End of the year reviews

No, this isn’t a review at the end of the year of the year that came before it. It’s just a few reviews, that I’ve been meaning to post, at the end of the year. I’m going to get in trouble for this word play some day…

In any case, it’s been ages since I’ve posted up some reviews. Which is silly, because it’s such a pleasure to share them. And I think it helps give potential clients (like you?) an idea of the range of outcomes they might have from a treatment.

These are from my online booking site, Bookwell (which you can get to by clicking on the blue button on my front page, or the contact page):

Andy is very listening and welcoming. I felt very good during and a few days after the session. He knows what he is doing and makes you feel comfortable straight from the beginning. I highly recommend him!
Mimi – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – visited November 2018
This was my first proper, full reiki session and I had high expectations that it would be effective but didn’t actually know how I would feel within the session or after. I thought that it might actually make me feel worse initially, rather than better, as part of the ‘cleansing’ process (I’ve heard that this can happen). But I was pleasantly surprised, I left feeling about 3kg lighter – physically and emotionally! It was the reset I needed to start my journey to feeling ‘well’ again. I will definitely be back next time i’m in Sydney.
Jayde – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – visited October 2018
Andy was great, very professional. This was a new experience for me and I could feel the heat radiating off Andy’s hands. It was very surreal! The space is beautiful and I left feeling very calm and relaxed. I would definitely go back.
Gwenaelle – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – visited October 2018
Reiki was for me an incredible experience. I have been suffering of an IBS for a couple of years and have had stomach issues from a very young age. While modern western medicine did not bring me any help, I started to understand we are energetic beings. My first reiki treatment brought to my awareness that I was repressing and holding on a lot of emotions in my body. I believe Reiki is an incredible help for healing. I am very grateful to Andy and I highly recommend to visit him.

I also received two nice reviews on my Facebook page that I haven’t reposted yet:

Andreea: Andy was amazing! He really listened to my concerns and provided the helping aid that I needed. The treatment was relaxing. I felt much more lighter and was in a better headspace after our session. I had issues with my ear and a muscle spasm on my back. After our session, I was super pleased that my body healed and everything went back to normal again. Definitely going back for another session! 🙌💗

Jess: This is such a special experience! Andy can work magic in many areas of life. Highly recommended 5 stars.

🙏 I’m very grateful to my clients who have taken the time to share their experiences and kind words 🙏🙏🙏

How clients find me! Reiki Surry Hills


I love how clients find me.

It seems mysterious but I suppose it’s not. After all, my website is pretty easy to find on Google. The closest train station to me is Central. There are a lot of people who live or work near Surry Hills.

But I still find it a bit magical. There are quite a few other reiki practitioners in Sydney (I’ve been working my way up the google rankings, and at the moment am halfway down the second page!).

So, it does require clients to find me somehow. During these last busy months, I’ve found that I’ve been getting good word of mouth, where clients are referring me to their friends, or even enthusiastically giving their friends treatments as gifts. One client treated two of his staff members. Another client sent her lawyer for a treatment. And another brought not one but both of her sisters!

I also have been building up a nice group of return clients. As you’ll know if you come for a treatment, I always send a follow-up email, and sometimes two, and try to keep in touch. At the same time, my clients are able to notice the positive changes and benefits for themselves, and then make the time to come in again when it feels right to have another treatment.

Most of my clients come from Google searches, and to add to that, a fair number have come in because of the positive reviews (thanks reviewers!). I can see that these clients are happy to do some research, and they want to make sure if they come in for a treatment that it’s a practice that is trusted and receives good feedback. I myself wouldn’t trust a business as much if they don’t have any reviews at all, and at the same time, I’ve noticed at least one other reiki business that has fake reviews (all the same language but different names of reviewers!). But I think people can spot fake reviews pretty easily.

I spend so much time on Facebook in my personal life that I thought that I might get clients from my Facebook page, but to tell the truth, I’m not sure if anyone’s ever come through Facebook, though I’ve had some enquiries.

A number of people come because it’s the most convenient location for them, since it’s pretty much walking distance from Potts Point, Darlinghurst, Redfern and even the city. Some clients have been visiting Sydney and staying in accommodation (or having meetings) close by). One client lives farther away but combines a treatment with visiting her parents who live closeby! But a recent client decided to treat herself to a few hours in the city and came all the way from the Shire.

Finally, it’s nice to know that clients come because they’ve visited my webpage and get a good feel from it. I’ve had a number of clients say that they liked the vibe of the site, or that they’d visited other reiki websites and didn’t really click with either the way reiki was described, or the reiki practitioners themselves. It’s not to say that one reiki practitioner will be better than another, but certainly if you like the energy that you get from my website (and Facebook page), then you’ll hopefully also like my energy in person. It’s important when having a treatment to be able to feel comfortable and safe.

In any case, however you find me, I’m glad! I look forward to seeing you for your next reiki treatment!
