Reiki Sessions in Knaresborough

Reiki is a safe and gentle treatment that can support overall wellbeing and help with the management of health conditions. It is a complementary therapy that can work alongside other medical and energy treatments, promoting relaxation, reducing feelings of stress and creating a smoother flow of energy through the body. Reiki practitioners use their hands to channel energy, which can either be done with gentle touch or with hands hovering a few inches above the body.

Reiki was developed by Mikao Usui in the early 1900s in Japan. The word is an amalgamation of two Japanese words; rei, meaning “universal,” and ki, which is the vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Reiki has since been used all over the world, including in hospitals and hospices, to complement other forms of health treatments.

Reiki Practitioners

Sam Alexander-Vasey, Reiki Master Practitioner

Sam began her reiki training in 2019 in India, where she studied the first two levels of reiki in a hands on, practical programme that included offering and receiving many reiki sessions. This enabled her to immerse in the energy of reiki, honing her approach to the needs of many different people (& animals!)

She has since continued her training, becoming a Reiki Master Practitioner in 2023 within the Mikao Usui lineage. During sessions, Sam combines her knowledge and attunement from reiki with other complementary energy systems, including the meridians from Chinese Medicine and the Chakras from Yoga.

Kris Dudley, Reiki Master Practitioner

Kris began his reiki training in 2019 in Yorkshire. He has primarily trained in the Usui reiki lineage/method, using symbols, meditations, and intention, as well as standard hand positions, certifying as a Master Reiki practitioner in 2023.
