Reiki is a natural healing practice developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Dr Usui. It is a technique used to reduce stress and promote relaxation. Reiki (ray-key) means “universal life energy”, this energy is within us all and it works subtly on a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual level.
Reiki healing is a gentle but powerful healing energy channelled through the practitioner and is received by you. A treatment feels like a glowing radiance which flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, mind and spirit, creating many beneficial feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Reiki can be combined with other treatments or simply done alone.
During a Reiki treatment, clients remain fully clothed and may either receive healing seated or lying down, which ever feels most comfortable. Healing is performed by using non-intrusive hand placements on or near the body. The whole person is treated rather than specific areas.
The greatest benefit of Reiki is that it encourages your body’s natural healing ability, is relaxing and improves health and wellbeing. Reiki healing is beneficial for almost any situation and can also be a very effective treatment for children and animals too.
