What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by placing hands on or near the body. Reiki is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. 

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. 


Sophie: Level II Reiki Practitioner

Hi! My name is Sophie, and I am a level II Reiki practitioner. Through guiding yoga, I always got a feeling that “my touch” had a healing power to it. That I could place my hands on a students body and instantly feel them relax and let go. In 2018 I decided that I wanted to understand more about this energy that was flowing through me, so I signed up for my Reiki certification. I love the magic and mystery that comes with healing people energetically.

A 60 minute Reiki session with me feels like an escape to the spa. I spend time energetically cleansing the healing space, and calling upon my reiki guides to fill the room with positive healing energy. You can expect to enter a lightly lit room, with candles, incense and sage. You will make yourself comfortable on the massage table and use the blankets to snuggle up and get cozy. A brief conversation between us will allow me to understand what needs my attention, whether this is drawing something away from your body, or guiding something in.

Our session together can include a no-touch method, or light touch with my hands on various parts of your body. Our time together will conclude with another discussion about anything that you may have felt during the session, or any messages that I need to pass on.

I use my Reiki energy healing in both private and group workshop settings. If you’re interested in booking a private session then I would love to chat with you and see if this is right for you. If you’re interested in a group workshop, you can reach out to me for a private booking - or keep your eyes on the “workshop” page, under “book a class” to wait for my next offering.

In love + light,



Tanja: Level II Reiki Practitioner

Welcome! My name is Tanja and I am a 2nd Degree Usui Reiki Practitioner. For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated by energy. The magic that can be transferred through touch, felt in a room as you enter or the draw of certain people, places or even crystals. Through my own healing journey with reiki, it was clear that it was a part of my purpose to be attuned to this energetic and spiritual power.

Reiki is based on this concept that imbalance of vital energy in our bodies that may lead to diseases. By correcting these imbalances, we promote healing.

In our time together I will help you tune in to the Universal Life Force Energy and as a Reiki Practitioner, I will help you draw upon that energy to facilitate emotional, mental and physical healing. I have learned to trust my hands and my intuition allowing the energy to flow freely through me and guide me in the process.

You can find me offering healing treatments one on one or in workshop settings, a space to find relaxation, serenity,  and a deeper connection to self and source.

I would be honoured to guide you through a session to see what unfolds for you.

Peace, love + light,
