Reiki is an ancient healing system redeveloped in Japan in the late 19th century by Dr.Mikao Usui. It translates as Universal (Rei) Life Force, Life Energy (Ki). It is this energy or Ki, the energy found in all matter and all beings, that is directed through the practitioner’s hands to produce healing effects, in a safe and non-intrusive way. It is gentle yet powerful without using pressure, manipulation or massage; it provides the recipient with whatever energy he or she needs to aid recovery – or simply to promote harmony in mind, body and spirit, helping recharge, realign, and rebalance their energy.
Please note that there are no religious connotations within Reiki.
What happens during a treatment?
The session can last up to one hour. Reiki treatments are received fully clothed. The practitioner will place their hands on different parts of the body or just above it, to direct the healing energy to all the vital organs. The whole body is treated, with emphasis on specific problem areas.
What are the benefits of Reiki Healing?
Reiki can be very effective for treating pain, depression, anxiety and emotional problems. After a Reiki healing session, a feeling of deep relaxation and peace is commonly experienced. It can also have an immediate effect in energy levels, immune response and pain relief. Because it is gentle and non-invasive, it can be used on people of any age and medical condition and alongside any other type of therapy; this is why Reiki is invaluable in particular in the improvement of the quality of life and the ability to cope in sufferers of chronic and terminal diseases. You do not need to feel unwell to receive this treatment, however, as it is a means of maintaining harmony within the whole body.

Kirsten van Nispen
I qualified as a Holistic Massage Therapist with Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork in
2009. Since then, I have expanded my knowledge and experience by doing several courses,
qualifying in Hot Stone Fusion in 2010 with Jing Massage School in Brighton and Hands
Free Massage with Darian Pritchard. Holistic massage benefits the mind, body and spirit. I
have been running a successful massage practice for 13 years. I use different techniques
such as hand-free, cupping, hot stones, and deep-tissue to offer a treatment that suits my
client’s individual needs. This allows me to be of most benefit to the client.
Since qualifying as a massage therapist, I felt I needed to pursue my other interests to be
able to help my clients on a more profound level and that is where nutrition and health came
in. So, I trained with the Institute for Health Sciences in Dublin a few years ago and I have
been a Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach. As a Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach, I work with a wide variety of clients with various goals and needs. This could be anything from weight loss,
increase energy levels, and cravings to women’s hormones. Together we will set up a
personalized nutrition and lifestyle plan to help you achieve your health and wellbeing goals.
I am also a Level III Reiki practitioner. Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and
relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based
on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be
alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stressed,
and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Over the years my love for
Reiki has grown and these days I help many clients through Reiki on a physical, emotional,
and spiritual level.
