About Erika

Hello, my name is Erika Beale and I am passionate about helping others feel happier in their lives. I am a Reiki Master Practitioner and Teacher and primary school teacher in Oxfordshire, where I live with my husband, two boys and two dogs.

I became interested in Reiki during a particularly challenging time in my life, and after hearing one of my close friends talk about the positive effect Reiki can have on anxiety and depression. I received my first cycle of treatments and was astounded by the results. This led me into my first and second degree Reiki training, after which I began treating family and friends.

My curiosity led me to read some fantastic books written by Frank Arjava Petter and Frans and Bronwen Stiene. These books were an inspiration to me, and through their positive outlook, made me want to find out about traditional, Japanese Reiki, so I trained with Tadao Yamaguchi, and then Frans Stiene, co-founder of the International House of Reiki, which deepened by understanding of Reiki and also gave me the tools to take care of my own wellbeing.

I now feel very grateful to be able to offer Reiki treatments and training to others.

I have learnt that there is no magic cure for mental illness, nor complete freedom, but there are ways to drastically reduce the effect it can have on your life. Reiki is one of those ways.

Testimonials for Erika

Erika is a warm, caring and thoughtful person. She made me feel very welcome when I went for my first Reiki treatment with her. My session lasted 70 minutes, and for the first 15 minutes I lay comfortably on the Reiki couch listening to the tranquil music that was playing softly, while Erika began lightly placing her hands on different parts of the head and body. In itself this was soothing, and then I fell into a deeply relaxed state similar to a light dream sleep though still with awareness of the treatment continuing. By the end of the session I felt very rested, my normal aches and pains had calmed, and my mind was peaceful. It was a wonderful experience and Erika's professional training and practice really showed. I would highly recommend Erika to anyone who is thinking of trying Reiki.

I went to Erika with a plethora of medical problems. After attending several Reiki sessions at her beautifully equipped and relaxing home salon, I felt like a new woman! You are made to feel totally at ease and all medical declarations are totally confidential. The Reiki itself is lovely enabling you to drift off into a world of peace and tranquility. I would thoroughly recommend Reiki sessions with Erika as she is both professional, personable and the whole experience is extremely uplifting. It is well worth a visit, just for the experience and to see how much difference it can make to your overall health and wellbeing.

I've been having treatment for a few months now and can really say Reiki has helped my anxiety and in turn reduced my tinnitus. Erika is a wonderful therapist and Reiki is a fantastic alternative therapy. I would recommend The Reiki Room in Minster Lovell.


Perfect calm setting, I loved the process of the 3 treatments, wonderful experience on the day and long lasting - Erika is discreet and professional, I would not hesitate to recommend.

Having the set of three Reiki sessions was a really wonderful experience. Erika really puts you at ease and is supremely calm and wise. The treatments were all deeply relaxing. Having tried various alternative treatments for anxiety and depression, this is the method that really made the difference to me.
