Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is an original method of healing, discovered by a Japanese scholar Mikao Usui in Japan in the early 20th century. The Japanese words ‘rei’ meaning ‘universal life’ and ‘ki’ meaning ‘energy’. Reiki is a natural healing energy and is a non-invasive treatment that works on every level as it activates the body’s regenerative self-healing ability. This universal energy is channeled through the practitioner to the recipient, it is a safe, relaxing and simple treatment to receive and can benefit everyone including pregnant women, babies, children and elderly people. The whole body is treated rather than specific symptoms, therefore providing healing on a cellular level of the mind, body, spirit and emotion. As a natural form of healing, Reiki can enhance and support other complementary therapies and conventional medical treatments.
Reiki can be administered on a treatment couch or sitting in a chair.
Reiki therapy is a powerful tool for relaxation and mental clarity, and can be incorporated into a regular health and wellbeing programme.
