Part of learning some really valuable lessons in this life involve us learning how to interact with others, how to build relationships and who to build them with. Inevitably, this means we sometimes make choices which do not end well.

What is Reiki?

Before I had my first ever Reiki treatment, I had absolutely no idea what it was. My vague knowledge of it was that it was a bit mystical or ‘woo woo’ and was about laying on hands. I was sceptical and so never pursued having a treatment.

It’s strange, but as time went by ‘Reiki’ was something that popped up into conversations, with new people I met, on blogs or in articles, so I eventually booked a treatment.
