What is Reiki?
The practice of Reiki was developed by Mikao Usui in Japan early in the 20th century. The word translates to ‘universal life energy’. The second part of the work Reiki i.e. ‘Ki’ means life force energy just like ‘Chi’ in China and ‘Prana’ in India.
Einstein and later quantum physicists have explained that at quantum level everything that exits is energy. ‘Ki’ is the life force energy that runs through every living thing and when this is out of balance we become unwell.
The Reiki healing technique is based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch. This energy is thought to activate the recipient’s natural regenerative healing processes and therefore aids in the restoration of homeostasis.
The aim of a Reiki treatment is to restore physical and emotional well-being. It is a treatment for balancing, healing and harmonising every aspect of a person; mental, physical, emotional and spiritual.
Reiki is a gentle, safe, non-invasive, hands on, holistic therapy treatment.
During a Reiki treatment you will lie or sit comfortably and the Reiki practitioner will place their hands on or near the body, allowing the Reiki energy to flow. You will remain fully clothed.
We can also combine Reiki with Reflexology and/or Indian Head Massage either as a 60-minute treatment or as an extra-long, deeply relaxing 90-minute treatment. See our Reflexology Treatments for details.
