What is Reiki?

Reiki means universal (rei) life force (ki), the life force that animates all sentient beings. When ki is strong and free, the body and mind are able to remain in good health. But if ki is blocked or is weak then this may result in physically illness, emotional imbalance or spiritual emptiness.

Reiki is an ancient form of healing originating from Japan. This system of natural healing was developed by Dr Mikao Usui in 1922. Reiki works by recharging the body’s energy levels by opening up the energy channels and allowing the body and mind to be brought back to balance.

Reiki is a non-invasive treatment in which the client remains fully clothed while reclining on a table or seated in a chair. The therapist places her hands on or just above the clients’ body, whichever the client prefers and healing energy is transferred through the palms. For the receiver to be able to embrace Reiki the healing channel of the practitioner opens to allow the connection between receiver and the universal life force energy. The energy then travels around the body assisting in revitalising and re-balancing energy levels in the body, mind, and spirit.

Once the treatment is complete, the Therapist will share any information that may have emerged during the session and invite you to discuss your experience if you would like to.

Potential benefits of Reiki:

Reiki can be used to maintain physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health; it is both relaxing and gentle. Reiki makes no claim to cure any specific condition, however, clients open to the process of Reiki have reported that regular sessions help to improve sleep, reduce stress, relieve tension, ease effects of emotional trauma, physical illness, and promote inner calmness. Reiki assists in strengthening of ones innate self-healing potential and can give one a more positive outlook on life.
