WANT TO KNOW MORE?

Answers to frequently asked questions...

I’ve compiled a list of the most frequent questions; I encourage questions from my clients.

If you can’t find what you are looking for, please get in touch.

WHAT IS EFT?

EFT is a simple and effective technique. By stimulating a sequence of pressure points on the body by tapping with your own fingers, Emotional Freedom Techniques result in a calming effect on the amygdala (the stress centre of the brain - responsible for Cortisol) and the hippocampus (the brain’s memory centre), both of which play a role in the decision making process to determine if something is, or isn’t, a threat, and in the fight or flight response.

You can find out more here.

WHAT IS REIKI?

Reiki is performed with you fully clothed and in a seated or lying position.  

The healing begins when I place my hands slightly above you and/or on you.  (If you don't wish to be touched, this is fine, the Reiki will still work even if it is beamed to you from a distance)!

Universal energy will pass from my hands to you, it will go where it is most needed; I am only a conduit for this process.

I will place my hands in different positions as I am intuitively guided to do.   I may also use crystals and sound healing to assist me, again this will be as I am guided to do.  

Reiki healing can be given as distance healing; the universal energy will still flow.   This is particularly good if you or a loved one are feeling unwell or unable to attend in my healing space. 

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Reiki should never be painful for cause discomfort - Reiki energy works for your highest good.

  • Reiki is a complimentary therapy; do not stop taking medication or stop any medical care you are receiving without proper consultation with your medical practitioner.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY REIKI SESSION?

Most people report feeling a deep sense of relaxation during a Reiki session, some even feel a floating, blissful sensation.

Others feel energized or experience physical sensations like warmth, cold, or tingling.  

It is not unusual to feel emotional during a session and you may feel you are teary as blockages are being released. 

I often find that my tummy rumbles (sorry!) and so do my clients; please do not feel embarrassed or uncomfortable about any physical release.

You should never feel any physical pain or discomfort during Reiki.

Reiki energy always works for your highest good.  In preparation for your session, I take care to ensure that I always ask for this.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY REIKI SESSION?

If you have children (and they are not receiving treatment), the first thing you need to do is arrange care for them.  Your session is all about you and your needs (a rare moment as a parent).

Please keep hydrated prior to your arrival, our bodies are over 70% water, so to assist energy flow, water is vital. 

Wear comfortable clothing.  

Please do not attend your appointment if you are sick, just let me know and we can re-schedule. 

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER MY REIKI SESSION?

Keep hydrated - Please drink lots of water or your favourite herbal tea (avoid caffeinated drinks and alcohol here possible).  Keeping hydrated will optimise energy flow around your body and help facilitate any changes that your body needs to make.

Be kind to yourself – you’ve made time for yourself by being here today which is totally deserved and an awesome start.   Try and get yourself to bed earlier, do something that helps you relax and see if you can get some help with after school activities and drop offs.


Keep grounded! – Spend some time in nature, notice your breathing in quiet moments and maybe try a grounding meditation.   There are lots of apps you can use, you can even find some on Spotify.

Contact me - If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch. 

CAN CHILDREN HAVE REIKI AND EFT?

Yes, they can!  My children have Reiki and EFT sessions with me. 

EFT can be used in a wide variety of circumstances.   Children can learn EFT with ease and then use it to help them whenever they need it - it can be easily used to lower stress.

For Reiki -  I have 30 minute sessions for children under 12 years (see booking page).  Children can be seated or laying down, they may prefer to be playing or reading - they can receive distance healing if preferred.

I have a Working with Children check and there is room in my therapy room for parents to be present at all times. 

HOW CAN I LEARN REIKI MYSELF?

You can learn Reiki from a Reiki Master.   You will need to be attuned to Reiki energy and go through the process of understanding Reiki and how to use it on yourself and others .  

I am teaching Reiki Level 1 at the end of the 2022 and Reiki Level 2 at the start of 2023 - for more information, please contact me.
