FAQs

Do I have to be undressed or take any clothing off to receive my treatment?

This depends on the treatment. You will remain fully clothed for a Reiki and Indian Head Treatment. For Reiki, some people experience increased warmth so you may wish to remove a jumper/ fleece etc.

For Swedish Massage and Hot Stones you will need to remove your clothing. However you will only be uncovered on the area being massaged.  Full privacy will be provided.


Do you need to touch me?

For all treatments offered; yes.

Reiki can be delivered hands on or hands off – I only offer a hands on Reiki Treatment


How many sessions will I need?                                                                                                            

The amount of treatments required varies from person to person.  In general most problems will take time; healing is a process rather than an event.  A Holistic Practitioner may make a recommendation however; you should feel free to make the decision about the spacing of your treatments yourself.
