Laurie Paterson

Reiki Master/Teacher & Holistic Therapist

My journey into the world of holistic therapies began over 15 years ago. I have always been drawn to the vibration of others and also healing modalities that can blend and meld with ours, to create balance and harmony for each of us that feel drawn to work and heal in this way. I am a therapist who supports private clients, no matter what challenge or health condition they may have.

 

The first form of healing that I studied with Roisin Munn, and then practiced, was Reiki, which has developed and changed as years have gone by. I practice traditional Usui Reiki, Usui Holy Fire II Reiki, Usui Holy Fire II Karuna Reiki and Reiki Drumming.

 

As a Master Teacher of both Traditional Usui Reiki and Usui Holy Fire II Reiki, I teach both of these in small classes, allowing me to give students my full attention during study.

 

I also offer Reiki shares quarterly for my own students and those taught by other Masters, allowing them to come together for healing and for the sharing of ideas and experiences.

 

I will happily travel to students for 1-2-1 training or to small groups that may not be able to reach my location easily.

 

All of these studies and activities have allowed me to develop both spiritually and professionally.

 

Other modalities that I have studied over the years are Reflexology, Maternity Reflexology, Tibetan Reflexology, Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Pregnancy Massage, Thai Foot Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Hopi Ear Candling and Stress Management/Clinical Hypnosis. I have also trained as a Certificated Infant Massage Instructor, an Angel Healer and Crystal Healer.

 

I have also completed spiritual training with Jim Currie and Claire Tomlins, Glasgow. Attending these courses amplified the modalities that I was already practicing. I have been honoured to receive all 9 Munay Ki Rites from Lorna McLean and attend a Women’s Circle in Glasgow. This has recently encouraged me to create my own Women’s Circle; a time when women can gather to support and encourage each other as we heal and become the empowered women that we truly are.

 

A very special part of my career has been working as a therapist in Ardgowan Hospice, Greenock. I cared for patients, carers and staff members during my time there, and after attending courses within Hospice, gained knowledge in the care of Renal patients, Lymphoedema Patients and also how to adapt treatments for patients with Cancer.

 

As years have passed, I have found myself gently releasing many of my therapies and now focus solely on Reiki, Reflexology, Stress management with Clinical Hypnosis and Crystal/Angel Healing. This allows me time to also offer Reiki Classes, Reiki shares and Sacred Women’s Circles.

 

I am a Verified Member and Master Teacher of the UK Reiki Federation and also a Member of the Complementary Therapists Association (Embody).
