Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy, an energy which is all around us.

Natural Healing
Reiki is the name given to a system of natural healing which evolved in Japan from the experience and dedication of Dr Mikao Usui (d. 1926). Fired by a burning question, Dr Usui was inspired to develop this healing system from ancient teachings after many years of study, research and meditation. He spent the rest of his life practising and teaching Reiki. Today Reiki continues to be taught by Reiki Masters who have trained in the tradition passed down from Master to student. 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.

A Reiki Treatment
Reiki seeks to restore balance to your body’s vital energy. In a treatment lasting 55minutes, hands are gently placed in a sequence of positions non-intrusively on, or above where appropriate, your clothed body.

A Reiki treatment is normally carried out with you laying on a couch, or can be carried out in a seated position if more suitable for you. The main thing is for you to remain as comfortable as possible throughout the treatment.

Which conditions can Reiki help?
It is possible to heal at any level of being: physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. Acute injuries can be helped to heal very quickly but more chronic illness takes longer. In some cases such as terminal illness, there is not enough time for the progress of the disease to be reversed. However, in such cases there is usually great benefit and enhancement of the quality of life giving a sense of peace and acceptance during the time remaining. Reiki healing can be given anywhere at any time as no special equipment is needed. The practitioner is a channel which the energy is drawn through by the need or imbalance in the recipient.

There are many beneficial effects, including deep relaxation, blockages in the body’s natural energy channels can be destroyed often providing new vitality and feelings of peace, security and well-being.

Reiki can restore balance in your life.
