What is Reiki?
Reiki is generally described as an energy healing system, founded in the early 1900's by Japanese scholar Mikao Usui.
First and foremost it is a natural and safe therapy that everyone can use to promote healing, as well as relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Reiki’s origins lie in Japan, translating to mean ‘universal life energy’.
"What would I need reiki for?"
As we know, energy nourishes and maintains all living things. When this energy flows freely there is balance and harmony within and around us – but when it’s interrupted, our wellbeing and health can be too.
Reiki involves the transfer of universal energy from the therapist’s hands to the client. Energy flows to the affected parts of the energy field, clearing and revitalising these pathways.
How does Reiki work?
During a treatment, the therapist's hands may be placed on or off their client; working on both physical healing and the more subtle body energy within your auric field.
Reiki is often used alongside other therapeutic or medical techniques to increase their effectiveness. As part of a holistic approach, your therapist might use crystals in your treatments to enhance the experience and results. Working intuitively, crystals are placed on or around the patient as an aid to treatment on a physical as well as mental level.
Just like Reiki, crystals have intense healing and balancing properties. They can tackle and release stagnant, blocked energy. Some describe them as little ‘stones of therapy’!
A Reiki therapist aims to treat and rebalance your whole body from head to toe. We hope to share this holistic experience and all its benefits with you.
