What is Reiki?

Reiki is an original method of healing, developed by Mikao Usui in Japan early in the 20th century, which is activated by intention. Reiki’s natural healing energy is believed to work on every level, not just the physical, and promotes the body’s regenerative self-healing ability. 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. It is known as ‘ki’ in Japan, ‘chi’ in China and ‘prana’ in India.

How can Reiki help me?

The energy of Reiki can be used to great effect in many ways. Whether you are suffering from stress or tension, and the many symptoms associated with this, or wishing to improve the quality of relationships at home or work, the beneficial effects of Reiki may occur on many levels. Reiki is thought to accelerate healing, balance the emotions and free us from restrictive mental attitudes. It helps to provide a closer connection with inner wisdom. Reiki is a non-invasive therapy that can be used without fear of any side-effects or overdose. It can be used with confidence alongside conventional medication or natural remedies because it acts in a complementary way.

Who can have Reiki?

Reiki is suitable for people of all ages from children through to the elderly although anyone with a serious medical complaint should inform their therapist before undertaking a course of treatment. GP consent is advisable for certain conditions.

What can I expect from a treatment?

The practitioner places their hands gently, in a series of positions, on or over the body. You automatically draw in only as much Reiki as is needed, using it in whatever way is most appropriate at the time. Your treatment will last between 35-40 minutes. Reiki can also be incorporated into other treatments.

You may like to listen to some soft music to help you to relax. Afterwards you will be asked to give your feedback about any changes or sensations you experienced. Reiki might be felt as a flow of energy, mild tingling, warmth, coolness, other sensations, or nothing at all. Reiki is deeply relaxing and has a calming effect. Treatment is enhanced if you can rest for a while afterwards and drink plenty of water to help the body detoxify. The beneficial effects may be felt for several days.
