About me

Mary Ellis Reiki Master - Practitioner and Teacher
Reiki is a lifechanging exploration of self that helps you access the knowledge and wisdom within you and understand who you truly are. I have been with and within Reiki for 30 years now and it has been a time of joyous, profound, and far-reaching change in my life.
I believe that all you need to become a channel for Reiki is the openness, willingness, and ego-less intent to accept Reiki into your heart and life.
“Thank you for a wonderful and inspiring Reiki Day! It really helped me to trust in myself and the Universe and deepened my understandings too.” – Lori
My greatest gift is being a channel for Reiki that helps and supports other people to discover their spiritual reality. Although I do still offer healing, my primary work as a Reiki Master is in providing attunements and workshops, so I can pass on knowledge to those who are ready to receive it.
“Thank you for giving me the wonderful gift of Reiki this year. It has been such a powerful year for me, a journey of self-discovery.  Thank you for helping me on the journey. The Universe sent me to you, and I am so grateful for the wonderful Reiki tool you have given me, it is such a comfort especially in these difficult times.” – Catherine
Over the years my work with Reiki has evolved and is now focused on “Reiki with spiritual life-guidance”. This covers both the Reiki treatment I offer and my attunement classes, which are now more deeply grounded in the spiritual understanding and application of Reiki as a tool for self-empowerment and enlightenment.
“Reiki is an everyday part of my life. It is a great gift, and I am always thankful to be guided by you.” – Rosana, Reiki Master Training
Now more than ever I feel there is a deep and growing need for all of us to open, to understand, and to accept and work with everything that our lives present us with. There is an urgent need for all of us to bring ‘our whole’ into perfect balance. Our body, mind and soul cannot ever be separated. Together they are the spirit and the complete essence of what we are.
For full details of my services please feel free to give me a ring so that we can get to know one another and talk together about any further details you may need to know.

When needed by a client, within my Reiki practice I offer 'Energy Psychology', also known as Thought Field Therapy (TFT). Reiki can bring to the surface deeply held ‘hidden’ traumas. When TFT is included, I’m able to resolve the sudden eruption of distress this can bring. 
During TFT I continue to give Reiki healing, which helps bring clarity and understanding of the trauma, and further releases any residue of distress. It’s as if a wonderful shaft of light then floods into the place that has held the distress for so long. 

TFT is the original 'Tapping Technique' discovered and developed by Dr Roger Callahan PhD over 40 years ago.  It can resolve the 'root causes' of emotional distress, like trauma, PTSD, fear, anxiety, panic attacks, low self-worth, anger, rage, grief, bereavement and more. 
For full details about my TFT sessions, please go to Robin Ellis TFT Training UK.

"The memory of my daughter's suicide was stuck right inside my head like a video going round and round - it never stopped.  Now it's GONE - it's moved 3 feet outside my head!  I can look at it if I want to - but it doesn't hurt me at all." – Karen

Further information

Deciding to be attuned to Reiki is a major decision in your life that’s not to be taken lightly.
It is through the process of being attuned and receiving this tool for self-empowerment, that you begin to understand and know that you can forgive and love yourself and others and become a healer.
Once you’re sure that Reiki is the path that’s right for you, you need to take the necessary time and energy to find the Master with whom you feel affinity – that ‘rightness’ and connection you know you can trust.
“It has been an amazing journey since coming to you for Reiki sessions a few years ago and then on to my 1st and 2nddegree. Reiki has opened my heart to the unconditional love I feel for everyone.” – Lindsay
This may mean a lengthy search scanning the internet, contacting Reiki associations, asking friends and/or colleagues for recommendations, reading books, etc. The most important thing through this process is always that you are listening to your inner intuition.
There is also the potential that your initial enquiry with the first Master you contact will be the right one. As a Master I’ve attuned students who’ve known immediately that I was right for them. And there have also been times when we’ve both known I’m not the right Master for them, and that’s OK.
Ultimately the Reiki Master that you choose is there to guide you as you begin your journey to Mastery. It will take time to reach the moment when you realise, and can accept, that Reiki is a lifelong journey.  But your journey will be your journey, it will not be your Master’s. Their experience was the one that they needed, and yours will be the one that you need. The understanding and acceptance of this, by both student and Master, forms a central part of your learning and growing as you gradually evolve towards becoming a Master.  
“I honour you as my Reiki Master. I feel the Reiki I have received through you is of the purist – it is the centre of the trunk grounded in the earth. That which I received before was only a harmonic.” – Graham, Reiki Master Re-Attunement
If you feel that I am the right Master to guide and support you with your on-going journey to Mastery, our time together will be spent at Rumwood Therapy Centre – a very special place which has also been my home for over 50 years.
Rumwood is a place of peace and positivity, surrounded by lovely sunny gardens and the open rolling countryside of South Cambridgeshire. The moment you walk through our door you will be aware of the light and peace, the warm welcome, the openness, and acceptance. You will be able to relax, allow yourself to stop, focus on you, your whole self, and just be.
“You are an excellent teacher and wonderful host Mary, and your vast knowledge will surely be so helpful and educational for others during this time.” – Meena
