Rather than me trying to explain what Reiki is, let my clients share their experiences with you. Here are just a few of the testimonials I’ve received over the years.

Jackie helped ensure that my new business was a total success

Before I go into details, I just want to emphasise that just 4 sessions with Jackie changed my life forever, it is without a doubt the best investment I have EVER made in myself. If you are considering working with her, take this as a sign to give it a go because you won’t regret it!

When I found Jackie I was starting a new area of my business and part of this required me to get on video conferences with many potential customers and deliver education virtually. This was something I have never done before and it scared me, so I wanted to try a different type of therapy to get my confidence shining and my communication skills on top form!

After just one session Jackie was able to help clear my energy and release negative and self limiting beliefs that I had held for many years! She gave me practice tools to use outside of our sessions and it was the best therapy I have ever received (and I have tried many traditional methods previously).  Not only did the work with Jackie help ensure that my new business was a total success! She helped me release things that were holding me back in all areas of my life. With that release I also began to realise I had gifts and abilities that I never knew of, and this has changed my life forever.

There are not enough words to thank Jackie for the amazing work she does and all the love and support she gives to so many people through her business. Thank you for everything Jackie!

After my first session with Jackie I felt so clear headed

I had been suffering with a lot of stress and anxiety through my workplace and life in general (but mostly work). I had already gone through CBT therapy which helped to a certain degree, but the stress and anxiety is still something I heavily struggle with. I really felt like I was completely out of whack, overwhelmed and unable to gain any sort of control over my situation.


So a friend of mine recommended I see Jackie. My friend has had reiki with Jackie for a while and strongly recommended I go to see her to start some reiki therapy, and I’m so thankful because even from one session with Jackie I already felt a huge benefit from it.


After my first session with Jackie I felt so clear headed, I genuinely felt like a big weight had been lifted off of my shoulders and felt so great in myself: calm, motivated and blessed. A lot of positive things I hadn’t felt in a long time.


Jackie is such a lovely woman. She’s so calming and makes you feel comfortable in her sessions. I’m usually very uncomfortable in discussing things that involve being emotional and vulnerable, but she made me feel safe and comfortable the entire time, and I thank her for that deeply.  She’s truly a beautiful soul and I’m excited to start this journey with her help. Thank you Jackie.

I am sure that babies love reiki too as my second son is very content and healthy

Making the decision to work with Jackie was one of the best decisions I have made. When I first came to Jackie I was unhappy in my job, didn’t have much confidence and had quite a negative perspective on life. I was also expecting my second child and allowed my first experience overshadow any excitement I should have been having.

With Jackie’s help I have managed to manifest so many positive things and I now feel so much more relaxed and confident about the future. I was determined to have a natural labour and birth the second time around and I am so grateful and happy that I managed this and was able to go home quickly. I am sure that babies love reiki too as my second son is very content and healthy!

I would 100% recommend working with Jackie, she instantly puts you at ease and is a lovely positive person. I absolutely loved the reiki sessions and will definitely be having more in the future.

Kate – Bournemouth

I came away feeling SO muuch lighter, like a fog had been lifted

Where to begin. Jackie is a genuine soul who instantly puts you at ease. I first visited Jackie after a traumatic event after my mum recommended her. I didn’t know what to expect but as soon as I met her I knew I was in safe hands. Her holistic approach is invaluable and you can tell her anything with no judgement and full confidentiality. I came away feeling SO much lighter, like a fog had been lifted. The transformation was night and day, and I was so impressed that I immediately signed up to learn so that I could help family and friends.

She really is a wonderful human, and if you are reading this unsure of whether Reiki is for you then I say do it. You will not regret it!

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome – Jackie helped me find my strength that I thought had been lost

I’ve lived with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for nearly 10 years and as a result have experienced some pretty rubbish lows. CFS, and the hurdles life likes to throw at you, had led to my energy and mood feeling static: I thought it would never improve and was wholeheartedly deflated.

I wasn’t sure what to expect but I can say that within just one session Jackie helped shift that outlook. I have attended countless therapy sessions and not one has come close to making me feel as comfortable, respected and empowered as Jackie did. From the moment I walked in, I could sense this was a safe place. A place to laugh, to cry, to open up or just to sit in silence. Jackie has a beautiful wisdom about her and could preach to stadiums but she is entirely patient and grants you the time to explore your journey with her. I never felt rushed and she has a sincerity that I have yet to experience with other therapists.

Leaving the session, I felt an immense calm that I’ve previously struggled to hold on to but most importantly, I felt hope. After feeling so demoralised, Jackie granted me with a fresh outlook that made me feel so empowered. She helped me find my strength that I thought had been lost. And ever since, its just kept growing!

Thank you Jackie, from the bottom of my heart, for reminding me that my spark is still there.

I was teetering on the edge of a massive entrepreneurial burnout

I discovered Jackie just as I was teetering on the edge of a massive entrepreneurial burnout. I had been pushing hard for three years when I suddenly (and luckily) realised I had driven myself right up to my edge.

A Google search later and I was on the phone to Jackie. That afternoon I was in her apartment. And following my first treatment I knew my road to recovery had commenced.

I returned weekly for a number of months. On every occasion I left feeling even better. In total I have probably seen Jackie about 20 times. Her powerful Reiki work is absolutely amazing and I personally wouldn’t go anywhere else.

The thing to know when you enter the world of Jackie is you are entering a really special place, full of healing love, genuine kindness, a caring human being with a deep heartfelt compassion.

These are the gifts Jackie brings to this world and there is no one like her.

Jackie is special.

I have come out of the depths of despair, and feel that I am now back in the game!

In May 2018, I was diagnosed with an extremely large pituitary tumour.  I was very lucky that I had symptoms that lead to its diagnosis, for I would not be here today.  The operation was carried out and the surgeon managed to remove just over half of the tumour, picking it away from my artery and off the optic nerves.  As a consequence, I now suffer from nerve damage and Occipital Neuralgia, of which the pain has been horrendous.

Nothing prepared me for the next fifteen months that followed.  I had gone through the worst time imaginable, living with excruciating pain on a daily basis, and the aftercare offered by the hospital was practically non-existent.  The treatments I did receive however, made my condition worse, and the medication just left me existing rather than living.   By now, I was at the end of my tether, unable to escape or cope.

I heard of Jackie through a lovely lady I met at a Meditation group that I had just joined.  I was looking for an alternative route to escape my pain, and this led me on a new journey – WOW what a journey it has been!  Meeting Jackie for the very first time, I immediately felt her warmth and kindness and I was completely relaxed throughout my entire Reiki session.  In fact, by the time I left, I felt amazing and energised.  Prior to this, for months I had no choice but to return to my bed by lunch-time each and every day, due to an overwhelming sense of exhaustion, but that day I managed to keep going till about 11:00 pm before finally going to bed.

From there on in my life changed.  My symptoms have lessened, and every day since has brought me something amazing that I can’t really explain.  I have come out of the depths of despair, and feeling that I am back in the game – and for that Jackie, I will be forever grateful.

So just five weeks on from that Initial Reiki session, I went on to complete my Reiki Level 1.  It was an amazing fun-filled day full of extremely interesting and informative information.  My group consisted of myself and three other ladies, all looking to share this wonderful gift that we now possess.  I am so excited to advance to Reiki Level 2, I can’t wait!

Thank you for changing my life Jackie   x

Caroline – Bournemouth

I felt like I was walking on clouds!

After my first session of Reiki, I felt like I was walking on clouds – I felt so light.  It was fantastic.  Thank you Jackie.

Juliet – Ringwood

This Course is Excellent
Jackie is a teacher who gives her all to her students, and opens herself up to them without holding back anything at all. There was so much love, understanding and trust fostered by Jackie, it was very humbling. Excellent course material which was easy to follow and understand. This course is excellent. Thank you.

Judi – Wimborne

I felt instant relief from negativity and anxiety

Meeting Jackie for my first Reiki experience was wonderful. She greeted me with open arms and love, and I instantly felt safe and trusting of her. We started my session talking through the trauma I had been through of late, and how reiki works.

My reiki session was wonderful and relaxing, and I felt instant relief from my negativity and anxiety. I learned how to respect the universe and bring more positivity in my life, which I have continued to do since my session. Jackie not only introduced me to my first experience of reiki, but also answered a lot of unanswered questions regarding things that had been happening in my life.

Thank you Jackie.


Gemma – New Milton

The world is a better place with your presence

Thank youuuuuuuuuu!

For making my life better, and for REALLY GETTING ME!!!

That gift alone is just so incredibly healing.

The world is a better place with your presence.

Lots of love.

Sarah – Bournemouth

I never thought that just one person could set me on such a life changing path!

I have so much love for this lady Jackie Howchin.  When I walked into her Reiki studio 18 months ago, I NEVER thought that just one person could set me on such a life changing path.

Thank you, beautiful lady, for breathing life into me, for building my courage and strength, for giving me my power and changing the whole course of my life.

Thank you from the bottom of my joyful heart.

Pam – Bournemouth

I felt completely comfortable opening-up to Jackie about my hopes and fears

Jackie’s Healing Art Therapy Workshop was recommended to me at a women’s group where I shared my longing to rediscover my creativity  –  expressing that brought me to tears at the group, as it does now.

I suppose I considered myself a lapsed artist but I was totally blocked. I couldn’t get past my fear of failure and constantly put obstacles in my own way, making excuses or procrastinating – clearly self- sabotage.

So I attended Jackie’s Workshop in Romsey (which is most incredibly beautiful space and setting) with a totally open mind and a sense of desperation. Jackie was amazingly friendly and supportive from the first moment I walked in, and I felt completely comfortable opening up to her about my hopes and fears. Not only was Jackie lovely, but my fellow workshoppers were also so warm, and there was a great sense of being in it together.

I spent 4 hours painting non-stop and I cannot remember the last time I concentrated on one activity for so long – and it was a fantastic feeling. It was like I was home – I had found my place in the universe again. (crying again).

Anyway, not long after the workshop I converted my spare room into an art studio, and I am now a part-time artist working my way up to using my passion to make a living, and have a job that actually feeds my soul.

Thank you Jackie  x

Sam - Ringwood

I have been with Jackie for all three levels of my Reiki qualifications, and I highly recommend her as a teacher.

As an empath, I am sensitive to vibrations and there is nothing but love coming from this beautiful human being. She felt like a friend from the get-go, that’s how at ease she makes you and I can’t help but admire her integrity and passion.

After every level, I have felt confident in using the technique’s she taught me and the great thing is, she teaches in such a way that it’s just like you’re spending the day round your friends’, chatting about life and having a giggle.

Between you and me, I believe she greatly undercharges, I have gained these qualifications in order to build a profession around the healing arts, and I have already made back the money I spent on all three courses, so book yours before she comes to her senses!

I did not want to be controlled by my anger and fear any longer!

I have been suffering from anxiety for years, looking back at it since I was a child.  I have had a build-up of things, as we all do, and had not dealt with them – hoping they would dissolve,  This year I have been through many emotions, and it had come to a head where I could not control my anxiety and fear any more.

I did not want to be controlled by my anger and fear any longer, so decided that it was time to find a way to either disperse it, or deal with the root cause.

I had looked on the internet to research ways of helping anxiety and came across Reiki.  I wasn’t 100% sure it would work, but I was so determined to get better that I thought “what have I got to lose, it’s a new experience and it will be interesting to understand and learn how it works”.

When I met Jackie, I naturally and easily let my guard down, which I don’t often do.  I found Jackie so warm, open and non-judgemental, that I found myself just talking and letting it all out.  I cried a lot, which again is something I don’t like doing – especially in front of a stranger.

Jackie explained to me what Reiki is and what she would do.  All I can say, which doesn’t give it justice, is that it was the most amazing experience and I have not felt so calm, relaxed and at peace with myself in a very long time.

Jackie gave me homework to work on myself, which I have done 3 to 4 times in between my sessions, and it has made a massive difference to my wellbeing, making me really think about what my triggers are and how to solve them easily.

I would say that if you are serious about changing, or wanting to make positive changes in your life, Reiki does work.   Jackie gives you the tools, and she guides you to make your own journey come true.

I am extremely blessed that I came across her.

Franki – Poole

Reiki Training … I felt I was being taught at a wonderful quality, with the utmost competence!

It has been a delight undertaking my Reiki levels 1,2 and 3 with Jackie Howchin!  Her personal, relaxed informative style of teaching put me completely at ease throughout the entire experience. Clearly very competent in Reiki herself, I felt I was being taught at a wonderful quality, with the utmost competence; combining this with her warm, humble disposition made for a genuinely enjoyable and satisfying education. I almost wish there were more levels, just so I could continue going back.

It was such a rare relief to be able to talk so openly and practically, about areas of life that are so often misunderstood and shrouded in mysticism. The sense of assurance Jackie gives anyone who is lucky enough to practise with her is a true gift.  A testament to her aptitude, there is no confusion or doubt when talking about Reiki, allowing the cynicism that usually enshrouds it to just seem silly.

Jackie provides a wonderful foundation, environment and guidance in the development and exploration of one’s intuition, allowing you to trust in yourself and, in so doing, to harness your personal skills of healing.

I am very grateful to Jackie for guiding me through my Reiki journey, and I hope to continue growing and working with her in the future.

Thank you very much.  See you soon.


James – Bournemouth

Thank you for helping to make my dream come true!

Eight years ago I made a phone call that has changed my life!   That phone call was to Jackie Howchin, who was recommended by a friend during an extremely difficult stage of my life, and these are my thanks to this wonderful person:

Thank you Jackie for helping me get my strength back!

Thank you Jackie for helping me get myself esteem back!

Jackie, thank you for helping me make my dream come true!!

I have followed my dream and moved to the south of France thanks to you , where I made myself a new life and never looked back, and have no regrets.   You helped me with your reiki, talks, wise advice and guidance.  We developed a beautiful friendship, and you are still always there for me!

Thank you for the healing visits you make to France, when you bring love and Reiki healing in huge quantities! You leave behind such beautiful energy, and remind me each time you come all this way to give me Reiki, just how lucky I am to have met you!
I thank the universe for bringing you into my life!

H - France

You made me believe in myself again
Thank you Jackie. You have been such an important part of me growing and changing. I will never stop thanking you.

You made me believe in myself again because of your complete and natural ability to heal, encourage and strengthen all those around you that you love. It just oozes out of you!!

Thank you xxxx

C - Bournemouth

When I met Jackie, I immediately felt comfortable and welcome

When I arrived for my first ever Reiki session, I immediately felt comfortable and welcome. Jackie has such a wonderful way of relaxing you, and explaining the process.  By the time I left I felt better, lighter, more positive and with a much better understanding of what has been holding me back and why.  I will definitely be returning and want to say a big thank you…highly recommended.

Matt - Bournemouth

I left feeling I had won the lottery
I went to my reiki session not really knowing what to expect. All I knew was that I felt broken, stressed and had a heavy heart. As soon as Jackie put her hands on my head I felt the weight lift and immediately felt lighter but was unprepared for the other gifts that were to come later….

Plagued with a difficult decision about life and work, I had a miraculous phone call later that evening that solved all of my concerns and preserved my peace. I went into my session half a person and left feeling I had won the lottery…. The universal energy worked in every conceivable way to make me feel whole again. Thank you Jackie so very very much xxx

You connected a ‘spark’

A lightbulb moment
Thank you so much for this On Reflection discussion session Jackie! I was surprised to learn so much; a lightbulb moment you could say. I’ve always felt inadequate because I didn’t have One Burning Passion! But it’s all there within us…you brought together a lovely group of people too. Xx

My piece of Healing Art
My piece of healing art ‘Find your True Self’ is so beautiful Jackie, I absolutely love it. It was definitely meant to be for me! You’ve brought me back down to earth, and given me the positivity to continue with these wonderful changes that I’m soooo ready to embrace. I love you with all my heart, truly deeply! Thank you! Xx

A massage for the soul
Receiving Reiki from Jackie is like a massage for the soul. Jackie is a lovely person, so kind and helpful and provides a wonderfully relaxing setting – so much so that I just don’t want the session to stop and look forward to having more Reiki very soon.

Gill - Bournemouth

Reiki Level 1 Training
I read a lot about selecting a Reiki Master. Having previously had Reiki with Jackie, I knew that for me it was an easy decision to make.
During Reiki Jackie’s heart warming qualities are present from the minute you arrive to when you leave, training is no different! A thoroughly enjoyable and truly educational day, delivered in a relaxed but informative way.
I can only say that I feel blessed to have Jackie as my Reiki Master, not just for her knowledge, but she is such a beautiful person too.
I have truly embraced the amazing gift of Reiki and can’t wait to grow and learn more and spread the joy and benefits ….. Thank you Jackie!

Claire - Bournemouth

Jackie is a pillar of strength
Wow! Today I had my first ever Reiki session and I chose to use Jackie. As we all know, things happen for a reason so maybe I was supposed to meet her. …and what a fabulous person she is.

Everything was explained to me in very clear and fine detail so that it could be easily understood. The actual session itself was exhilarating.
Jackie does not jump straight into the reiki part … she discusses everything and gets to the root of the issue. She is kind and sensitive and allows you to fully open up with any concerns or issues you have.

She is more than a reiki practitioner. She is more of a life guide /coach. Jackie is a pillar of strength and I am really looking forward to working with her to improve every area of my life.
Thank you Jackie … just for being you. xx

Sarah - Bournemouth

Jackie has a real empathy with animals
We contacted Jackie because our Yorkshire Terrier Milli was very hyperactive and sometimes showed signs of stress. After only three sessions she has calmed down considerably and seems much happier – although she is still a little excitable at times. This obviously makes us happier and more at ease. Milli seems to really enjoy the treatment she receives and it is lovely to see her more relaxed. Jackie seems to have a real empathy with Milli, you only have to see her working with Milli to realise this. We have already recommended Jackie to one of our friends as we are so very pleased with the progress she has made with Milli. Contacting Jackie was the best thing we could have done for all of us.

Ron and Daphne - Ringwood

I have no back pain
I met Jackie at the Mind, Body and Spirit Fayre in Chard, and after just a half an hour of her treatment I felt great – in fact I still feel fluffy and warm, very calm. I have no back pain from my kidneys, which I have had for a long time, and I have an inner strength which I have found since the treatment. I will definitely have more treatment with you again in the future.
Many thanks Jackie.

Susan - Chard

I had the most amazing Reiki session
I had a reiki session with Jackie at Torquay, I was going through a very hard time with my health, my solar plexus was so blocked, and I found it really uncomfortable… before I even had the reiki Jackie had picked up this. Then I had the most amazing reiki session. I felt so great after, I really did, I would recommend reiki to anyone, but having it done by Jackie is out of this world. She is so talented at this, I found this truly helpful. Thank you Jackie.

Robert - Sherborne

I felt relaxed and invigorated
I was very sceptical about Reiki as a healing process and slightly apprehensive on arrival. I was made to feel very welcome and left feeling relaxed and invigorated. I don’t claim to know how Reiki really works, but I can definitely recommend it to anyone. All I can say is “Thank You” Jackie.

Simon - Bournemouth

Reiki really works!
I met Jackie at the Torquay ‘Mind, body and spirit’ fair and was so relaxed and happy in her presence – she is obviously a truly beautiful person with beautiful energy overflowing from her, which is experienced during her reiki. I felt very relaxed and uplifted afterwards. Just before meeting Jackie I had an aura and chakra photograph taken and Jackie identified and unblocked a chakra that had been causing me pain without even seeing the photo – which I think is testimony that her reiki really works! Thanks Jackie xx

Amy - Torquay

I’m pleased beyond words
Just want to thank you for such an uplifting reiki session, I have had reiki in the past but from now on I will only be seeing you, I was positively floating after you worked on me and the difference in me was very noticeable by other people at the fayre afterwards. You have a natural gift and a natural good energy around you. I’m pleased beyond words I came to you. Thank you so much.

Fran - Christchurch

One of the best practitioners I have met
Jackie is easily one of the best Reiki practitioners I have ever met. She combines a personable yet professional approach with fantastic results to ensure you receive the highest level of treatment. She will aid with physical and energetic issues in a safe and positive environment. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.

Andrew - Bournemouth

I practically floated home
One of the deepest states of relaxation I’ve experienced, I practically floated home. Definitely be back for more!

Will - Bournemouth

I felt nurtured and completely safe
My first Reiki healing with Jackie took the form of a taster session and so was only 15 minutes long; however, in that short time, I was completely won over. It is wonderful. I have since had an hour session and will be going back for more. Jackie is a wonderful, warm, caring, compassionate and empathetic healer. She put me completely at ease. I felt nurtured and completely safe and was totally relaxed throughout the session. The atmosphere is calming, soothing and very peaceful.
My healing session highlighted 3 areas/chakras that were blocked, so Jackie focused on those for me, and she confirmed that the rest of the chakras were clear and that my energy was flowing. We talked afterwards about the ways in which I could work towards freeing any ‘stuck’ energy and I shall continue to have further healing with Jackie. I have absolutely no reservations about recommending Jackie. She is an amazing healer.

Gilly - Poole

I felt a complete serenity
There is something different about Jackies Reiki. I felt a complete serenity afterwards, something that I have not witnessed before

John - Sherborne

I was ‘Reiked’ by Jackie
I’m telling all my friends that Reiki is the way forward. I was ‘reiked’ by Jackie and the end result was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. I left feeling so clear minded and stress free, and problems and issues kind of just sorted themselves out in my head which is I think pretty cool – my friends must have some of this.
Thanks again Jackie.

Norman - Bournemouth

It’s like magic, and it really works
I don’t really understand how Reiki works but it is really positive. It’s like magic and it really works. I think Jackie is wonderful!

Les - Southampton

I now have the pain and discomfort under control
I discovered reiki with Jackie a few months ago at the Healing Festival at Bournemouth University, I was amazed by after just a ‘taster’ session how calm and relaxed I felt…I’ve since then been having monthly appointments with Jackie.
Three years ago I suffered an allergic reaction to an antibiotic which damaged my nervous system in my face, Jackie has helped me to remain calm, centred and focused, which with the busy and stressful life I lead, it is essential for me to remain in control of the discomfort I feel from my nerve endings. Each session has felt very beneficial, I now feel I have the discomfort in control, instead of it controlling me, feeling happier and more relaxed than I have felt for a long time. Throughout the treatment I can feel the heat flowing from Jackie’s hands, making me sink into a mellow feeling of warmth and happiness. I look forward to each treatment and continue to feel improvement each time. I can strongly recommend Jackie to anyone who like me is a victim of the modern busy life we all lead.

Janice - Poole

I can now face the world with my head held high
My husband died of cancer and I was a lost soul with no direction. I saw Jackie’s advert and thought why not. With the correct presence of mind we are capable of doing anything and Jackie restored my confidence and want to join the world again.
From the first session I was relaxed and Jackie has the capability to make you feel like your the only person who is important. She listens and cares for her clients with a true passion. The power of positive thought is a wonderful state of mind and with Jackie’s help I have achieved not only direction but also a desire for life.
I will never stop missing my husband but with Reiki and Jackie I can now face the world with my head held high. The deep relaxation is an all comsuming therapy and very enjoyable.
We should all have a Jackie in our lives.

Judith - Ringwood

Jackie’s help has completely turned my life around
If you are reading these testimonials because you’re looking for evidence that this may help you or may work for you then I’m glad I’ve written this, as this is why I went to see Jackie first. I was going through a horrible post-traumatic stress/insomnia/nightmare state and, having tried various treatments including antidepressants, was still trying to find My Self again. I’d read another client’s testimonial and it seemed genuine so I called her. Jackie is a wonderful lady and therapist. Her help has completely turned my life around and I am privileged to recommend her as a therapist and healer. If you are prepared to put some work in yourself, she will absolutely help you to make your life better.
I can’t thank her enough… she’s great. XX.

P - Bournemouth

After just one session I felt more positive and confident
I was referred to Jackie by a relative who had also been suffering from anxiety and stress. I had already seen the amazing effect that Jackie had on her, and I decided to try Reiki for myself. After just one session I felt so much more positive and confident. Jackie has a wonderful ability to make you feel like she has all the time in the world for you, and puts you at ease instantly. I’m so privileged to have met her and would highly recommend Reiki with her to anyone.
Thanks Jackie.

L - Bournemouth

I experienced a profound shift in my feelings
I came to see Jackie a year on from a gruelling divorce and exhausted from the rigours of single parenting two daughters. I had survived, but I was incredibly weary and still very angry. As someone who is a ‘coper’ and who usually gets through life with grim determination and a breezy “I’m fine”, I recognised that I hadn’t processed many of my feelings and the tools I was used to using i.e. my head, just weren’t working for me anymore. Therefore I turned to Reiki as a means of bypassing my head, and working with myself at an energetic level. I was sceptical that it would make any kind of difference and half expected it to be a nice relaxation but nothing more. After the first session however, I experienced a profound shift in my feelings. I felt lighter, freer, more full of love and gratitude for my life and my daughters, less stressed and considerably more open. Thank you Jackie for the very intuitive, loving gift that you have. I will also be bringing my daughters to see you soon.

Anna - Alderholt

Reiki Level 1 Training
I am writing to thank you for the Reiki Level 1 training you gave me on Tuesday. It was inspiring to witness your passion and enthusiasm for Reiki, importantly for me you also demonstrated this same passion for teaching the subject. It was truly evident that your motivation comes from your heart and not as is the case with so many, from the purse.

I had an amazing day, I will never forget it and it has opened a door to a different, more fulfilling life for me. I am eagerly looking forward to doing my Level 2 with you.

Thank you Jackie for being the wonderful you

Louise - Fordingbridge

Thank you for putting me back on the right path
Something was wrong, my emotional state had not been right for some considerable time. I thought I was on top of it until it proved me wrong. I am active in an adventure sport but had lost my bounce and confidence and was very apprehensive at the thought of partaking in an overseas expedition in a few weeks’ time. It was time for professional help.

Jackie understood and I came to realise that there was an identifiable cause for my troubles and, more importantly, a path to resolution. The cause of my troubles was identified quickly; baggage from a traumatic period of my past that I thought was well behind me. Through her knowledge and skills with Reiki, Jackie was able to get my healing process underway from the first session. She also advised me as to how I could help myself to assist my own improvement. I was surprised at how rapid my improvement was. Not only did I feel more in control of my emotional state but I was also being complemented on my skills within my sport. I got checked out for the forthcoming expedition with flying colours and on the expedition itself my skills were assessed as of a very high standard during some arduous conditions. This only came from the high level of self-confidence that Jackie had been able to impart to me.

Without Jackie and her skill with Reiki this would have been a rather different story. Thank you for putting me back on the right path, teaching me how to help myself and, most importantly, setting me up for the future.

Bob - Ashley Heath

Jackie is a natural healer
Jackie is a natural healer who has a deep empathy with people from all walks of life. Many will continue to benefit from her outstanding work.

Sean - Bournemouth

I felt healed, understood and listened to
Dear Jackie, I just wanted to say the biggest thank you. I have had Reiki in the past but have never experienced anything like the Reiki you gave me before! From start to finish my session was so helpful and I felt healed, understood, listened to, loved, safe and nurtured. You removed blocks I didn’t even know I had and have assisted in getting me back walking my true path. I will be back, you truly are heaven sent and amazing, to say thank you just doesn’t seem enough. I would highly recommend you to everyone, whatever they are going through. Fondest wishes. x

Sam - Poole

Reiki Level 1 Training
It has been seven days since I had my attunement and I shared the day with you completing my level 1 reiki. I have experienced so much negativity the last six months and have struggled to cope with accepting my illness. That has dramatically changed.

Words of praise from my Dad
Loving your Reiki and enjoying every moment of teaching Reiki is what life is all about my darling, helping others to appreciate the benefits of your experience and learning to make their life so much better. If they carry on and treat others only half as much as you do, they will grow stronger and get so much more from life. Well done sweetheart – keep it going xxx.

You made me believe in myself again
Thank you Jackie. You have been such an important part of me growing and changing, and for that I will never stop thanking you.

You made me believe in myself again because of your complete and natural ability to heal, encourage and strengthen all those around you that you love, because it just oozes out of you!!

Thank you xxxx

I left feeling I had won the lottery
I went to my reiki session not really knowing what to expect. All I knew was that I felt broken, stressed and had a heavy heart. As soon as Jackie put her hands on my head I felt the weight lift and immediately felt lighter but was unprepared for the other gifts that were to come later….

Plagued with a difficult decision about life and work, I had a miraculous phone call later that evening that solved all of my concerns and preserved my peace. I went into my session half a person and left feeling I had won the lottery…. The universal energy worked in every conceivable way to make me feel whole again. Thank you Jackie so very very much xxx

I can see the wood from the trees
The biggest thanks to Jackie who I’ve just had a Reiki session with. Wow I feel better!! Fantastic to be able to talk to someone so spiritually connected, in-tune and intuitive. She helped me make sense of so much that’s been going on lately, offering numerous lightbulb moments too! Wow, the Reiki was so powerful and much needed. I feel back in my power again, refreshed, enlightened, topped up, healed, nurtured and loved. Thank you Jackie, the timing of today’s session was perfect, and I am so hugely grateful to you. I can see the wood from the trees once more!

Now my future is bright, not black!
Where do I start…… I have Fibromyalgia. I am badly disabled with its pain and all its other symptoms. I was a nurse for 20 years. This illness stole that from me. I can’t care for my 2 year old son and therefore my partner cannot work as he is carer for both of us. I cannot walk any distance. A quick trip to the local shop destroys me. To say I was weighed down, depressed and defeated was an understatement. I felt useless, worthless and a burden. I met Jackie after my Mum contacted her as she was desperate to find a treatment that would help me. Up until recently I would have rolled my eyes at the idea. Being an ICU nurse my whole world has been founded in science and technology. The moment I met Jackie I felt her energy, her empathy and I cried. There on the street. I looked at her and asked what she had done?? Lol I can honestly say I was utterly broken when I met Jackie. Now after just 2 sessions I can say I’m not. After the first session I was drained, but the next day!!!! Wow!!! I was buzzing!! I hadn’t felt that good in so long I actually couldn’t believe it! My Mum was overjoyed to see such a change in me, like I said I couldn’t believe it myself. Of course the Fibro didn’t disappear, I did what we all do on a good day, I ran around like a loon and completely overdid it. Paid for it the next day. You know what though? I didn’t care!!! I had seen a glimmer of hope. The actual possibility of me not being crippled existed!!! My mum had paid for 2 sessions for me so I couldn’t WAIT for my next session and had done my homework as set by Jackie lol Oh wow. This time I was so receptive to Jackie’s treatment that I actually felt the energy flow through me. Its mad, and trust me I wouldn’t have believed it possible, but its true. I didn’t have the same wow buzz effect the next day, this time I wanted to sleep sleep and sleep. Thing is though, despite not having that big BAM result again, I have noticed an overall reduction in my pain. I’m waiting on a new drug therapy and with this I have to REDUCE my painkillers!! I should be in AGONY!! I’m not!! I’m in pain yes, I’m exhausted yes, I still have Fibromyalgia, but I’m also positive about the future now. As an aside I have also discovered that my healing days may not be over…..turns out I have a natural affinity with the healing energies associated with Reiki. Now my future is bright not black. Thanks to my mum and Jackie. I love them both

You are tons better than any anti-depressant!
I just wanted to thank you for totally changing my life in just 4 weeks!
I came to you in the depths of depression, with no light at the end of the tunnel. It is as if you have removed my dark glasses and changed them for rose tinted ones!
I can’t go so far as to say I’m ‘happy’, but I’m so contented and have so much more energy. I can do jobs I’ve been putting off, and this cheers me up too. I don’t understand half of what you are telling me about blocked ‘chakras ‘ etc but, hey, it works!
You are amazing and I wish everyone with depression or pain could come to you and have their lives changed too! You are tons better than any anti-depressant!
Love you lots!

You guided me back from the darkness
Dear Jackie,
When I came to you, I knew I needed help. I was very honest with you regarding my past and present troubles, in relation to just where I was in my life. You listened and understood that I was in a place where I didn’t want to be. So you took my life in your hands, and guided me back to a place where I was able to find my old self, and to where I desperately wanted to be. I have followed your guidance and have emerged from the darkness into a much brighter place. All my thanks go to you.
Thank you for your love and kindness

I felt relaxed, safe and loved
I visited Jackie for a coffee and a chat about life, she has a real wisdom which I found fascinating about the start of her spiritual journey and she really helped me understand where I was on this path. Jackie helped me to understand how I can use my new found knowledge and not be worried by it. She has a very calming influence and just being in her presence makes me feel relaxed and safe and loved.
Jackie then gave me a Reiki session, I’ve had Reiki before but not felt anything from it, but as soon as Jackie started I could feel my forehead and face tingling. It was the strangest but nicest of feelings, I could literally feel her energy as she moved down my body, each area where she hovered I could sense a pulling sensation as if energy was being pulled from me and dispelled out of my body. I went into a deep state of relaxation and just enjoyed the new sensation of feeling her energy pulling on mine. After the session, I asked Jackie what had happened, she said she was drawing negative energy from my body and drawing it down through my legs and out of the soles of my feet – and without once touching me. It was bizarre that I could actually feel this, but also I felt open and freer once she had finished opening my Chakras.
Overall it was an enlightening experience that left me feeling blissed out. Jackie has a gift that I will be tapping into again and can thoroughly recommend her should anyone feel they need Reiki or life guidance on spiritual matters.

You’ll be in good hands!
Jackie is a real treasure and one fab chick!
When I went to see Jackie I was really struggling with various difficult issues in my life. Boyfriend issues (whether to move in with him or not) issues with a few shocks from a parent’s illness and difficult relatives, plus a lot of residual stress from work had all taken their toll and I’d been awash in negative emotions, anxiety, and struggling to come back to the ‘old me’.
I knew I needed help – and having had Reiki before, knew what a beautiful energy therapy it can be. Meeting Jackie was wonderful. She is a very down-to-earth and lovely, caring lady. Her approach to healing is very thorough – she is very warm and caring and will do her utmost to help. She helped me to see a little more clearly some good first steps to take to coming back to myself.
Her intuition is very strong, and she honed in straight away on the people around me who were problematic and draining my energy, and which chakras were blocked, etc. She also was able to trace a physical injury I had to a time when experiencing problems which were affecting me emotionally. (All of this made absolute sense to me – it’s only Western medicine which often takes injuries etc. in isolation and doesn’t think to link them to other issues we may be struggling with, whether they be emotional/psychological and/or spiritual.) She also gave me advice on additional steps I could take to heal. Jackie injects enthusiasm, love and care into her work, and you get much more help and care than you would usually from a Reiki session – she really does go above and beyond to help you. And it’s a treat to receive the Reiki – it’s like a bath of warm energy.
If you are considering having an energy healing, I would recommend Jackie wholeheartedly – you’ll be in good hands. Thank-you, Jackie.

My personal development has been enhanced
Undertaking the Reiki Level 2 Attunement with Jackie Howchin, I found Jackie’s approach very professional with some excellent advice and direction based on her Reiki knowledge and past experience. Additionally, Jackie also provided sound direction on the legalities and ethics of Reiki as well. My personal development has been enhanced to a high degree and, based on the sound advice and wisdom imparted by her, I feel well placed to set up my own Reiki practice.

Reiki Level 2 Training
Dearest Jackie, Thank you so much for making my Reiki Level 2 training such a wonderful day. My energy levels feel very different after the Attunement, and I feel much lighter and more connected. I am really excited to start practising. Thank you for sharing all your knowledge and for taking the time to make the session so personal. I feel confident knowing that you are there if I have any questions or worries. I am so glad I found you as my Reiki Master.

Put an end to my social anxiety and panic attacks
When I came for my first Reiki session I didn’t even realise how much it would help me. Jackie has managed to do an amazing job from the very first day, making me feel at ease when talking about my history with social anxiety and panic attacks. Even after just one session, I was feeling reborn, having all of my chakras fully open. I was finally able to fully express myself and enjoy being in social situations – something I haven’t had the chance to feel in many years. After taking a few more sessions, I feel that I have improved in every single aspect of my life, as well as finally put an end to all my social anxiety and panic attacks. I am extremely grateful for the healing received. Thank you once again!

Nothing short of a miracle
After experiencing a huge emotional trauma, which left me unable to concentrate on day-to-day tasks, I had a beautiful session with Jackie which restored me back to a calm and balanced person, which was nothing short of a miracle. Jackie is my life-line, and I am able to call her for guidance and support in moments of crisis. I value her so much that I travel from Switzerland to see her.
