The answers to all your questions
Do I need to prepare for a treatment?
There is nothing to prepare for your treatment.
We will welcome you into a tranquil environment and look after you. We recommend wearing loose fitting, comfortable clothing and planning to have a quiet day/evening after your treatment, if possible.
This is to fully embrace the deep relaxation the treatment will bring and to enjoy the ‘after-glow’, as the healing energy continues to work on your body for a day or so after the treatment, in line with your individual needs.
We suggest a calming candle lit bath, or taking some time for yourself, to deepen your connection to the healing energy. However, this isn’t essential. Regardless, you will still experience the ‘feel-good’ feeling from your treatment.
What to expect during my treatment:
Your treatment will take place in a tranquil environment, with peaceful music and our signature scent to enhance the peaceful experience.
During the treatment, you will be asked to sit or lay fully clothed and be covered in a soft blanket and then you will feel Jade’s hands on or near you in strategic places to bring deep relaxation and send energy into your energy field.
We will start with hands around the head area, to help calm the mind and racing thoughts, to encourage you to relax into your treatment. Then we will gradually work along the body, clearing and sending energy into your body and finishing at the feet. Our signature treatments are approx. 45 mins.
How will I feel during my treatment?
” A treatment feels like warm, gentle sunshine which flows through you, surrounds you and comforts you. Reiki treats the person’s body, emotions, mind and spirit as a whole.”
Laura Ellen Gifford
Many people comment on how comforting and nurturing and peaceful they find energy healing and how it feels like they are in a state of deep relaxation, a bit like just before falling asleep, while feeling consciously aware of what’s going on around them. This is because as you relax into the experience and let go, your body enters into a deeply meditative state.
As the energy is transmitted through the healer to the client, many people feel the heat of the Jade’s hands, a bit like a hot water bottle over the body. Sometimes Jade’s hands may feel cooler, for example, on burns or wounds. Some people also feel the energy pulsating from Jade, into them as the stress and tension is gently released and cleared.
It’s also very common for people to fall asleep during their treatment, this is a great sign as it shows the mind and body have fully relaxed and embraced the experience and they are open to receiving the healing energy without any barriers. If you do fall asleep during a treatment, please don’t worry, this is a good sign it is working and you will be gently woken after the treatment is complete and will still benefit from the session. For some people, they find their belly gurgles, as the energy is moved through the body, again this is nothing to worry about and very normal.
The most common reaction is calm and inner stillness and peace. Even if you do not feel it work, you will feel the benefits from the treatment.
As energy blockages are built over time, if you have a very strong clearing session, you may have a slight headache or slight sense of pain in the target area. This is because the energy has been shifted to clear and release. Please drink plenty of water to help your body hydrate and clear the energy and you will feel better after a couple of hours. We will keep in contact up to 48 hours after the treatment to ensure you feel good.
How often should I have treatments?
Every person is individual and during our initial consultation we will work together on your healing journey and individual needs to focus on bringing mind, body and soul into alignment
As a general rule of thumb, most clients tend to find they are instantly relaxed with great results after one session. However, energy healing has a cumulative effect, each session connects you deeper to the universal energy. Regular sessions will help build on the momentum of your first session and work to gently lift the barriers we have put in place to loving ourselves and the inner peace within. It also depends how long you have been having difficulties and how complex your needs are. One way to look at is that you wouldn’t go to a personal trainer for one session and then attempt to run a marathon. As energy healing is gentle, working with your bodies needs, to get best results a series of treatments is recommended.
The connection between you and the practitioner will also develop, encouraging your body to fully relax and be open to receiving pure, loving energy.
To start with, we recommend booking a course of 6 sessions, weekly or bi-weekly to clear your energy blockages and to work on the root causes of the symptoms. Regular sessions will help to re-balance your mind body and soul. Thereafter, energy healing is a great maintenance tool for your well-being. Regular monthly sessions, a bit like a massage for the soul, will help you feel refreshed, relaxed and energised. It will also help prevent problems building up and encourage you to make time for your health and well being. If you feel you need additional support, we can always increase your sessions. This is your individual journey and I will be with you each step of the way.
Is energy healing safe if I'm on medication or undergoing medical treatment?
Yes energy healing is safe to have while having medical treatment. It is a gentle, non-invasive complimentary treatment that is widely accepted within the medical world and recognized within the NHS. It will support orthodox treatments by complimenting and helping with pain management. If you have a serious, underlying health concern please mention this in your initial consultation to ensure your treatment is tailored for you. Please advise on your consultation if you are undergoing any medical treatment and if required we can modify your treatment.
Healing and pregnancy:
Energy healing is very safe for Mother and baby as it is a non-invasive, gentle treatment. Reiki and Precious Wisdom is safe to use in all stages from conception to birth. Throughout pregnancy, your body goes through major changes physically and emotionally and it can take it’s toll on the body. Healing will help your body rebalance, while supporting your immune system to help your body stay in optimum health as your body prepares for birth. Healing can help ease some of the symptoms of nausea, tiredness, sickness etc. It will bring calm and relaxation to Mother and baby and is known to make baby wriggle with pleasure in the womb. Mothers have found that if they have regular treatments throughout pregnancy and after the birth of baby, they feel calmer and better able to handle the emotional upheaval of a newborn in their lives. It will also help accelerate your bodies recovery after birth. As Mother and baby are closely connected in the first 18 months and children are like sponges, they will instantly reap the benefits of Mother having regular healing treatments and will calm and peaceful, in response to the Mother feeling relaxed. Please advise on you are pregnancy or planning to conceive during your consultation as your treatment will be tailored to your individual needs.
Is Energy healing safe for children?
Energy healing is very safe for children. Children under 8 years often require a short session of 20-30 minutes. They don’t hold blockages from life events like adults and react very positively to energy as they are like sponges, soaking up the universal energy. Older children will find Reiki very beneficial for exam stress and anxiety and to boost confidence.
Reiki is amazing and you can still feel the benefits from a remote healing session. We do not need to be in the same country or time zone for Reiki to work.
If you’re unable to attend a Reiki appointment, we will have a consultation to find out how you would like Reiki to support you and then we will set up a time for the Reiki treatment. All that will be required is a picture of you, along with your full name. A remote session will work in a similar way to a healing session in person. At the agreed time, you will be asked to lie down in a relaxing environment, where you won’t be disturbed and to set the intention to receive the Reiki healing energy for your highest good. Distant healing sessions generally last approx. 30 mins.
How does distant healing work?
Distant healing works via intention; the practitioner ‘intends’ to send universal energy to your physical, emotional and spiritual body and the client’ intends’ to receive it.
One way to understand distant healing is to think in terms of electricity. Electricity is generated in the power station and then electricity is sent to homes via power lines. Quantum science is making huge advances, showing we are all connected and not separate physical bodies, as we once thought. Everything is energy and matter is essentially crystalized energy. Our bodies are made of energy that is continuously vibrating at different speeds, giving and receiving energy via energy waves. Distant healing is when energy is intentionally ‘sent’ across time and space via energy waves. The healer is simply channeling universal life force energy into your energy field via positive intention.
