my reiki journey began on a solo yoga retreat in thailand and while I was open to the idea of connecting to body energy I was still a little apprehensive. little did I know that this would be the beginning of a journey of fusing careers in fashion sportswear and energy therapy, of becoming aware of my place on this planet and of what I could possibly do to help to encourage a healthy path for all.
I initially studied to become a nutritionist and found that I had more questions about our emotions and their effects on our body’s energy systems and overall health than my nutrition course could answer. my nutrition studies gave me a well placed grounding in body physiology and health issues, and nutrition is an essential pillar to good health but without a fresh flow of energy throughout the body, even the healthiest diet will find it hard to enable the body to truly thrive.
After re-training in reiki I immediately felt the physical evidence that there is an energy force we cannot see, yet we can all connect to. I practise self-reiki within my daily meditation and find it a comfort to begin each day feeling a personal connection to a wider world.
Outside of my reiki and fashion design work I help out at theshalalondon.com yoga studio in south London and practise yoga, meditation and love my daily runs in the local park. A daily immersion into nature (and listening to a favourite disco track!) is the best tonic for gaining perspective, shaking out any stagnant energy and raising the body’s vibration for the day ahead.
I have trained under reiki master torsten a. lange in both the western and japanese usui systems of reiki level 1 and level 2.
the western system focuses on the physical aspects of a hands-on healing, with the japanese system more focused on the meditation and personal spiritual development that reiki encourages.
the usui system of reiki is recognised and used by the nhs.
I am a practitioner member of the reiki academy london:
