Welcome to Reiki

A brief History of Reiki Treatments

Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy, an energy which is all around us. 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.
There is no belief system attached to Reiki so anyone can receive or learn to give a Reiki treatment, the only prerequisite is the desire to be healed.


This therapy originated at the turn of the century. Reiki is based on the premise that illness is caused by a disruption in the body's energy field or life force
By using specially designed symbols and channelling energy, it is believed that the body can be filled with positive energy causing the disease-making negative energy to disappear. It's a very relaxing treatment that balances the body and brings Mind, Body and Spirit into harmony.

How does it work?

Reiki heals by charging negatively affected parts of the energy field with positive energy. Energy fields in the body each have different vibratory levels and reiki practitioners use their hands to affect and hopefully rebalance these vibrations in the negatively affected part of the body.

What are the contra-actions?

As a general rule, Reiki can't do any harm because it is a form of non-invasive energy healing and will adjust itself to create the most appropriate effect for each individual person. However, although most people feel peaceful and relaxed after treatment, it can stir up emotions as part of the healing process. Some people also experience a healing reaction such as a headache or flu-like symptoms, but any discomfort should be short-lived.

What happens in a Reiki session?

A session begins by presenting you with the opportunity to provide some information about your physical and emotional concerns and the specific areas that you would like to focus on. You will then fully clothed on a massage table, or you may be seated if necessary. The session generally lasts for an hour.

Before we begin I'll explain my different healing-hand postures and their relationship to the energy points on the body. When a Reiki practitioner places their hands in a healing posture with the intent to heal, the energy flows through them and out the hands to the receiver. The energy points on the receiver's body will take in as much of the needed energy to recharge the system, cleanse any stagnant or blocked areas, balance and re-energise the etheric bodies. Healing at this depth promotes a natural healing response on the physical level. Some people feel the energy being taken into their body and describe it as a feeling of warmth or cool air or a mild tingling sensation, others feel nothing, but conclude the session with the overall feeling of relaxation & peace. No body massage of any kind is involved in a Reiki session, but most clients leave feeling refreshed &balanced.

Distance healings are also available. Reiki energy can be sent to anyone, anytime, any place. The energy can be directed to a person or situation. The session is arranged in advance so that the receiver can prepare by creating a state of relaxation, when they will be more sensitive and receptive to the energy.
