Simo Reiki offers specialist Reiki based healing practices.
What is Reiki?
The word Reiki is composed of two Japanese words – Rei and Ki. When seeking a definition in a vocabulary we will find that Rei is a Ghost (spirit) and Ki is Energy.
In my words and more on a spiritual context, I like to say that Rei is the “higher Intelligence” that guides the creation and functioning of the universe. It is the law that makes everything work as it is, the wisdom that permeates everything, both animate and inanimate. This subtle but most powerful wisdom guides the evolution of all creation ranging from the unfolding of galaxies to the development of life. On a human level, it is what help us in times of need and what guide us in our lives. Because of its infinite nature, it is all knowing. Rei is also called God and has many other names depending on the culture that has named it.
Ki is the non-physical energy that animates all living things. Ki is flowing in everything that is alive including plants, animals and humans. When our level of Ki is high and flows well in all our body we feel strong, confident, and ready to enjoy life and take on it’s challenges. When it is low or doesn’t flow properly because of blockages we feel weak and more likely to get sick. We receive Ki from the air we breath, from food, sunshine and from sleep. It is also possible to increase our Ki by using breathing exercises and meditation. Ki is also the Chi in China, the prana in India, the Ti or Ki in the Hawaiians and translates in English as life force energy.
So Reiki can be defined as a non-physical healing energy made up of life force energy guided by the “higher Intelligence”. As it’s guided by an higher Intelligence it cannot be controlled by the mind, therefore it is not limited by the experience or ability of the practitioner. It can’t be misused or overused, create new problems or aggravate existing ones and always creates a healing effect.
Healing is not always what we think it’s good for us (in our mind) nor what we expect. The essential thing is trust. Reiki it’s guided by higher forces and there is no doubt will create and provide the healing conditions necessary for the individual’s needs at the right moment.
How does Reiki heal?
Our health comes from Ki that flows through us, not necessarily from the functional condition of our physical body. It is Ki that animates the organs and tissue as it flows through them and therefore is responsible for creating a healthy condition. If the flow of Ki is disrupted, the organs and tissues will be adversely affected. Therefore, it is a disruption of the flow of Ki that is the main cause of illness. Ki will flow stronger or weaker depending on the quality of our thoughts and feelings. Put simply, negativity can lead to illness and positivity can keep us healthy. Even traditional medicine recognises the role played by the mind in creating illness and some doctors state that as much as 98% of illness is caused directly or indirectly by the mind.
It must be understood that the mind exists not only in the brain, but in the whole body. The nervous system extends to every organ and tissue. It is important to known that the mind also extends outside the body in our energy field called the aura.
The places where negative thoughts and feelings are stored in our body is where the flow of Ki is restricted. These cause blocks and if not eliminated can lead to illness. Blocks in our subconscious mind are the hardest to release. Not being aware of them make it more challenging to change or eliminate them. The value of Reiki is that because it is guided by the Higher Intelligence, it knows exactly where to find them and how to deal with them.
As Reiki flows through these blocks, it releases and washes them away allowing the flow of Ki to resume. As this happens the unhealthy physical organs and tissue becoming nourished with Ki, will start functioning at their best and healing.
You have the power to heal yourself. Reiki will open up the blocks and allow energy to flow… Like water, everything will come to surface. You might experience pain, discomfort, resistance… sometimes it needs to get harder to get better… it’s all for your own good. Reiki will make you aware of your power, unlock your confidence and inner strength.
Chakras & Reiki
The main 7 chakras run from our head down the spine. Our chakras are a power bank that give us strength and vitality. Being aware of how balanced or unbalanced our chakras are will help us make changes to our lives and gain good health.
Reiki works by allowing energy to flow through our body via these energy centres. Anytime we act in a certain way, an emotion relating to that action can cause balance or imbalance. Reiki can help you recognise an imbalance; a patterned way of thinking, emotions related to acts or words of someone else, or not listening to your inner self. Looking inside our selves and bringing awareness to our feelings, we will learn how they are signals and clues that guides us through healing.
The 7 main chakras
Root chakra (base of the spine) Survival instincts. When balanced this chakra brings us security. “Fear” affect this chakra.
Sacral chakra (lower belly) Emotions & sexuality. Opens us up to what we desire and brings us pleasure. “Guilt” affect this chakra.
Solar plexus chakra (stomach) Power & enthusiasm. When balanced we are confident and have healthy self-esteem. “Shame”affects this chakra.
Heart chakra (centre of chest) Love and compassion. When balanced we can love deeply and a deep sense of peace. “Grief” affects this chakra.
Throat chakra (throat) Communication and self-expression. When balanced we speak our truth and we can be our true self. “Dishonesty” affects this chakra.
Third eye chakra (eye brow centre). Intuition and soul knowledge. When in balance it teaches us to trust. “Illusion” affects this chakra.
Crown chakra (top of the head). When balanced this chakra brings us wisdom and spiritual connection. It awakens us to feel “at one with all”. “Attachment” affects this chakra.
With reiki we can learn to understand the emotions that help us or block us. Bringing awareness to the root cause of emotions, allowing us to accept them as they are and let them go when not needed.

Reiki is best held in a peaceful setting, but it can be carried out anywhere as long as it’s quiet. You will preferably lay down or sit on a chair, fully clothed. There may or may not be music, depending on your preference. I always suggest music as it helps you to go deeper into your subconscious.
When I’m connected and energy is flowing through me I will start the session . I will places my hands lightly on or over specific areas of the body using different hand shapes, for between 2 and 5 minutes. The hands can be placed over 20 different areas of the body, in proximity of chakras and /or areas that need it the most. If there is a particular injury or pain, the hands may be held just above that specific area. While I hold my hands lightly on or over your body, the transfer of energy takes place. During this time, you may feel my hands warm and tingling. Each hand position is held until I sense that the energy has stopped flowing in that area.
For distance Reiki treatment, like the hands-on, you will preferably lay down or sit on a chair.
Using a Reiki symbol called “space & time“ I send energy to you with my intention, without physically touching you. Energy is not tangible, we can’t see it or touch it, doesn’t follow material rules that’s why is not limited by time or space.
The effectiveness of this practice is as good as the hands-on treatment, with the benefits of being able to be anywhere at anytime. With this special technique I’m not only able to work at a distance in space, but also in time. I could heal a traumatic event from your past or send healing and protective energy to a future challenge or situation.
The use of crystals amplifies the effect of a reiki treatment. Crystals act as a conduit for energy, I find it magical how the universe supplies them with their own distinctive colours and qualities, providing many different healing properties relating to them. Every crystal, depending of which colour, helps us heal a different chakra.
For example: violet, white or clear stones are for the crown chakra; dark blue or indigo are for the third eye; light blue or turquoise for the throat; green or pink for the heart; yellows for the solar plexus; oranges for the sacral chakra and red or dark stones for the root chakra.
Not only do stones vary in colour but also have many different properties. We have crystals specialised in healing emotions like jealousy, grief, promoting self-love and confidence, connecting us with our spiritual guides and/or with people that have passed.
During a hands-on session, I may place various stones or crystals on your body aligned with the chakra points or on other parts of the body that might need an energy boost. I can also use crystals for distance treatments in a similar way.

Meeting Simona has been one of the most eye opening situations for me. I was getting more and more lost in my ways and my anxiety. Once starting with Simona things started to become clearer in my mind, even straight after the first session. Her care and love for me as a individual was very obvious, which made me feel safe, loved and I felt like I could share and dig deeper into my subconscious, which is where the trauma and pain usually finds itself.
We started by doing Reiki and then slowly Simona added crystals which definitely enhanced the experience, the energy was powerful and healing. Since starting Reiki with Simona my life has been getting a little bit brighter and better every day. I don’t feel as hopeless as I did.
When I first met Simona I was in so much pain (muscle spasms) in my back that I didn’t know what to do with myself. After the first treatment I felt so relaxed, with a wonderful feeling of calm, I was completely amazed how she could make me feel better without even touching me. Her kindness and generosity flows, such a lovely person. My pain has gradually eased and I’m coping well with it. I’m looking forward to another treatment soon.
I think that having met Simo has been a very gratifying response from the universe, since at the moment I met her, I was living a moment of transformation in all senses, blocks and beliefs that I didn’t even think were In my head have been gone through Reiki, it has given back more confidence in myself, I have learned to say NO without explaining myself, which was very difficult for me, I have learned more to trust life.
I have to thank Simo for the absolute disposition that she has put in me and to be a great professional in Reiki treatment.
Reiki healing with Simona has been absolutely outstanding. During the healing sessions, I often feel a strong connection to my late aunt, which has helped me immensely to emotionally process her passing, and to regard her life with a more celebratory attitude, as opposed to sadness and grief. Simona is also gifted with an impressively strong intuition, and was able to identify problems I am having with my mother before I mentioned them to her at all. She is also emotionally supportive on a personal level, and has taken up almost a mentorship role in guiding me through my personal problems. Every revelation within the sessions is so profoundly beautiful and emotionally charged, and I am so grateful to have Simona in my life.
Hi, I’m Laura, I was lucky enough to have been the first to have a Reiki treatment from Simona … My enthusiasm was not disappointed because after the first one my psycho-physical well-being benefited … I still remember that feeling of tranquility and lightness that I had not felt for a long time … after doing the other two I can say that my state of well-being has continued over time. The thing that heartens me is knowing that whenever I need it she can do it even from a distance. Thanks Simo !!!
