Benefits of Jikiden Reiki


Reiki is a “laying of the hand” healing modality that channels life force energy to oneself or ones  client, who remains fully clothed during the treatment session.


Reiki relieves energy blockages and imbalances (the source of dis-ease) to support healing and well being.


Reiki treats the whole person including – body, emotions, mind and spirit – creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, serenity, security and well being.


More importantly, it works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic treatment techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.


Regular contact with Reiki will bring the recipients mind, body & soul into balance.


Reiki is a complementary form of treatment that does not replace or interfere with conventional medical treatment.  


It is excellent for reducing stress, relaxing the mind and body, clearing and focusing the mind.


It is an excellent support to overall physical, mental and emotional healing process.

What to expect from a Jikiden Reiki session:

After a short consultation, the client lies fully clothed on a Reiki table, with soft lighting, relaxing music, soothing water fountain or per request, no sound at all. The session will start with gentle touch to the head.

During a Jikiden Reiki session, no oils or other substances are applied to the body.  While the focus of a Reiki session is on the major organs of the body, Reiki energy reaches and benefits every cell.

During a Reiki treatment, the practitioner’s hands are placed on the head, the face, the upper body (neck to hip) and the back (from shoulders to feet). Reiki can also be applied directly to any injured part of the body that is of particular concern to the patient. Jikiden Reiki physical treatments last anywhere from 60-90 minutes and are generally concentrated on the head, upper back, lower back, kidneys and the soles of the feet. Most clients enter a very relaxed sate and some even fall asleep. Energy flows through the practitioner to you.

In Jikiden Reiki, we don’t work with set hand positions, but instead focus treatment on the areas where there are accumulations of toxins. Reiki can be a used as a relaxation tool but is not just for relaxation.  It is a hands-on traditional healing method and Reiki facilitates the connection between the mind, body and spirit, creating a sense of overall wellness in the body.

After a session, you may experience a feeling of lightness, like a weight lifted from you.  You are invited to sit for a few minutes while your body adjusts to the energetic changes.  You may enjoy a glass of water and over the next few days keep your body hydrated to help in the release of built up toxins.

Jikiden Reiki treatment is not meant to replace traditional health care but as mentioned can be used in conjunction with other therapies or treatment to help promote health & wellness.

Hello, my name is Sylvia and I want to share a moment of gratitude for reviewing my bio. I am a trusted Reiki Master and certified Life Coach. My goal is to provide a safe space for you – a space where you can relax, heal and express yourself to break free of whatever is holding you back. My approach is to combine the modalities Reiki and Life Coaching. Deep Relaxation through balancing of chakra energies is a centre stone of receiving Reiki.


In my experience, the new inner formation and awakening of unknown emotions can bring up the wish to talk about it. Here, instead of sending you home, I would like to offer for you the opportunity to share your feelings, to find guidance and identify new goals in life. I will bring understanding, empathy and space for you to open up and feel comfortable.

I am passionate about working with people who are searching for clarity in life transitions, striving for career change, relationship improvement, as well as, self esteem, confidence and spirituality. I take great pride in the progress and success of my clients, and I am looking forward to working with you.
