What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese technique which promotes the flow of energy in the body. It is made up of 2 words, Rei and Ki (pronounced Ray-Key) which when brought together means Universal Life Force Energy . This Universal Life Force Energy is all around us and is available to everyone.
Reiki can be traced back many thousands of years spanning many cultures and civilizations. It was reintroduced in it's present form in the late 19th Century by Dr Mikao Usui.
Reiki flows through every living thing and is a simple, natural and safe method of energy healing. Reiki helps a number of illnesses and ailments by not only helping decrease pain levels but also helping relax the mind enabling stress reduction and relaxation to help speed up the healing process. It promotes balance within the body and has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and ailment and always creates a beneficial effect.

Reiki is a complementary therapy that also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques. More and more Dr's are seeing the benefit that Reiki can have on patients to help minimise the symptoms and side affects of treatments and promote recovery. For this reason we are seeing more Dr's surgeries and hospitals welcoming Reiki into their practices and wards.
I am an Accredited Reiki Master and as part of my training, I have also attended and passed the Sam Buxton Sunflower Healing Trust Healing in Hospitals and Hospices training. The Sam Buxton Sunflower Healing Trust is a charity that supports cancer patients and their families and this has enabled me to be fully trained to offer Reiki within any Hospital or Hospice environment.
As an accredited member of the FHT for Reiki, I am listed on the
FHT Accredited register and can accept Doctor referrals and have received training to work in environments such as hospitals and hospices.
How does Reiki Work?
As mentioned previously, Reiki allows positive energy to flow into the body through the practitioner which in turn balances and heals the energy in the body of the client.
You can either lie down on a bed or sit in a chair for a treatment and as you relax in the environment that you are in, the practitioner is used as a channel for this energy to come from the universe through them and out of the palms of their hands into the client by placing their hands on or hovering above the body.
As the energy moves from the practitioner to the client, the energy then begins to move through the client’s system naturally, directing itself to the source of any imbalances.
What can you expect from your Reiki treatment?
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit, creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
During your treatment you may experience;-
A rise or fall in temperature,
You may see colours or pictures,
You may feel like you're floating,
You may feel full of emotions and want to laugh or cry.
This is your body’s way of starting the healing process.
You may on the other hand not experience any of these things and this too is perfectly normal. If you don't experience any of this it does not mean that the treatment hasn't worked, as every client is different and even every treatment can be different for the same client.
The client will draw into themselves the amount of energy that they need to bring about the necessary changes.
I generally recommend either 30 minutes or 1 hour treatment sessions. However, if you would like a different length of appointment please get in touch. All prices below are based on adult prices.
