Jikiden Reiki®

Shin-shin Kaizen Usui Reiki Ryoho (Usui treatment method to improve body and mind)

Mysterious or miraculous energy that fills the forest

Jikiden Reiki offers a unique insight into the original teachings of Mikao Usui free from western influence


Reiki is a system of healing from Japan founded by Mikao Usui at the end of the 18th century. It is a gentle and yet powerful, non-invasive, subtle healing modality used widely now in both mainstream healthcare and private practice. It is a method for facilitating healing in the physical body and also very effective for mental and emotional issues , habits fears and phobias

How does Reiki work ?

Energy surrounds us and everything is made from it including us. Energy is much the same and all matter , including the “stuff” we are made of is simply energy vibrating at different frequencies. Whether we believe it or not, everyone is said to have the ability to do this thing called energy healing. It is not only people with a special gift who are able to give healing to another. This ability is part of us. With just a little training we can all enhance our natural ability to tap into this energy to use for ourselves. If our energy is blocked, it stagnates and illness , disease and injury may occur. By clearing our body of toxins and allowing the energy to flow normally, the body’s own natural healing abilities will be enhanced.
Practitioners of Reiki subscribe to the idea that where there is disharmony between the body, mind and emotions with over-work, poor diet, lack of exercise, unbalanced rigid emotions, rigid thought patterns, fear and guilt that there will be dis-ease in the body.

What are the benefits of Jikiden Reiki ?

One off Reiki sessions can be a wonderful therapeutic experience, however Reiki has a cumulative effect and when given regularly can :

  • Encourage relaxation bringing balance to both mind and emotions.
  • Enhance overall wellbeing , supporting positive life choices including balance in diet, exercise , work and leisure and reduce the need for stimulants like alcohol and tobacco
  • Help with addictions , habits ,fears and phobias
  • Greatly reduce levels of stress and promote a calmer response to life events
  • Manage pain symptoms and emotional stress in chronic illness
  • Reduce stress related symptoms for example IBS , insomnia , headaches
  • Improve immunity by helping the bodies natural flow of blood and lymph and the release of toxins

Reiki works effectively alongside orthodox healthcare and natural remedies, expanding treatment options. Reiki’s gentle energy is easily adapted to most medical conditions and may be used safely by people of all ages, including pregnant mothers, new-borns, surgical patients, the frail and the elderly, in any situation.

Note: Reiki is being used in various settings including private practice, complementary therapy centres, GP surgeries, hospitals, hospices, cancer support groups, post-operative recovery, drug rehabilitation, prisons, HIV/AIDS centres, and in the care of the elderly.

What to expect

Physical Health Treatments Jikiden Reiki practitioners work on the body using their hands to sense where there are toxins and are able to facilitate the body’s own natural healing abilities . There are many practitioners who use a hands off approach however this was not how Reiki was originally taught and practised in Japan . Jikiden Reiki practitioners are able to give focused treatments on areas of the body where they have identified the build up of Byosin (toxins) These toxins are released over time, aided by kekko massage which is given at the end of each treatment . Kekko is a short vigorous massage given whilst the client is clothed . It helps with the movement of energy blood and lymph to the excretory organs . The number of physical treatments clients will need varies. The more chronic the illness the more time it can take for the body to regain homeostsis (balance). You will be taken through a physical health assessment prior to treatment to ensure the sessions are tailored to your health needs.

Psyhological /Emotional Treatments Jikiden Reiki practitioners use a treatment method to help with mental and emotional issues. This could be something minor, for example a habitual trait such as procrastination or more significantly anxiety , low self esteem trauma and other psychological issues that can prevent us from fully engaging in life . This treatment is not the same as a physical treatment where byosen is sensed in the body . The treatment works directly on the unconscious part of us and can help clients move beyond limiting beliefs and patterns of behaviour.

Your Reiki session will last up to 90 minutes . You remain fully clothed with your shoes off . You will be made comfortable on a massage table. If for any reason you do not like laying down, Reiki can be given in a seated position. Any areas where you do not like to be touched will be agreed prior. It is important to remember that Reiki does not diagnose or prescribe. The underlying assumption is that the body knows how to heal itself and Reiki works with the source of all imbalance.


Leanne’s hands are magic, she gave me reiki when I had a terrible headache, I was just so happy after a session with Leanne because it had gone… I felt so relaxed and headache free…amazing” (Sue, OT and mental health well-being coordinator)

I had an absolutely mind-blowing session with Leanne recently. I had lower-back pain and I was feeling a bit low on energy. Those symptoms have completely disappeared but even more than that, I have become more focused, calmer, more positive and happier than I have felt in a long time. Leanne works deeply and intuitively. She knows exactly what you need to clear emotional and physical blocks without you having to say anything. She connects with you on a deeper level. I would wholeheartedly recommend Leanne for massage, reiki and reflexology. She’s an amazing healer and a beautiful person!!!
(Kia, holistic practitioner/life coach)

I had the great opportunity to meet Leanne and her family  during a holiday time in Italy in a Agritourism/farm managed by a common friends of us.

I’ve always been interested in complementary therapies but I never had the opportunity to experience Reiki From the first session I could feel the healing vibration of her hands and her  natural-born healer gift. Her loving, caring and listening approach make the experience unique.In three sessions she helped me to release some  unhealthy belief system pattern that had affected  me for a long time. I recommend the Reiki work with Leanne if you need help with pain or a stubborn traumatic memory  that you can’t let go of easily. It’s a powerful  experience of stress-relief (Enrico Engineer IT consultant)
