Hi I’m Yvonne Oakes and I welcome you to Light From Within and an exploration of Reiki.
Reiki is a gentle and effective form of healing using the Universal Life Force Energy (the energy that is all around us) which activates our body’s own natural ability to heal itself. As a natural healing system, it can benefit everyone, from young babies to adults of all ages.
It works on the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the body allowing for essential balance to be restored between the three. Reiki can also promote self-development, therefore allowing you to be at your optimum to deal with all aspects of life and reach your full potential.
Reiki healing sessions can reduce stress within the body, thereby inducing a state of relaxation and allowing the body to realign itself producing a feeling of total wellbeing, which can have a very positive effect on the immune system, amongst many other benefits including:
- Clearing the head to aid clear thinking and decision making
- Help in coming to terms with and cope with deep emotional distress from past
trauma/experiences and bereavement
- Appreciating the joy and happiness we already feel – you do not have to be
unwell to benefit from Reiki
- It has been found to benefit people with all kinds of illnesses and injury.
Reiki is given with the person fully clothed, either lying down or sat comfortably in a chair whilst the energy is channelled through the Reiki practitioner to the client by laying or hovering his or her hands at the energy points or chakras in the body.

Distance Reiki. As Reiki is energy, it can be ‘sent’ over distance, and so is beneficial to those unable to meet with me face to face. We just need to agree a date/time that is convenient for us both.
Reiki Drum. Reiki drumming is a specialised method of healing that makes use of the sound waves from the drum to introduce Reiki energy more deeply into a client’s energy field, reminding it of it’s ideal vibration to facilitate deep relaxation and stress relief. It can also be used to overcome bad habits, to focus the mind on something important or for achieving a goal.
Animal Reiki: As with humans, Reiki healing may benefit animals with physical, mental or emotional issues and also animals with behavioural problems that have an emotional basis or influence. A Reiki session is typically carried out in the animal’s familiar surroundings where he/ she is most relaxed and comfortable.
Before receiving Reiki, I have a discussion with you about the reason for it being sought, your or your animal’s health and set intentions/a plan for the Reiki therapy.
Sessions in my London-based treatment clinic lasts for approximately one hour and cost £35 (special offers often available).
Please now take a look at the brief video that tells you a little bit about me, as I think it’s important to have a sense of connection when choosing a practitioner to work with.
