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 230 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 Teacher’s level in 2006.

Here is what Rachel said about her Reiki experience with me –
“I 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.”

Reiki Ken - I practice self Reiki

I was on a panel of distant Reiki healers with the UK Reiki Federation from 2010 to 2019, and every week we all sent out distant healing – free of charge – to people throughout the world. They were people who had specifically requested Reiki for help with their various health problems.

Dori Beeler contacted me in Autumn 2012 from the Department of Anthropology at Durham University.  She was doing research for her PhD in “An Ethnographic Account of Reiki Practice in Britain“, and I was privileged to provide Dori with some input.  She was awarded her PhD in June 2015.

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, in my daily sessions of Reiki self treatment.

Reiki can help you, too!
