Anne Hulme


My name is Anne Hulme and I am a Reiki Master Practitioner and Crystal Healing Practitioner. 

I have been attuned to the Reiki Energy for approximately 8 years and am also qualified to teach Reiki at 1st Degree, 2nd Degree and Master's Level. 

Alongside my work at Riverside Wellbeing, I am a volunteer at the Beechwood Cancer Care Centre in Stockport, offering Reiki to cancer patients who attend there.



What is Reiki?
Reiki is a difficult treatment to explain and is better experienced than spoken of, but I will do my best to explain the basics! 

It goes back at least 2,500 years and is spoken of in the Ancient History of Japan. The mystery of Reiki was unravelled by Dr. Mikao Usui in the late 18th Century.  The word 'Reiki' can be split into two:  'Rei' meaning 'universal or spiritually guided' and 'ki' meaning 'life force energy'.  It is the equivalent to the Chinese Chi, or the Indian Prana.  You could say that Reiki falls into the 'intangible' aspect of life as it cannot be easily packaged in a way that our logical minds fully understand. 

It is generally understood that physical illness can often be the result of storing beliefs that we no longer have use of, or painful emotional experiences within our systems which, in turn, manifest into physical illness.  Whilst a large number of people acknowledge this fact, most of us do not know how to effect the necessary changes.  The problem being that we are dealing with the subconscious and that can feel a little overwhelming at times.  Reiki can help by assisting in removing 'blockages' that can prevail into illness and because it is a Universal energy, it always works for your highest good.

Reiki works holistically and will always give you what your body and being need.  Reiki works without judgement and always with compassion, gently balancing our whole being and bringing harmony into our lives, it gives us the means to understand ourselves and step outside our limitations.

Reiki energy has an accumulative effect on our bodies, so the more we work with it, the better the results!

You can experience Reiki by having a treatment, or by being attuned to the Reiki energy yourself, by undertaking training.

What is Crystal Healing?
I also practice the Melody System of Crystal Healing.  Many people seek alternative ways of treating our ailments, alongside traditional Western medicine, and the use of crystals has, over the years, flourished.

We use crystals everyday without really realising it, we put rock salt on our food or we wear gemstones or semi-precious stones.  The use of crystals is, like Reiki, an ancient practice, which goes back many thousand years.  Today we use crystals to balance our Chakras (Chakras are the energy points of the body). A crystal treatment would always start with a full consultation so that the therapist can gather as much information about you as possible, in order to use the 'right' crystals.  The treatment is very relaxing, and non invasive and you may experience a tingling feeling as the energies start to shift within the body.

The word 'crystal' comes from the Greek word 'Crystallos' meaning 'Ice Cold'.  It was believed that crystals were ice that was so cold it would never melt.  Around 1700 this theory was replaced by the idea that crystals grew in set patterns.  This has been scientifically proven correct - if they are broken, for each particular crystal, although each piece may be a different size, they are always the same shape.


All matter is made up of energy.  Everything on this planet has energy around it.  There is a specific vibration which surrounds each and every object on the planet.  When we are feeling well, our bodies have a specific vibration, but when we are feeling sick (or suffer dis-ease), that vibration changes.  Crystals, because they have a 'set' formation, do not alter their vibration and can, therefore, be useful in bringing the body back into line with the crystal's balanced vibration.
