Reiki (pronounced ‘Ray-Key’) is an ancient Japanese healing system that uses life force or energy to heal.
It addresses the whole person rather than specific symptoms and encourages healing on every level – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual imbalances within the body.
Reiki is a Japanese work meaning Universal Life Energy.
During your Reiki session you will be asked to lie down on a massage couch, if you are unable to do so treatment can be performed in a sitting position. It is advisable you wear loose fitting comfortable clothing. You will be asked to remove your shoes, jewellery and loosen your belt so as not to restrict your breathing. A full body treatment usually takes between 1-1 ½ hours and is deeply relaxing.
The Reiki practitioner will place their hands over the entire body, either lightly touching or just above your clothing in a sequence of positions. The practitioner will always demonstrate professionalism and non-intrusive touching techniques.
When the Reiki practitioner channels energy through their hands to the recipient it enhances the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Reiki will gently flow to where it is needed within the recipient’s body, soothing pain whilst restoring balance and energy flow throughout the whole body. Releasing blocked energies can help to remove toxins within the body. Reiki can help with many acute and chronic conditions bringing about total mind body and soul restoration. These conditions include migraine, asthma, chronic fatigue syndrome, eczema, insomnia, arthritis, menstrual problems, emotional imbalances, back pain, sciatica, menopausal difficulties and many more.
