Reiki Treatments

What is Reiki Therapy?

Reiki is a deep relaxation technique that reduces stress and promotes healing. It re-activates the body’s natural energy system and its capacity to heal itself, bringing you back into balance on every level - physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, putting your body in the best position to heal itself.

Where did Reiki originate?

Picture of Mikao Usui In Japan. Dr. Mikao Usui spent many years meditating, studying and researching both Western medicine and ancient healing systems and techniques. In 1922 he developed the principles and techniques of the Usui System of Natural Healing or Reiki as it is now called. It is grounded in a gentle, peaceful philosophy.

During this time he became a well-known and popular healer in Japan and a successful teacher. He taught this system to many students, all of whom started out being treated by him.

What happens during a therapy session?

Wonderfully soothing music is played while the practitioner gently places their hands non-intrusively in a sequence of positions which cover certain parts of the body. The whole person is treated rather than specific symptoms. All full treatments usually take 1¼ hours (15 minute consultation is included).


What will I feel?

Treatments are safe, gentle, and non-invasive. Anyone can enjoy Reiki’s benefits, including children and pregnant women. Because treatments are personalised, each person will feel something different. Feedback has varied: feeling warmth, from feeling heat to feeling code, feeling waves of energy, sensing various colours, or having no specific sensations. Reiki does, however, work towards the highest benefit for the person receiving the treatment, and the benefits can be quite remarkable, from feeling deeply relaxed and calm, to obtaining relief from long-term pain and fatigue.
