Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) is the Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy - an energy that is all around us.

What is Reiki?

Reiki evolved in Japan from the studies of Dr Mikao Usui (1865-1926) who developed this system from ancient teachings after many years of meditation, study and research.

He spent most his life practising and teaching Reiki and because there is no belief system attached to Reiki anyone can receive it. The only requirement is the desire to be healed.

Receiving Reiki

Receiving Reiki is a very simple process.

The recipient simply lies on a couch and relaxes. If you are unable to lie down Reiki can be given in a sitting position, the main thing is that you as comfortable as possible. There is no need to remove any clothing as Reiki energy will pass through anything - even plaster casts.

The practitioner gently places their hands non-intrusively in a sequence of positions which cover the whole body.

The well-being of the whole person is considered rather than specific symptoms. A full session usually takes 1 to 1½ hours with each position held for several minutes.

Which conditions can Reiki help?

Reiki encourages and supports positive personal change such as: improving your diet, getting more rest, exercise or leisure time, sleeping better and may assist in reducing the need for alcohol and tobacco.

In some cases such as terminal illness, Reiki may instil a sense of peace and acceptance during the time remaining.

Who can receive Reiki?

Reiki can assist you respond more calmly to life events and build on a more resourceful state of being - it is an extremely gentle therapy and can be used safely by all ages including the newborn, pregnant mothers, people recovering from surgery, the frail or the elderly - regardless of their state of health.

Reiki can assist in the enhancement of everyday life, and regular sessions may help alleviate signs of illness and fatigue.
