Reiki and Cancer

Cancer has become a very common illness nowadays.

Doctors, researchers, volunteers, fundraisers, and therapists - we are in it together. It`s not easy being on that battle with cancer to have surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy. Many people are looking for complementary therapy to support their mind and the body during this difficult period of time. One of the most accepted and practiced forms of complementary therapy is Reiki which works in conjunction with medical or psychological treatment. Hospitals and clinics across the UK are beginning to acknowledge Reiki as a meaningful way to improve patient care and have started including Reiki practitioners on their staff or invite volunteers in.  

Reiki Treatment

'' I found having Reiki therapy very relaxing and helped with my stiff muscles and gave me emotional support''

Reiki support during a cancer treatment

Reiki isn’t a substitute to conventional cancer treatment, but many cancer patients, who have tried Reiki, comment that their pain and feeling of tension decrease, their sleeping improves, and that they feel an improvement in their well-being after cancer treatments. Reiki is a non-invasive technique that causes no side effects or complications, it can be performed on cancer patients at any time following their diagnosis and throughout their treatment. Reiki might also be effective at reducing anxiety and inducing relaxation and balance among those in remission.



I have been supporting people with cancer for a few years now, fundraising and organizing free therapy days for people supported by Maggie`s to bring more awareness about how complementary therapies can support people affected by cancer. In my private practice, I also focused on this group of people or their families during their difficult period of time offering Reiki sessions. Read more...
