What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese healing art that was developed by Dr Usui in Japan in the early 20th century. It is pronounced ray-key.
You might also hear it called Reiki energy, Usui system of Reiki and therapeutic touch.
The Japanese word Reiki means universal energy. Eastern medicine systems work with this energy, which flows through all living things and is vital to well being. The energy is known as 'Ki' in Japan, 'Chi' in China and 'prana' in India. Reiki isn't part of any type of religion or belief system. It is best described as a form of hands on healing used as a complementary therapy.
How can Reiki help?
As a Master Reiki practitioner I will be working to change and balance the energy fields in and around your body to help on a physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual level.
What might I experience?
As with all therapies, the experience is as individual as the person having it, I have had people feedback that they feel a soothing sensation, an easing of worries, tingling, releasing of tension and pain, some people see colours or images of something peaceful, most express feeling very relaxed.
What's a typical session like?
Our first meeting we will discuss your initial reasons for coming for therapy and what you hope to achieve from our session/s. I’ll take details of your medical history and lifestyle and from there we can choose what would be most beneficial for you on that occasion. Because I offer a range of therapies there will be something that we will agree to, or maybe a combination of several therapies that would be suitable at that time.
I would allow up to 80 minutes for the first session and 60 minutes for follow ups.
How many treatments will I need?
This really would be dependant on you, what your requirements are and how you feel the treatments are benefitting you. Of course like anything, giving something a chance to work through the body and the ripple effects it can have on other areas of our wellbeing will have a more profound effect the more we do something.
Where are the treatments carried out?
I have a relaxing treatment room in my home where I carry out many of my treatments although I do offer mobile services within a reasonable distance. Please note that my treatment room is up a short flight of stairs so if you struggle with them, I can come to you.
What do I sit on?
Depending on what combination of treatments we decide on, I can use a reclining chair called a Lafuma, an onsite acupressure chair or a massage table. If any of these are not suitable for you we can use an upright chair, or if you are a wheelchair user treatments can be carried out from here.
What do I need to wear?
For Reiki alone you would remain fully clothed, removing anything like belts, shoes, glasses or watches. If being used in combination with another treatment then you shall remain as you are, covered and appropriately comfortable.
How much will my treatments cost?
