What is Reiki ?
Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing system in which a Reiki Practioner channels Reiki or Universal Life Force Energy to the client. Reiki restores physical and emotional well-being as well as activating natural healing processes in the body.
Reiki is a complementary treatment and can be used alongside other conventional or complementary treatments.
The method of receiving Reiki is simple. The recipient remains clothed and lies on a couch or sits on a chair and relaxes. The practitioner gently places their hands in a series of non-intrusive positions on or near the body. There is no massage or manipulation. The whole person is treated rather than specific areas. Sessions are 45minutes long.

What does Reiki feel like?
Each person experiences Reiki differently depending on their individual needs
at the time. Clients may or may not feel sensations during a Reiki treatment. Experiences reported by recipients include deep relaxation promoting a calm, peaceful sense of well being on. Some people feel sensations of heat, tingling, or experience seeing colours, whilst others can have an emotional response,
Reiki can be beneficial in circumstances that are short term, but can also support people dealing with long-standing conditions, helping to bring comfort, acceptance and a more positive outlook.
Children usually love Reiki. The length of a session is often shorter than it would be for an adult.
Animals also respond well to Reiki, they too seem to find it relaxing and soothing
In such cases Reiki can be a great comfort, helping to promote a sense of peace and acceptance for the dying and their families.
How much Reiki would I need?
A single session may be sufficient, but it is best to discuss this with your practitioner. For instance, if you have long standing phycial, emotional or spiritual issues, a series of sessions may be beneficial. In general if you find that helpful changes are taking place, it is a good idea to continue treatment.
