HOVER HERE ...Why we are Great >


This training has changed my life... put me on the right path and set me up for success...


When looking for a Reiki Master it was of very high importance to me to find someone that was IICT/Reiki accredited. Immediately Frances stood out as the perfect choice.

From our very first conversation over the phone Frances made me feel comfortable as she was very warm and friendly and easy to connect with.

Having the first Reiki course as a one on one with Frances meant that I was receiving very specific training that was tailored to my needs. I was able to ask questions and go over anything that I needed clarification on. This training has changed my life. It has put me on the right path and has set me up for success in my own career and life in general.

I thoroughly enjoyed all my training sessions with Frances and always find her to be so very professional, knowledgeable and authentic. She has a way with people so you always feel comfortable and the training is delivered in a very enjoyable manner.

The regular ongoing support that Frances provides to her Reiki students with monthly catch up sessions is an integral part of developing her students knowledge and helping them develop their skills. Frances always shares invaluable information, techniques and new ideas with her students to help them develop their skills. From the very beginning Frances has always made herself available when I needed advice or clarification throughout my journey.

I trust Frances and have since recommended her to my family and friends and they too can not speak highly enough of Frances and her abilities to provide guidance and share information in a warm and easy to understand manner.

To date Frances continues to exceed my expectations and I feel so very blessed to have her in my life as a teacher and a friend.

Thank you Frances for playing such an important role in my life.

The 3 Levels Of Reiki


SHODEN - Level 1

Japanese Translation:  Beginning Teachings


Shoden teaches how to practice healing the self and the basics about helping others. At this level the student is heading out on the path to self-discovery, this is just the beginning


OKUDEN - Level 2

Japanese Translation:  Inner Teachings


Okuden is where students learn three mantras and three symbols that aid in focusing the energy. At this level, you discover your hidden inner qualities such as your Earth, Heaven, and Heart energy. There is the opportunity to develop a professional treatment practice from these teachings.



Japanese Translation:  Mystery Teachings


Shinpiden focuses on personal development and teaches the student how to perform attunements. At this level, you move into discovering more about the mysteries of life. How you relate to yourself and the universe. This can be practiced for the rest of your life and is always a personal practice which can develop into a professional teaching practice if you so desire.







There are also deeper philosophical understandings that are taught at each level, which will be explained in more details with the appropriate levels.  


Reiki is not religious.  Being attuned to Reiki does not entail any conversion or adoption of spiritual beliefs or practices from any religion or a particular set of beliefs.  There are principles shared that come from Buddhism teachings, these are offered only in the light of choice and free will and does not require any adoption of this dogma.

Reiki and other energy healing modes will harmonize with most spiritual belief systems that allow for the existence of energy work that work with free will and ethical practices that require permission at all times.

So what actually is reiki?

Reiki is truly a gift that keeps on giving.  It utilises a profound energy healing system that assists in personal growth, healing, stimulation, and empowerment that will take your life to new heights.  It brings awareness to your soul’s journey, healing on all levels of consciousness, mind, body and spirit.  An awakening often occurs following attunement to Reiki, allowing an opening of love and gentleness to flow into your life. 


Often called " hands-on healing" the practitioner gently lays their hands on a person, if permission is given, who remains fully clothed and all touching is done in an ethical consciously aware way.  There is no inappropriate touching of private regions, and in fact, the whole treatment can be given "hands off" if required.


Reiki energy is then transmitted through the practitioner to the recipient.  Reiki is a pure energy consciousness that delivers what is needed, often resulting in feelings and sensations that are uplifting and cleansing, making one feel much lighter after a treatment.


Traditional Reiki is a safe, gentle, effective and holistic practice that brings joy back into one’s life.


The workshops are held in a therapeutic setting, allowing the students to experience Reiki in both the giving and receiving of energy, while under the guidance of an experienced Reiki Master. 


This is a safe practice designed to bring harmony back into one’s life and includes ongoing support through Reiki practice days and Reiki share days.  (WE HOLD REGULAR SHARE DAYS AT OUR CLINIC, TIMETABLE CAN BE OBTAINED BY ASKING)


Reiki relieves stress, promotes healing, aligns you to your higher purpose, opens you in a gentle way, explores your awareness and deepens your oneness of being.   There are many other therapeutic benefits Reiki can offer and I encourage anyone pulled towards learning Reiki to make contact and discuss the long term benefits Reiki offers.


Working closely with the original philosophy of Dr Mikao Usui, the many teachings of this healing practice deepen your experience of compassion, unconditional love and the oneness of being.


A Reiki Practitioner who studies the system of Reiki is taught methods that were developed by the founder Mikao Usui in the early 1900s that utilize ‘Reiki’ to heal the self and become whole.


Influences upon Mikao Usui (1865-1926), and consequently upon his teachings (which are known as the system of Reiki today), came from his Japanese martial arts practice, Shintoism (the traditional Japanese folk religion), Japanese Buddhism (namely Tendai), and Shugendo (a spiritual mountain practice).

Naturally, the Japanese culture and philosophy that was apparent during Mikao Usui’s lifetime was also a great influence upon what has developed as the system of Reiki.



Reiki, the word, is Japanese. It is written with two Japanese kanji, meaning ‘Spiritual Energy’.






                                         is rei (lit. Japanese) spiritual












                                         is ki (lit. Japanese) energy








Previously these two kanji have been translated as ‘Universal Energy’ (or Universal Life Force Energy) outside of Japan. This is a translation of the second kanji, ‘ki’, only. The concept of ki is naturally the energy of everything including Heaven and Earth, the entire universe.


The first kanji, ‘rei’, may have been left out of English translations due to the fact that the term ‘spiritual’ was not the focus of the modern practise.


In Chinese, the same two kanji used to represent Reiki are pronounced differently but have similar meaning. In Chinese, Reiki is called Ling chi.
