Reiki

A Reiki treatment is non-diagnostic, non-interventionist and non-manipulative making it entirely safe to use in all situations. Reiki is often offered as alternative therapy in hospitals working alongside traditional medicines to reduce anxiety, provide emotional and physical support whilst supporting the body’s natural healing process.

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is an ancient Japanese technique developed by Mikao Usui in 1922, used to reduce stress and create a feeling of relaxation whilst promoting the natural healing process within. The word ‘Rei’ represents Spiritual Consciousness/Wisdom in the body, mind and spirit whilst the word ‘Ki’ means Life Energy. Reiki itself is therefore a Spiritually Guided Life Energy. When your 'Ki' is low or if there is a restriction in the flow of 'Ki' within you, you may be more vulnerable to illness.

A Reiki session usually takes place with the client lying down, or sitting, in a comfortable peaceful environment.

No clothing is removed as Reiki energy passes easily through all materials, including plaster casts.

The practitioner places their hands gently on or over the body of the the client allowing the Reiki energy to flow from their hands. At no point are hands placed in any personal areas and a completely hands-off treatment is just as effective should the client prefer this. At the end of the session a state of relaxation and peace is often felt by the client.

Reiki has been known to reduce inflammation, speed up the healing of broken bones and other injuries, as well as bringing a sense of well being.
