About me

Reiki is a practice that can help bring balance into your body. Therefore, it can have different effects on different people, depending on what is out of balance for each person. The effects more widely reported, in my clinical experience, are that the person feels deeply relaxed (body and mind), calm, it helps them with sleep and pain management (physical and emotional, e.g. grieving).

Reiki is used in many hospitals in the US and some in the UK. In a number of small studies it has been documented that Reiki can improve relaxation, anxiety, depression and can help with pain management (physical and emotional). It is this effect of deep relaxation created by Reiki that triggers your body into a self-healing mode.

A treatment is carried out as a sequence of hand positions, on head and torso mainly, using light touch and in a non intrusive way. Reiki is safe, there are no known medical contraindications.

As for myself, I am a CNHC registered Reiki practitioner and also a certified nutritional therapist. 

As well as having my own private practice, I also work at St George’s hospital as part of Full Circle’s team of therapists. For more information on the latter please check out these links:

I practise self healing daily and regularly attend Reiki shares and training events to keep strengthening my Reiki through time.

My lineage is Dr Mikao Usui, Dr Chujiro Hayashi, Hawayo Takata, Wanja Twan, Kajsa Krishni Boräng and Tripuri Dunne.

My journey with Reiki started in 2010, when I was initiated into the Reiki Usui Shiki Ryoho system by Victoria Dalgleish. In 2012 I started working with the highly respected Tripuri Dunne, who prepared me for public practice and who is my current master and mentor.

I was initially attracted to Reiki as a tool for personal development. It has given me that and so much more! Through the years Reiki has become part of my life. It has helped me find my path in life and has given me the courage to follow it. Reiki is now so embedded in my life that I could not imagine not having it.

I am fully insured, CNHC registered and I am a member of the Reiki Association.

I would love to spread Reiki as much as possible and see everyone around me benefit from it as much as I have done (and continue to do!).

Further information

This is what some of my clients had to say about me:

"My cousin in India told me about Reiki and I had no clue about it. While getting a consultation for nutritional therapy from Raquel, she explained to me about Reiki. Many of the issues with my digestive system seemed to be stress related, having been through some tough time in my life. I read about Reiki and felt that, although I did not think I needed that much physical healing, mentally/emotionally I could do with some support in whatever form I could get it.

After four sessions of Reiki from Raquel, I found many knots in my mind opening up. I feel emotionally healed and open to challenges in life that I had considered myself not worthy of anymore.

Reiki sessions from Raquel have given me an ability to face life with new strength and determination. I was drawn to Reiki for emotional healing and I can say that in the past weeks, these sessions with Raquel have put me in the right direction.

Raquel’s sincerity and professionalism is admirable. I am thankful to Raquel for opening up possibilities in my life through Reiki. “    Vijay

“I had a Reiki session from Raquel during a very tough time of my life where stress and negativity surrounded me from everywhere.  I didn’t know what Reiki was supposed to do to me, I just knew that it’s a way of channeling the positive energy in the universe towards you through the practitioner.

Raquel started by putting on relaxing music in the background which helped me to be more relaxed.  When she started the practice, I felt really warm all over my body; the warmth came from within.  My eyes were closed during the session but to my surprise all what I was able to see while having my eyes closed was light, strong bright light.  Half way through the session I started to feel really uplifted spiritually and physically, I felt so energetic and extremely positive.  At the end of the session my mind was very clear, my body was warm and comfortable and I had a very strong feeling of positivity, happiness and strength to deal with any life challenge mentally and physically.

I would definitely go for more Reiki sessions with Raquel again.” Sikelia

“I received four reiki sessions from Raquel on four consecutive days. She made me feel confortable and cared for. The reiki helped me to relax and approach my personal circumstances with a different perspective, more at ease.

Lately she has also given me distant healing. I am always amazed at Raquel’s intuition in these sessions helping me to realize what is going on in my unconscious mind.

Raquel is a very good reiki practitioner and I feel privileged to have her around.”   Rocio
