I’m not sure whether it was because of the article in the Mail Online, or the universe, or the weather, but last month, October, I gave the most reiki treatments that I’ve ever given: 51!
That’s almost two a day, every day, including the weekends. In reality, I had quite a few days where I gave three treatments, and a few days where I did none.
None of my clients mentioned the article itself, but I do think that it would have boosted my Google listing and just made it easier on the internet to find me. I also wondered, with all the rain (it was a really unusually rainy month in Sydney), whether clients were thinking of things they could do inside… and if the rain didn’t make some people a bit more melancholy or stressed out than usual.
It was a happy month for me! I kept to my limit of three treatments a day, and I found that I was able to balance the treatments with my other work as a freelance editor. Sometimes it did feel a little busy, getting bookings and enquiries throughout a day, and then making sure I’d put them into my calendar and my online booking calendar. I had two no-shows, which is unusual, and a few last minute cancellations.
My regular clients didn’t mind that this was the month I put my rates up from $75 to $80, and as usual, I met lots of nice and interesting people. Even though sometimes clients come in a bit of a state of distress or anxiety, I often get the sense of what nice people they are regardless. And I feel grateful for the opportunity to have a practice where I can bring people relief from some suffering and give them a helping hand, and I get the chance to meditate, and be still during the treatment. How lucky I am!

Clients come from all over Sydney to see me, and I’ve also had clients who are visiting Sydney from Melbourne, Brisbane and the Gold Coast come and see me while they’re here for business, conferences or meeting families. 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.
