What is Reiki?

The Japanese word Reiki means “universal energy”. It is a term used to describe a natural system to help bring about an improved sense of well being and a positive feeling of spiritual renewal or emotional uplift. Reiki’s natural energy is powerful yet gentle and can prove helpful when experiencing periods of emotional anxiety and physical pain and discomfort.  The Reiki I offer is Usui Reiki.  

Spiritual Lineage - Usui Reiki

The origins of Reiki could be said to be as old as human kind. Throughout human history there have been those who were known for their healing touch. This is something that we know little about and consider a gift. It is something we do automatically - if we hurt ourselves the first thing we do it to put our hands over the pain and rub it!  The particular form of this gift that we know of as the Usui System of Reiki Healing has its origins in the person of Mikao Usui, a Japanese gentleman who lived in the late 1800's and died in 1926.

As a teacher, he was challenged by his students about his unwavering faith in the reality of a healing force. It became his personal quest to be able to source this power as a help to mankind. Through years of scholarship, studying sacred scriptures of Christian and Buddhist origins, as well as living a life of personal prayer and meditation, Mikao Usui experienced a spiritual awakening or spiritual transmission that resulted in the creation of the system of healing we have received.  Today those of us who offer Usui Reiki can follow our lineage directly back to Mikao Usui.


“Fiona is wonderful. I had 6 Reiki sessions as I neared completion of treatment for Breast Cancer (I started Reiki during my radiotherapy sessions). What Fiona manages to do is wonderful and inspiring.  Initially, I was slightly sceptical (scientist/ Toxicologist by training, with a "what is Reiki really all about mentality") but I kept an open mind - and after the first session - that was it, I knew this unexplainable empowering "something" was going to help. I've now completed my 6th Reiki session with Fiona and feel like a better and different person, Reiki opens something up in your heart and mind, creating a sense of calm and greater understanding. We are loved, we should open our eyes and see the beauty in the little things, and most importantly - listen to your inner voice. She/ He is usually right.  I would strongly recommend Reiki to anyone struggling; be that anxiety, depression, ill health or generally feeling "meh, don't know what's the matter with me, but something is a bit off and I'm feeling low".  Go with an open mind, accept what is and see how Reiki can help, Fiona is a wonderful healer!”  Stacey C, Andover

"One of the best night's sleeps I've had in a long time - just from one session." Louise, Andover 

" I had tried Reiki previously and wasn't impressed.  However, my session with Fiona was much more relaxing, calming and I came away with a real sense of peace" Adele, Stockbridge.

"As a Reiki practitioner myself, it was nice to receive a treatment from a fellow Reiki practitioner and I enjoyed my session with Fiona." Emma, Weyhill.

Thank you Fiona for the most wonderful, unrushed and relaxing Reiki treatment. I still feel so calm and will definitely recommend.- Reiki Practitioner, Faith 

I had a wonderful experience, so relaxing and enlightening. I will definitely be asking for another session! - Emma, Portsmouth
