Cardiff Reiki Chakra Balancing -
Reiki treatment in Cardiff
The word Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) comes from ancient Japanese and translates as ‘Universal Healing Life Force Energy’. The Japanese word ‘Ki’, its Chinese counterpart ‘Chi’ as well as the Indian ‘Prana’ all refer to the highest vibration of electromagnetic energy which engulfs and surrounds the entire Universe.
The Reiki healing energy force makes us the emotional, thoughtful and caring people that we are.
CNHC Registered and fully recognised by most insurance companies
The CNHC is a government sponsored registration body for complementary healthcare practitioners.
The Department of Health advises all GPs to direct patients seeking Reiki to seek out only CNHC (the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council) registered therapists.
As Reiki is a pure and natural energy force, it can work to improve our daily life, our health and emotional well-being. Reiki can improve the effects of aromatherapy or conventional medicine as well as reduce the side-effects of drugs and harsh Chemotherapy or Radiology treatments. Reiki is not a form of massage treatment. Reiki is considered a way of promoting therapeutic healing.
Traditionally, the Reiki natural energy force is said to have seven main Chakra centres, flowing from the tip of our head to the base of our spine. Occasionally, the flow of this Reiki energy is blocked or hindered – thus the need for Reiki balancing and chakra healing.
Reiki Cardiff Testimonials:
An enlightening experience. I found Philip, (city marshall) while on the internet looking for somewhere I could get some relief for back pain, that I have had for quite a long time. I have several illnesses one being Multiple Sclerosis, which is the worry of my life, so I contacted Philip and made an appointment. It was the best decision I have made in such a long time. After the first session, my back felt so much better and to my astonishment I was now walking in a straight line. Before this, I was very unbalanced and would keep bumping into people while out. I am now on my third visit and things have improved greatly for my total health. Philip seems to love what he does and puts so much of his energy into each massage it makes you feel replenished. He has provided me with so much information dietary wise and is a very knowledgeable man. After years of popping pills, Philip has shown me that there are other natural ways of helping yourself and I can honestly say I feel so much better for taking his advise. I would recommend everyone to visit him at least once in their lifetime, he is a total gentleman who is brilliant at what he does!!

I have done a number of sessions of reiki and shiatsu with Philip.
I feel much calmer and generally have a better type of energy as well.
Philip is very professional and he tailors a treatment to your particular needs.
All in all I would highly recommend Philip to anyone that I know.

With his expert care and professional manner, Philip seamlessly blends sports massage, Shiatsu and other complementary therapies, including dietary advice. His attunement with his clients' needs is second to none and his gentle and intuitive composure makes you feel relaxed and in extremely capable hands. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He has helped me with anxiety, IBS, a trapped nerve and all manner of other discomforts.
Went for a sports massage and reiki healing after being recommended by a friend. Absolutely delightful, a very lovely man and such a delightful experience. I left feeling very relaxed and knot free, would highly recommend.

I have always been interested in Reiki, so when I decided to give it a go, I researched the best practitioners and came across City Marshall. I was very impressed with the service and used it regular twice a week. I couldn't believe the transformation. Amazing Service

Reike massage. My sciatica has flared up on me recently and I needed it to be in a good shape. I found Marshall Massage very helpful. The session was physically and spiritually healing and I desperately needed it.

A very gentle atmosphere to experience. A very calming and stress free environment.
Philip especially is a very polite and informative individual who was most helpful. I would recommend City Marshall to anyone who is seeking a relaxing experience.

I attended City Marshall for a course of Chakra healing and Shiatsu massage. The whole experience was wonderful. This has to be the best therapeutic practice in the whole of Wales. Philip is the consummate professional and he certainly has some extraordinary gifts. I can wholeheartedly recommend this practice. Many thanks Philip.

Excellent massage treatment. One thing that really makes City Marshall Massage stand head and shoulders above most other therapists I have seen on my travels, is his adaptability and willingness to tailor make a treatment to your own personal needs. You might be surprised to hear, but I had a 60 minute deep tissue sports massage followed by 30 minutes of ... Reiki ... and the combination was amazing. The muscle tension was all gone and I felt a huge release of blocked energy. I never thought that a massage can be equally energising and relaxing - but it can. Really fantastic therapist!

Fabulous reiki treatment. City marshall massage is one of my favourite places to visit for alternative treatments. I have recently had several reiki treatments with Phillip and I have been thoroughly impressed with the quality and standard of treatment received. I was able to connect straight away with Phillip during my first session, which really helps if you are having reiki treatment as it helps the energy to flow more freely. He did identify several deep blockages within me but after several treatments with him these blockages have slowly been released and I really feel so much more calm, relaxed and re-energised after each treatment. I will most certainly be going back for regular top ups and am also keen to try out the many other fabulous treatments this practice has to offer. If you are looking for a great massage or any kind of alternative remedy then I would highly recommend city marshall, try it once and you won't want to go anywhere else.

My Reiki healing session was wonderfully calming. I was given the opportunity to choose a handful of crystals that seems to give me an even greater sense of inner peace. The whole building has a tranquil healing effect, the reiki treatment room is beautifully relaxing and the healing powers of Philip are very powerful. Certainly recommend a visit!

I was suffering with stress during the first trimester of my pregnancy and was given a session with City Marshall as a gift from my husband. I didn't know what to expect, but was calmed by the consultation. After discussiong my symptoms, Philip was able to combine treatments to suit my needs. I had a mixture of Reiki and Shiatsu and can honestly say that it was such a relaxing and calming hour. The feeling stayed with me all day, and I can't wait to return to City Marshall.
Rhiannon Williams Cardiff, 10 March 2013
It took me no time at all to relax in the peaceful surroundings and the mellow reiki music. Marshall has tremendous reiki healing powers and his extensive knowledge of shiatsu acupuncture points is spectacular. We have both booked in for another session already and are still very mellow three days after our reiki treatment :-)

The Reiki treatment was very professional. I felt warmth all over the body and feeling a lot of frozen stress disappear. I felt relaxed and a feel good factor. Seen light and colours. I will recommend this Reiki and Shiatsu to all my friends.
Irenke Herbert Cardiff, 7 March 2012
My various experiences of complementary therapies at City Marshall, included Reiki and therapeutic massage, have all been the best ever. On each visit I experienced deep relaxation. After one Reiki treatment I can recall feeling completely chilled out until the following day which was quite remarkable. I went home feeling as if I’d just returned from two weeks in the sun!
I felt I was in the safe, extremely experienced hands, of a skilful complementary therapist who has invested time and energy studying Reiki therapeutic skills from various Masters around the world. After visiting numerous health spas over the years, City Marshall tops the lot! I won’t be going anywhere else from now on.

Your Reiki Healing Questions Answered
Do I need to be religious / is reiki a belief system?
First, no, you do not need to ‘believe’ in the reiki treatment to receive reiki benefits, as the power of Reiki is self-driven and it will flow to the places where it is needed. It does, however, help if you trust in the reiki practitioner and accept that they aim for ‘good’ and for your betterment.
Reiki is not a religion, although it does have a spiritual nature. In the same way that one may benefit from Acupuncture, Acupressure, Shiatsu and Thai massage – the benefits of Reiki are to be judged by its results.
Does reiki involve any inappropriate hand placement in the sacral area?
Absolutely not. The lower-most chakra is the sexual organ and it is called the ‘Base’ or ‘Root’ chakra. This can easily be addressed and balanced with Reiki by suspended hands, about 3 to 4 inches away from your body or by hand placement in a direct line away from this area.
