What is Reiki?


Reiki is defined in the Oxford English dictionary as:

“A healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being”.

It is however,  widely accepted that Reiki can be given and received equally effectively hands-off or via distant healing (we offer both). The Japanese word ‘Reiki’ literally translates as universal energy (life force).

History of Reiki

This Reiki system of healing was developed by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century. It is a non-invasive often non touch complementary therapy that has been taught and used in the UK and West since the late 1900s. However,  Eastern medicine has work with universal life force energy for  thousands of years, often calling it Chi or Prana.

Reiki is energy with intelligence-it always knows where it needs to go

Reiki supports Western medicine and or it can be used alone. It is important to note that it is not a replacement for traditional medication or treatments, and advice and guidance from your Dr should always be sort.

Reiki is not based on any belief, faith or Religion. However,  research using quantum physics is starting to help us to understand how Reiki may work to benefit individuals.

It has been suggested that in years to come it may be known as energy medicine based on scientifically measurable energy emitted from the healer’s hands.


What To Expect From A Reiki Healing Session

Reiki is given fully clothed in a quiet and comfortable environment. It is safe for adults, children, mothers–to–be, babies and animals. Reiki works by allowing the individual to channel the universal life force energy through the practitioner to help and foster their own healing. Reiki is not the practitioner healing the individual, but the practitioner channelling the energy for the individual to heal themselves.
