What is Reiki?
Reiki is an ancient form of ‘hands on’ healing, thought to be thousands of years old. It is believed to have originated as a Tibetan Buddhist practice, rediscovered in the 1800’s. The word Reiki is derived from two Japanese words – ‘rei’ meaning universal spirit and ‘ki’ meaning life force energy. It is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. As a Reiki Master and Teacher I provide Reiki attunement workshops at levels I, II and III.

How does Reiki work?
This gentle treatment is given over clothing and involves hands being placed in a sequence of non-invasive positions to cover the whole body. Reiki energy is drawn through the therapist by the need or imbalance in the recipient, it works by dissolving or eliminating toxic energy and substances from many levels whether physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. Usually given lying down but may by be performed sitting and may be given just over a problem area.
There is a choice of either 30 minutes or 1 hour treatments.
