Holy Fire ® III Karuna Reiki ®

 What is Reiki? Reiki translates as ‘Universal Life Force’ or ‘Breath of the Universe’ amongst others.

The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”.

Reiki is great for so many things, including (but not limited to):

  • Stress relief
  • Deep relaxation
  • General feeling of wellbeing
  • Balancing Chakra’s
  • Clearing energetic blockages
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Insomnia
  • Moving forward in life
  • Treating physical ailments
  • Releasing trauma
  • Supporting the grieving process

Holy Fire ® III Karuna Reiki ® is a form of hands on healing, whereby I channel universal energy through my hands into your body and the surrounding aura. It can sound a bit odd if you are not used to energy work, but it is deeply relaxing and helps shift energetic blocks and allows us to move forward in life.

 As a Grief Worker and End of Life Practitioner I have found Reiki to be particularly useful when dealing with bereavement as it is very supportive of the grieving process and allows the person to just ‘be in the moment’ without having to think about or feel anything in particular. Reiki gently supports you to process your feelings in your own time and way. Reiki is supportive for all types of grief, including relationship breakdown, loss of job, retirement, and various difficult life transitions. Sometimes we are not even really aware that what we are experiencing is grief, not all griefs are very apparent in our hectic lives.

A Reiki treatment with me is usually an hour long but can be longer or shorter depending on your needs. When you receive a treatment you are fully clothed and snuggled in blankets, you will usually feel warmth and relaxation emanating from my hands. Reiki works on various levels incorporating emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual aspects. 

I offer Reiki healing sessions both in-person at my Treatment Cabin, and also remotely via ‘phone or Zoom.

I am a fully qualified and insured Reiki Master/Teacher, I originally began walking my Reiki path in April 2006, and I completed my training as a Usui Reiki Master in May 2008 in the Usui Shiki Ryoho, the Usui System of Natural Healing with Beth Packer.

In January 2023 I completed further studies and additional development training in the Reiki Holy Fire ® III Karuna Reiki ® system with Jan Muse of Magical Muse Medicine Weaver. I strongly believe in continuing personal and professional development, and to maintaining my own personal practice, as well as treating others. I am continually evolving as a Reiki initiate, practitioner and master/teacher. Reiki is first and foremost a personal journey, and we must always take care of our own needs first.

Reiki is intelligent energy, it goes where it needs to go & does what it needs to do!
