Reiki is a form of hands-on healing which is deeply relaxing. Reiki releases energy blockages, detoxifies the system, provides new vitality and well being in the form of healing universal life energy.  It is also useful in treating serious illnesses as well as cuts, burns, internal diseases, emotional disorders, and stress-related illnesses.

The word Reiki is Japanese and means ‘Universal Energy’ – the energy that flows through all living things. It was rediscovered by Mikao Usui in Japan in the late 1800’s.

 What to expect during Reiki treatment

As you relax, fully clothed, on a couch or seated the Reiki practitioner holds her/his hands on or above you. There is no pressure on the body thus making it ideal for treating all ages and conditions. The energy flows wherever it is required and can normally be felt as a warm sensation or tingling in the body. Receiving Reiki is a very relaxing and soothing experience! In the western world many Reiki practitioners use the standard hand positions and commonly a full treatment is given covering all the important organs of the body and I usually also balance the whole chakra system too.

A Reiki treatment  typically lasts an hour.
