Ian Robinson, Holistic Therapist

 Introduce yourself! Please tell us about you and your life, so we can get to know you better.

So my names Ian Robinson and I live in the North East of England, I live with my partner of 9 years, and have two dogs called Jeffy and Keevah. They are what we call a heinz 57 or a mongrel, but they are so loving and unique, and can be so funny and cheeky too! I love being out in nature walking them too, or just being in nature. It is so healing on so many levels.

I love art, creating art, either drawing, painting, crafting, writing, anything that allows my soul to express itself. I also love music and listening to music, and I also play guitar and sing in a band too! I love blues music and blues rock, which I have really enjoyed since around 11 years old when I started to learn the guitar. I'm still learning 33 years later! Haha. 

I think we should always be humble, we never know everything do we?

I am also a Reiki practitioner and teacher, as well as a meditation teacher, hypnosis practitioner too! I also offer indian head massage currently, and EFT (emotional freedom technique) or tapping. I also love other forms of healing using crystals, singing bowls, essential oils, plus I love using tarot cards and developing my intuition.

Could you please provide an overview of Reiki Zen and its mission? What inspired you to start this business?

I started my business due to my own healing journey of mental health. I suffered for years without even realising I had these things. So it was from my own healing and journey I was in a place where I could be of assistance to help others find themselves. Reiki and meditation has been my foundations, and continues to do so. They are both amazing healing modalities and also ways of being. So here I am today flying the flag for Reiki and its many benefits! Some of which you can find on my website.

How do you ensure the quality and authenticity of your Reiki treatments and products? 

Professionalism is the key for me. Whether it is in person or distance healing, it makes no matter. With in person treatments being respectful, open, honest and caring is my philosophy. This is exactly the same for distance treatments too. However with distance, I like to send a video of the session, or a recording. I also like to pull some oracle cards for guidance too. Distance treatments are conducted via zoom, and in energy work, there is no time and space. That's just something we understand in our physical reality. Beyond that, anything is possible in the realms of energy work.

Can you share some success stories or testimonials from clients who have experienced positive results through Reiki Zen?

I have many testimonials on my website, however some of the best experiences have been through distance treatments. There is such a profound connection between myself and the client, where I am relaying information to them about their lives and what they are going through. Yet they are in a different country. Plus they know exactly when the healing is beginning and when it ends. It really is amazing way of receiving healing in the comfort of your own home. One of my first ever distance clients was going through a 'dark night of the soul' and really needed some help. So she reached out to me. So I sat down and began, I visualised and asked for halos of healing light to surround her, protect her and help to heal her. After the session the lady rang me and said you wouldn't believe what I saw! Rings of light surrounding me, I felt surrounded by love and so protected! I explained what I had asked for, and she saw just that! Amazing!

In what ways does Reiki Zen contribute to promoting holistic well-being and personal growth?

I try to allow people to see their whole life as energy, because that's what we are. When we are able to calm the mind through Reiki, meditation or hypnosis, then we are more accessible to allow healing to take place. I like to combine therapies to create the best packages available to help with holistic healing. For instance Reiki alone may not be the answer. We might have to conduct some hypnosis first to find out what is going on or blocking the energy. From there I can cater the healing and treatments. However it's also down to the client to take their own responsibility for their healing and make the time in their week to put what we practise into place. It's from that point then that we really being to see the difference, because the clients are now focussed and dedicated to their highest good and healing. Once they find this ability within themselves, it really helps to empower them to take their own path and create their reality. This is true holistic healing.

If you could change one thing about your industry, what would it be and why?

More knowledge, more scientific study, more mainstream exposure to the reality that these healing modalities exist and that they work! I still hear people now asking me, 'what is reiki' 'How does it work' 'is it dangerous?' 'what is meditation?' and lots of other questions. The more people like myself can share these amazing healing modalities, and open the concepts into everyone's everyday awareness, then that is true growth. We see and hear so much about Macdonalds, KFC, and Cadburys, but we don't hear much about alternative therapies to help us to heal ourselves.

There is so much healing needed in the world, not just from humanity, but for nature, the earth, and we can only find this healing within. When we connect to our source and find the power of love, then the world and all life will see transformational change. 

Tell us about a pivotal moment in your life that brought you to where you are today.

Meditation! That was my first step. I started off depressed, anxious, suffering with panic attacks and physical issues. One day some one asked me if I had ever meditated. From that point on my whole reality shifted. The mind quietened, my life opened up, and with that clarity I changed so much in my life, which brought me to crystals, reiki and my spiritual life. So for me, meditation is always my first go to. If you haven't tried it, you really need to! I am also a meditation coach and teacher now, so if you struggle, get in touch. I have found many great ways to create focus and help heal the connection between the body mind and spirit.
