Reiki has been around for thousands of years. Its current form was first developed in 1922 by a Japanese Buddhist called Mikao Usui, who reportedly taught 2,000 people the Reiki method during his lifetime. The practice spread to the U.S. through Hawaii in the 1940s, and then to Canada and Europe in the 1980s.
The word "Reiki" means "mysterious atmosphere, miraculous sign." It comes from the Japanese words "rei" (universal) and "ki" (life energy). Reiki is a type of energy healing and is often referred to as palm healing or hands-on healing and it targets the energy fields around the body.
A persons energy field that surrounds their body can become stagnate when there has been physical injury or possibly emotional pain leading to energy blockages in the body. In time, these energy blocks can lead to illness and Reiki helps to remove blockages and restore the bodies flow of energy in much the way as how acupuncture or acupressure works.

The number of sessions will vary, depending on what a client wishes to accomplish. Some clients prefer to have one session while others have a series of sessions to work on a particular issue.
During your Reiki session you will lie on a massage table fully clothed. The setting is very peaceful with soft Reiki music playing in the background. Reiki involves the practitioner placing their hands lightly on or over specific areas of the head, limbs and torso using different hand positions, each position between 2 and 5 minutes. The hands are placed over 20 different areas of the body. The transfer of Reiki energy takes place while the practitioner holds their hands lightly on or over the body. During this time, you may feel warmth and tingling coming from the practitioners hands. Each hand position is held until the practitioner senses that the energy is flowing smoothly. If there is a particular injury, such as a burn, the hands can be held just above the wound.
Please drink plenty of water to hydrate your body as your body’s energy system may be moving at a more optimum rate, so please care for yourself with water and healthy food during the day. It is beneficial to spend some quiet time that day or evening after your session to journal or to contemplate as you may have some insights and further mental clarity as your body continues to process the Reiki session.
I sought out Reiki whilst looking for an alternative to reduce the prescription medicine I was taking for anxiety and depression. Being naturally sceptical I decided however to approach Reiki with an open mind, and am very pleased with the results so far. The Reiki sessions are extremely relaxing and the severity and duration of the depressive episodes has reduced dramatically. Also I am able to deal with challenges at work with much more confidence and reduced anxiety.
Reiki changed my state of spirit significantly. It helped me clear my thoughts, calmed me down and improved my wellbeing. The most important effect it had was on my emotions. After six sessions of reiki healing I feel much more relaxed, more tolerant, more loving and it’s a lot easier to cope with the day-to-day stress.
I feel very much in peace with myself.
I have been having regular Reiki sessions with Sharon since being diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2010. I can genuinely say that Reiki has really helped me, both physically and emotionally, to get through this very challenging time. Following two operations and 20 sessions of radiotherapy, I expected to feel extremely tired and run down, and I am convinced that the regular Reiki sessions have helped me to keep up my energy levels, and helped me remain positive throughout the ordeal! I am now back at work, pretty much back to “normal” and feel very well!
After reading about Reiki over many months I decided to give it a go! Each session I have had has been different, it is extremely relaxing and has given me a calm peace within. I feel my sleep pattern and persistent headaches have improved greatly.Sharon is a very caring person who is very passionate about what she does. I have no hesitation in recommending her services. I think people should experience Reiki and feel the benefits of this truly healing service!
