What is Reiki?

Rei-ki is Japanese word, (Rei) meaning "Universal Life" and (Ki) which means "Energy" It  was first discovered by Dr Mikao Usui in the early 1900's.

Reiki is a modality of energy therapy that assists in the healing of body, mind and spirit.   

How can Reiki help me?

Reiki healing can help with:

  • anxiety / depression
  • reducing stress levels
  • increasing your self awareness
  • assisting healing when recovering from physical illness
  • supporting emotional issues

Reiki is  calming and peaceful energy, it is ideal for anyone who is experiencing a challenging and difficult time in their life.

How does Reiki work?

We all have an energy field that surrounds us that is linked to our thoughts, feelings and physical body. The energy flows along  pathways (meridians) and centres (chakras). Holding on to negative thoughts or feelings can causes blockages, Reiki  helps clear the blockages and encourages the natural, healthy energy flow. After a treatment the vibratory level of your whole energy field will be raised.

During a treatment Reiki energy is channelled through the practitioners hands making contact with the client energy field. The practitioner works very much by intuition and  is guided by the clients energy as to where to place the hands.

Reiki energy  is so gentle that it will flow to where the body needs it, all you need to be, is open to receive it.

Reiki treats individuals holistically, restoring balance in the body, rather than focusing on specific issues. Reiki energy naturally flows to the areas of the physical / emotional / energetic body most in need of healing.

Reiki encourages you to take responsibility for your own health and well-being. For the healing to be permanent you need to take responsibility for changing the root cause of the problems. This may involve making changes to the people around you, the way you behave, the way you think or your lifestyle.


Most treatments I offer take 1 hour with some time for feedback at the end of treatment. Your 1st treatment will include a thorough consultation which will give me a clear picture of what combination of treatments I will carry out for you.
