What are the benefits?

Reiki treatments can stimulate your physical, mental and emotional healing, energetic rebalancing and spiritual growth, by using life force energy to help release physical, emotional and mental pain or blockages. It promotes relaxation and works on your mental and emotional levels re-establishing your well-being and equilibrium. Reiki is a transformational tool it can assist you in personal awakening, helping to clear old perceptions and develop new insights.

Reiki aids stress, tension and pain relief and, being gentle and safe, it is perfect if you suffer with great physical pain or disability and are unable to endure any vigorous bodywork. It also a works if you suffer from depression, insomnia, or anxiety as it stimulates feelings of inner calm and strength. Some describe the experience as a feeling of being wrapped up in a protective ball of cotton wool.


What is Reiki?

Reiki is a traditional Japanese hands-on form of healing that was used widely thousands of years ago until lost. A hundred years ago it was rediscovered by Dr Usui who, after spending years travelling and studying, found the key to this ancient system.

Reiki is a Japanese word for Universal Life Force Energy. It originates from the two syllables, 'rei' meaning universal and 'ki' meaning energy (the Chinese word being 'chi'). Although seen as Japanese it is practiced all over the world and is enjoying huge popularity in Europe and the United States.

The therapy is based on the idea that a disruption in your body’s energy field causes illness. In this therapy, it is believed that channelling your energy can cause disease-making negative energy to be replaced with health promoting positive energy. It brings healing energy to your organs and glands in order to bring your body back into balance and help prevent disease.

The massage practitioner places their hands on or just above your body to realign your 'chakras' and dissolve toxic substances from your physical and emotional being. People often feel warmth or tingling sensations during Reiki.

Reiki is used to relieve many symptoms of chronic illness such as anxiety, insomnia, back pain and arthritis, and it often produces long-term beneficial changes. Most of our clients report that Reiki treatments feel wonderful and often promote a sense of relaxation and well being.

Reiki is not a religion or belief system. It works for everyone irrespective of religious / spiritual beliefs, age, gender, origins or academic abilities. Reiki will work whether or not you believe in it - it works equally well on plants & animals!

It is neither diagnostic, symptom based or limited to a desired outcome. Although the use of Reiki often relieves particular symptoms the lack of pathologic focus gives it the opportunity to work directly with the whole person and their life story. This promotes greater health and actualisation in accord with your own natural growth process.
