Louise Clarke chatted to Amber Doyle of Amber Moon Holistic about Reiki, a form of energy healing, which is a complementary therapy to clinical treatments.

Amber told Louise about how she wanted to learn a new skill, aside from her career in marketing and events, during lockdown. She is currently in the middle of studying a Reiki Level 2 Diploma and will qualify as a practitioner in January 2022.

Learning about Reiki as a form of holistic healing opened Amber’s eyes to trying out other alternative treatments.

It encouraged her to be more mindful of her own well-being and healing journey. She realised that Reiki would be beneficial to many after the stress that came with living through a global pandemic, and all the lifestyle changes it brought with it.

People use Reiki to relax their body and mind; reduce pain, anxiety, stress and fatigue; help manage symptoms of minor and chronic illness; reduce side effects of medications; and support recovery after injuries or surgery.
