Reiki, pronounced 'Ray-Key', is a Japanese healing system discovered in the early 1900's by a Japanese Buddhist monk called Mikao Usui. Reiki is a safe, non-intrusive, non-diagnostic and non-manipulative complementary therapy that can help to relax, de-stress, re-balance and re-charge the mind, body and spirit, helping you to maintain a healthy, stress-free lifestyle.
Reiki means 'universal life-force'. When you are connected to this loving energy during a Reiki treatment it gently flows through you, initiating your body's own natural ability to heal itself and re-balance. Reiki releases energy blockages and allows your life-force to flow freely.
During a Reiki session you will lie on a massage table, fully clothed. I place my hands in various positions on or above you, acting as a channel for the Reiki (or Ki) to move through, clearing and enhancing the energy throughout the body according to your needs.
There are no contraindications for Reiki so this treatment is suitable for everyone including pregnant women, children, babies and even our companion animals.

There is increasing research documenting the effects of Reiki, such as lowered heart rate, blood pressure, and stress hormones and increased immune strength).The multi-levelled, rapid response to Reiki suggests a complex process that engages many body systems, simultaneously or in quick succession, shifting the body from domination by the "fight or flight" (stress) response to the relaxation response, and supporting the body's own healing mechanisms.
Reiki clears the mind and improves focus as you feel grounded and centred. Reiki can support you in staying centred in the present moment rather than getting caught up in regrets about the past, or anxieties about the future. It can strengthen your ability to accept and work with the way events are unfolding, even when they don’t follow your desires or timetable. You begin to react to situations, people and yourself in a supportive way rather than acting our of habit.
Reiki is a healing therapy which works well alongside standard medical treatment. Reiki is a complementary therapy and is not a replacement for medical treatment. You should always consult your doctor if you have any health concerns or medical conditions.
