Reiki – A Teesside Yogi’s experience

Reiki in Middlesbrough, Stockton and Teesside – Where to practice.

On one of my many trips to practice Yoga and Meditation on Koh Phangan, I decided to participate in the local Reiki I & II course. When I was there, I made a very good friend Rashaun and had an amazing experience with Taryn, the lady who runs the courses on Koh Phangan. This was circa 2015, it seems like a lifetime ago, however I still use the skills and knowledge learnt from this experience daily in my practices and in my teaching.

There are many benefits to practicing Reiki and learning it with a skilled, well learned teacher can really help with mental wellbeing.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese deep relaxation technique, which invokes a deep meditative state for the receiver. The practitioner works with the bodys energy, known as Qi in Japanese, by placing hands on specific points on the body. This helps to bring calm and a sense of peace and tranquility.
It helps to move blocked energy within the body, which can cause feelings of unease, anxiety and low mood. When our energy flows freely, our energy levels increase, which leads to feelings of peace, calm, tranquillity, improved mood and wellbeing.

What are the benefits of Reiki?

Reiki helps to soothe the nervous system, bringing a peace of sense and calm to the body. It can help lower blood pressure and help with certain mental ailments such as anxiety and depression. It can improve sleep patterns. It can also help with working through difficult feelings and emotions, improving clarity.

Teachers and practitioners in Teesside.

There are many teachers and practitioners within Teesside practicing Reiki. I would recommend Jenni Crowther and Jo Taylor for sessions in Teesside. They are two well learned practitioners and rate them both highly.
