What is Reiki?
The word ‘Reiki’ is derived from the Japanese words ‘Rei’ and ‘Ki’ meaning universal life energy. Developed in the 1920’s by Dr Usui, a devout Japanese Budhist monk, and based on ancient Japanese Buddhist teachings, Reiki is a unique, hands-on healing technique which heals the body and mind, reduces feelings of stress and promotes relaxation. In today’s world Reiki is taught by Reiki Masters who have been attuned to this ancient tradition and now pass on this process from Master to student.
Reiki is a very safe, simple, natural and powerful healing technique which can be applied to any physical ailment with positive results. Reiki works not only on the physical body but also on the mind, spirit and emotions. Anybody can benefit from a Reiki session and results can be seen very quickly. Reiki can work in conjunction with other medical practices and can promote faster recovery.

How does Reiki work?
Reiki works on a physical and emotional level. Everything we see, touch, feel has ‘life force energy’ running through it. Negative emotions such as stress, fear, jealously, anxiety or depression all have a detrimental affect on our energy system causing blockages which manifest in our bodies through physical illnesses and pain. Reiki works by re-attuning the body’s energy to that of a healthy and harmonious vibration, ensuring life force energy flows smoothly and freely once again.
What to expect in a Reiki session
During a treatment all you have to do is lie (fully clothed of course) on a couch or sit in a chair and relax. In order to understand the focus of the treatment the practitioner will talk to you about how you are and the reasons behind the appointment. During the session the practitioner will place their hands on specific, non-intrusive parts of the body and, through their hands, flow positive energy into and through your energy system, breaking up the negative energy and restoring the positive life force energy. Reiki can do no harm and the energy always flows freely to where it is needed most. A typical session will take between 45-60 minutes.
