Hi, I'm Kate,
Reiki Master Teacher
Founder of Little School of Reiki.
I truly believe that there are no coincidences in life, only synchronicities. Whatever breadcrumbs led you to stumble upon my website, I am grateful that our paths have crossed and am excited to connect with you!
Over the years I have seen from my own personal experience that learning Reiki has the ability to deeply impact and transform lives, when learnt and practiced in a supportive environment.
Every day, things happen that unbalance your nervous system.
REIKI CAN HELP TO BRING YOU BACK TO A STATE OF BALANCE.
How Does Reiki Work?
An unseen life-force flows through you, me, everyone and everything.
When this is free-flowing, you feel calm, creative, healthy and resilient - you feel truly alive!
When this flow gets disrupted, it affects you physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Every time you experience a stressful situation that you are not able to fully process or heal at the time, this causes stagnant energy to build up, creating blockages that slow down the flow of this life-force energy.
These blockages affect us in different, and sometimes unexpected ways.
They could manifest as digestive issues, physical aches and pains, or fatigue. They could leave you feeling anxious; lacking clarity and focus; or on the deepest level, feeling misaligned with the core of who you really are.
Reiki helps to clear stagnant energy that has built up around and within the body, bringing you back to a state of balance.
Coming back to balance can feel like a fog has cleared, or a heavy weight has lifted.
It is not unusual for people’s facial expressions to look softer; their skin to appear smoother; and their eyes to look brighter.
After receiving Reiki, people often report feeling a deep sense of clarity, calm and inner peace.
When you feel balanced, you function better, and when you feel better it becomes so much easier to process stress in a healthier, more productive way, and bounce back from whatever challenges life may throw your way.
Reiki involves the simple act of a practitioner laying their hands either on, or above your body, and allowing Reiki energy to flow through them, to areas in need of re-balancing.
Reiki is just as effective when given in-person as it is when given remotely, by distance.
What Does Reiki Feel Like?
While receiving Reiki you may experience moments of insight, memory flashbacks, feelings of warmth and tingling, or a blissful, dream-like state of deep relaxation. Individual responses vary greatly, and often differ from session to session.
Safe & Complementary
Reiki healing is a complementary therapy that can safely be used alongside medical treatment. This gentle technique is suitable for all ages and any state of health, from a newborn baby to the frail and elderly, pregnant mothers and surgical patients. Unlike most other forms of hands-on therapy, there are virtually no cautions or contraindications to treatment.
You Don't Need to Believe!
It is not necessary to believe in Reiki for it to work - once you experience its effects, I guarantee you won’t need any convincing!
HEALING MEANS TO BE WHOLE
Our bodies are made up of four layers: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
When we separate these layers or emphasise one more than the other, we feel unbalanced, constantly yearning for that missing piece. Through Reiki, we re-balance and connect all of these layers.
Benefits of Reiki
When your body is balanced you feel strong, healthy and relaxed.
Deep Rest & Relaxation
During a Reiki session, your body will drop into a deep state of rest and restoration.
Reiki activates the parasympathetic nervous system, which relaxes the muscles, slows down the breath and heart-rate, and turns on the body’s natural healing mechanisms, aiding cell repair, reducing inflammation and fatigue.
Although Reiki is not a substitute for sleep, the restorative benefits of 1 hour of Reiki can be equivalent to 4 hours of sleep!
Regulates your circadian rhythm and melatonin production, encouraging a better quality sleep cycle.
Detoxifies & Improves Digestion
Reiki assists your body to filter out and rid itself of harmful toxins that accumulate over time. This helps to regulate the digestive system and relieve symptoms of IBS, bloating, constipation and diarrhoea.
Aids Pain Relief & Physical Healing
Relieves physical pain and tension, and accelerates recovery from injuries and illness.
When your mind is balanced you think clearly, calmly and make decisions with ease.
Reduces Stress & Anxiety
One of the reasons that Reiki is recognised for being such an effective treatment for stress and anxiety is because it relaxes the nervous system.
When feelings of stress and overwhelm subside, your mind will feel clearer, calmer, and you will find it easier to stay focused on daily tasks.
Reiki helps to reduce symptoms of depression, leaving you feeling energised, uplifted, lighter and brighter.
When your emotions are balanced you feel stable, less reactive, and more accepting.
Because your energy-body operates on a subconscious level, Reiki has the ability to bypass the conscious mind and access the subconscious psyche, where your unprocessed emotions get stored.
Reiki can help to shine a light on behaviour or thought-patterns that may be affecting your relationships and holding you back from living the happy, healthy life you deserve. Bringing awareness to these unserving patterns is the first step towards healing and transforming them.
Reiki supports the release of these unprocessed emotions, helping to positively shift the way you think, feel and function in the world.
When your spirit is balanced you feel more connected to yourself, others and the world around you.
During a Reiki treatment, your brain enters a delta brainwave state, which resembles what it feels like to be on the verge of being awake and asleep. The conscious experience of this can feel blissfully meditative, uniquely surreal and incredibly heart-opening.
You will become more open to receive insights and better able to gain clarity around situations you may be struggling to consciously understand or make decisions about. Subtle synchronicities may start to appear and you will feel better equipped to embrace opportunities as they arise.
Reiki can initiate profound instantaneous healing, or you may notice more gradual, subtle effects over time. This can lead to transformative life-changing mindset shifts, a greater sense of acceptance, inner peace, and kindness towards ourselves and others.
"I am still amazed by how strongly I felt the energy flowing through my body. "
I had a Reiki session with Kate and I can deeply recommend it to everyone! It was just wonderful, and I am still amazed by how strongly I felt the energy flowing throughout my body. Even if I can’t explain how Reiki works, it is an experience I would like to invite everyone to try. Kate created a perfect atmosphere with her warm and welcoming appearance. It was really lovely to meet her!
