About me

Reiki treatment is a process that anyone can enjoy in the normal course of their life. Reiki can be used alongside other conventional or complementary treatment and often helps to provide emotional support during recovery.

The practice is taught by Reiki masters / teachers who have trained in the tradition passed on in person from master to student.

The method of receiving Reiki is simple. The recipient remains clothed and lies on a couch or sits on a chair and relaxes. The practitioner gently places their hands in a series of non-intrusive positions on or near the body. There is no massage or manipulation. The whole person is treated rather than specific areas. Sessions take 45 minutes to an hour.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified in Reiki Level 1 in 2002, then subsequently qualified in Reiki Level 2 and became a Reiki Master in 2003. Since then I have also qualified in Angel Healing, Ethereal Crystal Healing and am a fully qualified pranic healer.

I have worked by healing and energising my clients for many years, and has also found that children and animals respond beautifully. My children regularly ask for “Magic Hands”, and it has helped my youngest deal with a difficult medical condition and my eldest cope with her teenage years. My dog and rabbits are also keen participants.

I am also a healer at the Harmony Therapy Trust in Kent, who are able to give complimentary treatments to terminally ill people. I have worked with many cancer patients and seen a huge difference in their emotional wellness and health.

I run meditation sessions on Twin Hearts in Petts Wood, every third Wednesday of the month.

        “I just wanted to share a quick note and let you know how relaxed I felt following the healing. Not only was my mood lifted, I feel lighter (energetically) than I had ever felt before. I can’t wait to come and see you again – thank you!” Andrew
