What is Reiki?


The word ‘Reiki’ (pronounced Ray-Kee) is made up of two Japanese characters: ‘Rei’ meaning universe, or Spirit, and ‘Ki’, meaning energy, the whole literally meaning ‘universal life energy’.

Essentially Reiki is a natural energy healing system that is very simple, very gentle, and has no side effects - it is a treatment that can be helpful for anybody at all - any age, any physical or mental health condition, at any time.

Reiki helps to balance a person from within, aiding every aspect; the physical, emotional, mental and even spiritual. It eases all types of troubles and helps to clear and soothe the mind, and leave a person feeling calm and relaxed. Reiki is a holistic approach, taking into account the welfare of the whole person, and not just the immediate concern. It helps the body's healing processes, the mind to de-clutter, de-stress and calm, and the emotions to be released and re-balanced.

Reiki energy can help to clear and cleanse the root cause of any problems being

experienced, as well as the symptoms. It works in conjunction with the chakra points on the body, releasing any stuck energy or blocks, re-energising and re-aligning them so that the whole of the body, mind and spirit are in harmony and complete balance.

Reiki has an accumulative effect – the more energy that goes in, the greater the effect – so it could take several sessions or more  to completely heal a person, depending on the specific nature of the problem. Regular Reiki healing helps to keep the recipient completely balanced, calm and relaxed on all levels, easing pain and speeding up the body's natural healing process. A Reiki healing is gentle, effective, calming and very relaxing. A Reiki session often sends the recipient to sleep, waking up to feel refreshed and rejuvenated.

Whether you are looking to heal something specific, or are just curious and want to try a Reiki healing, I would be pleased to help you.
