Usui Reiki With Yvonne Oakes


Benefits of Reiki

Reiki helps to cleanse, rebalance and restore harmony on all levels, be that physical, mental, emotional or spiritual.

  • Reiki is extremely effective in helping with relaxation and stress release
  • It can help clear the head aiding clear thinking and decision making
  • It benefits people with all kinds of illnesses and injury including arthritis, back pain, MS, ME, insomnia, high blood pressure, depression, skin problems, migraine, anxiety, depression and more
  • It can help people come to terms with and cope with deep emotional distress from past traumas/experiences and bereavement
  • It helps with appreciating the joy and happiness we already feel – you do not have to be unwell to benefit from Reiki.
  • All of my clients tell me they feel relaxed, yet energised at the same time following a Reiki session.

I have known Yvonne a few years now but had never tried Reiki. Then I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was both shocked and very stressed with what was going to happen. Yvonne asked if I was willing to try Reiki. She explained it and put me at ease straight away. I can honestly say I couldn’t believe how much of a difference it made me feel from the first session, I was hooked. During my chemotherapy I have experienced both hands on Reiki and been sent it and it has definitely helped me feel very relaxed and given me a positive mindset. I would highly recommend Yvonne, she is kind, caring and very professional.

What is Reiki

Reiki is a beautiful, simple, uncomplicated, yet powerful form of spiritual healing using the Universal Life Force Energy that activates the body’s natural ability to heal itself. It is a journey of self discovery, personal development, healing and love. It is a tool for self awareness and transformation. It brings about a change in you and really empowers you to reach your full potential. It empowers you to heal yourself on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level simultaneously. This brings your energy system into balance, creating harmony, serenity and joy.

What can I expect during a Reiki treatment

Each session lasts for approximately 1 hour

Reiki is given with the person fully clothed, either lying down or sat comfortably in a chair.

The energy is channelled through me by placing my hands on or just above your body.

Each experience is unique to the person receiving Reiki determined by their own energy needs at the time- there is no right or wrong, good or bad experience.

What might I feel

  • You may feel heat or cold in the area being treated
  • You may experience tingling in the area being treated
  • You may see colours and images in your mind during the treatment
  • You may feel sleepy and you may fall asleep
  • You may have a feeling of deep relaxation and calmness
  • Sometimes there is a spontaneous emotional release
  • You may feel nothing at all (but this does not mean the reiki is not having an effect).

If a client wishes the Reiki Drum Technique can be incorporated into the session.

Where can I receive Reiki

You do not need a ‘special’ place to receive Reiki. It can be given anywhere. Having said that, I like to create an environment that invokes calmness and a feeling of being held.

I offer Reiki in my home, in clients’ homes, at The Hare and The Moon in Twickenham, and at Enigma in Ebbw Vale, South Wales.

Distance Reiki

Reiki can be received remotely, and so is beneficial to those unable to meet with me face to face. We simply need to agree a date and time that is convenient for us both.

What happens during a Remote Reiki session

We will have agreed a date and time convenient to us both. At the agreed time I will telephone you to ensure you are ready for Reiki and comfortable in a room where you will not be disturbed. Following a brief conversation we will both ‘hang up’. At the end of the Reiki session, which lasts approximately 45-60 minutes I will once again call you on the telephone to discuss anything you may have experienced during the session.

I treat a Remote Reiki session as if you are with me. The room I use has a beautiful energy, I play Reiki music, have incense and candles burning and my salt rock lamp lit.

You don’t need to do any of theses things, but it can create a relaxing atmosphere for you.

How many sessions do you need?

A one-off session of Reiki will most certainly be of benefit to you. However, this effect is unlikely to be long lasting. To get the greatest benefit out of Reiki you will need between 4-6 sessions at weekly intervals if possible, as Reiki builds up accumulatively over time. 4-6 sessions is usually enough to bring about a permanent change. This can be discussed at your first session and we will review things together at each session.

Many people have a ‘top up’ at intervals as it gives a lovely boost to your energy in addition to it’s wonderful relaxing effects.
