• "When I first visited Theresa for Reiki, I was very stressed and not coping with various
    family issues. At the beginning of each weekly session, Theresa and I would
    talk about how I was feeling and I found her clear insight very
    helpful. During the Reiki, she was able to release some
    of my blocked energy and start to restore balance to my body.
    As a result, I was able to put things into perspective
    without the worry and anxiety I had been experiencing.
    I felt more relaxed and able to cope once again.
    Now that I'm feeling much better I use Reiki
    a few times a year to maintain this feeling of
    well being."

    Karen - TV/Film Producer
  • “I have been having Reiki treatments on a weekly basis (6) and I have
    to say that I have come a long way since I started. I feel much more clearer
    and can 'see' my situation so much better. I also feel empowered
    to move forward in my life. Thank you so much Theresa,
    for all your patience, understanding and helping me to 'see'.
    I will certainly be taking your
    Level I Reiki course next month.”

What is Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki?

The Word Reiki (pronounced ray - key) is Japanese. It is the make up of two words ‘Rei’ which means 'Universal Life' or 'Spiritual Wisom', in the sense of everywhere, and also ‘Ki’ which means the same as prana or chi, i.e. the vital life force within everything alive. Reiki is also the descriptive name for the Usui art of Natural Healing,' which was rediscovered and developed by Dr. Mikao Usui of Kyoto, Japan toward the end of the 19th century. The process of an initiation (or an attunement) is what sets Reiki apart from every other forms of 'laying on of hands' or touch healing. There are three degrees/levels of Usui Reiki.

Reiki is not a religion and is not affiliated with any such religion. Anyone can learn Reiki: Reiki does not discriminate, as it is a pure, loving and positive healing energy. It does not take special ability or years of practice, as Reiki can be easily learnt in a day or two with immediate effective, positive results.
What is Karuna Reiki®?

Karuna Reiki® was developed by William Rand of the International Centre for Reiki Training. Karuna is a Sanskrit word that means “compassionate action”. This is a twelve symbol healing system, which brings in healing energies that are noticeably stronger and able to more quickly heal a wider range of dis-ease. Many who have been Reiki Masters for years begin channeling healing results that are more powerful than previously experienced.

Karuna and Usui Energies
Each form of the Reiki energy has its unique characteristics; however they work exceedingly well together. It is very powerful to weave the Usui energy between the Karuna frequencies in a treatment and it is beneficial to close a Karuna session with Usui and Karuna energies combined.
How can you experience Reiki Healing?
Reiki is experienced whilst the client relaxes fully clothed on a massage table while the practitioner lightly lays his/her hands on, engulfing the body front and back with pure Reiki energy – Reiki works on the whole body, inside and out.
Reiki addresses physical, mental, emotional and energetic imbalances. It also promotes overall well-being, healing and optimal good health.
Who can benefit from Reiki?
We can all benefit from Reiki Healing; it is suitable for people of all ages and is helpful with a wide range of health related issues, including:
Sports Injuries
Back Pain
Rheumatic Pain
Digestive Problems
Menstrual problems
High Blood Pressure
Skin Disorders
Phobias and Addictions
Reiki works well in conjunction with conventional treatments.
