“Reiki” is Japanese for ‘universal life energy', and is also a word used to describe a system of natural healing, Founded by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century and evolved as a result of his research, experience and dedication.
Used for stress reduction, self healing and relaxation, Reiki is a non invasive, gentle therapy. Based on the idea of a universal life force energy, the practitioner channels energy whilst laying hands on the client. Although spiritual in nature, this is not religious and reiki does not promote any particular religious belief.
A reiki session focusses on healing with the belief that the energy knows where to go.
At the start of the session, we choose an focus or intent for the healing.
You will lie fully clothed on a couch and gentle music will play (or you can choose silence) whilst the practitioner gently places their hands on various parts of the body (or they may place their hands just above the body).
The session may be concluded with light head massage or facial reflexology depending on our focus and intent.
Many people report feeling intensely relaxed and quiet afterward.
If lying on the couch is difficult, sessions can be done seated or reclining on a recliner. Suitable for everyone.
