Reiki (pronounced ‘ray-key’) is a Japanese healing therapy that balances the body’s natural energy.
The underlying philosophy of reiki is that if a person’s ‘life force energy’ is low, they are more likely to be unwell or stressed. If it is high, however, they are more capable of being happy and feeling well. Reiki will not cure illnesses or disease, but it may help your body to heal itself. Reiki is not a religion – there is nothing you have to believe in to use or receive reiki.
This form of therapy aims to increase energy levels and promote relaxation and wellbeing, particularly with stress-related conditions.
Many people fall asleep and report a state of clarity and deep relaxation after treatment. Reiki can also work on a deeper level and some people may experience emotional release from past trauma. Symptoms of toxin release may follow sessions, but Reiki is non-intrusive and can work alongside other therapies and medication.
During a Reiki session you will lie down and close your eyes, whilst I place my hands on or just above your body in a sequence of positions. Often this direct contact with the body will allow you to fall into a deep state of relaxation. During a treatment, you may feel warmth or cold, a tingling sensation, slight twitching or a rumbling tummy, or you may feel absolutely nothing.
