Review by Emma Jefferys (AKA Action Woman)

Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to experience a Tera-MeiTM Reiki session with the very lovely Dorothy Winter. I am completely open to all kinds of healing and alternative therapies and whilst I didn’t know what to expect I was very excited as I headed off to meet her. 


As she welcomed me in to her very cosy, peaceful and candlelit healing space I knew I was going to be in for a treat. Dorothy put me at ease instantly as we chatted a little about this particular form of Reiki and what to expect from the session. She explained that the session would consist of clearing my aura and working with the energy that presented itself, some colour visualisation and some breath work. 

As I was tucked up under ‘bear’ (a super fluffy and warm blanket that truly deserves it’s name!) I felt safe and peaceful and was encouraged to relax through some guided breathing. As Dot applied gentle pressure to my feet and legs (a process I now know to be grounding) I relaxed even further and just felt very peaceful and calm. 

I was aware of Dot’s movement in the room as she worked to clear my aura but most of my attention was on the vibrant colours that danced in my head behind my closed eyes. They brightened and darkened as she worked around me and I felt a sense of warmth flow through me. Dot expertly guided me through some breath work where I was encouraged to breathe out limitations and judgements, instead replacing them with joy, love and peace through the in breaths. After this I drifted off as she continued the energy work and when my attention was brought back to the room I felt so peaceful and also a little confused. Confused because I can’t quite put into words what happened in this session. I certainly felt lighter, freer and quite emotional. Like something significant had changed without me being able to describe what, how or why….which I realise is not helpful when attempting to write a review. But I can promise you this, you will leave a session with Dorothy a different person from the person who walked in, in the very best possible way. It may have been even further enhanced by it being a beautiful full moon (what were the chances!) but she is a very special talent and I cannot recommend a session with her highly enough. 


I have slept so well since the session and cannot wait to go back for another treatment. Dot is passionate, knowledgeable, approachable and hugely talented. Most importantly of all she comes from an authentic place of service and her intentions are so clear -  she wants to help you be the best you can be by letting go of what holds you back and making room for all the good stuff. If you’ve been meaning to give Reiki a try then get in touch with Dorothy - you won’t regret it.
