I encountered Reiki in 2010, and was trained by Reiki Masters Gilles Tikka and Martine Rollin-Tikka in Paris (Reiki France), obtaining my three Reiki degrees between 2010 and 2012. Since that time, I have practised Reiki daily, either with meditation, or alongside a simple yoga practise. I wish here to give thanks to my teachers Gilles and Martine. My path in Reiki began with a single session with Martine in 2010. I knew instantly that I wanted to learn about and then work with Reiki. It is with great joy that I could study with them for my three degrees.

I received my Reiki III practitioner degree just 10 days before I was to leave France in 2012. That weekend of initiation and attunement was a very special moment.

I have always been interested in the energetic arts and from my years at university onwards I attended evening classes in Tai Chi (Bronwyn Hipkin, Cambridge UK), and in Aikido (Tony Sargeant, Cambridge). Moving to Paris in 1992, I subsequently discovered Les temps du corps, a center for study and practice of Qi Gong founded by Ke Wên. I trained under Sun Feng for 5 years, taking classes in Dao Yin Qi-Gong.

Reiki-waves is an intitiative that has been gradually developing over the past months, as I integrate regular distance work into my daily Reiki practice.

Although with my Reiki III diplôma I obtained the level of Reiki Practitioner, this is in reality the point where it all begins. This year, my own work has been enrichened by two Workshops for Reiki practitioners run by Candace Caddick – Reiki Master, author and member of The Reiki Association – which she held in September and October at energy sites in the UK. This year her workshops took place at Woodhenge (near Stonehenge in Wiltshire), and next spring, I will be taking part in further workshops at Avebury. The Woodhenge workshops centered around inner vision, and have been really deepening my practice of Reiki.

I am very happy to share regular Reiki work with Vibeke Francis – website – who works particularly with Reiki for horses. The work that we do together in our exploration of Reiki is both profoundly enriching and profoundly healing.

In February 2015 I began my Systematic Kinesiology Foundation Course (Levels 1 to 4) and am a student of Rosie Dowbekin for the Academy of Systematic Kinesiology (London). I am taking the Intermediate Level course (Levels 5 & 6) in June and July of this year, and hope to begin my full Diplôma training this autumn in Bristol. This will lead me to integrate Kinesiology fully into my healing practice, and I will be able to offer Kinesiology Sessions (with or without Reiki), from September 2015.
