Is Reiki the Right Therapy for Me?
Reiki is great for dissolving stress and anxiety, and for emotional wellbeing. It can provide support during periods of change, and with challenges in life, such as illness, disease or injury. It works well in conjunction with other therapies and conventional medicine. Reiki provides a means of letting go of heavy emotions and the stressful clutter that we carry around. It can help with creative blocks, negativity and unresolved feelings from the past, enabling you to live life in the present.
The Benefits of Reiki
What Happens in a Session?
You will be made welcome and comfortable. The Reiki practitioner focuses or channels healing energy though their hands while you simply relax and receive the energy. You remain fully clothed, although you will be asked to take your shoes off! The practitioner generally holds their hands above the client and will at times place their hands lightly on the client instead. Reiki induces a state of deep relaxation, and a sense of wellbeing and support. People experience Reiki in different ways, so you may feel heat, you may feel energy moving, or tingling sensations, you may see light or colour or have dream like imagery, or experience something else. A lot of people fall asleep, or experience an altered state of consciousness, somewhere in-between being asleep and awake.
How Does it Work?
A Reiki session optimises the body's ability to heal, by helping to cleanse the body of toxins and balancing the body's energy systems, increasing energy and boosting immunity and vitality. Reiki works on all levels of being; spiritual, emotional, mental and physical. It promotes healing on subconscious levels, and continues to work over a period of time after the session. Reiki promotes detoxification so please remember to drink extra water over the days following your session!

Sciatica: “My leg and back have felt really good since I came to see you. I have had a couple of nerve twinges in my leg but nothing compared to what I usually have.
I am also having a better night’s sleep because my leg is not cramping up.”
The Origins of Reiki
Reiki originated in Japan and was developed by a Buddhist, Dr. Mikao Usui, who taught Reiki to hundreds of students in Japan in the early twentieth century. It soon spread to the West and is becoming increasingly popular today as people discover its potential and more people train to be practitioners and teachers. Although Reiki has Buddhist origins, it is suitable for everyone, whatever your religious or spiritual beliefs are.
