Reiki Treatments, Oxfordshire

Reiki re-balances the energy centres (chakras) and restores your body’s ability to rejuvenate itself.  This treatment works very deeply on all levels.


The ancient healing system of Reiki has its roots in ancient Tibet. By acting as a channel for the divine energy of the universe, your practioner can re-balance your energy centres (chakras) and restore your body’s ability to rejuvenate itself.  This treatment works very deeply on all levels – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Your practitioner will use a combination of touch and hands-off work within the energy field.

Reiki can instil a profound sense of wellbeing and leave you looking and feeling radiant and at peace. Reiki can be used to treat all conditions and is particularly recommended for chronic conditions and more serious emotional/mental and physical illnesses that you may be having difficulty shifting or getting to the root of.

Isolde Stammers

For a number of years I have looked into alternative ways to address disorder or illness with alternative therapy such as Shiatsu, and Homeopathy. This led me to discover Reflexology, Reiki and Holistic Massage. I was impressed with these therapies and went on to study to become a practitioner. Now qualified, I wish to help others achieve a better understanding of health in a whole way, looking at the relationship between body and mind for that individual. I get a great deal of satisfaction from my practice of Reflexology, Reiki and Holistic Massage, and my clients’ positive results that can be sometimes life-changing.

I was born and brought up in London, and gained a BA in Comparative Literature at The American University of Paris and University College London. I study painting and drawing, and write poetry.  I live with my husband and our two sons in Oxfordshire.

For bookings, please contact Isolde by email or by 'phone 07767 345858.

Nicola Tew (holistic massage)

Nicola has lived in Faringdon since 2003. She began the journey of holistic practices back in 2013 when she completed her British wheel of Yoga foundation course, 'A journey through the chakras'. She was working in schools at the time and had seen a rapid decline in Children's mental health. In her pursuit of finding resources to support children, she came across Relax Kids. Relax Kids is a seven step programme which offers an unique system of children's relaxation mindfulness that helps decrease stress and anxiety, increases attention span and improves physical wellbeing.

Since doing the training, she has worked freelance in schools, offering six week programmes and wellbeing days. Nicky is now looking forward to offering sessions at the Lotus Retreat. 

Over the last three years, Nicky has also qualified in Reiki, Reflexology and Holistic Massage, and we welcome her to our team at the Lotus Retreat.
