The knowledge that an unseen energy flows through all living things and directly effects the quality of health has been part of the wisdom of many cultures since ancient times.The existence of this ‘life energy’ has been verified by recent scientific experiments and medical doctors are considering the role it plays in the functioning of the immune system and the healing process. Because of this, it is becoming a more widely accepted concept.

What is Reiki ?
Reiki is a technique for stress reduction that also promotes healing, allowing everyone to tap into an unlimited supply of ‘life energy’. Reiki is thought to have originated in Tibet thousands of years ago. Reiki was rediscovered by Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist early in the 20th Century.
What Reiki is….
Reiki is a Japanese form of healing.The first part of the word “rei” means guided, and the second part “ki” refers to the lifeforce.Reɪki is a spiritual practice developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui,which has since been adapted by various teachers of varying traditions. It uses a technique commonly called palm healing or hands on healing.
Reiki gives you what you need, whether it’s a release of tension or an energy boost, or both. You do not have to be suffering from an illness to benefit from a reiki treatment. Some clients have Reiki to give clarity to their minds so that they can improve their businesses. Some clients choose to have Reiki to have some quiet ‘me time.’
Reiki can be described as being:-
- Gentle: Reiki’s touch is soft and light.
- Harmless: Reiki can only have positive results.
- Natural: You don’t need any equipment or tools.
- Healing: The highest level of healing is the goal of Reiki.
- Balancing: Reiki will balance your energy levels.
- Relaxing: This is the top reason why most people try Reiki. They want to experience the bliss of deep relaxation.
- Energising: If you’re drained of energy, Reiki will revive you.
How does reiki Work?
Reiki works by treating the whole person including the body, emotions, mind and spirit and creates many beneficial affects including relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being. Many clients have had miraculous healings.
Reiki is simple, natural and safe.
It’s even suitable for young babies.It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and always creates a beneficial effect.
It must be emphasised, that Reiki is not a substitute for regular medical or psychological care, but works in conjunction with them to relieve side effects and promote healing. When my uncle was in St Mary’s Hospice, Selly Oak, Birmingham, I was allowed to give him regular Reiki treatments.
What is a Reiki Treatment ?
Reiki is administered by laying-on hands. A full treatment includes hand positions around the head, shoulders, stomach, legs and feet.The client then turns over, and the hand positions on the back include either side of the spine, the back, hips, knees and the treatment concludes on the backs of the feet.
The client remains fully clothed and either lies in a Reiki bed or sits in a chair. For added comfort, the client can have a blanket wrapped around them. it’s a personal choice.
Hands-On or Hands-Off ?
The hands can be placed in contact with the person or the treatment can be given with the hands a few inches away from the body. This treatment is very flexible. The client directs how they want to receive their Reiki.The comfort of the client is of paramount importance.
How long is the treatment ?
A short Reiki treatment lasts approximately 30 minutes and I mainly work on the front of the client.
A full Reiki treatment usually takes between 45 minutes to an hour and a half so the client should allow themselves plenty of time.
What does a Reiki Treatment feel like ?
What one experiences during a Reiki treatment varies somewhat from person to person. However, feelings of deep relaxation are usually felt by all. In addition, many feel a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and surrounds them. At the end of the treatment, one feels refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.
During the session with reiki, there are no special creams, oils, no manipulation of stressed muscles. I simply lay my hands on or off the client and quietly allow the Reiki energy to do it’s wonderful healing work.
What can be treated with Reiki ?
Reiki has a positive affect on all form of illness and negative conditions .Reiki energy seems to have an intelligence of it’s own as it flows exactly to where it is needed in the client and creating the healing conditions necessary for the client’s individual needs. It is not my own life force energy … I am purely the channel. If it was my energy, it would exhaust me!!
Is Reiki a Religion ?
Although Reiki energy is spiritual in nature, Reiki is not a religion. Reiki is always guided by the Higher Power. Even if you don’t believe in the existence of a Higher Power, Reiki still works.
It’s a fantastic energy!
