, head, over throat and heart chakras, then holding on arms, legs, knees, finishing with the feet)
Once I have finished I will give a little ding to my tingsha bells (or my singing bowl) or give your feet a gentle squeeze. Once I’m done you can relax for a few minutes whilst you ‘come back into the room’ and then you can have a glass of water.
I’ll then advise you to take some time for yourself for the rest of the day and to drink plenty of water along with the other aftercare advice) Reiki usually feels deeply relaxing and you might fall asleep. During the treatment you will probably feel warmth or heat coming from my hands, this is very normal.
It can feel a bit like that warm feeling you get when you put your hand on your knee when you’ve grazed it. (In a good way!)
Reiki Home Visits in the Boroughbridge and Ripon Area
Are you living in the Boroughbridge or Ripon area? If so did you know that I offer Reiki treatments in the comfort of your own home in the Boroughbridge and Ripon area?

Appointments at times to suit you including evenings and occasional weekends
As my diary is fairly flexible I can offer some evening and weekend appointments as well as daytime slots. If you have an evening appointment I am happy for you to wear your pj’s so you can float off to bed once I’ve gone!
Sit back and relax
Me coming to you save you time and hassle as you’re not having to drive to a salon, find somewhere to park, find 50p for the meter, battle with the weather etc. I will do all that for you so all you need to do is sit back and relax.
What to wear for your treatment
Please wear something loose fitting and comfortable for your treatment. You will not be removing any clothing, just your shoes or boots.
Creating a cosy environment
I will bring with me my couch, a towel and some blankets. Please let me know if you’d prefer to use your own! Please may I borrow a dining room type chair to sit on? (or a foot stool or I could perch on the sofa)
Feel free to make the environment of the room we’re going to use cosy in whatever way makes sense for you. If you like you can light a candle, or put on a soft lamp or maybe play some relaxing music in the background. This is your time, so I encourage you to switch your mobile onto silent and to ensure you won’t be disturbed during the treatment. (If you have small children or have caring responsibilities and you need to be contacted then it’s fine to leave it on loud!)
