My journey as a professional holistic therapist began in 2009 in Riga, Latvia (where I was born and grew up) when I gained my first massage diploma and started to work as a massage therapist and looked for something else to compliment my treatments. I could feel that working only with the physical body isn`t enough. Even after a great massage, after a while, people return with the same issues. 

Stress, anger and worry...all deeply affects mind and body and I wanted to learn how I might help on this deep level. Very soon Reiki came into my life. Difficult to believe, I started learning Reiki without having even tried it myself, knowing just a little, trusting my intuition… finally, it opened up to me an amazing world that I realised I was already working within my life. Reiki is not just a healing system - it is a great tool for self-development with infinite possibilities for your life changes. It has brought so many changes in my life and now it inspires me to do what I love – helping and healing people with relaxing Reiki treatments and sharing my direct experience to my students on my courses.

Holding professional qualifications, gained in the UK, in Body and Deep Tissue Massage, Hot Stone Massage, as well as Diet and Nutrition, I am a fully insured Reiki Master in the Usui Reiki Ryoho lineage and a member of Shibumi International Reiki Association. I am the headteacher and founder of 'Healing Hands Edinburgh The Reiki School' providing healing Reiki sessions and training in the heart of Edinburgh.

Mario Martinez

Reiki and Massage therapist

Recently Mario has joined our team to offer to our clients "body massage".

My spiritual journey started in 2013 when I went for my Reiki I and very soon for Reiki Level II training. As a  result, I become keen to learn body massage. After completing my training I started to work in a chiropractic clinic in Edinburgh. Working alongside a chiropractor for several years gave me the experience and knowledge of how to deal with different physical health issues like back pain, headaches, migraines and general tension within the body. At the beginning of 2020, I felt that I am ready to complete my education in the Reiki system and went for the Reiki Level III to became a Reiki Master with Healing Hands Edinburgh the Reiki school. Since November I joined the therapy clinic in the Reiki School to provide Reiki and body massage. 

I am a qualified and fully insured massage therapist and Reiki practitioner.  My approach is to combine bodywork and energy healing which doubles the benefits of my therapies re-balancing the physical and mental level by one treatment.

Cori Wilkie

Reiki Master & Yoga Teacher

 Cori volunteers in the Community Reiki Clinic also she takes a part of our workshops and offers everyone to join her weekly "Reiki Share" online. 


I have been passionate about the power of energy for most of my life.  Being aware of the importance of energy and its impact on me has steered many decisions I have made and relationships I have formed with others. I completed my Master training in October 2018 London and registered with FHT. Reiki for me is a complementary therapy which promotes the transfer of energy from myself to others.  I believe, energy is all around us and nourishes our hearts and bodies daily.  

Since qualifying as a Reiki therapist I have offered 1to1 reiki sessions, undertaken workshops and facilitated groups with the aim of spreading the joy of Reiki.  As well as being a Reiki therapist, I teach yoga and am a systemic life coach.  I am currently specialising in YIN yoga which targets the deep connective tissues of our bodies and encourages the flow of energy within the body.
