What is Reiki?

Reiki is a very gentle healing technique. The practitioner acts as a channel to draw in the energy that is all around us and directs it to the receiver, in order to support the receiver’s own healing mechanisms. It works on the premise that we have the ability to heal ourselves, but that we sometimes need a little support in doing so.
Reiki can be beneficial for physical health issues, as well as emotional and mental health issues as it works on every level.
Unlike many other therapies, it has no contraindications, so it is suitable for anyone, including cancer patients and children.
Some people consider reiki to be unscientific but usually these are people who haven’t tried it. In fact we know from studies that reiki can speed up healing. If you aren’t sure about reiki, that’s OK, I invite you to give it a go and try it out for yourself.

What happens during a reiki session?

You will be asked to lie down on the massage bed and relax with your eyes closed. There is no need to remove any clothing. Different people feel different sensations during a session, and this can vary day to day as well. You might feel a sensation of energy moving around your body, blood pumping, or heat or cold. Some people don’t feel anything at all, which doesn’t mean it hasn’t worked. Most people feel the process is relaxing.

Likewise, after a session, there is no right or wrong way to feel. You might feel sleepy and relaxed, or energised. You might notice your senses are heightened, or you might feel emotions coming to the surface. Again you might feel nothing at all. All of these are normal and again there is no right or wrong way to feel.
