What is Reiki?

The name "Reiki" derives from a 2 part Japan character which translates roughly as “Universal Life Force”. This is the unseen energy, which fills the universe and animates all living things. It is the same energy, which flows through the energy conduits (Meridians) of the body.

Without it nothing could grow or heal. Applying Reiki to the body is a gentle but powerful way to support and enhance the life force energy many living thing and is a useful aid to healing both physical and emotional problems. It is suitable for any age group and all states of health. Reiki cannot be used to do harm. It is non-denominational, non-religious and available to all age groups and states of health.

Benefits of Reiki Healing

When the flow of the "Life Force Energy" is disrupted, weakened or blocked, emotional or health problems tend to occur. Imbalances can be caused from many situations occurring in our lives, such as: emotional or physical trauma, injury, negative thoughts and feelings, including fear, worry, doubt, anger, anxiety, negative self-talk, toxicity, nutritional depletion, destructive lifestyle and relationships, neglect of self and lack of love for oneself or others, from emotions that are not expressed in a healthy way...

Reiki is excellent for healing any physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues of any kind and it gives wonderful results.

How is Reiki given?

A full treatment is given with the recipient lying fully clothed except for hoes on a couch or sitting in a chair. It is usually a hands-on treatment with the therapist placing their hands on a sequence of positions on the body to transmit the Reiki energy.

It is not intrusive or in any way embarrassing and most people enjoy the contact. When receiving Reiki you will feel pleasant warmth or tingling in the area being treated. Most people easily relax deeply feeling a release of tension and anxiety which allows healing to begin. In this state of deep relaxation the healing systems of the body are free to make whatever adjustments are necessary to improve health. Some people fall asleep during treatment and awake fully refreshed and revitalised.


I really enjoyed the Reiki experience, during the treatment I felt really relaxed and felt as though I gone into a deep sleep.

I was surprised how calm I felt afterwards and for a few moments it took me away from all my stresses.
