What is Reiki?

What will Reiki do for me?

Reiki is an intelligent energy and has a remarkable ability to prioritise what is needed by the client. The client will draw exactly what they need at that time. By topping up the client's own energy and relaxing them, leaving them feeling peaceful and serene, the client's own healing mechanism is boosted. Reiki can also lead clients to a deeper level of self-awareness, encouraging them naturally to make whatever changes are necessary to maintain or restore health and wellbeing.

How does Reiki work?

Reki is channelled by a practitioner, who has been attuned to this energy, in a line of Master teachers going back to Dr Usui. Reiki flows through the practitioners hands to wherever it is needed in the client's energy. The client remains fully clothed and can either be seated for a treatment or lie down. I will either touch the client's body gently or work off the body at an appropriate distance, as I am guided in each individual case. I can also give distance treatments from my practice at home to wherever a client may happen to be, if that is more convenient for the client.

The History of Reiki

Reiki means Universal Life Force Energy. It is an ancient form of healing thought to have spread through Tibet, China and India and was rediscovered in 1914 by Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese Monk. Dr Usui devoted the rest of his life to practising, developing and refining the art of Reiki and teaching and passing the art to others. The system is simple to learn and use had has since spread worldwide. It is now readily available.


Reiki has a wide variety of applications - it can clear energy blocks, release trapped emotions, cleanse the body of toxins, quieten the mind, restore balance, relieve aches and pains and alleviate a wide range of conditions. Please refer to the section "conditions" for further details.
