What is Reiki?
“Reiki” (ray-key) is Japanese for ‘universal life energy’, a term used to describe a natural system
to help bring about an improved sense of wellbeing and a positive feeling of spiritual renewal.
This tradition was founded by Dr Mikao Usui in the early 20th century and evolved as a result of
his research, experience and dedication. It is a tradition that is open to any belief system and
benefits may include deep relaxation and the promotion of a calm peaceful sense of wellbeing.
The method of receiving a Reiki treatment from a practitioner is simple. The recipient remains
clothed and comfortably lies on a couch or sits on a chair. The practitioner gently places their
hands non-intrusively, on or near the body using their intuition and training as a guide. There is
no massage or manipulation. Reiki can be used on the person as a whole, or on specific parts
of the body. It is also possible to receive Reiki at a distance.
Reiki is also taught by Reiki Master/Teachers, who have trained in the tradition passed on, in person,
from Master to student. Students go through a process of initiation/attunement to the Reiki
energy. They are then able to treat themselves and others, not only from a personal and
emotional perspective, but also as an aid to individual development and spiritual growth.

Types of Remote Reiki sessions available
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I only offer Remote Reiki sessions:
There are two types of Remote Healing Sessions:
Standard as described here below.
Enhanced (first session): The Enhanced treatment includes a Healing Attunement followed by a standard reiki session and a mini clearing around your relationship with reiki, receiving it and healing. It is a great treatment to start with.
Enhanced (follow up session): The Enhanced follow up sessions include a Healing Attunement followed by a standard remote reiki session.
How does it work?
We will book a mutually convenient time where we will both link, through our focus and intention, with each other.
You will be asked to prepare a "sacred" space ( like if you were about to go into meditation), light up some candles, ensure you will not be disturbed for an hour. I will do the same on the other side and link up with you and send Reiki for 20 minutes.
In the case of the Enhanced session, I will be sending you reiki (including the healing attunement for 40 minutes). Allow another 20 minutes or more to stay still after that time...
This attunement aims at bringing in high frequency healing energies which are more powerful than those given during a standard remote Reiki treatment. When performed before the standard session, it aims at making the treatment more effective by opening the Aura and creating a more receptive state.
Benefits of a healing attunement
Aim at removing negative energies at physical, auric and chakra levels
Aim at removing blocks chosen by client (before the session you need the client to be willing to remove these blocks)
Aim at empowering goals when the achievement seems to be blocked. You might also receive insight and guidance in making plans
Aim at opening healing through client's guides
I have performed a lot of these attunements on clients/patients who suffer from chronic illnesses, terminal illnesses, cancer etc. All my clients have confirmed that the healing appeared much deeper than their standard reiki treatment. I only perform healing attunements remotely.
As you will see from the testimonial below, staying in that energy for another 20 to 30 minutes is most beneficial!
What do they say about remote healing?
Remote healing is a difficult concept for many people to take on board. As my young son commented: “But how can that possibly work? How can you feel energy being sent from miles away?” However, for any of us who have received a reiki treatment from Steph, we know and have felt the energy flow through hands off healing. Remote healing works in the same way, but with slightly less intensity. I have personally felt the benefits of remote healing sent through by Steph when I was in hospital and afterwards at home.
I find the most powerful way of receiving remote healing is know when Steph is going to be sending the healing and take time out at that time to connect with the energy flow. I chose to lie down as I would for a normal reiki session and focus on the healing energy. Just as with a one to one reiki session, each healing is experienced differently according to where your body most needs the healing energy at that time. I have found remote healing most beneficial and relaxing and feel the effects of the healing for up to 30 minutes, feeling very relaxed afterwards.
For anyone who is unable to make a one to one session with Steph, but is in need of healing and support, I would recommend asking Steph for a remote healing at a time when you are able to connect with the energy being sent through. Clare A. (Sevenoaks)
