What is Reiki?

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese technique for natural healing involving the placement of hands on or above the body in order to channel energy. Reiki is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that allows everyone to tap into an unlimited supply of "life force energy" to improve health and enhance the quality of life.

It is gentle and stimulates the body's own innate wisdom, aiming at the cause of any problem and promoting a holistic balancing of body, mind and spirit.

How can Reiki help you?

Reiki can:

  • cleanse the body of built up toxins
  • relieve pain
  • soothe shock
  • aid the grieving process
  • calm the mind and emotions
  • accelerate the body's natural ability to heal itself
  • promote a state of total relaxation and well-being

Reiki in no way conflicts with medical procedures and in fact supports and enhances all medical treatments.

How does Reiki work?

The word Reiki is made up of two Japanese words, "Rei" meaning universal wisdom and "Ki" meaning life energy. Reiki can be described as 'universal life force energy' and it this that the Reiki practitioner transmits to the person receiving it.

Having a Reiki treatment

A Reiki treatment is usually carried out with the recipient lying down on a bench, and remaining fully clothed though watches and jewellery may be best removed. The Reiki practitioner places their hands on or above the recipient's body at various positions, which in many traditions are regarded as corresponding to energy centres, or 'chakras'.

During the Reiki session you may feel sensations of heat, cold, tingling or no sensations whatsoever - this is not necessarily an indication that the Reiki is 'working' or not, everyone's experience is individual and may vary from one session to the next. It is almost always a very soothing experience and many people drift off into sleep. It can leave you feeling relaxed but at the same time as if your batteries have been recharged!

The Reiki practitioner is Jane Elizabeth.
