Reiki is a natural, gentle and safe hands on healing technique which uses spiritual energy to treat physical ailments without using pressure or massage. You will be asked to lie down, or sit if this is easier for you, but you will not be asked to remove any clothing, except for items that may restrict your comfort such as shoes or spectacles. Treatment is given by placing hands gently on, or just above the body, in a pre-determined sequence of hand positions, spending several minutes holding each position. The touch is intended to be gentle and light and you may feel sensations such as heat, tingling or coolness, or you may feel very little. There is no right or wrong way of experiencing reiki and many people experience a sense of well- being and relaxation, or simply fall asleep!
It is much more than just a physical therapy – reiki is a holistic system for balancing, healing and harmonising all aspects of a person – body, mind, emotions and spirit. It can also be used to encourage personal and spiritual awareness and growth.
Reiki works well and in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. It is a complementary therapy and not an alternative form of healing and is gradually being introduced into some GP surgeries and hospitals.
