Reiki treatments and attunement courses in London SE24, other locations, and on the French Riviera.

Worn out, out of balance, need a lift?  Maybe you'd like to lift your spirits, connect with your inner self, stop a debilitating habit, think more positively, or just want to feel better?  Reiki treatments could be a fast track to connecting with your true wondrous self!

Reiki is  a lovely energy, a very high vibration of energy, strong, kind, calm yet invigorating. 

Reiki supports  your whole being  -  

physical, mental, emotional, spiritual. 

Not based on any belief, faith or suggestion, scientific research using quantum physics is starting to help us to understand how Reiki may work to benefit the individual. One day it may be known simply as energy medicine based on scientifically measurable energy emitted from the healer's hands.  It does not require a meditative state, incantation spoken, or anything other than intention and a cupped Reiki hand to work its magic. 

Reiki is good for your inner smile!  

Many people consider Reiki the simplest, purest, most solid and robust healing system on the planet: because Reiki can be used alone or in conjunction with other healing vibrations without those other vibrations changing or altering the purity of Reiki, or Reiki altering them. In this capacity there is no equal.  Using Reiki alongside other healing methods has been shown to consistently benefit and further support the person receiving healing.  

Our natural state is Love, Joy and Peace, yet our minds sometimes affect our emotions which in turn create pain in our bodies and stress in the head.  My work is to promote Love, Joy and Peace within, despite what's happening in our heads, bodies or the outside environment.

I have been practicing Reiki since 2003 and became a Reiki Master and Teacher in 2016, and am a member of the UK Reiki Federation and CNHC (Complementary Natural Healthcare Council, of England). 

Reiki literally translates from Japanese as Universal life force energy.  This system of healing was developed by Dr Mikao Usui in the early 20th century in a form that we can easily use, although Eastern medicine has for thousands of years worked with this energy, recognising its flow through all living things.  It has been taught and used in Europe since the late 1900s, Scroll down page to read about the  Science of Reiki.

What to expect from a Reiki treatment

Reiki is given fully clothed, usually with shoes off, best in a calm environment.. You can lie on a massage bench or the earth, sit or even stand for a Reiki "shower".  You might feel deep calm, coolness or heat in certain areas, inner peace, self-love, forgiveness, empathy, groundedness, connected to source energy and all that is; pain might vanish, creativity and imagination unleashed, your mind might sort out thoughts at superfast speeds and then clear itself of thoughts...  all this and more has been reported by people who who have had Reiki.    

You can visit me in south London at my private practice near Dulwich Village or therapy rooms, at your home/workplace, in a park, or on the French Riviera at our beautiful ancient farmhouse -, you can feel a deeper sense of wellbeing.  

Reiki is safe for adults, children, babies and pets, anywhere.

Reiki always works for a person's highest good - whatever that may be. Just one treatment can work wonders; regular reiki works more wonders and keeps you in touch with your true wonderful self.  Book 3 reiki sessions, see how you feel with this high energy, and have top-up treatments as often as you wish. You can also become attuned at my reiki Courses so you can give reiki to yourself and family.

My mother's knee had swollen to twice the size of her other knee, and she was in pain. I gave her a Reiki treatment before bedtime; the next day she complained that she'd been to the loo a lot during the night... that was the water draining from her knee! 2 days later, I gave her 15 minutes Reiki and she later texted: "My knee feels good, even last night." The following day, she texted: "My knee has dimples instead of a big bulbous knee!!! Not much pain and am not taking paracetemol. Thanks again for the Reiki and I hope you can do it long-distance." Yes, Mum, distance Reiki is also possible.

Before her Reiki treatment, a lady told me that she was feeling overly emotional, tearful, sensitive, insecure, confused, stressed and slightly unsettled, tired, achey, with knee and hip pain. After the Reiki: "Feel much more relaxed, was actually able to empty my mind and drift a little, which doesn't happen often! Feel like I could sleep well (or better) tonight... feel quite tired!" Rest assured that reiki energy keeps on working for some time after a treatment.
"Thank you for getting rid of my unsightly ganglion on my wrist.  After over 10 years of hiding it with long sleeves, pressing it and bashing it with a book, your Reiki got rid of it forever after only one treatment. No need for the surgery the hospital offered, thank goodness. The ganglion's gone and my wrist is normal like the other one - and has been so for a few years now.  Thank-you, Kathy!"

At a Pamper Party, I gave 20-minute Reiki treatments in a quiet room.
"Most relaxed I've felt in 2 months.", "I saw lots of clouds, very wispy ones."    They also drank less alcohol at the party!  Mellowing effects all round!

The Science of Reiki

Reiki as defined by the Oxford English dictionary is: "A healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being."  However, it is widely accepted that reiki can be given and received equally effectively hands-off or via distant healing - which means that I could send you reiki wherever you are on earth, at a time to suit you. 

REIKI in Japanese literally translates as universal life force energy.  This system of healing was developed and named Usui Reiki Ryoho in Japan, commonly combined as Reiho, by Dr Mikau Usui in the early 20th century.  It is a non-invasive complementary therapy that has been taught and used in the UK since the late 1900s, although Eastern medicine has worked with this energy for thousands of years, recognising its flow through all living things.  

Reiki supports orthodox medicine; reiki can be used alone but is not a replacement for traditional medication of treatments.  It is not based on any belief, faith or suggestion, yet scientiific research using quantum physics has started to help us understand how reiki may work to benefit the individual.  Perhaps in years to come reiki will be known as energy medicine based on scientifically measurable energy emitted from the healer's hands.

Research is producing very interesting results:

  • When giving reiki, practitioners have been shown to emit electro-magnetic or bio-magnetic energy from their hands.  The frequencies of the energy emitted vary from one moment to the next; many appear to correspond to those that medical researchers have identified as being the optimum frequencies for stimulating the healing process in tissues, bones and other body parts so far investigated.
  • The bio-magnetic energy, or field, flowing from a practitioner's hands has been shown to induce current flows in the tissues and cells of individuals who are in close proximity but this pulsing energy is not produced by non-practitioners of energy healing techniques.

Two ways in which these pulsing magnetic fields may stimulate repair of bone and other tissues include:

  • A cascade of reactions from the cell surface to the cytoplasm and on to the nucleus and genes where selective effects on the DNA have been documented.
  • Amplification, in which a single hormone molecule, neurotransmitter of photon of electromagnetic energy has been shown to trigger cellular responses; very tiny fields have been shown to produce the best effects, suggesting that living tissues are much more sensitive to external fields than previously considered possible.

Note: a bio-magnetic field can also be created by passing electric currents through living tissue as has been used for medical diagnoses and treatments for almost a century, eg. ECG and MRI scanning.

Reiki is often referred to as an intelligent form of healing.  Reiki may be valuable in the prevention and remission of some serious diseases that are so costly in terms of human suffering as well as expensive allopathic health care.

One theory is that energy healing works by opening up the communication channels that enable cells in the body to talk to each other, and  opening up the terrain through which cells are able to migrate to places where they are needed to initiate repair or fight disease.  Another is that these methods help to calm the person so their immune functions can operate smoothly.

Reiki is activated by intention and requires practitioners to calm their minds and thus open up their communication channels to understand where healing is most required on a body, and for how long, to care and help the person concerned.  

Visualisation techniques can also be embodied as an element of reiki treatments at a professional practising level, which also create measurable electrical and magnetic fields, enhancing its effectiveness.  As an NLP Practitioner for many years, you can additionally have specific meditations and visualisations to help you imagine your wishes and outcomes more precisely and clearly for better results; and forward-focussed coaching to aid your progress.

"Very good. Body feels energised; can feel my heart, feel warm, full."  (Man, felt a bit run down, physically weak, depressed.)
 I gave 10-minute Reiki treatments at Lambeth Country Fair (Brixton Therapy Stand).  A man returned 4 hours later to say, "It was better than Class A drugs" (he then told me that he was on methodone as a result of heroin addiction).  Could this be my best Testimonial yet?!


"Just for today..."

Just for today I release all worry.

Just for today I release all anger.

Just for today I honour my parents, teachers and elders.

Just for today I shall do my work with integrity.

Just for today I show gratitude to every living thing.

" I first met Kathy at her Zumba classes and was immediately struck by her smile. It made me think I want what she’s got!! I decided then to embark on some one to one sessions as I felt I needed some extra support in order to tackle some ongoing issues. My work is stressful and there are times when I find myself 'running on empty'; through Reiki, its been amazingly therapeutic, helping me to think more clearly. Sometimes we’ve spent sessions on planning and implementing strategies for helping me order my life, as there are occasions when I can be overwhelmed. I can always tell when I’ve just had a session as my approach is calmer and more productive. Perhaps the most surprising thing is that coming from a scientific background I was initially fairly sceptical. However I can highly recommend Kathy to anyone who wants a tailor-made programme to support them at different times.Thank you, Kathy. Yours, Olivia. "
