Q1. What is Reiki?

Reiki is pronounced ‘ray key’ and is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy. Someone who is attuned to Reiki transfers healing energy to the receiver, which can be a person or animal, to help the receiver to self-heal.

<p”> Q2. Is Reiki a religion?

No, not at all. Reiki will work just as effectively no matter whether you have a faith or not.Reiki is not linked to any religion

Q3. Do I have to believe in Reiki for it to work?

No, you neither have to believe in Reiki or understand how it works to benefit. However, the receiver does have to want to helped. It may seem strange but some people don’t actually want to be rid of their illness! If this is the case then the Reiki won’t work.

Q4. Where does Reiki come from?

There is energy all around us and energy runs through all living things. Everyday we use up energy in everything we do, walking, eating and drinking, and even getting out of bed. The pressures of life can cause our own energy levels to be depleted and we can become ill. The energy that surrounds all of us, is channelled through the Reiki giver (someone attuned to Reiki) and then sent to the receiver in a powerful and concentrated way.

Q5. What is Reiki Distance Healing?

Reiki is often known as a form of hands-on treatment with the practitioner laying hands over the receiver’s body. For a full body treatment, each hand position is held for a few minutes before ‘moving on’ to a new position. However, Reiki knows no barriers or boundaries. Someone who has been attuned to Level 2 can channel Reiki energies to anyone, or anything simultaneously across the world.

Reiki Distance Healing can be just as effective as hands-on treatments, often with instant benefits.

Q6. Do you send Reiki or do Attunements over the Internet?

No, the Internet is used merely as a means for me to make contact with you. I personally and manually send Reiki to the receiver or Distance Attunements by mental messages, through thought transference, a bit like telepathy. Unlike with some you receiver my personal attention.

Q7. How can you treat me or attune me to Reiki when we haven’t met?

I do not need to know you personally or have ever met you in order to send Reiki to you or to attune you to Reiki. I do, however, need to know certain basic information about the person, animal or ‘event’ that I am to direct Reiki to, and that is sufficient for Reiki to work. Reiki has a sort of sixth sense and knows where it is needed most.

For Distance Attunements on my Home Study Courses I will need a head and shoulder photograph of you and our postal address

Q8. Is Reiki distance healing expensive?

Sessions are very cost effective. Reiki Distance Healing sessions are held every day throughout the year.

Each single session is only £15 GBP.

However, It is much cheaper to book more than one session at a time. Working on a sliding scale if you book 8 or more sessions at a time, each session only costs £8

You can combine sessions for more than one person or animal at a time to reduce the cost per session.

You pay in your own currency.

Q9.Can I book more than one session at a time?

Absolutely. You have the option of booking just one single session, or multiple numbers of sessions as you desire. Sessions will start the day after you place your order and continue on consecutive days for the number of sessions you have booked.

Sessions will cease once your current subscription has expired, but will start again if you choose to re-subscribe, which you may do any time you wish.

Q10. Can I only book Reiki Distance Healing for myself?

No. Reiki Distance Healing sessions are divided into three distinct areas – Reiki Distance Healing for People, Reiki Distance Healing for Pets and Reiki Distance Healing for Events.

You may book sessions for yourself or other people, your own pets/animals or pets/animals belonging to others. You can help past or future events relating to you or other people. You can book any combination of sessions to suit.

The booking pages are simple to use and explain in more detail. Book a session. [retain this hyperlink as existing – make it purple]

Q11. Are my details kept confidential?

Clients details are totally confidential. I will never sell or pass on your name, e-mail address or medical details to any other organisation. All amounts are made via PayPal’s secure site, so your financial details are safe too.

I do encourage feedback and if you are one of my students I always enjoy reading of your successes. I may use extracts on my website and other materials but this is only with your permission and I never include full names or email addresses.

Q12.What actually happens during a Reiki Distance Healing session?

Reiki Distance Healing sessions are held everyday throughout the week. Those people who have subscribed for the particular session will be sent Reiki on this day. Simultaneously I will send Reiki on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. So if your problem is stress related, Reiki Distance Healing will be channelled towards easing your stress. Your body will absorb as much or as little Reiki as you need at that particular time.

I produce a list of those due to receive Reiki. This list gives me the basic information regarding the recipient. Using the Reiki symbols and mantras transferred to me by my Reiki Teacher I focus on this list and prepare to send Reiki. My Reiki Distance Healing sessions take on the style of a hands-on treatment so that all areas of the receiver’s body receive Reiki energy.

Throughout the session I relax and focus on the Reiki energies transferring from me to the receiver. During each Reiki Distance Healing session my hands get hotter and hotter as there is a build up of energy. My palms pulsate as I feel the energy pumping. It is a great feeling, as I know that the Reiki is working.

Q13. Will I feel anything during a Reiki Distance Healing Session?

There are no set rules – each person reacts differently to the next and each treatment may differ from the previous.

On some occasions you may sense that parts of your body feel warm, even hot, (sometimes very hot!): Reiki is penetrating and helping this part of your body.

Sometimes parts of your body might feel cold instead. If you are suffering from an inflammation this can be Reiki’s way of cooling you down. You may feel some slight tingling.

However, don’t be alarmed if you feel absolutely nothing – this does not mean that Reiki isn’t being received by you or that in some way you have failed. The healing energy is always received.

Q14. How do I prepare to receive Reiki Distance Healing?

One of the real benefits of receiving Reiki Distance Healing is that you have no need to stop what you are doing; you don’t have to take time away from work, drive anywhere or wait in a queue. You just carry on as normal in the knowledge that Reiki energies will be sent.

Q15. Are there any after affects?

Reiki is a perfectly safe, non-invasive and gentle healing method. However, because Reiki helps to remove toxins from the body you may experience what is sometimes known as the ‘healing crisis’ as your body starts to detoxify This could be a mild cases of sickness, headache, slight nausea or light headiness. You may feel a little dehydrated so drink plenty of water. These feelings will be short-lived so don’t worry if you experience any of them. However, take care if you are driving or using machinery or equipment.

Q16. Do I need to tell my doctor or vet that I am receiving Reiki?

Reiki complements all types of medical treatments. Although there is no obligation for you to inform your doctor or vet that you are receiving Reiki you should continue with your medical treatment as prescribed, until advised differently by your doctor or vet. It is my strong suggestion that suitably qualified doctors or vets are consulted for a diagnosis.

Q17. Can I ‘overdose’ on or become addicted to Reiki?

No. Your body will only absorb as much Reiki as it needs. You cannot ‘overdose’ on Reiki or become addicted. You will be perfectly able to stop receiving Reiki treatments whenever you choose to.

There is no evidence to suggest that you can have too much Reiki.

Q18. What guarantees are there that Reiki will work for me?

There are no absolute guarantees that Reiki will work for you, which is no different to traditional medical treatment really.

However, Reiki is known to have aided virtually every known illness and injuries including serious problems as well as broken bones, cuts, headaches, colds, insomnia, lack of energy, impotence and a whole host of other ailments. Whatever your illness or problem Reiki is highly likely to aid and complement all other types of treatments that you are receiving.

The beauty of Reiki is that it is gentle, non invasive, non addictive and has no harmful / long term side affects. Above all else it is really effective and you may feel wonderful after a session – There is a real sense of well being for both giver (me) and receiver (you or a loved one).

Q19. Do you have to be ill to benefit from Reiki?

No. Many people take a proactive approach to their health and enjoy regular Reiki sessions to help keep their body, mind and spirit in harmony.

Reiki helps you to revitalize, renew and maintain your energy levels. Use Reiki as a part of your regular healthcare programme. If you have been attuned to Reiki you can easily give yourself Reiki whenever you want to

Q20. What does it feel like to have Hands on Reiki?

Reiki is well known as a very calming and relaxing therapy. In most cases I will gently place my hands on different parts of the body, and hold my hands in that position for possibly 3 minutes, before moving my hands to a different position. Normally my hands get quite hot and a feeling of relaxing warmth, and in some hand positions quite a heat is felt by the receiver. It is not uncommon for the person, or animal receiving the Reiki to fall asleep.

When a receiver of Reiki has an inflammation it is possible they will feel a coolness, rather than a warmth. This is the body’s way of ‘cooling down’.

Q21. What do I have to do to prepare for Distance Attunements on a Home Study Course?

There is actually no need for you to do anything. You could be at work or asleep if you wish. However, I believe that it is important for you to fully enjoy the Attunements and so I always agree a time with you so that you are able to sit quietly for 30 minutes to ‘enjoy the moment’. My students tell me they find this a very relaxing and enjoyable experience.

Q22. How soon after Distance Attunements on a Home Study course can I start giving Reiki?

Straight away. Once the attunements are complete you will have the ability to give Reiki to yourself, other people and to animals. So, if you wish you can start straight away using my manual as your guide. The key to your success is practise so the sooner you start the better.

Q23.I want to offer Reiki treatments on a commercial basis. What do I do?

In the UK it is generally expected that you will be qualified to both Level one and Level two Reiki in order to become a Practitioner. This might be the same in your own country. Presumably you will want to take out liability insurance, and in some countries this might be a legal requirement. I recommend that you do take out insurance even if it’s not mandatory. Distance attunements are very effective but most insurance companies will ask that you have received face to face Reiki attunements.

Q24. If I have further questions, where can I get the answers?

I am hoping that I have answered all of your questions but if not feel free to e-mail me your questions. I will try to answer you as quickly as I possibly can.
