Reiki is an ancient re-discovered form of stress reduction that also promotes healing. The practice of Reiki dates back over 2500 years ago to Tibet. Practitioners channel energy in a particular pattern to aid in healing and harmonising. It has grown in popularity amongst Westerners since being popularised by Japanese massage parlours.

Reiki treatments offer a range of benefits to our clients, including:

 – enhancing the natural healing process of the body
 – relieving stress
 – promoting deep relaxation
 – helping to relieve pain
 – aiding concentration
 – boosting the immune system
 – increasing joint mobility
 – helping to detox the body

Reiki is a holistic therapy; it recognises the interconnection and interplay between mind, body and soul. It is very gentle and non-intrusive. Although the treatment is spiritual in nature, Reiki is not of any religion, creed or doctrine and the recipient does not need any preparation for the treatment other than the desire to get better.

Here are the core principles of Reiki:

‘Just for today I will give thanks for my many blessings’

‘Just for today I will not worry’

‘Just for today I will not be angry’

‘Just for today I will do my work honestly’

‘Just for today, I will be kind to my neighbour and every living thing.’

 

Following these principles will help you to reap the full benefits of the treatment, and will help to put you in the correct frame of mind to get the most out of your Reiki session.

How does Reiki work?

Reiki is based on the principle that the body requires positive energy to function normally, and that when the body is low in this positive energy it can’t operate as well. Our Reiki treatments can help to drastically increase the amount of positive energy in your body, which can promote healing and help you to handle stress and other health problems more effectively.

It is administered by ‘laying on hands’, in which the therapist will apply small amounts of pressure to help improve the flow of this positive energy.

If we break down the word, we can actually get a better understanding of what it is all about. Rei means “God’s Wisdom” or “the Higher Power” and Ki means “life force energy”. So Reiki literally means “spiritually guided life force energy.”
