Optimal Health


John Ramsay,  Reiki  Master, Jikiden Reiki Practitioner,  MA Classics, PGCE, Advanced Certificate in Counselling.

I have spent my life in the pursuit of healing body and mind. That journey has led me to learning about the link between body and mind through training in holistic massage and learning to meditate then learning how to give hands-on healing with Reiki and other forms of energy healing. I am fascinated by the different types of complimentary healing approaches and am continually seeking out new information and the increasing scientific verification of energy healing. As well as giving information about the therapies I practise the aim of this website is to connect with you and give you some of my take on this fascinating subject through a regular blog.

Reiki is  a light-contact energy healing treatment which helps body and mind. It is a balancing therapy – if a person’s system is more in balance ill-health symptoms fall away.  Treatment lessens the negative effects of stress,  reduces physical pain, lessens depression and anxiety and improves energy levels. It can help improve sleep, lessen symptoms of asthma and arthritis and reduce the side effects of medication. It can help with chronic and longstanding health issues. Reiki can assist the body’s self-healing mechanisms to address any health issue.

A Reiki treatment takes place with the client lying fully-clothed on a massage table with a covering blanket while the therapist lightly places their hands in a sequence of positions on the front then back of the body. This lasts for an hour during which the client will usually feel more and more relaxed.

I have been a Reiki Healing Practitioner since 1995 and am a Reiki Master Teacher and Karuna Reiki Master Teacher. 

I have recently also trained in Jikiden Reiki which is Reiki as it was originally practised in Japan (from where Reiki originated). Before World War II, Reiki was very popular in Japan, with more than one million people using it regularly for their physical and psychological health. Its founder, Mikao Usui, had established the first Reiki organisation – The Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai – which, incidentally, still exists today.

For a period I am offering Jikiden Reiki sessions for £15 per session (1-1.5 hours).
