Reiki Natural Healing

Reiki (ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning “universal life energy” and it is used to describe a system of natural healing.  We live in a world of energy that nourishes and maintains all living things.  When this energy flows uninterrupted there is balance and harmony within and around us and we experience a sense of well being.

As running water smoothes the jagged edges of a rock until it is small enough to roll away, Reiki flows to the areas of need, soothing pain and supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Sophia Russell MFHT is an attuning master of the Usui Shiki Ryoho system of natural healing offering hands on treatment, distance healing, teaching and attunement.  Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive treatment and there is no need to remove any clothing.

  • Is deeply relaxing

  • Relieves stress

Reiki Attunement

Reiki attunement is an investment in your well being and self-development.  It is simple to learn and no specialist medical knowledge or specialist equipment is required.  Click Book Online to reserve your place or email if you need more information or want to propose a date for training.  If you would like to meet me before you enrol, please book yourself in for a Free Discovery Call.  Choosing a Reiki master is a bit like choosing a place to live or a community so it is wise to be sure!

Sophia is a loving and patient tutor whose years of experience and compassion makes everyone feel able to open up in complete comfort and safety" . K Marsh, Brighton.
