What is Reiki 



Reiki is a Japanese technique which promotes healing and aides relaxation by activating the body's natural healing system and promoting the flow of energy throughout the meridian system. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and every living thing, this energy is also known as Chi (also known as Qi, or Ki), in ancient Chinese medicine. We are more likely to get sick or feel stress if our "life force energy" is low, and if it is high, we are more likely to be happy and healthy.

A treatment feels like a warm radiant energy that flows through and around you. Reiki works on the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit, creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.


What happens during a treatment?

Most treatments take place while lying down, fully clothed on a therapy bed or couch. The practitioner will place their hands on or near parts of your body, usually around the energy centres of the body, corresponding to the 7 chakra points. The feel of the treatment is very relaxing and clients often report sensations of floating, warmth and tingling throughout the body, and a feeling of deep relaxation during and after the treatment.
