MOBILE IN ABERDEEN AND ABERDEENSHIRE
Enjoy a relaxing, gentle but powerful reiki healing session. You will be fully clothed , lying on a massage/reiki table covered by a blanket with soft music playing in the background in a relaxing and comfortable setting. The practitioner will draw in the energy with the intention to heal and the reiki energy does its work. The session will last anything from 30-50 minutes.
Mobile Reiki treatment
If you are unable to come to me, I am completely mobile and can bring my massage/reiki table to your own home. All you need is a space for me to set up in where we wouldn't be disturbed for an hour.
Mindfulness and Compassion training
Mind and heart training is at the core of practicing mindfulness. Learn how to notice our continual thinking and how our habitual thought patterns affect our ability to function in day to day situations. Learning to utilise our inner healing tools as a means to benefit us during times of heightened anxiety or stress. We will look at the evolution of our brains, some philosophy and the emerging field of neuroscience surrounding the benefits of mindfulness and compassion training, and also participate in meditation practice's.

Reiki 1st degree course
This is a 2 day training course which will be carried out in my treatment room. A light lunch is provided on both days. The course will start around 10.30am and finish around 3.30pm each day. You will be given a 1st degree manual and suggested reading material to take away with you. I prefer to keep the class sizes small and intimate as this can be a very moving experience for some students. The attunement to the Reiki energy is carried out in four traditional sacred ceremonies, which has been passed on directly through Dru Usui lineage. Taking your first reiki degree will allow you to use the reiki energy for self healing and healing plants, animals and others whenever you touch with the intention of healing. For more information about the course please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.
Reiki 2nd degree course
The second reiki degree constitutes a deeper commitment to your reiki journey. Again, this is a 2 day training course which will be carried out in my treatment room. A light lunch is provided on both days. The course will start around 10.30am and finish around 3.30pm each day. You will be given a 2nd degree manual and suggested reading material to take away with you. I prefer to keep the class sizes small and intimate as this can be a very moving experience for some students. The second degree attunements to the Reiki energy are carried out in four traditional sacred ceremonies, which has been passed on directly through Dru Usui lineage, there is an increase in power of the reiki energy and you may feel ready for some major lifestyle changes as there is frequently a quantum leap in instinctive awareness. You are now able to send distant healing energy and give reiki treatments on a mental and emotional level. You will be required to keep a journal and provide case studies.
