What is Reiki

Reiki is a complementary therapy using natural healing energy which has long been recognised in Eastern medicine. Otherwise referred to as chi in China, prana in India and ki in Japan, the word reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) meaning Universal Life and (Ki) which means Energy.

The modern practice of Reiki was developed by Mikao Usui in Japan in the early 20th Century. The methods, which have been passed down directly from him, enable this energy to flow with intent to wherever it is most needed. It encourages relaxation and brings balance to body, mind and emotions. It is a gentle, yet powerful, therapy which can be used alongside conventional medicine.

It is non-invasive therapy, the body isn’t manipulated in any way and no pressure is applied. During a treatment, my hands will be placed gently on or above your body enabling the energy to flow unrestricted while you lie on a couch or sit in a chair – whichever is the most comfortable for you.
