Reiki Practitioners

We have a number of our local students (see below) and a few not so local, that have trained over the years at 'Relax and Heal with Reiki' and are now working for themselves as Reiki Practitioners.

In order to become a Reiki Practitioner and work with the general public, you need to have completed all 'Requirements for Certification' at Level 2/2nd Degree Reiki at the very minimum.

These requirements are within the guidelines of 'The Reiki Association' and 'The Reiki Council', and are expected to be followed by all Reiki Practitioners. 

A number of our students have reached Level 3/3rd Degree Original Japanese Reiki and therefore hold the title of 'Reiki Master Practitioner and or Teacher'

The page is currently being updated as I received the relevant information offering their services.

We support all Reiki students whether going through the levels just for themselves, and their loved ones, or for working towards building a professional business venture.

Michelle Groves

Rising Lotus

Location: Beyoutiful (Sandbach)

Local Reiki Master Practitioner: Sandbach, Cheshire

Welcome, I am Michelle and I started my Reiki journey in 2013 with my wonderful teacher Natalie.  My first intention was to help people through using this lovely healing energy and relaxation practice.

I soon realised it was an inner journey of mindfulness and compassion, with the emphasis on healing the self first, getting back to your 'true self', and this is something we can do, through the healing work of Reiki. 

A regular practice of meditation and mindfulness forms easily and naturally as you begin your healing journey, working on yourself from the inside, using the Universal energy of 'Reiki'.  The practice allows me to hold a healing space for others, whilst the lovely gentle healing energy works on the client, enabling them to deeply relax and then healing is possible on every level.  


I continue to learn and practice with Natalie, and have a thorough understanding of both Western and Original Japanese Reiki, as we build on the practices, going deeper into the system of Reiki.


In recent years I became interested in Indian Head Massage as another alternative therapy, through reading, practice and experience, I soon realised this too was energy work.  Each practice complements the other, and I completed a course on Indian Head Massage in 2019.

Being able to offer both these healing modalities for the well-being of others is something I am very passionate about.  Helping others, seeing the positive difference it can make to someone else's life, is one of the most satisfying feelings you can have.

Other passions of mine include walking in nature, which further supports my mindfulness practices and my love of all things 4 legged!  I am the owner of 'Wags to Whiskers' which offers a dog walking, and pet care service in the local Sandbach area.


I have completed the following levels in Original Japanese Reiki:

  • Shinpiden (Reiki Master Practitioner and Teacher - 3rd Degree) - September 2018

  • Okuden    (Reiki 2nd Degree) - April 2014

  • Shoden     (Reiki 1st Degree)  - Nov 2013

Cost: £30 for a 1 hour session for either Reiki or Indian Head Massage or a combination of both (the session includes consultation and after care)​

Dates and Times:  Flexible - simply get in touch and we can arrange a day and time that is convenient.

Catherine Green

Goldstone Reiki 

Location: Cheshire Lasers, Middlewich

Local Reiki Master Practitioner: Middlewich, Cheshire

Hi I am Catherine, Welcome to the wonderful world of Reiki.  I am an experienced Reiki Practitioner trained in the original/traditional Japanese tradition of reiki healing. My lineage comes from Mikao Usui, the founder of reiki as we know it.


I have 15 years’ experience in meditation practice, mindfulness, working with crystals and sound therapy, and I would like to share this wonderful healing gift with you.

My reiki practise will focus on mindfulness and easing mental health challenges from a holistic perspective, encouraging you to examine your thought processes and perspectives and learn to heal from within. We all need a break from our busy lives, and I’m here to give you a chance to rest just for an hour, so that you can recharge your batteries and calm your mind.

Book your reiki healing session today and take care of yourself from the inside out.

For more information about what reiki healing involves see this article.


I have been studying the practice and history of Japanese Reiki therapy with Natalie since 2016, and hold the following qualifications:

  • Shinpiden (Reiki Master 3rd Degree) - January 2020

  • Okuden    (Reiki 2nd Degree) - May 2017

  • Shoden    (Reiki 1st Degree)   - Sept 2016

I have followed a spiritual path for almost twenty years, having explored Tarot reading, dowsing, mediumship, meditation, crystal healing and other holistic therapies. 


What to expect in a treatment?

So, what happens in a reiki treatment? Magic! All you need to do is lie down on the therapy bed or sit on a chair if you prefer, close your eyes and relax. The session lasts for around 40 minutes, during which time I channel the universal energy that is freely available to everyone. It will permeate your body, clear some of the rubbish from your mind, and help you make sense of your busy life. Regular reiki treatments should leave you feeling more balanced, less anxious, and happier with yourself and your situation.

Costs £25 - Approx. 1 hour session (the session includes consultation and after care)​.

You will receive 10% discount on your first treatment and keep watch on my social media channels for special offer codes and other discounts.

I am available at Cheshire Lasers on the following days:

Monday – 9:30am until 2:30pm

Tuesday – 12pm until 5pm

Wednesday – 9:30am until 2:30pm

Saturday – 9am until 12pm.
