The Reiki Centre
The Reiki Centre was founded in 1992 and is probably the oldest and best established centre for Reiki Training and Treatments in the UK.
The founder and principal teacher of The Reiki Centre is Hjalmar Jonsson. As a Reiki Master he now has over eighteen years experience of teaching in this country.
He was introduced to Reiki in 1988 in Iceland and attended a First Degree course in 1989 with American Reiki Master Paula Horan, author of "Empowerment Through Reiki", amongst other books, was attuned to the Second Degree in 1990 by Icelandic Reiki Master Gudrun Oladottir, who trained with Paula Horan, and he then trained as a Reiki Master / Teacher during 1991 with English Reiki Master Charmian Winser, author of “Reiki - Healing energy for mind, body and spirit”. In 1991 he was one of the founders of the Reiki Association and served on its board for some years.
At the Reiki Centre we are traditional Reiki Masters, teaching the original Usui System of Natural Healing, "Usui Shiki Ryoho", as near as possible to the way it was presented to the western world by Reiki Master Hawayo Takata, who learnt it in Japan in the early 1930s.
We honour the beauty in the simplicity of Reiki, add nothing and leave nothing out.
When the time is right and you want Reiki to be a part of your journey then make that commitment and choice of Reiki Master from your heart, rather than your head, and your experience will be joyous.
We are happy to arrange courses and introductory talks wherever and whenever there is a need providing our schedule allows. New courses are continually being added to our schedule so please call us on 01342 327 927 for an update.
Receiving Reiki treatment is a very simple, non-intrusive and extremely powerful process. A treatment session lasts between one to one and a half hours but specific areas can be treated in 20 - 30 minutes. It is usually done with the recipient lying down, fully clothed and covered with a blanket, on a massage table, a bed or even the floor.
The therapist gently places her or his hands in various positions over the body enabling the recipient to draw the energy where it is needed. Each position is held for a few minutes. There is no pressure, making it ideal for treating the very young and the elderly, pregnant women and those recovering from surgery.
Most often the whole body is treated, not just an isolated area, although a little Reiki is better than none if time is short. This enables the energy to go right to the source of the imbalance and not just to the manifesting symptoms.
Treatment can also take the form of absent or distant healing.
During a treatment you will generally feel a pleasant sensation of warmth or gentle tingling in the area being touched. As the energy comes into balance, stress and tensions are released and there is a deep sense of relaxation and a feeling of well-being. You may even fall asleep!
Reiki restores and harmonises your life energy and increases the body's ability to heal itself. It can be given as a deep relaxing therapy or more intensive treatment concentrating on specific areas of dis-ease.
Probably the oldest and best established centre for traditional Reiki training
and treatments in this country with over sixteen years experience

On the 1st Degree course you receive the four attunements to your energy channels that are the very essence of Reiki. These are spaced throughout the two days, allowing at least a 3 hour gap between each, to ensure adequate integration of the adjustments to your Energy Channels. You also learn, and practice, how to give a Reiki treatment to yourself and others. Throughout both days we discuss the story of Reiki, the Reiki Principles, various aspects of applying Reiki to your daily life, ethics involved in treating others, exchange of energies, etc, etc….
Course fee: £130
On the 2nd Degree course you receive two further attunements, one on each day, for integration and balance, and you are introduced to the three sacred symbols (keys), and their mantras, that are used in absent (distant) healing, for greater healing empowerment and for various life enhancements. We also discuss various aspects of “Life, the Universe and Everything” and you will practice sending absent healing to other people. Course fee: £260
The courses usually start at around 9:30 both days; we take about an hours break for lunch and aim to finish by 18:00. The flow of each course is to a degree dictated by the dynamics of the group. The groups are small, informal and supportive. The courses include a certificate of attainment and ongoing post-course support.
Please note that it is by no means essential that you do a 2nd Degree course after you are attuned to the 1st Degree. You should only consider attaining the 2nd Degree when it feels right to advance your attunement and commitment to your Life Journey and Reiki. When you do we advise that you leave at least 3 months between the two to allow yourself full assimilation of the 1st Degree attunements. 1st & 2nd Degrees should never be done together. Training for the Master / Teacher Degree is done traditionally on an individual basis and is therefore not advertised as a course.
