What is Reiki?
Reiki is a very gentle and safe healing technique which channels universal life force energy from one person to another. It is done with the intention of healing for the highest good and this energy can treat a number of physical, mental and emotional ailments.
Reiki balances, heals and harmonizes all aspects of a person. When we are unwell, we not only feel unwell in the physical sense but we can also feel an imbalance in our “energy,” or “out of sorts." This is reflected in our mood and our emotional state, both of which aren’t tangible, but we know we feel out of sync. Reiki is an amazing therapy for restoring the flow of energy in the body and mind. It helps to rebalance you and make you feel more grounded and whole again.
Originating from Japan, this technique has been taught in the West since the late 1930’s. It has grown in popularity and is a much sought after complimentary therapy.

What happens in a Reiki treatment?
A treatment lasts about 40 minutes and it involves me using gentle hand movements to guide the flow of healing reiki energy through the body to the areas which require it. You will be fully clothed and laying down comfortably on a treatment bed.
Reiki will flow automatically to the areas of need in your body. Most people describe a Reiki treatment as relaxing and calming. It’s not uncommon for people to fall asleep and that is perfectly ok! Some people describe an intense feeling of warmth, others see colours and some people describe a feeling of floating and drifting.
It is quite common for a deep emotional release to happen as with myself on a few treatments. This is a positive step. When one is so relaxed and the energy blocks of the body and mind are cleared and balanced, there can be a release physically. Welling up and tears, a change in the way someone breathes, a letting go. The block is being pushed to the surface and dissipated.
Reiki is truly a beautiful therapy. Please do give me a call if you wish to discuss how Reiki can benefit you.
