Healing energy for relaxation and well-being

Reiki is an ancient technique rediscovered by Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese theologian, in the 19th century. It is a form of spiritual healing where the therapist channels healing energy into the patient. In Japanese the word Reiki means "Universal Life Energy". It is a form of hands-on healing which has been done since the beginning of time. "Rei" describes its boundless aspects and "Ki" is the vital force that flows through all living beings.

Reiki is a specific energy that helps our own healing systems to work to their full potential, revitalising and restoring us back to a balanced and harmonious life state. Reiki passes from a Reiki healer, who has been atttuned to Reiki energy, into the receiver, and works on many different levels of mind, body and spirit. It brings all aspects of the receiver's being into harmonious balance, according to their individual needs and and goes directly to where it is most needed. It is a simple and powerful process, not based on any religious beliefs, that allows the healing light energy of the universe to flow through the hands of the giver to wherever it is needed in the receiver. Reiki can provide real enrichment and harmony to your everyday life.

The Reiki principles-

Just for today, do not worry
Just for today, do not anger
Earn your living honestly
Honour your parents, teachers and elders
Love your neighbour as yourself
Show gratitude to every living thing
-Dr Mikao Usui

Reiki not only promotes your physical well-being but also has a positive effect on your emotional and spiritual bodies and, after a treatment, many people feel refreshed, relaxed, cleared and more at peace with themselves. It is suitable for all - healthy and sick, young and old. You can use it to replenish your vital energy, to strengthen your immune system and to help with healing of ailments and illnesses or just to realign with yourself and have a deeper feeling of contentment.

What happens in the treatment?

A Reiki treatment can be done laying down or sitting in a chair and you will stay fully clothed.
It is better not to talk during the treatment and to try and relax, close your eyes and be open to the treatment. I will then place my hands just above different areas of the body, usually starting with the head and working down towards the feet. You may experience feelings of warmth, heat or even coolness and tingling as I channel the healing energy into you. The treatment can be 30 minutes to 1 hour long. I can combine aromatherapy massage, oils and ear acupuncture with Reiki. Reiki will naturally go to wherever it is needed most.

There are no side effects with Reiki. It affects each person differently but it always acts wherever the receiver needs it most.

Sometimes I may ask you to talk to your GP before arranging a treatment. Always make sure that you avoid alcohol for at least 5 hours before a treatment. Drink lots of water after a treatment as this will help with the removal of toxins.
