What is Reiki?

Universal Energy

Reiki is a form of energy healing discovered by Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist, during his studies of Indian sutras and Sanskrit texts in the late 1800s. Its origins are believed to go back much further, to ancient Lemuria - also known as Mu - from where it travelled through China and Tibet.

‘Rei’ means ‘universal’ and ‘ki’ means life energy, so the term Reiki translates as ‘universal energy’. Practitioners are tuned into this energy by their teachers, who give them sacred symbols they can use to channel Reiki into the physical and subtle energy bodies of their clients, promoting deep relaxation and healing. There are various different styles of Reiki: the styles I work with are Usui (or Holy Fire) and Seichem.  I am
a member of the UK Reiki Federation and that I adhere to their code of ethics.

Reiki can be used on its own or in combination with massage, and it can be given when you are seated or lying down. You don’t have to undress for a Reiki treatment; in fact, you don’t even have to be touched, because Reiki works just as well with the practitioner’s hands held over your body. It’s a gentle treatment that is suitable for children as well as adults.

During a treatment, a Reiki practitioner will place their hands gently on or over your body and channel Reiki using techniques such as beaming the energy or filling up areas with Reiki. As well as treating your physical body, the Reiki treats your subtle energy fields, including the etheric, emotional, mental and spiritual energetic bodies. I also use it to ‘comb’ and cleanse your aura, to treat and fine-tune your energy centres, or chakras, and to clear any stagnant or unhelpful energy. 

During the treatment you may feel warmth or cold coming from my hands, and you may see colours and images. You might feel a breeze, or a pulsating sensation and you’ll almost certainly feel deeply relaxed. Reiki is excellent for bringing your subtle energy fields, including the etheric, emotional, mental and spiritual energetic bodies into alignment. It is lovely when combined with massage. Massage works from the outside in and Reiki works from the inside out, so they complement each other.

Reiki gives a sense of balance and wholeness and is particularly effective in helping with recovery from chronic pain, injuries, chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety, headaches, neurological imbalances and digestive issues.

Reiki gives a sense of balance and wholeness. Many people come to me simply because they enjoy the feeling of wellbeing it creates; other come with conditions such as chronic pain, injuries, chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety, headaches, neurological imbalances and digestive issues. I’ve also treated people who are recovering from operations.

What My Clients Say

Stacey

Clara creates a beautifully relaxing and safe environment to receive a healing massage. She listens to my needs and responds to what my body requires, her knowledge and experience leaves me feeling relaxed and revived. I really recommend a visit to Clara for a treatment.

Alex

I found Clara to be both professional and very friendly. After just a few minutes I felt totally safe and relaxed knowing I was in competent hands. She didn't rush , and was both very present and focused but also sensitive. I was really impressed with her technique I have had many massages before from others and they were either to soft and didn't do the job, or too hard and it was too painful! I would say Clara is actually one of the best massage therapists I've been to and would totally recommend her.

I've been having regular massage sessions to help with a shoulder impingement. Each time I feel the benefit for days and helps get the most out of my physio exercises.
