My Approach

Initial Consultation

First appointments take 60 minutes which include a 10 to 15 minute consultation.

Depending on the reason for your visit, Jasmin will decide on whether Shoden, Okuden or a combination of both is the most appropriate approach.

Shoden (Hands-On) Treatments

Shoden requires in-person treatment. It uses the laying on of hands rather than working just in the aura/subtle energy bodies with specific hands-on Jikiden Reiki techniques.


When working on the head and face it is usual for a soft natural clean cloth to be laid across the eyes of the client. This helps to promote both deeper relaxation and also optimal hygeine practice while working near the eyes. This is usually a 'Tenugui' cloth, which is a traditional Japanese cotton cloth.

During a session, clients lay in comfortable clothes on a treatment couch to receive the Reiki energy. There are also blankets or sheets available for a client's individual comfort.

Reiki has been known as a natural form of hands-on therapy carried out by the facilitator placing their hands on (or sometimes around) the body of the recipient. 

In doing so the facilitator allows the flow of Reiki and passes this to their client usually via the energy pathways of their hands.

The way Reiki is delivered will depend on the Reiki tradition that the facilitator is following in.

Adaptations can be made in the event that a person does not wish for 'hands-on' for some parts of their treatment. But it is generally considered that the laying on of hands in optimal in Jikiden Reiki Shoden.

Okuden (Hands-off) Treatments

Okuden is a hands-off aspect of Jikiden Reiki, particularly aimed at supporting psychological wellness, with a focus on mental and emotional aspects of well-being.

Okuden treatments can be given to a client while they are seated or laying down. Okuden sessions are 30 to 60 minutes when done on their own. 


If you wish to have both Shoden and Okuden treatments together, you will usually need a 90-minute session.

Enkaku (Distance) Treatments

Enkaku sessions may be given across distance and can support overall well-being on all levels as well as supporting the treatment of specific issues from physical to emotional.

Enkaku sessions take around 45 to 60 minutes and it is recommended that you spend time resting during and after a distance treatment. Please email Jasmin for more information.
