The practice of Reiki is an original method of healing, developed by Mikao Usui in Japan early in the 20th century, which is activated by intention.
It works on every level, not just the physical. Reiki is a healing system that works with the subtle energy system, which can be used to treat yourself and others using ‘laying on of hands’.
The Japanese word Reiki pronounced ‘ray-key’ means ‘Universal Energy’. Eastern medicine has always recognised and worked with this energy, which flows through all living things and is vital to well-being. Known as ‘ki’ in Japan, ‘chi’ in China and ‘prana’ in India.
Acupuncture, T’ai chi and Yoga are also based on the free-flow of this energy in a person.
Reiki is a non-invasive therapy which treats the whole person including physical, emotion, etheric and mental body, thus creating many beneficial effects such as a feeling of wellbeing and relaxation.
Reiki is not based on belief or faith and is not a religion or cult.
What are the Benefits?
Illness can be a time of great stress. Reiki can help by encouraging relaxation and bringing balance to both mind and emotions.

Reiki is used in Hospices, Hospitals, Corporates and Private Practice.
What happens in a Session?
A Reiki treatment is non-diagnostic, non-interventionist, non-manipulative and no pressure is applied.
A session is usually carried out with the recipient lying down or sitting, in a comfortable and peaceful environment. There is no need to remove any clothing as Reiki energy passes easily through all materials, including plaster casts.
The practitioner places their hands gently on or over the body. The recipient automatically draws in only as much Reiki as is needed, using it in whatever way is most appropriate at the time.
Reiki may be experienced as a flow of energy, mild tingling, warmth, coolness, other sensations, or nothing at all. Reiki is deeply relaxing and has a profoundly calming effect. It is a good idea to rest for a while afterwards and drink plenty of water over the next few days. Be responsive to the needs of your body, eg resting if tired, and allow the energy to continue its work after the session ends. The beneficial effects may be felt for several days.
