Reiki (pronounced Ray-kee) is a Japanese word meaning ‘Universal Life Energy’, i.e. an energy which is all around us.
There is no belief system attached to Reiki so anyone can receive or learn to give a Reiki treatment, the only prerequisite is the desire to be healed.
Essentially, Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into your body to activate its natural healing processes.
Reiki treatments are simple and therapeutic. After taking a short case history, our practitioner will invite you to lie down and relax, although if you can’t lie down, sitting is perfectly fine – the main thing is that you are as comfortable as possible.
The practitioner will then place their hands over your whole body in a set sequence without actually touching you so that you’re treated holistically rather than for specific symptoms. Reiki will pass through all materials, even plaster casts, so there’s no need to remove any clothing.
A full treatment usually takes up to an hour and a half with each position held for several minutes.
Even one Reiki treatment should make a difference, but many people opt to attend regular treatment sessions because this offers cumulative benefits. There are no limits to how often you can have Reiki and we will work with you to create the right treatment plan for your needs.
Because Reiki uses gentle, healing energy, it is suitable for people of all ages, including young children, pregnant women, surgical patients, and older people.
Reiki does not take the place of conventional medicine. If you have any health concerns, you should always consult your GP.
