I am a qualified Reiki master/teacher and can offer both in person and distance healings. If you are in Brighton you can come to my ‘sanctuary’ which is in my home. The room has been set up according to Feng Shui principles and I energise it before each client arrives, so you can step into a space cleared and prepared just for you. The room receives a great deal of positive feedback; even just looking at the photo of it calms some people right down!
If you are too far away to come and lie on the couch, I also offer ‘sends’. These are healings sent from a distance, and they are not constrained by time or location. Usually I would send for three consecutive nights; the Reiki ‘kicks in’ as soon as your head hits the pillow and sinks in nicely while you sleep. A healing can make you feel a bit spacey so this is the best way if you’re busy during the day and can’t take twenty minutes out to sit quietly. (If you can then that can also be arranged. It’s about what suits you.)
Energy healing has been around for thousands of years; Reiki is a form of energy healing which was developed by Dr Mikao Usui in Japan in 1922. Pronounced ‘ray key’, it translates from Japanese as universal (‘rei’) energy (‘ki’), which is the energy that surrounds us and permeates us.
A Reiki master is simply someone who has been attuned by another master to a level where they can pass on healing and attunements themselves. It is not necessary to believe in it for it to work, and Reiki is not connected with any faith or religion. Because it is universal energy, Reiki can also be used to heal plants and animals. I have even been known to use it on the appliances in my home and also my car, which responds beautifully to it!
Reiki can be helpful for many ailments, from anxiety, depression, stress and sleeping problems, to physical ailments and conditions. It does not replace traditional medicine but can work in harmony with it. It can also be helpful for balancing and relaxing you if you feel you need some time out.
I have included some Frequently Asked Questions below, but please do contact me if you have different ones!
How long is a session?
A hands on session takes an hour, including time for talking if you like and also for allowing the healing to sink in a bit before you go back to your day. Sends take me twenty minutes to do but you do not need to be involved in this unless I am sending to you during the day, in which case you will need to take some time out to sit quietly for the twenty minutes.
How does it work?
As a healing system the practitioner becomes a channel for the universal energy, sending it into the client, where it balances the chakras and clears blockages in the meridiens, thereby enabling the body to heal itself. I like to think of Reiki as the energy of pure unconditional love, from which we all came and to which we all return. It does not use the practitioner’s energy at all; I am simply a conduit as I have been attuned to a frequency where I can access it and pass it on.
How much does it cost?
One hour hands on session: £20
Sends: suggested donation of £5 for three, or whatever form of exchange suits you best. To make it easier I’ve installed this handy button below. (You do not need to have an account to pay via Paypal. If you would prefer to pay another way please contact me.)
You remove only your shoes and lie on the couch (or sit in a chair if you prefer). I then activate the energy in my hands and send you the Reiki for at least forty minutes. You need do nothing but relax! Afterwards we can discuss it if you like, but this is in no way compulsory. The Reiki energy flows to where it is needed most, soothing pain and rebalancing the system, and helping the body to activate its own healing ability. It is entirely for you, so we conduct the session in whatever way makes you the most at ease.
How many sends or sessions will I need?
That depends on why you are having the Reiki. For some people it’s like a massage; a treat to themselves and a time out to relax that they wouldn’t take at home. (It will also help to heal and balance any issues anyway.) For others it’s to help with a specific issue; acute conditions can be healed very quickly, whereas long term issues can take longer. Everyone is different, and we work according to what you need as an individual.
“Wow….that was tremendous!” ~ SB
“For me Reiki with Tara is at the same time relaxing and healing. It has a feeling of wholeness and I would recommend it to anyone who feels in need of this.” ~ HL
“I’ve been getting remote Reiki sends from Tara for several months now, and I’ve definitely noticed a difference. For the first few months I was regularly having issues with my stomach right after having the sends. That might sound like a not-very-good thing… but I believe (after conferring with Tara) that this was energy moving out of my system that needed to go. It doesn’t happen anymore so it seems the Reiki did what it needed to do there. I also notice that I sleep really fabulously during the three nights that I receive sends. I have it on my calendar to request Reiki from Tara every month & don’t see that changing in the near future. I’m so grateful for them, and for her!!!” ~ AS
