About me

Jo Hanby is the GHP Mental Health Awards Winner - Reiki Practitioner of the Year - for 2022 and 2023.

Essex Reiki Healing has been awarded "Best Pet Complementary Therapy Practitioner, 2023 - South East England" by LUXlife Magazine.

I am a qualified and insured Reiki Master Practitioner and Teacher, offering relaxing reiki healing treatments as a mobile therapist at your home in Witham or also for those local to St Osyth.

Reiki is a wonderful healing therapy and can help with many physical and emotional issues. Common complaints presented include: inability to sleep, depression, stress and anxiety, aches and pains. Clients report a deep sense of relaxation during and after a treatment and it is ideal for those who are under stress and strain or suffering from long-term ailments, as reiki accelerates the body's natural ability to heal itself.


I am also qualified in Animal Reiki and animal healing and have a Master Practitioner/Teaching degree in animal reiki. Animals respond intuitively to reiki's power to heal emotional, behavioural, and physical illnesses and injuries and reiki can help animals who are ill, pregnant, near transition or displaying behavioural issues. It is also a helpful addition when rehoming a rescue animal.

Animals pick up on our stress and so I often treat animal and animal owner in harmony - as one heals, the other heals. I love working with animals and teaching people how to enjoy reiki themselves and see the benefits reiki brings to their pets.

Want to discover how animal reiki can help you and your pet?
Animal lovers who want to bond with their pet, understand and resolve behaviourial issues and those with an interest in reiki and self-healing will love my one day animal reiki course. Learn chakra work, how to communicate and understand your pet, how to offer different types of reiki to you and your pet and much more! Attunements given to you during the day mean you will be able to practice on animals immediately and give feedback on what you have learned from communicating with your pet whilst they enjoy reiki.

The course is available in person or via e-learning.
