What is Reiki?
What is Reiki?
Pronounced ’Ray Key’, meaning Universal Life Energy, Reiki is a natural energy healing system, founded by Mikao Usui in Japan over a 100 years ago, to assist the body’s own natural ability to heal itself. It is a safe, non-invasive system that is beneficial to everyone.
How does it work?
The universal life energy is channelled through the Practitioner by placing their hands, or hovering, over key energy centres of the body. It works on all levels of the mind, body, emotion and spirit allowing total harmony and balance to be restored. There are no side-effects to a reiki treatment.
What can Reiki treat?
Everything. Stress, ailments and all diseases. It can also be used together with other complementary therapies and medical treatments.Reiki reduces stress within the body in order for the body’s natural healing process to begin thus restoring a feeling of total wellbeing.
How long does a treatment last and how much does it cost?
Approx. 1 hour although the first treatment will include a brief consultation for the Practitioner to assess your needs and requirements so please allow 1 1/2 hours for this appointment. The first appointment is £50 but all subsequent treatments will be £40.
How many treatments will I need?
Entirely up to you. Everyone heals at different timescales, especially chronic illnesses which may take a longer time period to heal. Generally speaking some prefer to have a few treatments quite quickly and then come back for monthly top-ups in order to maintain a healthy body & mind.
What happens during a treatment?
Reiki is an extremely relaxing and rejuvenating experience and is personal to each individual. Clients are requested to lie on a couch, fully clothed, and invited to close their eyes and relax listening to soothing background music. During this time the Reiki energy will flow through to your energy centres. Some feel a calming heat, some feel a soothing coolness but be assured it will be perfect for you.
What about Aftercare?
It is recommended that you drink plenty of water post treatment and try to relax for the rest of the day and avoid alcohol. Most feel a sense of wellbeing after their treatment, however, should you have any concerns then please do not hesitate to contact us.
Are Reiki Practitioners Regulated?
