Reiki in Ulverston, South Lakeland, Cumbria
My name is Jill Bartlett and I am a Reiki Master Practitioner. I practice Reiki in the South Lakes, Barrow, Ulverston, Kendal and Grange-over-Sands area. I have studied Health and Social Care working for over 18 years in the care sector working with the elderly. I have always been interested alternative therapies and how or in what situation they can be used. I am a fully insured Reiki Master Practitioner and a member of the Reiki federation. I have qualifications to treat Humans and Animals with Reiki Healing. I am attuned into the Usui Reiki lineage, a lineage is like a family tree and can be traced back teacher by teacher to the original Reiki master, Mikoa Usui, the name Usui Reiki comes from the original masters name. I am also trained in Holy Fire Karuna Reiki and Animal Reiki.
I first learnt about Reiki while searching on the internet for information on holistic therapies which might have benefited my own health at that time. The first therapy which I looked at was Reiki. I read about it and thought this is all “a bit weird” but read on and I became intrigued by the whole aspect of spiritual healing . I had my first Reiki therapy and felt immediate benefits and it all started from there. Consequently I decided to learn how to practice reiki and became attuned so I could treat myself and friends. As time went on I thought there must be lots of other people and animals who could benefit from this fantastic therapy! That is how my new journey started.
The word Reiki means (which is pronounced Ray-Key), Rei – Guided, Ki – (universal life force energy). It is a healing therapy developed in Japan discovered in the 20th century by the founder Mikoa Usui. He based his healing techniques on methods and philosophies from several traditions and healing practices in Asian healing going back thousands of years. It is a natural holistic of a complementary nature ‘energy healing’ which assists in encouraging the body to self-heal using ‘Universal life force Energy’ which is a natural energy all around us. It is a light touch or no touch treatment depending on the clients’ preference. Reiki therapy helps with your personal wellbeing, helping to balance your body and encourage self- healing.
We are unlucky enough to have a naughty male cat who likes to spray and toilet inappropriately in the house. After 2 or 3 years of problems, investigations at the vets, dietary changes and books on cat behaviour, we were at the point of deciding to either spend hundreds on getting a cat behaviourist to help us or to find an alternative home for our cat where he would be less stressed.
As a last resort we contacted Jill to see if she could give some reiki to help “chill him out” - what a change! Gone was our grumpy, angry cat, our friendly, relaxed, playful cat was back. He even bought toys to us in the middle of the night to play which was unheard of. His inappropriate toileting has pretty much dissipated. He still sprays on occasion (usually when out kitten aggravates him) but that’s a sign that he’s due another session with Jill. We cannot thank Jill enough for making our house of cats happy once again!
