“On Reiki Harmony, Terry Oldfield and his ensemble of musicians combine calming nature sounds, subtle vocals and ambient synths with traditional Indian instrumentation. This soothing music gently washes over the listener, encouraging the deep relaxation and tranquility necessary for a truly healing experience. Terry’s goal in creating this CD is to offer a soundtrack perfectly suited to the practice of Reiki, massage, and other healing arts. Practitioners, patients and anyone who loves gorgeous music will want to add Reiki Harmonyto their collections.”

“I carried this one with me for a week, using it for yoga, relaxing, and I even asked for my massage therapist to play it during my session.It is peace in a box!”
Peter Manzi, New Age Retailer – April 2, 2013:
“Like a soothing fountain, the new music of Terry Oldfield and his small ensemble will bathe the listener in gentle ambient synths, trickling water and nature sounds (recorded by Oldfield in Queensland, Austrailia), airy and essentially lyricless vocals, bells and other light percussion, and Indian instruments in Reiki Harmony’s evenhour of five pieces of music.
Above all his musical gentleness is Oldfield’spowerful bansuri flute performance, not to be missed – a combination of both his ability as a player and an incredible audio engineering effort that sounds as if the microphone were placed deep inside the flute (great for headphone listening). The rich and deep resonance of his lingering tones shoot directly to the very foundation of one’s inner core, encouraging (if not forcing) a state of deep relaxation.
In addition to reiki sessions, Reiki Harmony is essential for the massage, spa, or the healing arts professional.”

DailyOM – April 3, 2013:
“Part of a British musical family that includes his brother Mike (Tubular Bells), Terry Oldfield first discovered the flute (teaching himself) while spending time as a youth on the island of Hydra in Greece. Since then, he has slowly immersed himself in the global music lifestyle as a key ingredient in its rise to popular appeal. For his 2006 release, Reiki Harmony, Oldfield utilizes the tranquil zen power of the wooden flute to create a sacred space through which the art of reiki healing can occur. Relaxed, sure, and deeply mystical, Oldfield’s music works on all levels of being, from relaxing the outer world to activating the inner.
Whether creating a sense of hallowed temple halls through long, drawn out notes and the occasional jangle of temple bells—as on “Awakening Heart”—or bringing in a plaintively plucked santour for the solemn, hushed “Om Shanti,” Oldfield never falters in his minimalist brilliance. His palette of carefully composed sonic structures is never repetitive or treacly. Later in “Om Shanti,” a faraway chorus seems to coalesce along the horizon line of Oldfield’s flute, almost like a desert mirage at first, eventually becoming a gorgeous female voice that rises from his root key like Venus from the water. It’s the sort of brilliance that can reduce one to shivering tears if they are listening deeply. If the track is being played as background music, it can simply sound pleasant and gentle.
The closer, “Spirit Calling,” utilizes the rising and falling structure of the previous track to launch a sense of placid awakening, a call to lift one’s energy from the place of deep stillness where it has been invited to rest over the course of the previous tracks. With Oldfield’s flute blowing deep, fluttery notes that rise intrepidly from their beds of heavy synth arpeggios, a timeless sense of enraptured change overtakes one’s whole being. Aligning his music with the fundamentals of reiki—physical change via spiritual intent—Oldfield does more than deliver a suitably tranquil disc for the holistic practioner’s work space: He shapes the very structure of his listener’s perceptions, revealing the infinity of transformative potential and love within.”
