About: Reiki

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a form of hands-on therapy. It is totally non-invasive and very effective. It is easy to learn and very relaxing and healing.

The word ‘Reiki’ (pronounced ray-kee) means universal energy.

Reiki is effective in treating absolutely anything! Pain, discomfort and stress are the most common reasons people want a Reiki treatment.

What can I expect during a Reiki treatment?

During treatments it is usually experienced as gentle warmth, it aids relaxation and promotes a sense of calmness.

After a simple introduction, clients are requested to lay face-up on a massage table. Shoes and coats may be removed, but the client remains fully clothed throughout the treatment. The biggest misconception surrounding Reiki is that I will ask you to lay fully naked on my treatment table and wave my arms around you and have light come out of them!

Typically, the practitioner will follow a series of ‘traditional’ hands positions, but this may be modified to suit the client’s health, age, mobility etc.

At the conclusion of the (usually) hour-long session, the client may be offered a glass of water. When appropriate, the Reiki practitioner may refer the client to other healthcare professionals for specialised treatments.

There are no contra-indications for Reiki treatments.

How many sessions would I need?

It is up to you and there is no 1 word answer. A lot of clients book regular Reiki treatments to keep their pain at bay or for general health and wellbeing.

Experience and Qualifications

Reiki Association members practice Reiki in a manner compatible with all belief systems.
From 2011, these are the “Reiki Association of WA’s”, Teaching Standards; if you are going to learn Reiki you should ensure your training meets these requirements.

Teacher Training

  • Should be at least a one year apprenticeship, and
  • Include participation in many Reiki 1 and Reiki 2 classes,
  • Based on clear agreement, which in part, precludes the new teacher from teacher training for at least 3 years. Teacher training may be offered after 3 years minimum Reiki 2 practice.

I received my Reiki 1 attunements over 30 years ago and have been a Reiki Master since 2009.

"My doctor told me I had IBS and that I had to just live with it and get on with it. My friend told me to go and see Rebecca. I didn't believe anything could be done but I thought, hey, why not?! I'm SO glad I went and saw her. I don't have any signs or symptoms of IBS now and her treatment didn't hurt or take years! Thank you Rebecca for giving me my life back."
