The Reiki Centre was founded by Elaine G Hamilton in 2007 in Singapore. The Singapore Reiki Centre is now supported by several Reiki teachers running workshops and providing in person healing. Elaine has recently relocated to Cambridge, UK where she is offering Reiki classes and personal healing sessions as well as expanding the Online Reiki offerings.

Elaine discovered Reiki 30 years ago and was delighted to have found such a powerful self-healing technique.  She became a Reiki Master in 1995 and juggled teaching Reiki with a busy corporate career.  She stepped away from her corporate career to set up The Reiki Centre and has since dedicated her work to teaching Reiki and advocating for high quality Reiki education free from dogma.

Elaine has trained thousands of Reiki students and over 80 Reiki Masters via her vigorous Teacher training program.

She is author of “Reiki, Pure and Simple” a down to earth and accessible introduction to Reiki, and shares many resources and articles on her blog and YouTube channel.  

Her latest book "Reiki - A Path to Freedom" outlines the spiritual aspect of Reiki that is often side-stepped or forgotten.  Reiki is essentially and originally a spiritual practice based on self-knowledge, as Usui (the founder of Reiki) put it, Reiki is "the secret method for gaining happiness".

Elaine provides comprehensive online Reiki classes, hosts a thriving online community for energy explorers and is currently expanding the Reiki Centre philosophy, co-creating with country specific Reiki teachers to provide in-person classes - beginning in Singapore.   


Elaine takes an active interest in developing Reiki.  She is a founding member of The Usui Reiki Association, Singapore (TURA), and has authored two global Reiki consumer research projects, the latest one published in 2020.
