Reiki is a Japanese word representing Universal Life energy, the energy around us and within us. It is a way of activating, directing and applying natural energy for the promotion of healing, balance and wholeness. It is an holistic creative energy and therefore useful for preventing imbalance, assisting the body`s natural healing powers and maintaining the rebalance as a state of well-being.

It can be used most effectively as a self help technique as well as for others for the release of stress and relaxation and to restore the vital energy lost in daily life.

Reiki is a simple and powerful process. The channelled energy flows through the hands to wherever it is needed in the body; stress is released, there is deep relaxation and a feeling of profound well-being for the receiver and the practitioner. Reiki is a vehicle to channel love, "the most powerful healer". It opens the mind and the spirit to the causes of disease and pain and reinforces the body`s ability to heal itself. It supports and enhances all medical treatment and can be used effectively by medical and paramedical professions.

Today, there is a growing awareness that each individual bears responsibility for their own health and ultimately the fate of our planet. In the practice of Reiki, we allow the Universe to express itself through us. Reiki helps fill the need of individuals and of the planet as a whole, to be in balance and harmony with the Universal Life Force. It minimises the senses of helplessness and powerlessness when faced with disease and crisis situations. "when I feel whole it is easy to love myself. When I find that place in myself, it is also the part of me that is able to love each human being as part of myself".

Individual treatment takes one to one and a half hours. It requires no more than the recipient wearing comfortable clothes and dedicating that time to and for themselves. The Reiki 1st Degree course is usually divided into four parts, generally over a weekend, and consists of a gradual re-alignment of the healing channels and the practical application to give a full body treatment to the self and others.

The Reiki 2nd Degree is usually a course for those who have learned Reiki 1 and experienced its power in their lives. The course teaches Absent Healing of people, places, situations, animals etc., and also a deeper level of Reiki that works on the mental and emotion level from where imbalances begin before manifesting in the body as a disease.

In Reiki you are given the gift of being awakened.

The Usui system of Reiki evolved from the experience and dedication of Dr. Mikao Usui, a Christian Professor of Theology who lived in Japan in the last century. Through extensive travels, research and meditation, he developed a healing system based on ancient teachings in Sanskrit. He spent the rest of his life practising and teaching Reiki.

The Usui system of Reiki continues to be taught by Reiki Masters who are trained in the original traditions and whose professional and personal lives are committed to Reiki. It is also practised by their dedicated students who experience the power of pure Life Force in their lives and wish to share their well-being with others.

I no longer practice as a midwife. Although trained in traditional western medicine, I have, for some years been interested in eastern philosophies and practicises.

I also have a keen interest in complementary medicine and have received treatments in Hypnotherapy, Reiki, Acupuncture, Aromatherapy Massage and McTimoney Chiropractic. I am also a qualified Reiki level 1 practitioner. Reiki is an ancient Japanese form of hands on healing. I plan to take Reiki Level 2 in 2002. For more information on Reiki click here.

I have been dowsing for several years and began by dowsing for my family and friends. I am self taught and have a high success rate. As previously stated, I gave birth to my first baby in July 2001 and used my dowsing skills and reiki for my pregnancy, labour and delivery. I had a very smooth and successful home delivery, with no intervention, for which I dowsed.

I am married to James Middleton who is a practising Hypnotherapist, Reiki Master and teacher, and also proprietor of a successful company selling hypnotherapy tapes, the tapes were featured in October 2001, in an article published in the womens magazine "Bella". The tapes were voted joint first. He also practises dowsing. You can visit his website at
