Treatments : Reiki Energy Treatment

The word Reiki is made up of two Japanese words – Rei which means “Universal or Higher Consciousness” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually a concept of “Universally guided life force energy”. A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you.

Natural Healing


Reiki is the name given to a system of natural healing which evolved in Japan from the experience and dedication of Dr Mikao Usui (d. 1926). Fired by a burning question, Dr Usui was inspired to develop this healing system from ancient teachings after many years of study, research and meditation. He spent the rest of his life practising and teaching Reiki. Today Reiki continues to be taught by Reiki Masters who have trained in the tradition passed down from Master to student.

Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.

Many have reported miraculous results. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and problem which always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

Although Reiki can be a very sacred experience for some people, no specific or religious beliefs, faith or philosophy are necessary in order to receive a treatment as it works in harmony with most belief systems. All you need is an open mind and the desire for the healing and change to take place in your life.

A Reiki Treatment

The method of receiving a Reiki treatment from a practitioner is a very simple process. The recipient simply lies on a couch and relaxes. If they are unable to lie down the treatment can be given in a sitting position, the main thing is for the recipient to be as comfortable as possible. There is no need to remove any clothing as Reiki will pass through anything, even plaster casts. The practitioner gently places their hands non-intrusively in a sequence of positions which cover the whole body. The whole person is treated rather than specific symptoms. A full treatment usually takes up to 1 hour with each position held for several minutes.

During a Reiki treatment some clients notice a feeling of warmth, tingling sensations or a gentle feeling of waves of energy, or even a floating feeling, while others are aware of particular colours or their emotions or thoughts. Most people experience a profound sense of peace and total relaxation, a sense of being cared for and nurtured. Sometimes the Reiki practitioners’ hands feel very warm or sometimes they feel cool. Each Reiki experience is a unique and individual as the recipient.

The Benefits of Reiki

Reiki will flow to the individuals’ areas of need, soothing pain and supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Reiki restores the balance in one’s life. It instils a deep sense of calm, relaxing the mind and reducing stress and tension levels. It can accelerate the body’s own natural healing process and reduce recovery times, reduce pain levels and improve the efficiency of the immune system. It can increase energy and vitality levels, improve focus and concentration. It can promote a more positive outlook, enhance creativity and raise self-esteem and awareness encouraging personal and spiritual growth. Acute injuries can be helped to heal very quickly but some more chronic illness can take a while longer. With terminal illnesses, where there is not enough time for the progress of the disease to be reversed. However, in such cases there is usually great benefit and enhancement of the quality of life giving an immense sense of peace and acceptance during the time remaining.

Reiki is not a replacement for conventional medicine but can work alongside all other forms of treatment, both orthodox and complementary, to support and enhance their effects.

The Reiki treatments are suitable for anyone at any age, even small children, babies, and the elderly. Plants and animals can also receive and benefit greatly from the gift of Reiki.
