Reiki is a system of energy healing, originating in Japan. Reiki is based on the premise that illness, whether physical or emotional, causes a disruption in a person’s energy field, creating an ‘energy blockage’ within the body. The Reiki treatment seeks to remove these blockages and restore the natural energetic balance within the body. Reiki is said to accelerate the body’s own natural ability to heal itself on all levels – physical, emotional and spiritual.
Who can benefit from reiki?
Almost everyone can benefit in some way from reiki. Aside from the relaxation, stress relief, improved energy levels and general sense of wellbeing brought about by the treatment, reiki may also bring relief from a wide range of chronic and acute conditions. Reiki is suitable for all ages including babies and children.
Some complaints which may be successfully treated with reiki include:
- sleep problems
- joint and muscle problems
- stress related conditions, anxiety and mental health issues
What happens when you go for a treatment?
Your first session will include a consultation to establish your past and present health, diet and lifestyle. This consultation is an essential part of your treatment as it allows me to find out about any health problems you may have and design a treatment plan tailor-made to address your specific needs. The consultation will take around 15-20 minutes. There is no charge for consultation.
A standard reiki treatment lasts around 45-50 minutes. It is carried out with the client reclined in a special chair or sitting upright if this is more comfortable. There is no need to remove any clothing.
During the treatment, I will place my hands in a series of positions on or just over the body. Reiki may be felt as a flow of energy, mild tingling, warmth, coolness, or other sensations. Reiki is deeply relaxing, and often has a profound calming effect on the client.
How will you feel after a treatment?
The effects of reiki are unique to each person. Most people feel extremely relaxed after a session. Others feel energised and uplifted. Most clients claim a marked improvement in their presenting conditions, as well as their general health and wellbeing, including energy levels, quality of sleep and stress levels, with continued improvement after subsequent sessions.
Please note that due to Advertising Standards Authority regulations, reiki practitioners are restricted in the claims they can make for the treatment. Practitioners cannot diagnose or offer a ‘cure’. Nor can they claim that the treatment ‘can’ or ‘will’ benefit a client, only that it ‘might’. Regulations also prevent practitioners advertising that reiki will help specific, named medical conditions, hence only general conditions are referenced above.
However, many clients claim very positive and dramatic improvements following treatment. Please see my client testimonials for a selection of comments from current and past clients.
