What is Reiki
Reiki is a safe, gentle, non-intrusive hands on Japanese healing technique which channels energy into the body
in order to break down any blockages in the energy system that may be contributing to, or manifesting as, physical illnesses or emotional issues.  Reiki is an incredibly relaxing and calming treatment, and helps to promote and accelerate the natural healing process of the body’s ability to heal itself and restore balance on all levels, physical, mental and emotional

A typical Reiki session
Before you begin your treatment, your practitioner will explain to you what the treatment involves.  During this consultation you will be ask to complete a form with your personal details and any medical history.

The recipient remains fully clothed just removing shoes and glasses for comfort as Reiki energy passes through all materials.
The treatment itself involves the practitioner placing their hands gently on the body, or slightly above, in a predetermined sequence from the top of the head down the body following the lines of your chakras.  The position of the hands is non-intrusive and should not cause any discomfort, the touch should be gentle and light.  Reiki is not supposed to manipulate or massage.  If you feel uncomfortable at any point, please say. 

Reiki treatment can also incorporated the use of crystals during the session to enhance the healing of a particular problem and balance the 7 main chakras.  Aura cleansing can also be done with the use of a crystal wand and crystals prior to a reiki treatment.

The healing session will take around an hour and afterwards you may feel very relaxed and calm or you may
feel energised.  There is no right or wrong way to experience Reiki

How many sessions will I need
This will vary from person to person.  It is important to remember that Reiki healing is a process and therefore may take a number of sessions.  Generally, we recommend a series of 3 sessions for the more chronic ailment or emotional issue to kick start your body’s own healing.  Distance healing can also be arranged for anyone who would like to continue the healing once they return home.
