Reiki Therapy in Northamptonshire
Reiki is a Japanese energy healing technique. The predominate form of Reiki practiced throughout the world today, also known as Usui reiki, was created by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 20th century.
It’s a complementary or alternative health approach. Reiki does not directly cure diseases or illnesses. Instead, it’s used as a way to manage symptoms and improve general well-being.
During the pandemic, when strict lockdown or high level Tiers are in place, I will not be able to carry out Reiki Treatments as they can not be classed as essential or medical. Please still get in touch and I will arrange something with you as soon as we are able to.
During a Reiki session, your practitioner places their hands either directly on you or just above the 7 main Chakras bringing about healing. The belief is that the practitioner is able to stimulate your body’s natural healing abilities.
Chakras are a way of describing the flow of subtle energy and are often said to be related to an endocrine gland, which the Chakra is thought to influence.
With stress, the Chakras can lose their ability to synchronise with each other and become unbalanced.
If negative energy becomes stored in a Chakra, it can accumulate, and the function of the Chakra becomes impaired.
Ultimately this can lead to energy blocks where the Chakra virtually ceases to function and creates an imbalance as the other Chakras attempt to compensate for the blocked centre, creating additional strain for the energy system.

Reiki is not intended to replace any doctor-approved treatment plan.
1. Promotes Harmony & Balance
Reiki helps to promote harmony and balance. It is an effective, non invasive energy healing modality that enhances the body’s natural healing ability whilst energising and promoting overall wellness. Reiki works directly on restoring balance on all levels and works directly on the problem and condition instead of just masking or relieving symptoms.
When we chat about balance, we mean mental and emotional balance, left and right brain, masculine and feminine, labelling things as good or bad, positive or negative etc.
2. Creates deep relaxation and helps the body release stress and tension
What many people enjoy about a reiki treatment is it allows them time to themselves where they aren’t ‘doing’ but just ‘being’. Clients have reported feeling more clear, peaceful, relaxed and lighter in themselves.
Reiki provides a space where you can be more aware of what is going on inside your body and mind. To learn to listen to your own body and make wise decisions regarding your well-being from this place. Being more present means you are in your body, which helps you to access even more that inner knowing and wisdom that we all have!
3. Dissolves energy blocks and promotes natural balance between mind, body and spirit
Regular Reiki treatments can bring about a calmer and more peaceful state of being, in which a person is better able to cope with everyday stress. This mental balance also enhances learning, memory and mental clarity.
Reiki can heal mental/emotional wounds and can help alleviate mood swings, fear, frustration and even anger. Reiki can also strengthen and heal personal relationships.
Because Reiki enhances your capability to love, it can open you up to the people around you and help your relationships grow.
4. Assists the body in cleansing itself from toxins and supports the immune system
We spend so much time in stress-reactive fight/flight phase that it becomes our ‘norm’ and our bodies literally forget how to return to balance.
Reiki reminds our bodies how to shift into parasympathetic nervous system (rest / digest) self-healing mode.
Rest/digest doesn’t mean you have to stop being active and productive or ‘do nothing’. It allows you to sleep better and digest better which is important to maintaining health and vitality. The more you are in this space, the more you can be active and productive without being stressed, exhausted or burnt-out.
5. Clears the mind and improves focus as you feel grounded & centred
Reiki can support you in staying centred in the present moment rather than getting caught up in regrets about the past or anxieties about the future. It can strengthen your ability to accept and work with the way events are unfolding even when they don’t follow your desires or timetable. You begin to react to situations, people and yourself in a supportive way rather than acting out of habit.
6. Aids better sleep
The number one outcome of receiving a Reiki session is relaxation. When we’re relaxed, we sleep better, our bodies heal better, we think more clearly, and we relate to each other more genuinely. Often clients will experience deep relaxation during their Reiki session and sometimes a deep sleep during the session as well.
7. Accelerates the body’s self-healing ability as you start to return to your natural state
Reiki healing quickly returns you to your natural state, or at least gets your body moving in the right direction.
That means your breathing, heart rate and blood pressure improve. Breathing deeper and easier is one of the first things to happen during a self-practice or treatment received from someone else. When we breath better, our minds naturally settle. Science supports that.
As your respiration deepens your body moves into parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) dominance i.e. the rest/digest phase. Your body was made to function primarily in the rest/digest phase rather than the more commonly experienced fight/flight phase.
8. Helps relieve pain and supports the physical body healing
On the outside looking in, a Reiki treatment might appear to be merely a sequence of hand placements, it works to restore balance on the deepest possible level. It encourages your system to improve your body’s vital functions (breathing, digesting and sleeping) so your physical systems function optimally.
On the physical level, Reiki helps to relieve pain from migraine, arthritis, sciatica ~ just to name a few. It also helps with symptoms of asthma, chronic fatigue, menopausal symptoms, and insomnia.
9. Helps spiritual growth and emotional cleansing
You do not need to be into spirituality to enjoy the benefits of reiki. Yet, for many they receive reiki treatments to support themselves through their self-healing journey i.e. spiritual growth / personal development.
Reiki addresses the whole person, rather than targeting individual symptoms. It can create profound, often subtle shifts from deep within your own being. What does that look like? Guidance about what to do around difficult situations can come more easily. Or it may inspire a change in attitude or belief about your situation. Suddenly, you see your condition from a fresh perspective and are able to deal with it in a more positive way. Or it might direct you to the right kind of action needed which is guided from within.
10. Compliments medical treatment & other therapies
Reiki is a wonderful compliment to conventional medicine and helps relax patients on the levels of the mind and physical body. When a patient is relaxed the healing, process is accelerated. People sleep much better and are calmer following Reiki treatments.
The beauty of Reiki is that it is non-invasive and is administered in a very gentle manner. The Reiki practitioner can give Reiki without touching the body in cases where patients have burns or major injuries.
Reiki is safe to use if you have medical conditions such as epilepsy, diabetes or heart conditions. You may receive Reiki treatments if you are undergoing chemotherapy. Pregnant woman can have Reiki treatments to support them through all stages of the pregnancy. Reiki is for everyone!
