is a powerful, energy based, natural healing system, which originated in Tibet, Ancient Egypt, India
thousands of years ago. The practice of
Reiki as we know it today was re discovered in the 1870’s by a Japanese monk, Mikao
Usui, and has evolved into a popular complementary therapy. The word Reiki means “universal life force
energy” and is pronounced Ray – Key
Reiki is a method of
balancing and unblocking the body’s energy centres. The natural flow of energy through a client’s
body relaxes and restores energy, enabling the recipients to stimulate their
own natural healing resources to deal with the condition in the best
manner. This healing may take place on
all levels, including the physical, mental and emotional levels.
What Happens? Treatment
generally begins with a brief confidential discussion of the client’s condition
and medical history. This is then
followed with one or more sessions of treatment. All treatments are gentle and involve no
manipulation of the body or discomfort for the recipient. The first session lasts about one hour
fifteen minutes and includes the consultation.
Follow on sessions last approximately an hour each.
Reiki has been found to be of
benefit to its recipients in very different ways, as each person and each
condition is individual. It has grown in
popularity, due to its success in the treatment of conditions such as the
Back and muscle pain
Releases blocked energy
Increases energy and vitality
Detoxifies the body
Physical, mental and
A sense of calm and well
For some clients the effects
of a treatment can be quite obvious and stunning, while for others the progress
is gradual and takes place on a subtle level.
Most clients experience a deep sense of relaxation; it is unusual for
Reiki not to be of help in some way.
Reiki is a holistic therapy and the Reiki energy works to assist healing
of the whole person.
There are occasions when a
cleansing process may be experienced by the recipient, signalling a release of
blocked energies before the healing work can begin. The initial consultation will also identify
any other elements that the therapist may need to consider during treatment.
