About Me

My name is Frances Rayner and I am a fully qualified and insured complementary therapist with over 10 years experience.  I specialise in ShiatsuReiki, Indian Head Massage, Oriental Face Massage and Counselling.

I abide by the code of ethics and professional conduct set out by the Shiatsu Society and UK Reiki Federation, the two leading professional bodies for Shiatsu and Reiki in the UK.

As a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) I work within their ethical framework.

I am incredibly passionate about the work I do and the healing opportunities complementary therapies and counselling can offer.

My own experience of Complementary Therapies

The first Reiki treatment I received was a catalyst for my own personal transformation and journey in self-healing. I use Reiki as a tool for personal development and on-going self-healing.

The first Shiatsu session I received was very powerful. I felt deeply relaxed, re-energised and inspired to learn more about the oriental approach to health and well-being. I knew straight away that I wanted to train to work as a Shiatsu practitioner and started my diploma at the Devon School of Shiatsu in 2009.

Training and Qualifications


I studied Reiki over 6 months with Lesley Oates at Truro College (VTCT) and gained my Level 3 Diploma in 2009. I completed my Level 3 Reiki Master training with Lesley Oates in 2010 and am qualified to teach Reiki Levels 1, 2 and 3.


My professional training at the Devon School of Shiatsu involved monthly tuition, home study, regular practice (250 treatments), a 3 month work placement at The Hall for Cornwall, continuous assessment and on-going personal development. After 3 years I graduated with a Diploma in Shiatsu from The Devon School of Shiatsu in July 2012.
