The Centre of Excellence
The Chakra Room founder Sam Whittaker has been a teacher of the traditional
Usui System of Reiki for over 15 years having taught hundreds of students this
powerful healing system from level one through to master teacher.
It is now possible to train in many things for a small fee in a short space of time
but we passionately believe that a healing system such as reiki has a tradition and
lineage that needs the utmost respect and continual personal and professional
For students and practitioners there is often no back up to support the student in this area. The founding members of The Reiki Centre of Excellence, have embarked on a mission to deliver high quality reiki treatments and training in one place.
Be that one to one or groups and classes, supporting your own personal journey and that of a therapist should you decide to go into practice and into your own teaching path.
Our aim is to uphold traditional teachings whilst offering you the space to evolve
and expand your awareness and practice to your highest potential. Excellence in
all areas, together with deeply rooted skills and practices are at the top of our list.
We offer this in the safe and sacred space of The Chakra Room within a
supportive and expansive community.

Sherry first discovered Reiki in 2018, at the time was under a great deal of stress, burnt out and working in corporate senior management.
Having gone for a Reiki treatment and she was blown away and it was a life changing point for her.
She now has her own Reiki Practice and also offers treatments. Her message is that "if you’re new to Reiki... I would say that it’s definitely something you need to experience to fully appreciate just how magical and beneficial it can be".
The joy she gets in seeing the difference from when someone comes through the door to when they
leave absolutely confirms she's on the right path in bringing Reiki to all that can benefit from it.
She's so grateful to Sam and the community at The Chakra Room and is honoured to be a founding member of The Reiki Centre of
Excellence for Reiki.
