Reiki, pronounced Ray-Key, is an ancient Japanese technique involving the laying on of hands for natural healing. The definition of the word Reiki is universal life force energy, the Chinese call it Qi and the Sanskrit word for it is Prana

Reiki healing is a safe non-intrusive healing technique where Reiki, spiritual energy, flows through the hands, which are placed on specific positions around or on the body. There is no pressure, manipulation or massage and as the energy flows into the recipient it helps to balance, heal and harmonise all aspects of the person, body, mind, spirit and emotion.

  • Providing a feeling of calmness and serenity
  • Aiding better sleep
  • Restoring the body’s natural energies
  • Helping relieve aches and pains
  • Dissolving energy blockages in the body
  • Increases vitality
  • Promotes a more positive outlook


What can I expect from a treatment?

You lie down fully clothed on a bed. I do a chakra check first to see if there are any specific chakras that feel out of alignment. I will then place crystals on or around the chakras to help bring them into balance. I start at the head and work my way down the body. Please feel free to say at the beginning of the treatment if you prefer not to be touched.I sometimes use a drum at the end of a treatment if I feel it is needed.
As I work I sometimes pick up on spirits or spirit guides. My work is intuitive and I always tell you what I have felt or been told during the treatment. It is completely up to you as to whether you would like to feedback or not.

This is what some of my clients have said

“I tried Reiki for the first time with Lindsay and absolutely loved the treatment. It was deeply relaxing and energising at the same time. I can’t say I understand how it works, but I definitely like how it feels! As a busy working parent with very little time to relax, it’s a godsend! Thanks Lindsay xx” Polly

“Lovely relaxing reiki session with added bonus of crystals. Lindsay recommended some crystals for me to use based on her sense of my energy and where it needed boosting. Her knowledge of crystals is amazing.” Ruth
