I'm Justine Nolan and I am a Reiki Master Practitioner/Teacher and founder of East London Reiki.
I was brought to Reiki through a period of ill health and surgery. After trying various lifestyle changes yet continually becoming ill and having low energy levels, I was frustrated and feeling low. One day "Reiki" just popped into my mind and before I had even researched fully what it was I found myself booking my first treatment with a local practitioner.
My first experience with Reiki was mind-blowing, I didn't know that it was possible to feel sensations of this kind! I felt waves of energy pulsating through my body, saw colours in my mind's eye, felt a comforting warmth and had a much needed, long overdue emotional release. Added to this, in the days following the session I experienced an increase in energy and a sense of reassurance and connection with myself I had not felt before.
It's clear looking back, that from my first experience with Reiki I hoped that one day I could facilitate that healing for others. More Reiki sessions followed and not only did my energy levels continue to improve, I also started to gain insights into my own condition. It was a gradual process but I began to connect with my mind, body and spirit, and to manifest positive changes in my life. Healing was taking place and a door into a beautiful new world had been unlocked.
Once I was feeling stronger in myself and I realised that we all have the potential to activate and learn self-healing, I took my Reiki 1 course. Following that course my outlook on life naturally changed and a spiritual path opened up ahead of me. I had never felt so happy, fulfilled or at one with myself as I did when sharing Reiki. Soon, I left my career in the corporate world and committed myself to bringing the benefits of Reiki, love and light to others.
I feel very fortunate to have found Reiki and to have started the journey towards healing and wholing on all levels. It is with joy that I introduce this wonderful therapy to clients and with the community through my voluntary work with Age UK, Crisis, St Joseph's Hospice & the Namaste program for Dementia.
