I am a practitioner of Usui Reiki and Angelic Reiki healing and I also teach both types of reiki to individuals who wish to become practitioners in these beautiful healing modalities.
I work from a private reiki room in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. To book a session, please contact me on my contact page.
Details of my Usui Reiki Level 1 and 2 training courses in the UK are advertised on this page and locally.
Details of my Angelic Reiki Level 1 and 2 training courses are advertised via the Angelic Reiki Association, of which I am a member. These take place within the UK and also internationally.
✨ What is Reiki and how does it work?
Reiki practitioners act as a conduit between you and the source of universal life force energy. The energy flows through the practitioner’s hands to you.
“The patient determines the energy flow from the practitioner’s hands by taking only what they need,” Bodner says. “This helps the patient know that we are supporting them only in what they need rather than what we think they need. This makes it the perfect balance to meet the patient’s needs.”
✨ The health benefits of Reiki
Reiki promotes relaxation, stress reduction and symptom relief to improve overall health and well-being. It can:
- Bring on a meditative state.
- Foster tissue and bone healing after injury or surgery.
- Stimulate your body’s immune system.
- Promote natural self-healing.
- Relieve pain and tension.
- Support the well-being of people receiving traditional medical treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and kidney dialysis.
✨ Can Reiki replace traditional treatments?
Reiki treatment should not be used as a substitute for the consultation of a physician or a psychotherapist. Reiki is a complement to other types of medical and therapeutic treatments, and it can increase the effectiveness of other types of healing.
If you’re already in general good health, regular reiki treatments can enhance your ability to respond to stress and serve as a form of preventive medicine.
✨ What happens during a Reiki session?
Usui Reiki treatments typically last about 45 minutes. During a session, you’ll lie on a bed fully clothed, as your practitioner gently places their hands, palms down, on or just above your body in specific energy locations. They use a series of 12 to 15 different hand positions.
Angelic Reiki treatments usually last 20-30 minutes. With this form of Reiki the practitioner uses 2 main hand positions.
The amount of time that the practitioner leaves their hands in a certain location is determined by the flow of energy through their hands. There is no pressure, massage or manipulation involved in a Reiki treatment.
✨ What does Reiki feel like?
The majority of people feel very relaxed and peaceful during a Reiki treatment, and some even fall asleep. A Reiki treatment may create feelings of peace, relaxation, security and overall wellness.
Reiki works on the entire self – the mind, body and emotions. It isn’t specific to any particular type of disease or condition but may help people with:
- heart disease
- chronic pain
- stress-related illnesses
- digestive problems
- neurodegenerative disorders
- Crohn’s disease
- fatigue syndromes
- autoimmune diseases
- Parkinson’s disease
Reiki can also help you prepare for surgery, which may help boost your recovery afterwards.
“I was incredibly sceptical about what reiki actually did. The first sessions felt more like a relaxing nap than anything special, but then I got a pain in my hip. It hurt every time I walked to the point the doctor had referred me for physio. I’d mentioned it to Claire in passing and she said she would do some reiki for me. Literally, after the session, walking down the stairs, the pain was gone. I was still sceptical, thinking it would come back the next day. But it never did! I turned down the physio appointment when it arrived as the pain had fully gone.
A few weeks later, I had a pain in my shoulder and back owing to a fall. Rest and pain killers weren’t helping it. I asked Claire to work her magic again, honestly not expecting miracles. But no! It worked again. My back and shoulder pain are gone! Claire has healing hands and I would highly recommend her.”
“I noticed an enormous sense of well-being after my reiki session. I had a question which I had asked earlier in the day answered directly during my session. I honestly can’t believe the angels answered my question the very same day!”
