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.
The Japanese word Reiki 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 whose purpose is to treat holistically and to restore
What are the benefits?
Illness can be a time of great stress. Reiki can help us cope by encouraging relaxation
and bringing balance to both mind and emotions.
Benefits reported by Clients include deep relaxation and promoting a calm, peaceful
sense of well being on all levels.
Reiki’s gentle energy is easily adapted to most medical conditions and may be used
safely by people of all ages, including newborn babies and infants, pregnant mothers,
surgical patients and the frail and elderly.
What happens during 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 fully clothed in a
comfortable and peaceful environment. 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 to drink plenty of
water over the next day or so as the beneficial effects may be felt for several days.
How often do I need to have a treatment?
Even one single Reiki session can make a difference; however a course of regular
treatments may be more effective. These may be weekly, fortnightly or less often
depending on the needs of the individual. A treatment plan will be discussed with
you, and reviewed as necessary. This will always be subject to your own preferences,
and can be changed at any time according to progress.
Sessions are available for 30 minutes or 60 minutes.
