Clients sometimes expect Reiki Surry Hills to be a clinic or shop. But nope, the reiki room is located within our apartment! While there are certainly offices for physiotherapists and chiropractors, and there are a few clinics that offer a variety of treatments (like massage) that might include reiki, I am not sure whether there are any shops or clinics in Sydney that focus on reiki alone. It’s just not well-known enough in Sydney or Australia, and even then, the costs of renting a storefront or office space would probably cancel out any income (or I’d have to charge a lot more)! And it would also limit the hours of when I can offer treatments.
So, if you come for a treatment, you’ll be welcomed to my home. I think the space is quite nice, and have put effort into making sure that it’s comfortable. I think that with around 950 treatments having taken place in the room, it’s got a good energy too! The other benefit is that you might get to meet my adorable cats, and I can offer flexible hours for treatments (including on the weekends).
There are a few drawbacks. You might hear noise from the neighbours or the street (although arguably this could happen in a storefront too). My husband works from home, so occasionally you might hear someone else in the apartment (though we try to keep it as quiet as possible during your treatment). There’s no waiting room, so if a client brings someone, they need to be quiet and share the reiki room. Also, if I’m the only person home, and there’s a delivery or another enquiry at the door, I have to interrupt the treatment to get it. I think in all these years of treatments, it’s only happened a few times though. Same if one client arrives quite late and the next client arrives early, I’d have to get the door. But in the few times this has happened, neither client has minded (the first one being interrupted and the second one waiting for a few extra moments until I’m ready to let them in). In any case, I’m glad my clients have been understanding with the fact that Reiki Surry Hills is in a private residence, with its benefits and disadvantages.
The latest news is that I’ve got a new carpet! The old one was fine and serviceable but had started to fray at the edges. I can’t believe how easy it was to find a new carpet in a colour I like (I’m going with light green, to match the plants and to have the feeling of bringing the outdoors and nature inside) and at a very reasonable price, delivery included. Actually, unless the carpet turns out to be not as nice as I think it is, I’m happy to recommend them: AU Rugs!

Visit my website or Facebook page for more information and SMS, email, call me or book online if you’d like to make an appointment. Since 2011, I’ve given over 900 reiki treatments.
Clients come to relieve stress, anxiety and for many other issues, or to just give reiki a try to see what it does for them. Folks come from all over Sydney and elsewhere to see me. While it’s easiest to get to me from the CBD, Darlinghurst, Paddington, Kings Cross, Redfern and Potts Point, I’m pretty easy to get to from anywhere in Sydney.
