Julie Anderson is Reiki practitioner and teacher with more than 30 years’ experience. Her courses are based on the teachings of the traditional Japanese System of Reiki.

This is Julie’s story.

I began my Reiki journey in 1996, when feeling drained and grieving the loss of her mum who had just passed away, I went for a massage and also received my first Reiki healing experience.

I left feeling like I was walking six inches [15cm] above the ground. It was a beautiful gift from my mum. For the next 18 months, in one way or another, Reiki kept reappearing in my world. I finally stopped resisting and in April 1998 my journey of self-discovery began.

Initially, I studied the western way of Reiki with three different masters. In 2006 I travelled to Australia and re-sat my Reiki Level 3 with the International House of Reiki. While doing so I experienced a feeling of ‘coming home’.

I have enjoyed a long career as a Reiki practitioner and had the privilege of spending seven years supporting terminally ill patients to find peace and calmness.

Teaching Reiki is hugely rewarding for me. My aim is to provide students with the most comprehensive and up to date information about the teachings, as well as a strong energetic connection to the founder Usui Mikao.
