Reiki - Japanese Healing - 'Rei' = Universal  'ki' = life energy

Reiki is an original method of healing, developed by Mikao Usui in Japan in the early 20th Century.  It is activated by intention.  Reiki's natural healing energy works on every level, not just the physical and promotes the body's regenerative self-healing ability.

Eastern medicine has always recognised and used this gentle energy; it flows through all living things and is vital to well-being.

Known as:- Ki in Japan; Chi in China and Prana in India

Mikao Usui

Acupuncture, T'ai Chi and Yoga are all based on the same energy.  The purpose of this non-invasive therapy is to treat a person holistically.  It can be used in many ways, from stress or tension reduction to improving relationships.  The beneficial effects occur on many levels and can also accelerate the healing of physical problems, balance the emotions and free restricted mental attitudes.  It may also provide a closer connection with one's inner wisdom.

Reiki can be used by all ages regardless of their state of health.  It can enhance everyday life and regular sessions help ward off illness and fatigue.


What happens during a session?

I encourage my clients to lie in a comfortable and peaceful environment.  There is no need to remove clothing. 

Face to face, I place my hands gently in a series of positions just above the body either following the Usui principles or intuiting Angelic guidance. 

From a distance, i.e., you are in your safe place and I am working from my home.  We will arrange a mutually convenient time and I will intuit the placing of my hands just as if you were with me.  You will still feel the benefits of the energy.  

Your body will only draw in as much Reiki as is needed.  It may felt as a flow of energy, mild tingling, warmth, coolness, other sensations or nothing at all.

Treatment is enhanced if you rest afterwards, drink plenty of water to help detox, be responsive to your body's needs.  The effects may be felt for quite a few days after session.
