About ReikiEma

Hi - I'm Ema!

I'm a geeky human, with a passion for learning, self-development, holistic and complementary therapies, and helping people (of all species) to live their best lives!

I found my calling after working in the Public Sector for over 10 years, when Reiki came into my life, and I realised that this was what I was meant to be doing - not the high-paid Senior Project Management role I had worked so hard to achieve.

I'm so blessed to do what makes my heart happy!

I opened my business in early 2020, as soon as I qualified as a professional Reiki practitioner - and despite my (arguably questionable) timing, I'm still very much here - still being flexible, and managing the curve-balls we've all become familiar with, over the last couple of years! I've always thrived on being creative - finding new ways to take my work forward, supporting and helping others - and myself, too!

I'm now a qualified Reiki Master Teacher, offering Reiki courses and Reiki Shares to give the local Reiki community to get together, and share some lovely Reiki, ideas and experiences, and a lovely brew and a chat (also very important!). I started volunteering during lockdown: I am so blessed, and it is really important to me to give back and help causes I'm passionate about. It's my dream to be able to do more of this, in the future - and I'd love to open an Animal Sanctuary/Rescue, combined with an Animal Reiki school and healing/volunteering retreat for humans! 


I've achieved one of my big goals, and am now an accredited Reiki Professional Practitioner with a UK Reiki Federation-certified diploma, and am registered with the CNHC (the UK Government's Complementary Therapies. I'm also a UK Reiki Federation-accredited Reiki for Animals Professional practitioner - having volunteered giving Reiki to the animals at my local RSPCA centre, I realised that working with other species is a huge part of my calling - and what a blessing and a source of learning it's been, too!

“Ema is always so calm, understanding and patient with the animals. She is … extremely adaptable to suit each animal's needs. Most of the animals which come into our care have suffered abuse or neglect which Ema shows true compassion towards. …. We are all immensely grateful for the time and commitment Ema gives and would 100% recommend her service to anyone and any animal which needs additional help/support.” ~ Alana Bibby, Animal Welfare Team Leader, RSPCA-WHS


I am a Therapeutic Meditation teacher, a Holistic Acupressure practitioner and Shiatsu diploma student at the Manchester Shiatsu College. All of this learning/experience in  different therapies, is something that informs my Reiki work, as well. 

(Check out my Media page for a flavour of the different fields I have involvement in, as well as some of the ways I integrate all these areas together across my work!)

As a "multipotentialite", my interests, passions and vision are always far-reaching, and I'm definitely an ideas person - so watch this space for more updates on exciting new directions and threads to the tapestry of my Portfolio Career! You might also be interested in reading some of my published articles in the Shiatsu Society Journal (August 2022 edition) which is also linked on my Media page, you'll also find the link to an interview in Mystic Mag (an online magazine). Whilst you're there, why not check out the fascinating video of a Panel discussion I took part in (also available to watch on YouTube), discussing our beautiful and challenging experiences of bringing Reiki to Rescue Animals, with Sue Malcolm, the UK Reiki Federation's (then) Animal Reiki Lead.

And if (like me) you're intrigued by reading reviews, the main 3 places you can find my client's feedback are:

1. Google (self-explanatory!);

2. The Client Testimonials page ;

3. Trustpilot (I'm still fairly new to Trustpilot, but there are a few reviews up there, for you to peruse).
