Reiki is a Japanese word representing Universal Life Energy (Rei – universal, Ki – life energy that flows through every living thing) and is pronounced “Ray-kee”.
A Reiki treatment is hands-on: the person receiving the treatment will lie, fully clothed, whilst the practitioner’s hands rest gently over various areas of the body for a few minutes at a time. Reiki works on the mind, body and spirit and as such is a very relaxing treatment and excellent for relieving stress.

The treatment itself is the channelling of Reiki energy through my hand. You may experience a feeling of warmth, cold or tingling. This means that you are aware of the energy that is channelled into your body.

I asked Brigitte if she may be able to help with some urgent Reiki for my partner who had suffered a stroke immediately after a routine operation.  The stroke became life-threatening and he was transferred to a specialist hospital for urgent brain surgery. He was in an induced coma for 3 weeks, and Brigitte was able to provide distant Reiki during this time. I noticed that at the times when Reiki was arranged, my partner’s blood pressure would lower to allow him to be in a more settled state.  It was a very stressful time, particularly when the doctors attempted to bring him out of his coma.  There were different things happening to his body as he came back into consciousness, and Brigitte was able to focus Reiki on each particular highlighted concern as it happened, and as the doctors assessed for impact of the stroke.  Distant Reiki continued for all the time he was in Intensive Care and I strongly feel this aided his recovery process.  Medical staff and his work colleagues have referred to him as the ‘Miracle Man’ as he has endured so much and come through.  I would not hesitate to highly recommend Brigitte – she has been so helpful at a time of great stress, and I strongly feel her help has played a large part in my partner’s recovery.
