Energy Therapy

Terms and Conditions

"The Practitioner" = Jackie Howchin – Reiki Practitioner

"The Client" = the recipient of the Reiki treatment

Times and Availability

Treatments are available by appointment only, and at times mutually agreed and convenient to both the practitioner and the client.

The Reiki Treatment

Treatments are one hour in duration – although an additional 30 minutes may be required prior to the client’s initial treatment, in order that a consultation can take place to ensure that Reiki therapy is appropriate. Reiki is a hands-on energy technique, which will be carried out whilst the client is fully clothed.
Reiki can complement any current medical or psychological treatment the client may already be receiving, and it should not be seen as a replacement for such treatment.
At all times the client’s personal body privacy will be maintained and they will not be required to remove any clothing, apart from shoes, belts, jewellery etc.
The client may feel very relaxed and sleepy during and immediately after the healing session.
The client may experience heightened emotional and/or physical feelings after treatment.
The client will be given the opportunity to ask questions regarding the Reiki healing session.
The client will sign a Consent Form which covers the initial Reiki treatment, and any other subsequent treatments undertaken.

Effects of Reiki Treatment

The client should be aware that:

Some of the more common signs that your body is releasing a blockage during a Reiki treatment are: Crying, laughing, coughing, swallowing, twitches and jerks, burping, breathing changes, anger, changes of skin colour and seeing bright colours. These are all normal and are good signs that some positive change has occurred. Sometimes you will notice no signs or changes at all - this is also normal and is not a sign that the treatment isn’t working.

After receiving Reiki, as in any complementary therapy, it is possible for:

  Symptoms to reduce in intensity

  Symptoms to temporarily increase in intensity and then reduce

  A feeling as if experiencing flu-like symptoms, without actually being ill, which passes within a day or so. (These types of symptoms are often called ‘a healing crisis’)

Please do listen to the messages that your body is giving you:

  If you feel like resting more than usual, then do so

  If you feel like drinking more water, as if you were flushing out your system, then please drink more

  If there is anything you are not sure about, then please do ring your Reiki practitioner

The client should note any particular reactions (including dates) which they feel may be attributed to their Reiki treatment, and bring it to any future session.

Effects of Reiki Treatment

All medical and personal information provided by the client must be accurate and true, to the best of the client’s knowledge. Any information will be treated as strictly confidential by the practitioner.
The practitioner will not diagnose conditions or prescribe medication or treatment, and will always recommend referral to a GP for the treatment of any medical/psychological issues.

Late Arrivals

In most cases the treatment will need to end on time, due to the practitioner’s other commitments, and therefore a client who arrives late will reduce the amount of time available for treatment. The full cost for a one hour treatment will still be payable by the client.


If a client should miss or cancel an appointment, giving less than 48-hours notice, a cancellation fee of 50% of the hourly fee will be payable by the client.


Payment is by cash or cheque, payable at the time of treatment.
