Distance Reiki


How does the Reiki work?

People who practice Reiki understand that pain and illness in the body are exemplified by blocked energy (life force, chi, prana) pathways called Chakras, Meridians and Nadis. Certain factors such as stress, illness, depression, grief, loss, anxiety, and dis-ease within the body diminishes the vital function of the organs and cells of the physical body. The goal of Reiki treatments is to strengthen the flow of energy through these blocked or disturbed pathways, thus decreasing pain and enhancing the body’s natural ability to fight illnesses and heal itself.

What is distance healing and how does it work?

A distance healing is a treatment that is practiced when the recipient is not physically present and this works in a similar way to being in the presence of the healer. Distance healing allows the recipient to benefit from the healing process even if they are unable to be present due to distance or illness. Distance healing works on the premise that there is no past, no present, no future, bringing all time into the ‘NOW’

I have been doing Reiki healings in person and at a distance since 2002. And do I believe it is as effective in person as it is at a distance?…absolutely!  Please allow me to explain how.

Reiki Master/Teachers, like myself, or Second degree Reiki Practitioners learn and receive sacred symbols, one of which is the ‘distance symbol.’ When invoked and used by a Reiki Master/Teacher or Reiki practitioner, this symbol allows the practitioner to send healing Reiki energy across time and space.

This symbol can also be used in-person to help clear blockages from the past, or across large parts of the body. Similarly, it can be used to cleanse neighbourhoods or geographic places, even healing situations/events from the past. When practicing Reiki on someone who is not physically present, the Distance Healing symbol is used to connect to his or her energy.

Distance Reiki works according to the quantum world we live in, which holds that we are all connected, as we are all energy matter and part of a larger whole. As such, invoking universal energy during a distance Reiki session allows the practitioner to link an object/photo to the energy field of the recipient.

Whether you are present during a Reiki session or at a distance, Reiki will automatically go to the part of you that is needed the most, as it works on all levels; physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. The Distance Healing Symbol used during the treatments can allow the receiver to see new choices and actions to promote their own health and overall well-being.

A quick summary:

Distance Healing for You, your Pet, and all Animals

  • I provide Reiki Distance Healing on request for both people and animals anywhere in the world!
  • Distance has no barrier with Reiki and can be received by all who are open to receive it to assist with many conditions and illnesses.
  • You can specify the time you want to receive the Reiki or I can send it anytime during the day or evening.
  • Reiki works on a holistic level: mind-body-spirit.
  • Reiki always respects your or another’s free will, so if you, or someone else, is not wanting to receive it, it will not work.
  • If you are requesting the Distance Reiki session for someone else, I will require their permission.
  • Reiki does not replace traditional medicine but works well alongside.
  • There are no guarantees and if you are unwell it is suggested that you visit your health-care professional, or veterinarian as appropriate.
  • I combine a session of Reiki healing with crystals that I am intuitively guided to use, along with creating a Crystal Reiki Grid to promote on-going healing after the session has finished.
How long do the effects of a Reiki session last?

This depends on the condition and will vary from person to person. Illnesses and diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis et cetera, or conditions such as depression, anxiety, or emotional overwhelm, the treatments can be repeated as often as requested. Reiki can only benefit and cannot do harm!

What can Reiki help you with?

The benefits of Reiki are unlimited! The effects of unreleased stress and repressed emotions range from minor aches to major health concerns, such as heart disease, digestive disorders, respiratory, skin problems, depression and high anxiety. Reiki (ray-key) is a technique that aids the body in releasing stress and tension by creating deep relaxation and a positive attitude. Reiki can also bring insights into a particular situation or illness enabling the recipient to see better life choices. Because of this, Reiki promotes healing and benefits for most things.

Reiki and Cancer Treatments

There is no scientific evidence to prove that Reiki can prevent or cure cancer, or any other disease. Studies have found that, although Reiki is not a substitute for other cancer treatments, many healthcare professionals accept Reiki as a useful complementary therapy which may help lower stress, promote relaxation and reduce pain associated with the progression of the disease.  It can also reduce some of the uncomfortable symptoms patients commonly experience during cancer treatment, such as anxiety, weakness and nausea. Furthermore, Reiki can also improve the patient’s emotional health and outlook, thus enhance recovery.

Because Reiki is a non-invasive technique that causes no side effects or complications, it can be performed on cancer patients at virtually any time following their diagnosis. Whether the patient is newly diagnosed and waiting to begin treatment, is actively undergoing treatment or is in the late stages of cancer and facing a poor prognosis, Reiki sessions may be beneficial.

Reiki may also be effective at reducing anxiety and inducing relaxation and balance among patients who are in remission after completing cancer treatments.

However, in spite of its many benefits, it is important to note that Reiki is not a substitute for traditional cancer treatments. Although studies and anecdotal evidence indicate that Reiki can increase patient comfort levels and enhance healing, it has not been scientifically shown to effectively treat cancer on its own. Thus, patients should view Reiki as one part of a comprehensive cancer treatment plan.

Notable Research

Scientific evidence has shown that Reiki can minimise patient’s symptoms and improve their quality of life. The American Cancer Society clearly regards and promotes Reiki as a safe, complimentary cancer therapy. Through their studies, they purport that since Reiki does not manipulate tissue (as does body massage or reflexology), it is considered to be a non-invasive, effective therapy. Their studies also acknowledge that Reiki induces relaxation, lowers heart rate, reduces stress and reported less pain overall; in turn this promotes better, faster healing. These patients still took the same amount of pain medication, but they reported feeling better when Reiki was part of their treatment regimen.

The American Cancer Society have also reported that there are number of patient reports supporting the effectiveness of Reiki with regard to refreshing the spirit and improving an individual’s sense of well-being. Many cancer patients who utilised Reiki have also reported less nausea and vomiting after Reiki sessions taken during cancer treatment.

Penn Medicine reports that another study conducted by the Abramson Cancer Centre’s Integrative Oncology Initiative showed that Reiki can provide many benefits to patients’ perceptions of pain, decreased stress levels, reduced anxiety and increased relaxation.

Research carried out at the Hartford Hospital in Connecticut, revealed that Reiki improved the sleep patterns of patients by 86 percent, reduced levels of pain and nausea by 78 percent and 80 percent, respectively.

Hospitals and clinics across Australia and the U.S. are beginning to acknowledge Reiki as a meaningful way to improve patient care.

California Pacific Medical Centre, one of the largest hospitals in that State, offers a range of complementary therapies, including acupuncture, homeopathy, aromatherapy and Reiki, for acute and chronic illnesses.

The International Association of Reiki Professionals shows that Dr. Michael Cantwell, a paediatrician at California Pacific Medical Centre, uses Reiki in the “treatment of acute illnesses such as musculoskeletal injury, pain, headache, acute infections and asthma.”

Deciding about Reiki Treatment

For those who presently suffer with cancer and wonder if they should risk trying Reiki, it remains an arduous dilemma. As with any treatment, whether it’s traditional or a complimentary alternative, you are still required to take a gamble. There are no guarantees and any Reiki practitioner who promises a “cure” should be avoided.

Although Reiki has not been scientifically proven to kill or eradicate cancer cells, it has been proven to dramatically improve pain levels and increase over-all comfort, which thus reduces the dosage of pain medication. As a result, Reiki motivates the patient/client’s desire to get well. Based on these findings, it would be worthwhile to at least try the soothing benefits of Reiki.

A Distance healing session

I typically use the recipient's photo and a variety of crystals that I feel guided to use, along with crystals chosen from the card reading. Once the Reiki distance treatment has finished, usually between 30 – 45 minutes, I create a crystal ‘grid’ by placing the crystals on and around the photo of the person. This holds the energy of Reiki longer, and the healing is emphasised by the metaphysical healing properties of the crystals for an indefinite time period, or for the time period stated by the client.

Setting up a mutual time is also helpful, so the recipient is open to receiving the energy. However, distance Reiki can be sent to anyone, anywhere and at any time, though permission should, in some way, be invoked or received.

Please note: Reiki distance healings can also be sent to animals. And, although animals usually respond exceptional well, Reiki should not replace  Veterinarian care and recommended treatments, but works well alongside.

Treatment includes:
  • A full distance healing, typically lasting around 30 – 45 minutes
  • An optional crystal card reading
  • A crystal grid unique to you
  • A confirmation email when session completed, along with a photo of your crystal grid
