It should be understood that Reiki is not a "regulated" therapy at the moment and this form of healing is conferred on the Therapist who receives it from a "Reiki Master" who should be able to provide their "lineage" back to an original Reiki Master in Japan from where it originated.

Reiki is a Japanese word representing “Universal Life Energy”….the energy which sustains us and which is around us and is within us! As a natural healing technique this natural energy is amplified and activated to promote healing, balance and well being. A Reiki treatment can be given anywhere and at anytime. The way of receiving a treatment is a simple process by which hands are placed on or off the body in a sequence of positions to cover the whole body.

The therapist is a channel through which the energy is drawn by the need or imbalance of the receiver.

The recipient simply lies on a couch and relaxes and if one is not able to lie down it can also be applied in a sitting position. The main thing is that you are comfortable and there is no need to remove any clothing

The whole person is treated rather than the symptoms and a session can take up to one and half hours.

Reiki flows to the areas of need, soothing pain and supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. It has a positive effect on many different conditions and aids healing on all levels of being: Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual. Reiki supports all forms of treatment both orthodox and complementary.

Ideally, a client would receive 4 treatments in a row — however one treatment only can be very beneficial.
