Reiki

Activate and accelerate healing

What is Reiki?

A healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel healing energy into the client by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the client’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being.  Reiki treats your mind, body and soul.  In short, Reiki gives you what you need, the healing energy goes where it will do the greatest good.

What are the benefits of Reiki?

Reiki is a safe and soothing treatment that can help in numerous situations.  Here is a small selection of areas where Reiki can have a positive impact:
  • Pain management
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Enhance well-being
  • Improve sleep
  • Improve digestion

  • Reduce cancer treatment ill effects

What’s involved?

During your reiki session, healing energy will flow from my hands into you.  You will be lying comfortably on my treatment table.  You will remain fully clothed.  As your therapist, I will then place my hands on your body in a series of positions.  These positions will take me all around your body.  Each position is held for several minutes, with some positions being longer than others, it all depends on your need for reiki in that particular area.  The whole session will last approximately 1 hour.

I’m on medication, can I still have Reiki?

Yes!  Reiki works alongside all other regular medical or psychological treatments.  There are no known contraindications for Reiki.  Please check with your doctor if you are unsure.

How often will I need Reiki?

This depends on what you are coming for Reiki for.  If you are coming for pain management for instance, you may need one session per week for a few weeks, and then as the pain eases appointments can be reduced to an “as and when required” basis.  Likewise, if you are having a particularly trying time, you may benefit from a few daily sessions.  There is no limit to the number of Reiki sessions you can have and regular sessions are accumulative.

Is there an age limit on who can get Reiki?

No.  Reiki is available to all, from new born babies to those at end of life, everyone can benefit from the relaxation that Reiki provides.

Can animals benefit from Reiki?

Yes! As with humans, there are no contraindications for Reiki. Animals take the energy they need to heal and relax; in no way would it ever bring pain, discomfort or distress.

 

What does Reiki feel like?

Every person’s interpretation of Reiki is different.  One common feeling though, is a deep relaxation and a feel good sensation overall.  Reiki energy will encourage you to let go of your stress, your anxiety, your fears and other negative feelings that no longer serve you.  Some people actually drift into a trance like sleep.  One thing is for sure, after your Reiki session you will feel refreshed, calmer and have a more positive outlook.
