The method of receiving Reiki is very simple. The recipient remains clothed and lies on a couch or sits on a chair and relaxes. The practitioner then 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, although a practitioner may work on particular areas for slightly longer if they feel it’s required. Sessions can be 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the client’s needs and requests.

Reiki practitioners aren’t allowed to diagnose or predict any specific outcome from treatment, however they will happily talk about the session with the recipient, once the treatment has ended. If people are concerned about their symptoms they should always see a doctor.

What do Reiki treatments feel like?

Each person experiences Reiki differently, depending on their individual needs at the time.

Clients may or may not feel sensations during a Reiki session. Benefits reported by recipients include deep relaxation and a calm, peaceful sense of well-being on all levels. Some people feel sensations of heat, tingling and pressure, or experience seeing colours, whilst others can have quite an emotional response. This is all perfectly normal.


There are no known contra-indications for Reiki.

It is a non-intrusive treatment that can be delivered in a variety of settings and requires no special equipment.

Full 1 Hour Session: £45
1/2 Hour Session:    £30


I had no idea what to expect when I first visited Claire. I had been feeling awful both physically and emotionally for a number of months. I had blamed this on the menopause and stress.

Claire is such a warm and understanding person and from the minute I met her I felt I had met someone who really understood and most of all listened. 

Afterwards, I feel both calm and energised at the same time. My aches and pains are so much better now my body is not hanging onto the emotional issues in the form of tension in my back and shoulders.

I have had lower back pain for many years, having seen many different types of therapists over the years; none gave me long-lasting relief. A colleague recommended Claire to me and rather skeptically, I went along to see her. After just 3 sessions I am now completely pain-free. I was amazed, that something so gentle could have such a huge effect. I am so grateful, thank you.
