Julia Dolowicz, Reiki Master & Counsellor
Are you feeling stressed or anxious? Perhaps you're coping with an issue that is draining you of energy? Maybe you haven't been well, or have experienced grief.
Reiki can help: it can reduce stress and anxiety, bring about a feeling of calm and help speed up the natural healing process.
I remember the first time I went to see a Reiki Healer, I was in my 20s and coping with a debilitating illness and I felt anxious about what it was and what it would entail, but after the first 5 minutes I realised it was just what I needed. She created a sacred space for me to deeply relax and feel very nurtured. I relaxed so deeply, my mind stopped chattering.
Seeking a complementary therapist is a strength and a courageous step forward to reach out for support.
Don't worry if you're not sure about where to begin. The first step is getting in touch with me.
What happens during the session?
A complete Reiki session is usually offered to you on a treatment couch, fully clothed. You may also feel more comfortable in a supportive chair - this will be discussed at your first session.
Reiki is offered through light non-invasive touch with hands placed on your head, at various positions and on a series of locations above the body.
Here is what some clients have said:
"I feel very refreshed."
"Oh my goodness, I fell asleep for the first time in ages."
"I feel so much more relaxed."
"My headache is gone.
Receiving Reiki is a wonderfully passive experience. Don't try to relax, just let the Reiki relax you. Your state will shift quite naturally as the session proceeds. Meanwhile feel free to daydream, enjoy the music, or simply observe your breath or the sensations of the therapy.
