Often known as ‘healing hands’ or the ‘laying of the hands’, Reiki comes from Rei Ki, meaning universal (rei) life energy (ki) in Japanese. It can be very powerful and lead to complete life changes for some people, whilst for others it conveys a comforting, loving feeling.
Ginette offers the choice of hands on and off, or hands off Reiki – with a variety of treatment options. During the treatment you lay fully clothed on the massage couch, covered in blankets whilst Ginette shares Reiki energy with you, giving you a lovely feeling of relaxation. Some people just feel at peace whilst others have a feeling of connection. Others have a more profound response - seeing colours, feeling the pressure of energy or a magnetic effect. It really doesn't matter. Reiki believers feel that you are benefiting from the energy whether you are physically and/or emotionally aware of it or not!
There are no expectations needed from Ginette or you – just to be present. All that is asked is that you be mindful - acknowledging any thoughts that come into your head and letting them go, whilst be awre of your own presence and surroundings. People come to Reiki for emotional, spiritual or physical ‘healing’, or just to relax.

Reiki is for everyone – if you are Buddhist, Muslim, Pagan, Hindu, Sikh, Christian, a believer in the spirit world and spirit guides, someone who believes in connecting with past lives or lost loved ones, an atheist or agnostic, you can find a connection.
