Christina works at a clinical level treating patients at St Luke’s Hospice, Basildon and as a Reiki Teacher at the Hutton Poplars Lodge, Essex. She has many private clients, friends and colleagues who share Reiki and is passionate about building a Reiki community in her local area, Hutton, Essex.
Christina first became aware of Reiki after meeting two Reiki Masters on a music course. They explained that Reiki (“Ray-key”) means ‘universal energy’ and is the energy that is around everything: humans, animals, plants, even objects. Later on in the course, Christina started noticing energy – for example the energy released when playing the bass drum. She went on to notice the varying energy levels of guests on her coach tours and how it was possible to influence them. Later that Summer, she got a Reiki treatment for herself and went on to train so that she could give treatments to herself and others.
