What is Reiki?

I have often been asked this question, and I have always had difficulty answering concisely. It’s articulating something so un-academic that I find difficult, as far as I am aware no research has been carried out to prove that Reiki even exists.



I discovered Reiki while in London visiting an aunt, after relating to her how depressed I felt. She recommended her friend to me, a Reiki therapist. This my first experience of Reiki, was transformatively effective. The treatment relaxed me more than I had ever felt, the practitioners hands were warm and with my eyes closed I saw beautiful swirling clolours, and I had a feeling of floating, alongside the beautiful sounds of fiddle music playing gently in the background….did I say Reiki was hard to explain..? When I left to return to my aunt’s house, I felt like I was walking on air, very lighthearted and chirpy even. It was a total revelation to me. I was inspired to become attuned to Reiki, to be able to treat myself primarily; I had been depressed for some time. I contacted Sarah Barker on the Isle of Wight, who is a Reiki Master, and directly traceable from the original discoverer of Reiki, Dr Mikao Usui and his Lineage. Dr Usui discovered the symbols that activate Reiki.

Daisy Purcell

I have chosen a short Reiki healing session. `I love giving Reiki` Daisy tells me, and she certainly seems in her element. I find the experience peaceful and relaxing. I am aware of the feeling of heat and vibrating energy that moves across me through Daisy`s work. Daisy is gentle by nature and quietly spoken, but her healing power has great strength. Another client of Daisy`s told me, ` I could feel a heat coming from Daisy`s hands as she moved`. Reiki healing does not involve contact on skin, although the healer`s hands move across the clients body at a close distance, coming into contact with the aura.
