Testimonials for Reiki Ken

Elsewhere on this website I’ve told you of how Reiki has made such a difference to my own health and life.

But don’t just take my word for it!

Have a look below and see how the lives of all these Reiki Ken clients have benefited from the effect of Reiki from me.

This is only a sample of the clients who have benefited from Reiki with me, from over 230 clients since 2009.

I began receiving distance Reiki from Ken in late August 2023. I’d had a debilitating bout of COVID and was suffering ongoing fatigue, breathlessness and anxiety. I was also experiencing lack of clarity in my self-employed business that has translated to a drop in income this year. The COVID infection highlighted this and I sought Ken’s help. 
The initial free session was incredibly useful. It allowed me to see how Ken worked, and to gauge whether this was right for me. The session was powerful. I immediately felt a shift in my body, and was confident enough to book eight further sessions. 
After a couple of sessions, my exhaustion began to lift. By October I was back running, despite the fact my lungs had hurt to breathe in late August. Each session was different, but always relaxing. Gradually, things have shifted in my work. I’m gaining much more clarity than I’ve ever had before, and I feel more purposeful.
I’ve just booked a second block of eight sessions. The Reiki is giving me physical and mental strength, courage, and gentleness that I need at this time. It’s supported my body as I healed from COVID, and it’s helped me to release my fear about moving forward. It’s also brought some insight that has translated into new creative projects. 
Ken has been solid, reliable, and caring throughout. He has clear boundaries that help me feel safe. He’s generous with his feedback and guidance and very clear about how the process works. 
I’m grateful to have asked him to help me through a challenging transition and look forward to what the next eight sessions will bring. Thanks, Ken! You’re a gem.
Johanna, Devon

Reiki has definitely helped me relax and focus better. I’ve enjoyed taking the hour to myself each week. Ken you’ve been great, very informative, organised and efficient in your service. I really appreciate your advice and the knowledge you have provided me with. This will not be my last session, hopefully the beginning. Thank you and I’ll be recommending you, I have already passed over your details to friends.
Nadia, Co Durham

I approached Ken to give me distant Reiki in January 2021.   I have several long-standing health conditions, the most debilitating being Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), Rheumatoid and Osteo Arthritis which affects my spine and knees and other joints.  I am constantly exhausted and in pain, being bed bound for a great deal of the day.    
I am a huge advocate of Reiki, having experienced it on and off for years. I was impressed by Ken’s kind caring and gentle manner and his complete honesty.
I’m on my second block of eight weekly sessions at the moment and I really enjoy them.  It’s a good feeling to shut yourself off from everything and everyone for a hour and allow the Reiki to do its thing.  
After a session I always go downstairs and start chatting to my husband and being far more energised and animated than normal.  He always refers to this uncharacteristic energy burst as “the Ken effect”.
All I can say is, thank you Ken, thank you Reiki.
And to you, the reader, I say try it, the results may surprise you.
Janna, Surrey

I have been having regular distant Reiki treatments with Ken for a few months now and always find them really helpful.  Sleep is much improved, as are stress levels.
Jeanette, West Yorkshire

A few months ago I had a very serious back problem, causing many issues. Having experienced past problems with anti inflammatories and other medications in recent years, I have turned more to the holistic approach.  After doing some research into healing energy, I decided to try Reiki.   I found Ken, a local Reiki Master on the internet, and contacted him.  He was very kind and understanding as he listened to my problems.  As he was only giving distance Reiki, due to COVID-19, I decided to give it a go.
After the first session (which was free), I felt different.  I went for a walk and noticed less pain, with a strange feeling of love and peace.
I researched distant Reiki more, and found even science backs it.  I decided to give it a go and continued with a block of eight weekly sessions.  My whole family thought I was crazy and tried talking me out of it, but I believed it could help. 
With good communication from Ken after each session, even though my health had its ups and downs during this time, Ken’s belief in the power of Reiki kept my spirits up.  (Even when I was given the diagnosis that my back had 2 cracked discs, 3 bulging discs, 4 x degenerations between discs & arthritis etc.)
I am now in a much better place than I was.  To now be able to walk through the park again with my wife and kids is an amazing wonderful thing. 
I can’t thank Ken enough and would recommend him and Reiki to anyone who needs help, emotionally or physically.
I still have a long way to go.  But for me this is just the start of a new journey. I hope to learn Reiki from Ken the Master, himself.
Richard, Co Durham

Reiki Ken at workI started receiving distant Reiki from Ken a few months ago due to stress related to the coronavirus lockdown and also due to irregular periods.  Since the sessions started, I have been feeling much more relaxed and my periods have also improved.  I would really recommend booking a session with Ken even if you are sceptical about distant Reiki.  Ken is a fantastic professional and will provide you with all the information you need before your sessions and the feedback afterwards to monitor your progress.  Worth giving it a try and looking after yourself with Reiki.
Rachel, Bristol

I did my Reiki Level 1 course with Ken, and had to return to complete my Level 2 with him as well.  Ken really is a great teacher, with so much experience and knowledge to feed from, he was a pleasure to learn from.  The weekend flew by, we were fully equipped and learned so much to take away with us.  For the following two weeks we had our assignments to complete and return, giving me plenty of time to practise and experience.  If you want to change something in your life for the better, then I suggest you learn Reiki!  With who better than Reiki Ken, not only a lovely guy, but as said before, so much information and knowledge to pass on.
Ian, Co Durham

After one Reiki treatment with Ken I felt inspired to complete his Reiki Level 1 course (which I did recently, at Ken’s home).  Ken is a kind and knowledgeable man, and I feel at ease and completely calm in his company.  I wish to continue to have regular Reiki treatments with Ken, and go on to complete the Reiki Level 2 and 3 courses.  Reiki has become a way of life for me, and has allowed me to feel relaxed and calm, which I never thought I could.  I would highly recommend Ken as Reiki therapist and teacher.
Catherine, Co Durham

I first looked into Reiki as I was becoming extremely stressed and irritable, which was affecting both my home and work life.  Reiki was recommended to me by a work colleague who has many years of experience in Reiki.  I Googled Reiki practitioners within my area and was immediately drawn to Reiki Ken.  Although there are a fair few within my area, it was Reiki Ken that I kept being drawn back to.  I booked my first session with Ken and immediately felt the benefit.  From that first session I could feel my body relaxing, the stress was leaving my body and most importantly my mind.  That was it, I was hooked.  I cannot recommend Reiki and Reiki Ken enough. What Reiki has done for me and my life is immense and cannot thank Ken enough for the wonders of his Reiki energy power.  I believe in Reiki so much that I have booked myself into Ken’s Reiki Level One course, which I hope to follow up with Level Two and Three.  If you are thinking about trying Reiki for the first time or even just trying a new practitioner, please do try Reiki Ken.  It will change your life, I know it has changed mine.
Joanne, Co Durham

I sought out Reiki whilst looking for an alternative to reduce the prescription medicine I was taking for anxiety and depression.  Being naturally sceptical I decided however to approach Reiki with an open mind, and am very pleased with the results so far.  The Reiki sessions are extremely relaxing and the severity and duration of the depressive episodes has reduced dramatically.  I have also been able to deal with challenges at work with much more confidence and reduced anxiety.
Even if you are sceptical I would advise you to give Reiki a try, and with an open mind you could well be surprised at the results!
Carl, Co Durham

Your Reiki really helped me.  It has done wonders for my mental state.  As I told you I have been keeping so calm in all sorts of situations.  This was never more clear than my recent trip to the States with my son.  He was the one getting into a stew about such things as possibly missing planes and lost luggage whilst I was very calm, which kept me level headed, which then led to me getting exactly the right help for issues.
Viv, Newcastle upon Tyne

I have been coming to have treatments with Ken for several months. I find him to be gentle, caring and compassionate and would recommend him. The severe depression and anxiety have now lifted and I feel more like my old self again.
Claire M, Co Durham

From childhood I suffered with a clicky knee, pain and cramps. This used to affect me on a daily basis. Some days worse than others with throbbing pain that often kept me awake at night. Any pressure on my knee from jeans etc would cause discomfort.  After numerous visits to the doctor’s over the years, I’d been diagnosed with various conditions, including growing pains, cartilage problems and fluid behind the knee. I received treatment from each diagnosis including physiotherapy.  Nothing helped.
One day a friend suggested I try Reiki. This was not a practice I had any knowledge about and after some research, I was sceptical, but willing to try anything.  After my enjoyable and relaxing session I honestly thought that it wouldn’t help. What I soon came to realise, my knee was cured. Five years on I have had zero knee pain. Reiki changed my life and I will be forever grateful to Ken for his skills. I have recommend this practice to so many people over the years and will continue to do so.
Kim, Co Durham

I have had two blocks of six sessions of distant Reiki from Ken to help me recover from a broken arm. Reiki not only kept me pain free for considerable periods of time but, I believe, also speeded up the healing process.
Throughout my sessions I had regular consultations with Ken, who is a sympathetic and knowledgeable therapist, and a very kind and compassionate person. I have no hesitation in recommending Ken as a therapist and distant Reiki as a therapy.
Cathy, Northumberland

Reiki changed my state of spirit significantly. It helped me clear my thoughts, calmed me down and improved my wellbeing. The most important effect it had was on my emotions. After six sessions of reiki healing I feel much more relaxed, more tolerant, more loving and it’s a lot easier to cope with the day-to-day stress.
I feel very much in peace with myself.
Also, Ken is a very friendly and sociable person and does his job very well. His service is pleasant and well worthy.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone, anytime.
Constantin, Teesside

At a crossroads in my life, suffering from all kinds of apathy, lethargy, insomnia and pains from various emotional and physical trauma I was desperate to find a good Reiki therapist to address my blocked chakras and many resulting issues.
I found Reiki Ken’s website and instantly it was clear that Ken was passionate about Reiki and I just knew he was the right therapist for me. After just speaking to Ken on the phone to arrange my first session, I felt the Reiki beginning to work and that night I slept better than I had in years. I was blown away with how knowledgeable and professional Ken was, so I couldn’t wait for my first session and he did not disappoint. He made me so welcome and relaxed I knew with so much going on in my life, past and present I needed to book a block of appointments. Each week I’ve looked forward so much to my hour of magical Reiki with Ken and loved my time out so much so I’m sad that the course of treatments is soon coming to an end. Ken has helped me so much and every week has been a completely different therapeutic experience. I feel so much happier and healthier and I will definitely return at some point for further Reiki with Reiki Ken.
Bev, Co Durham

After reading about Reiki over many months I decided to give it a go! Each session I have had has been different, it is extremely relaxing and has given me a calm peace within. I feel my sleep pattern and persistent headaches have improved greatly. Ken is a very caring person who is very passionate about what he does. I have no hesitation in recommending Ken’s services. I think people should experience Reiki and feel the benefits of this truly self healing service!
Jennifer, Co Durham

I sat one night searching the net for something to help me cope with the passing of my mother. I hadn’t heard of Reiki before but as I read about what Reiki Ken did I was drawn to his website. I hadn’t heard of Reiki before but as I read about what Reiki Ken did I was intrigued. I contacted Ken and set up an appointment. Meeting Ken for the first time I thought what a kind, caring person ; he made me feel at ease and comfortable. His Reiki room has a welcoming feel to it, too. I did feel strange after my first session, a good strange, like an indescribable high, which lasted for a few days afterwards. Every week I have felt different; it is extremely relaxing and has given me a calm peace within. It has helped me in ways I couldn’t imagine; I am so relaxed and laid back now. I don’t panic about things that need addressing like I used to. It has definitely changed me and my life for the better, and that is down to Reiki Ken and his healing hands. Reiki is part of my life now, and I feel very lucky to have come across it.
Karen, Co Durham

After a busy and stressful few years culminating in the death of my mum while in the middle of the house-moving process I needed an integrative therapy to help me through life in general, and I can safely say that the Reiki energy is allowing me to come through this very stressful time which inflicts on the mind and body. I can actively feel the energy working in my body during the sessions, as well as the session providing peaceful down-time away from the distractions of the outside world. Ken is very knowledgeable and passionate about the subject, friendly and ultimately professional. I would recommend Reiki and Reiki Ken to anybody for business and personal well-being and I will be continuing using Reiki throughout life.
Claire, Co Durham

I have taken up Reiki classes and passed my level 2 a few years back. But have not practised it on others or myself for a long time. I recently have decided to get back to Reiki and booked a block of six session with Ken. As this is my first time of receiving Distance Reiki with Ken, he has given me an extra session. I found Ken to be very informative and giving feedback after each session which are insightful and very apt to my emotional condition at the time. Ken could gauge the mood I was in, if I had lots of things going on in my head or in my life. The treatment helped me with my sleep and my stress. I would highly recommend Ken to anyone who is interested in trying out distance Reiki. I wish I had live much closer to Ken to try out hands-on Reiki sessions with him which I am convinced will bring even greater benefit to me.
Jongky, Edinburgh

I feel in more control of my moods, and I am much happier than I have ever been. I also think that I sleep much better than I ever have. I also had an anger problem sometimes in the past, and that is a lot better now.
I have been having Reiki therapy with Ken Hill for about 8 months now. I would like to say I am very pleased with the way this is helping me. I think this treatment should be given to everyone with mental health problems on the NHS. But not just people with mental health problems but everyone with any health problems.
This is the best thing since sliced bread in my view, and I think Ken is doing a great job, and I hope there are lots of people learning this Reiki at the moment as there will always be someone in the future to carry on this wonderful work.
Tina, Co Durham

Ken is a charming, calming man, and a gifted Reiki healer. After an initial 6 appointments (weekly), I found a significant improvement in my Blood Pressure readings, also my sleep apnoea was much improved. I continue to see Ken for Reiki on a monthly basis, and the benefits to my health and wellbeing are apparent.
June, Co Durham

After suffering from extreme pain for over 10 years, I was finally diagnosed with Fibromyalgia about 5 years ago now. I have tried a number of pain relief measures over time, with little success, but then a colleague at work mentioned Reiki to me, and after looking it up on the Internet, I found the details for Reiki Ken, and decided to give it a go.
Ken offers the first session free of charge, and although I was a bit nervous about it, at first, as I didn’t really know what to expect, Ken put me at ease, and talked me through the process, explaining everything before beginning the first session.
After the first session, I decided to book 10 further sessions with Ken, and after about the third one I started to notice a difference in my pain levels, as they seemed to be easing.
I also have osteoarthritis in my knees which is very painful and they swell up. This pain started to ease, and the swelling also went down after about 7 sessions.
I also began to feel different within myself, too, and I felt much happier and was in less pain.
I am totally smitten with Reiki, and am even looking into training in Reiki so that I can keep treating myself on a daily basis.I would highly recommend trying Reiki for pain relief with Reiki Ken as he has been a great Reiki master and very good support to me throughout my sessions.
Glennis, Co Durham

I have just completed 6 sessions of Reiki with Ken. Ken is very knowledgeable, and passionate about his practice of Reiki, and it shows in his compassion for the people he treats. I have always left feeling utterly relaxed, chilled, and safe in the knowledge that the Reiki would stay with me for at least another couple of days.
Reiki is something not to be missed.
Thank you, Ken.
Lynne, Co Durham

I have had 6 sessions with Ken for a chronic problem. The sense of relief I felt was tremendous, feeling invigorated and even more revitalised after each session. I would highly recommend Ken as a kind man with an enormous gift of Reiki.
Lesley, Co Durham

I have been to see Ken for seven weeks now; he is a kind and friendly person, and easy to talk to. I suffer from psoriasis, and Reiki has made my psoriasis better; I also feel better in myself since having Reiki. Not many creams that I have been given for my skin have worked, and I have had psoriasis for two years, but since going to Ken for Reiki it has cleared up loads better, so I would recommend Reiki to clear skin problems, and I shall continue to see Ken for Reiki in the near future.
Christopher, Co Durham

What is Reiki?

Reiki Ken has been nothing but kindness to me since I first contacted him. Although I experience very little during the sessions themselves, overall my wellbeing has improved beyond what I could have envisioned. I have come off antidepressants and feel far more positively about the future.
Victoria, Tyne and Wear

I first went to see Ken for help in getting relief from pain after a second operation to remove metalwork from a previous operation on a broken shoulder a year before had left me in much pain. I didn’t sleep much, and was becoming very sedentary.. Three months into Reiki and I can positively say the pain has almost gone, and my health and wellbeing have improved enormously. I am sleeping much better, and my little dog gets more “walkies” now. Thank you, Ken, for your kindness and understanding. (PS – I have more than halved my painkillers.)
Pat, Co Durham

I met Ken at an “away day” for carers. He was one of three complementary therapists giving talks and demonstrations. I went to the Reiki talk and volunteered for a demonstration. I knew that day that this was for me, and have continued with sessions ever since for stress relief and general well-being. Ken’s home is a little oasis in the desert, and I look forward to my visits.
Heather, Co Durham

I went to see Ken when I was suffering chronic back pain. I had seen a consultant at the hospital who told me they would normally carry out surgery for my condition but because of other medical problems I have, this was out of the question. I was told that the only treatment was painkillers or to attend a pain relief clinic.
After my first session with Ken I went home and relaxed for the afternoon. To my astonishment, by 5 pm I was pain free and able to move around easily. Although the pain did return, it was nowhere as severe as it had been. I have continued to be treated by Ken for nearly a year now and although I still have back problems, the pain is greatly reduced and my quality of life is much improved. Gradually I noticed other improvements in my health; as a Diabetic my blood sugar levels were reduced and also my cholesterol levels are a lot lower. I am now a much calmer person and don’t tend to get stressed as I did before.
Ken is a genuine and caring person and I am glad that I plucked up the courage to go and see him that day.
Carol, Co Durham

I have been having regular Reiki sessions with Ken since being diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2010. I can genuinely say that Reiki has really helped me, both physically and emotionally, to get through this very challenging time. Following two operations and 20 sessions of radiotherapy, I expected to feel extremely tired and run down, and I am convinced that the regular Reiki sessions have helped me to keep up my energy levels, and helped me remain positive throughout the ordeal! Fake rolex is great!
I am now back at work, pretty much back to “normal” and feel very well!
I would most certainly recommend Ken, who is a very genuine, honest and caring individual, and very passionate about what he does. Thanks for all your help and support, Ken!
Marian, Co. Durham

I have known Ken for a number of years and can say he is really passionate about how Reiki can improve a person’s wellbeing. From my own experience after a Reiki treatment from Ken, I always feel really relaxed and sleep well and would recommend everybody to try it.
Elaine, Co Durham

My son Harvey who was 7 months old at the time, received 2 sessions of distant Reiki therapy from Ken. My son had been suffering with ongoing chest problems since birth, brought on by premature birth. After receiving some therapy Harvey was less stressed, and content. It definitely made a difference! Many thanks for your help and support.
Caroline and Harvey, Co Durham

I asked Ken to send me some distant healing for a painful knee and at the appointed time I lay down on my bed. After a little while Mitzi my cat came and curled up on my chest, something she has never done before or since. When I spoke to Ken a few days later he asked me if I was having problems with my chest, something he had picked up on during the session. I said no, and we were both confused – until I remembered my cat. She had been off colour for a few days but after the distant healing she was fine! How she sensed where to come to for help is mind boggling. Needless to say, my knee was fine, too.
Anne, Yorkshire

After having my last Reiki session with you, what a difference! I know I was tired before I came to see you, as I am a therapist myself, and I work a lot of hours as you well know. On that night I had a really good night’s sleep, and in the morning felt very relaxed and happy; it’s also made a difference to my energy levels which is great for me. Also thought you would like to know my joints don’t feel as stiff as usual (due to my arthritis). I have not felt the need to take pain killers, which is great, so I will make another appointment in a few weeks’ time.
Marion, Co Durham

Had a session of distant Reiki with Ken when suffering from nerves before French oral exams – result – complete confidence and an A*.
Val, Co Durham

Ken is a gentle and caring person who has helped me on several occasions by carrying out both hands-on and distant healing, to relieve both physical and stress-related symptoms. As well as relief of physical discomfort, I have also felt positive emotional benefits, and always sleep deeper and longer after a Reiki therapy session. I have no hesitation in recommending Ken’s services and hope that others can benefit from his gifts.
Margaret, Northumberland

Not only is he genuinely passionate about what he does – providing Reiki therapy to people across the world, distant Reiki, but having spent a lot of time talking to him both face-to-face and via email, he’s a great guy to know.
Richard, ‘How passion sells’

This is only a sample of the clients who have benefited from Reiki with me, from over 220 clients since 2009.
