Who is Reiki Ken?

I'm someone who is passionate about Reiki and its benefits to our health, and have been offering it to over 160 clients since 2009.

I suppose I've had this desire to help people for many years. Back in 1997 I got into support work helping people with mental health problems and learning disabilities, before eventually working with carers.

Now Reiki is my work – and I love it! I was attuned to Reiki Level 1 (in 1998), Reiki Level 2 (in 2005), and Reiki Master’s level (in 2006).

I have worked on people with the following conditions –

  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Panic attacks
  • Osteoarthritis
  • ME
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Breast cancer
  • Grief
  • Back pain
  • Other pain relief (eg knees, shoulders, thighs, legs)
  • Arthritis
  • Anxiety
  • Sports injuries
  • Dry skin
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Sleep Apnoea

In 2014 I wrote a report (over 350 pages in length, and including 74 clinical trials, scientific evidence supporting the use of Reiki) for the NHS, recommending use of Reiki in the NHS, and submitted it later that year. In writing the report, I had the support of Sylvia Clegg, the Chair of the UK Reiki Federation, and of Jenny Chapman, MP for Darlington. The report is still being considered by the local NHS.

As a result of writing the report, I accepted an offer to become the Research Co-ordinator of the UK Reiki Federation in 2015.

At Huddersfield University, Dr Serena McCluskey and Dr Maxine Stead, having heard about my report, asked me to join them in co-authoring their next report, a journal article reviewing the scientific literature in the area of the use of Reiki in the world of medicine. They are intending to seek funding for further research in this field, and I have agreed to help with that, too.

I am on a panel of distant Reiki healers with the UK Reiki Federation, and every week we all send out distant healing to people throughout the UK and in the world beyond. These are people who have specifically requested Reiki for help with their various problems.

Dori Beeler of the Department of Anthropology at Durham University contacted me in Autumn 2012. (Click here for her profile.) She was doing research for a PhD in "Anthropology and Reiki", and I was privileged to provide Dori with some input. She was awarded her PhD in June 2015.

I have been CRB checked, and hold a current Enhanced Disclosure form.

I am a Master Practitioner member of the UK Reiki Federation. Reiki has helped me, too, with depression, and osteoarthritis in my knees.

Stress affects us all these days, and I'm no exception; Reiki continues to help me with that, too.
