Reiki, pronounced ‘ray-key’, is a natural form of healing therapy. It is applied through non-invasive gentle touch. This form of therapy aims to increase energy levels and promote relaxation and wellbeing. Reiki can contribute to a person’s wellbeing by making them feel:
Whilst you relax on the massage table I place my hands on or just above your body in a sequence of positions. Unlike massage, a reiki treatment does not involve any form of physical manipulation and is done over clothing. I also incorporate crystals to further enhance the flow of healing energy.
Current practice incorporates more recent scientific knowledge and research, and it is increasingly respected by the medical profession. Some hospitals use it in palliative care and to help post-operative recovery.

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) means ‘universal life force’. It is the vital energy which naturally flows through and nurtures all living things, also known in different traditions as Chi (Chinese), Prana (Indian) and Mana (Hawaian).
Reiki healing is a natural healing system believed to have originated in ancient Tibet and India. It was rediscovered and developed in the 19th century by Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese monk. Reiki practitioners have received attunements to a special energy vibration. This enables them to channel the healing energy direct from the Source to other people.
Receiving Reiki is known to have a soothing, refreshing and balancing effect on the whole being. It can work with the causes of any illness or imbalance, as well as the symptoms. It may help to dispel any negative energies and blockages, and will naturally flow to the areas that most need healing. While you lie fully clothed on a comfortable couch, listening to soft music (if you wish), the practitioner will place her hands gently on your body and allow the Reiki energy to flow. Clients often feel warmth or a pleasant tingling, although each client’s experience will be unique. Many clients relax so deeply they fall asleep.
Reiki is not allied to any particular religion or belief system. It is open to all and will work whatever your beliefs. Many of my clients tell me they receive useful insights during healing sessions which raise their awareness of the current blessings and challenges in their life path. Some find it helps in releasing blocked emotions. Others may simply find it physically relaxing and a rare chance to unwind fully, away from everyday pressures.
