Harmony in Mind, Body & Spirit

Reiki


Reiki TreatmentWhat is Reiki?

Reiki energy is a wonderful safe and gentle, non-intrusive hands on healing energy, which can work to heal physical, mental and emotional ailments. It works by restoring any imbalances we carry in our bodies and minds. These imbalances are caused by our internal response to external stress and events. In bringing balance and harmony it enables healing to take place. The word Reiki is a Japanese word, which means “Universal Life Force Energy”. That is the essence of Reiki. It is a healing energy which is all around us, is an integral part of the Universe we live in, works intelligently and is abundant and limitless.

Once a person has been attuned to Reiki they can use Reiki in many different aspects of their lives over and above healing. For example Reiki can be used to help solve problems, for intuitive guidance and for manifestation. The Reiki tradition is a Japanese one which was brought to the world by Dr Mikao Usui in the early 20th Century. Dr Usui had studied many great spiritual works in an attempt to understand healing. It was his life’s work and culminated in him having a life changing spiritual experience when he was given the symbols and keys of Reiki healing and Reiki attunement. He was the first Reiki Master and it is from him that Reiki originates and has spread.

As a result of cultural differences the western tradition of Reiki varies subtly from the Japanese and was brought to the west by Mrs Hawayo Takata. One difference between the two cultures is that here in the west we work using an understanding of Chakras, which have their origins in Ayurvedic medicine.

Receiving a Reiki Treatment

Reiki is an extremely safe and effective therapy, which is suitable for most people. Before receiving your first Reiki Treatment I will undertake a confidential consultation with you. I believe this consultation is mutually beneficial. It gives me an understanding of what we are treating and helps to underpin anything which may come up during treatment. From a client’s perspective being allowed to talk openly and confidentially is part of the healing process. For many people this may be the first time they have articulated a problem or emotion and this in itself can be cathartic and restorative.

For the treatment itself all you need to do is remove your footwear and make yourself comfortable on the treatment couch. I then initiate the Reiki energy and place my hands on your body, working to a number of prescribed hand positions. I also work intuitively, guided by Reiki and often receive information via my third eye. This may be about where to place my hands to guide the energy or other information relating to my client that I am asked to share with them.

Allow 90 minutes in total for an appointment, to include a consultation prior to treatment and feedback afterwards and a 60 minutes of Reiki. Price £40.
