Reiki helped me

“I turned to reiki af­ter di­vorce and be­reave­ment.”

– Ali­son, 37

“I had my first reiki ses­sion with Louise Cro­ker af­ter sev­eral years of feel­ing sad and alone. I’d sep­a­rated from my hus­band in 2012, my mother passed away in 2014, then in 2015 I started to be­come emo­tion­ally drained through my job work­ing with preg­nant women with sub­stance abuse is­sues. The first ses­sion was amaz­ing – within min­utes of Louise plac­ing her hands on me I felt a spi­ral of en­ergy shift from the top of my head through my body and out through my right foot. It was like a long-over­due ad­just­ment and I left feel­ing like a weight had been lifted. I’ve had monthly reiki ses­sions for the past year, and find it so restora­tive and peace­ful. I tend to drift in and out of con­scious­ness, and might feel buzzing in cer­tain chakras within my en­ergy field. It’s re­ally helped with ac­cep­tance to­wards my ex and co-par­ent­ing with him. It has also helped me be­come kinder to my­self and model good self-care to my chil­dren.”

“Reiki helped my back pain and work stress.”

– An­nie, 59

“I’ve been in­ter­ested in spir­i­tu­al­ity for many years, so I’m very open-minded about reiki. I see Sam Av­ery sev­eral times a year, and she’s helped me with lower back pain and work­place bul­ly­ing. I had about six dif­fi­cult man­agers in a row, but I find reiki helps re­store my en­er­getic bal­ance, and when I’m in bal­ance, peo­ple don’t tend to at­tack me – on a sub­con­scious level they don’t see me as a door­mat to tar­get. Af­ter a reiki ses­sion, my back pain is re­solved for some time, and if it re­turns I know there’s an un­der­ly­ing is­sue I need to deal with. Dur­ing ses­sions, I might ex­pe­ri­ence warmth, tin­gling in my hands and feet, and some­times my stom­ach starts gur­gling, which is just the en­ergy com­ing through. Af­ter­wards, I’m blissed out and feel like ev­ery­thing is right with the world and back in bal­ance.”
