“Reiki is, hands down, the most relaxing treatment and the easiest class you’ll ever take”
Why do people go for Reiki?
By reducing stress and facilitating deep relaxation, Reiki is a restorative experience which helps you feel better and supports your well-being physically, emotionally and mentally. As Reiki supports all medical treatments, people have sought Reiki for wide range of concerns, including:
- Chronic pain
- Heart disease
- Neurodegenerative disorders
- Autism/developmental delays
- Crohn’s Disease
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Traumatic brain injury
- Emotional illness, including mild psychosis
- Fatigue syndromes
- End-of-life care and bereavement
What happens during a Reiki treatment?
“I can lie here forever,” my clients often remark at the end of a Reiki treatment. When I see them smiling and visibly relaxed, I feel much gratitude for my Reiki practice.
Each Reiki healing session varies according to your current needs. To give you an idea, all treatments are offered in line with this approach:
Your comfort is my priority.
You will be resting on a massage table, fully clothed. If you prefer, you can also receive Reiki seated on a chair.
You will lie on your back, either with support or in a modified position to suit your comfort. The treatment will begin at your head, followed by the torso and limbs, down to your feet. If you are able to rest on your stomach (I have supports to ensure your comfort), I will also lay hands on your back.
Reiki is a therapy based on light touch.
I place my hands lightly in a series of hand positions. There is no massage or manipulation of the tissues.
Reiki treatment is completely safe and non-intrusive.
Because there is no manipulation, just a gentle contact, Reiki can be applied where other touch therapies are deemed unsuitable.
Research in North America, Europe and Australia has shown that Reiki is a balancing and empowering modality which assists in many situations. If you have a medical condition, Reiki is safe and non-intrusive. It does not interfere with any treatment or interact with any medication. By reducing stress and facilitating deep relaxation, Reiki is a restorative experience which helps you feel better and supports your medical treatment.
Reiki Treatment Options
Treatments are available by appointment in Claremont on weekdays and Saturdays. A range of treatment options are available to suit your specific needs. Distant treatment is also available at same rates.
Traditionally, multiple treatments are recommended for many concerns, including acute and chronic conditions.
I had an amazing experience as part of Ariel’s reiki share on Saturday. I had a breast cancer removed about 10 days previously and as part of the reiki share, we had a “group zap” where I was asked if I’d like a particular part of my body to receive Reiki. I asked for the scar on my left breast to receive Reiki but not by direct touch as I had only had the bandage and steri strips removed the previous day and was feeling very vulnerable and scared of pain. What I experienced was a sensation of the skin being stitched but instead of pain, it was with tenderness and nurturing. It was truly energetic healing. I felt quite teary, not from sadness but from the sensation of being supported and cared for. Since then I have had no need for, and therefore stopped, my pain relief.
I cannot say enough positive things about Ariel and my Reiki experiences with her. Ariel ensures every session is a rewarding one which leaves me feeling happier and more balanced. The Reiki workshop was fun, informative and inspiring. Ariel provides plenty of written information to refer to after the workshop and is always happy to answer any questions and help in any way she can. As a vet nurse with 15 years’ experience, and a wildlife conservationist, I am excited to be able to use Reiki, anywhere, anytime to assist patients and animals in need. I will never forget the first time I gave Reiki to a puppy who was wriggling around before his X-ray to put him at ease. When I put my hand on his head he let out a big sigh and relaxed! Last weekend, when my colleague and I were changing bandages for a dog with really severe injuries, she also let out a great sigh as soon I began Reiki and we could tell that it was helping to relax her. Personally, my Reiki training and coaching with Ariel has fast-tracked changes in my life on many levels. I also look forward to my daily self-treatments because I actually experience feelings of joy receiving Reiki. It is amazing.

Dear Ariel, I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for all your support and encouragement as my buddy and healing companion. You have shown me a whole new world of care and compassion. Your level of knowledge and background as a trainer enables you to communicate a heartfelt sincerity to all who meet you. I feel totally at peace and relaxed after each of your Reiki healing sessions. I am really looking forward to my Second Degree Reiki workshop. And so much has changed since we started working together. The inquiry and exercises from our coaching sessions have helped me to feel more empowered and I am taking action to grow my business, very exciting! Finally, I would also like to say how much I enjoy your Reiki share days where we share and experience different ways of applying energy. I always enjoy the extra boost of Reiki at these sessions not to mention the great times with like-minded friends when we share our potluck. Please know Ariel that the world is a better place for having you in it.
