The lifestyles we lead can be hectic. We often have little or no time for ourselves and we neglect our body and its systems. This leads to imbalance and stress. How we deal with our stress determines whether it has a good or bad effect on our well-being. Long-term stress can wreak havoc on our health as harmful stress related hormones linger in our bodies. This can manifest in stress related symptoms, disease and unhappiness. Whilst traditional medicine has made incredible contributions to increased quality of life by treating symptoms of illness, people want more. Alongside the value of Western medicine, a more informed public now want greater control of their own health and are seeking alternative healing methods to both prevent and cure illness completely. This new awareness and desire has led to a surge in the use of Reiki healing for distress on all levels.
Reiki is an ancient healing art. Many believe it to be the strongest form of energy healing that has ever existed. It is a complete healing system, working with your energy to bring balance, inner harmony and heal your physical body as well as your mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
Reiki is a Japanese word; REI means “Universal” and KI means “Life Force Energy”. (It is pronounced “Ray-Key”). It is the vital life force energy that flows through all living things. When the flow of this Life Force energy through our physical bodies is blocked or disrupted, physical / emotional health problems tend to occur.
Reiki is not a religion and will work regardless of your belief system.
There is increasing evidence from a growing number of reputable scientific studies that Reiki is therapeutic. For example, research has demonstrated the beneficial effects of Reiki healing include: significant relaxation response, a significant reduction in stress, anxiety, heart rate and blood pressure, relief from depression, an increase in immunological functioning, and a reduction in pain levels and a reduced amount of pain medication required (Diaz-Rodriguez et al., 2011; Dressing and Sing (1998); Friedman et al., (2010), Makay, Hansen, McFarlane, (2004); Vitale, A.T., O’Conner, P.C. (1998); Wardell and Engebretson (2001)).

Reiki is a safe, effective, non-invasive, healing therapy that can be used in both the prevention and cure of physical illness, disease, stress and emotional difficulties.
In a Reiki treatment, the practitioner places their hands lightly in a series of positions on or over the recipient’s body and life force energy is channeled through the Reiki practitioner to work on the recipient’s energy field and physical body.
The energy is drawn to the source of any imbalances or areas that perhaps are undergoing some form of stress or where there is a health issue. It works wherever it is most needed within the body, mind and spirit, releasing blocked energies, cleansing the body of toxins and working to create a state of balance.
The outcome of each treatment is determined, not by the practitioner, but by the energy system of the person receiving the treatment. The experience of a treatment may vary for each individual as you might experience a sense of deep, blissful relaxation, floating, tingling, warmth, heaviness, lightness, movement or a release. You might see vivid colours, clear images – perhaps of places and people.
You might find that your thoughts are clearer or they are meaningful.
Whatever you feel and see during a session is a unique experience to you!
The treatment can be carried out with you lying on the massage couch or sitting in a chair. You remain fully clothed.
A Reiki session lasts for 60 minutes.
