About Reiki

Reiki is a subtle but powerful healing and stress management technique using energy channeled through the hands of the practitioner. Brought from Japan to the west in the 1940s, Reiki is now widely practiced around the world.

Reiki is is now known to be extremely low frequency (ELF) electro-magnetic energy. The signals recorded by scientific instruments from the hands of practitioners are of frequencies known to stimulate healing effects on nerves, bones and other areas of the body. Although science can only measure effects on the physical plane, the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects may also brought back to balance with Reiki.

Reiki is an intentional practice.  The technique is simple and can be learned in a one-day workshop.

My Practice

Born and raised in Canada, I’ve lived in Southeast Asia since 1989. I was drawn to learn energy healing while living in Singapore in 1994 and a year later took the advanced level.  In 1997 I apprenticed with Reiki Master Juliette Munro for 18 months before taking the Master/Teacher level with her in 1998.

In 25 years of teaching I’ve trained over 1300 people from all over the world including doctors, engineers, Buddhist nuns, alternative healers, business executives, yoga teachers, animal welfare workers and children.  I also work with and teach Reiki to caregivers and people with chronic illness, cancer and other challenges.  I’m certified as a Reiki Teacher by the Canadian Reiki Association Member #RT 07-137.

My Teaching Philosophy

My own Reiki education was poor. We were 65 people in a hotel ballroom for Rl, had no hands-on practice, and received neither a manual nor follow-up support.  The next year in the advanced class we were 25 people, again without a manual or follow-up support. I left both classes without a mentor and deepened my practice by working on as many people as I could over the next few years.

When I became a teacher myself I was determined that my students would receive the best education I could give them.  I trained no more than two students at a time (I now only teach on-on-one) in order to be able to fully meet their personal needs. I provide a comprehensive manual and offer open-ended follow-up support by email. Even many years after training, students are welcome to contact me with questions.  Once I accept  a student, it is for  my lifetime.

My Courses

I teach the traditional Usui system of Reiki which is in three levels.

I teach Basic Reiki (Rl) and Advanced Reiki (Rll) as full day one-on-one certificate courses.  I offer Master/Teacher training  (Rlll) to practitioners who have had at least 100 hours of hands-on practice and ideally some teaching experience.

I am now semi-retired and  teach only one person  a week, so please book your class at least 3 weeks in advance.

I also offer Reiki sessions.

My Reiki experience with Cat was nothing short of magical. Her gentle manner and knowledge were an inspiration and I will always remember the time with her. She explained Reiki with depth, insight, patience and encouragement and I left feeling blessed. Needless to say I can’t recommend learning Reiki from Cat enough.  LH, England

I undertook Reiki Level 2 with Cat as my Master. Immediately I felt comfortable and secure with Cat. Her knowledge and passion for Reiki is immense and she is an incredible and very supportive teacher.  I knew instantly that I could not have found anyone better to be my Reiki Master and the beautiful energetic environment that she works in makes it all the more special. Thank you Cat, I will forever be grateful for meeting you and I will definitely be seeing you again to continue on my Reiki journey.  AO, Australia

Cat is an exceptionally gifted channel for healing and I highly recommend a session with her. I traveled to Ubud from California to lead a spiritual retreat and I was drained and exhausted.  After the session I felt physically and emotionally recharged, and the energetic high continued for days after the session. JE, USA

My entire day from the beginning to end was magical.  Warm and inviting, Cat captured the essence of Reiki and empowered me to feel confident in helping myself and others. I have used Reiki on friends, family members in hospital, and my children.  It was the highlight of my trip to Ubud with sweet and fond memories, and a lifetime friend. MG, Australia

Cat provides a gentle magical space to learn Reiki, not only physically but also energetically. I felt so aligned learning this practice from her. She teaches Reiki using a solid and simple methodology, keeping it away from the many complications that the field of energy healing sometimes imposes. Cat makes this practice instinctive, fun, and very much in synch with nature, with yourself and the flow of the universe. I’m deeply grateful to have been her student.  MT, Saudi Arabia

I have done Reiki attunements I and II with Cat Wheeler, and I could not ask for a better teacher.   Cat is genuine and her way of teaching is clear and simple.
Taking my attunements with her was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life.  I have now incorporated Reiki into my daily life as a mother, a yoga teacher, a scuba instructor and a Reiki practitioner.   It’s incredible the way Reiki practice has changed my life for the better.  Thank you, Cat, for teaching me this amazing practice and for being who you are!   RS, Indonesia

Thank you Cat. You do great work. I wanted to express my appreciation for the service that you provide.  I’ll never forget the experience I had with you and the other students on the days I did the Reiki with you.  I appreciated your practicality and the way you explained things in such a simple but effective way. I understand more clearly now about the different brainwave states and their significance with respect to health and healing.  I liked very much the personalised kind of experience you offered and feel very fortunate to have found you as my Reiki teacher.  BC, Australia
