Many people have heard of Reiki but are not sure what it is. I will keep the description simple as the best way to find out about it is to give it a go. Reiki means “Universal Life-Force Energy” as most of us are aware everything is made up of energy – even the scientists amongst you believe this part. Our bodies are filled with life-force energy and our quality of health is directly related to this.
You don’t have to “Believe” in Reiki for it to work you just need to be open minded and receptive to the treatment. I find once clients have had 1 session they always want more.
It is a holistic treatment which helps & supports a person to rebalance, reenergise, refocus, heal and harmonise all aspects of their mind, body, emotions and spirit. It can also be used to encourage personal and spiritual awareness and growth. Some practitioners hover their hands off the body but the type of Reiki I practice is Usui a gentle hands on non-intrusive treatment.
Some reasons clients have come to me have been relief for a bad back, worrying about a birth, chronic fatigue syndrome, feeling overwhelmed and unable to focus on anything, to de-stress, the list goes on….
Reiki works by treating the whole person and not just the symptom so you could find that you have been suffering from a pain for many years and have always “popped pills” to ease this but it keeps coming back – Reiki gets to the root cause, so you could find after a series of treatments the pain has disappeared for good. Depending on the individual and the issue depends on how many treatments the client needs. One isolated treatment wouldn’t usually resolve things, yes you would feel relaxed and hopefully re-energised however you may want to consider a block booking for something a little more deep rooted.

Since being introduced to Reiki it really has changed my life and given me a new perspective on things. If you have read the Secret and understand the Law of Attraction then this treatment is for you as one of the techniques we work with is setting intentions and visualisations and then making these become a reality. – It really has helped me Live my DREAM. Remember a bad situation is an opportunity to open something within YOU.
