Jenni's Gentle Healing


We don't sell creams, potions or snake oils

Jenni’s Gentle Healing is about experience and healing.  Based in Milnerton in the Cape, we have a dedicated healing room, with all the ambiance needed to ensure proper Reiki.  We open our facilities in the afternoons to those who are interested in experiencing the benefits and by arrangement, and for the busy executives, during weekends and early evenings.  Sessions and courses are run by an experienced Reiki Master and teacher.




In a Reiki session, the client lies  or sits comfortably, fully clothed. The practitioner's hands are placed lightly on or just above the client's body, palms down, using a series of different hand positions.  The number of sessions depends on the health needs of the client. Typically, the practitioner delivers at least four sessions of 30 to 90 minutes each. The duration of Reiki sessions may be shorter in certain health care settings (for example, during surgery). Practitioners with appropriate training may perform Reiki from a distance, that is, on clients who are not physically present in the office or clinic.

The type of Reiki practiced and taught by Hayashi and Takata may be considered Usui traditional Reiki. Numerous  schools)of Reiki have since been developed and are currently practiced.

Reiki is based on the idea that there is a universal (or source) energy that supports the body's innate healing abilities. Practitioners seek to access this energy, allowing it to flow to the body and facilitate healing.

Although generally practiced as a form of self-care, Reiki can be received from someone else and may be offered in a variety of health care settings

The word "Reiki" is derived from two Japanese words: rei, or universal, and ki, or life energy. Current Reiki practice can be traced to the spiritual teachings of Dr Mikao Usui in Japan during the early 20th century. Usui's teachings included meditative techniques and healing practices. One of Usui's students, Chujiro Hayashi, further developed the healing practices, placing less emphasis on the meditative techniques. An American named Hawayo Takata learned Reiki from Hayashi in Japan and introduced it to Western cultures in the late 1930s.

Reiki is a healing practice that originated in Japan. Reiki practitioners place their hands lightly on or just above the person receiving treatment, with the goal of facilitating the person's own healing response.

People do not need a special background to learn how to perform Reiki. Currently, training and certification for Reiki practitioners are not formally regulated.

Reiki changes and heals every area of life that needs healing. The healing takes place as a result of the energy raising the vibrations of a being closer to that of the original or ideal design.


Reiki practitioners often channel this energy for world peace. Healing can also be sent to distressing situations. There is no limit to the ways in which this wonderful healing energy can be used for the good of all. See how Reiki can be of benefit to you.


Tell your health care providers about any complementary and alternative practices you use. Give them a full picture of what you do to manage your health. This will help ensure coordinated and safe care.







People use Reiki to promote overall health and well-being. Reiki is also used by people who are seeking relief from disease-related symptoms and the side effects of conventional medical treatments.

Scientific research is under way to learn more about how Reiki may work, its possible effects on health, and diseases and conditions for which it may be helpful.


Reiki has historically been practiced as a form of self-care. Increasingly, it is also provided by health care professionals in a variety of clinical settings.



Once attuned to Reiki the energy is constantly available to the healer. With Reiki we can heal ourselves. In the process of healing we are never drained of our own energy. This is ensured by the attunement given by the Reiki master.


Reiki is a sacred practice that requires reverence and our greatest respect if we are to experience its most wonderful value. The benefits of Reiki can be all encompassing, not only giving us the ability to heal ourselves and others, which by itself is deeply meaningful, but also bringing guidance for our lives. Its unlimited nature can create opportunities for continual growth, unfoldment and the awakening of our own boundless potential. The ever increasing joy, peace and abundance that await those who sincerely pursue the path of Reiki are not only a blessing to be enjoyed, but also contain the healing that the planet so dearly needs. Those who have been initiated into Reiki often feel this greater potential and aspire to continue on to the Advanced and Master levels.

Natural Self Healing Therapy

Crystal Bed


Crystal Bed Therapy is more than your average energy healing session.


It is a multi-sensory, meditative, cleansing experience that takes you into greater realms of depth and the subconscious mind.

What is a Crystal Bed?

The Crystal Light Bed incorporates different types of vibrational therapies, combined into one healing session.  A crystal bed has seven extremely clear and highly polished quartz crystals suspended about 12 inches above the client lying on a massage table.

Each of the quarts crystals has been cut to a specific frequency.

Each of the crystals is aligned above one of the seven human energy centers or chakras.

Coloured lights, chosen to match the chakra colours, radiate light and energy through the crystals to each respective chakra, and shine on and off in certain rhythms to cleanse, balance, and align your energies.  The individual receiving the session rests face up with eyes closed, bathing in the energy.

The sessions are very healing and integrating.



How does it work?

As the colour is transmitted through the crystal onto the corresponding Chakra, the chakra is cleansed, energized, and brought into balance with all of the other chakras. This allows the other aspects of our self, whether it be mental, emotional or physical to be brought into balance. For when the chakras are out of balance, all the other aspects of ourselves will also be out of balance. Then as these subtle energies are brought into balance, the body's own natural healing mechanisms are able to function as they were designed to do. The "Crystal Bed Healing" cleanses, balances opens, and recharges the body's energy creating a deep relaxation. It is also a great preventative modality. And in the end, we may not know exactly all the ways that it works, but we do know it does!

What will I experience?

People feel all manner of sensations during and after sessions - pressure, weight, lightness, heaviness, hot, cold, wind, all manner of body sensations, tickling, tingling etc. The crystals can evoke feelings of peace and serenity, and typically a very deep relaxation. You may simply fall asleep and wake up feeling very refreshed and renewed. You may experience insights and release of specific personal issues and memories. You may have feelings of warmth, movement, expansion, cleansing, or a feeling of being touched. Some people feel sensations of physical healing taking place, as they feel the presence of the healing spirits working directly on their physical bodies. Your awareness may even extend beyond yourself to higher states of consciousness.

What makes it so special?

The bed combines the power of colour Therapy, Light therapy, and Crystal Therapy. This combination produces beneficial stimulation on many physical and energetic levels of being. The combination of healing energies is then enhanced by the "Healing Entities" of the Casa de Dom Inacio.  These are  the entities that are incorporated by the Medium Joao Teixeira de Faria, also known as "John of God". The illuminated crystals create a portal that the Entities can use to channel their healing energy to the individual receiving the "Crystal Bed Healing". Typically what happens is that the crystals and lights first open, align and prepare the person in the beginning of  the session so that the Entities can then later in the session come in and make healing adjustments to the person's energy field and body.

The Origins

The concept of the Crystal bed also called crystal bath therapy was channeled to John of God in Brazil who then had it developed for practical use and incorporated it as an important healing modality at his healing center affectionately known as "the Casa". For visitors to the Casa, the Crystal Healing Beds are available to all and are prescribed by the Entities (Healing Spirit Guides) of the Casa for rejuvenation, alignment and balancing of the our energy fields, which in turn aids in the process of spiritual and physical healing. When you walk before John of God during his "incorporation" by the entities for a healing, he either prescribes: visible or invisible surgery, sitting in the Current Room, taking Herbs, receiving a Crystal Healing Bath, or receiving a cleansing under the Sacred waterfall.

Who is John of God?

John of God is a full trance medium, who allows a specific group of highly evolved spirits or "entities" to take over his body and perform miraculous healings while he is completely unconscious of what is happening. These healings can and do occur on any or all levels - whether spiritual, mental, emotional or physical. Dom Inacio, or Saint Ignatius of Loyola, is the patron spirit or "entity" who directs this healing work from the spiritual dimensions. Through John of God, literally millions of people have come and received healings of one kind or another over the past 30 years. An important foundation of John of God's spiritual philosophy comes from the gospel as he stresses the importance of forgiveness and the message "Love one another as I love you."



There are no complicated procedures involved in Reiki. It is so simple that even children are able to use it.



Life today is more complicated than it used to be. We go through complex and stressful situations. What we are now looking for is something that will help us cope with life and live it as it should be lived; in peace, joy, harmony and abundance.

There is an increasing awareness today that health deals with much more than the physical body. The mind and spirit are equally involved. It is actually “a healthy body in a healthy mind” rather than the other way around. This awareness has led to a search for healing systems that lay emphasis on holistic health. Reiki is one such energy healing system that brings about very positive and extensive changes in our health, general well being and way of life, if practised regularly.
