What is Reiki?


Energy or 'Ki' flows through all living things, and a person's energy should be strong, balanced and free flowing in order to support optimal physical, emotional, spiritual and mental health.    

As a result of life experiences, such as illness, surgery, traumatic events, stress, bereavement, anxiety, etc, this energy can become weakened, imbalanced or may not flow as easily; these changes to energy flow can then give rise to a wide range of issues, such as depression, anxiety, sleep problems, pain, addiction, relationship problems, issues with weight, etc.

Reiki, originating in Japan, is made up of two Japanese words, 'Rei', meaning 'Universal Life' and 'Ki', meaning 'Energy'. It is an individual, non-invasive, complementary therapy which, alongside traditional medical approaches, and other complementary therapies, can address problems, by helping to restore optimal energy flow and balance.  It can also be used in a preventative way to help stop the problems arising in the first place.

Reiki is creative and intuitive, and aims to allow you to reach your full potential in every aspect of your life. Unlike some other types of therapy, Reiki is not specifically a talking therapy, making this a very private, personal and discrete form of health improvement and self-development.

Reiki can be given either through Face to Face sessions or through Distance sessions.  For the reasons above, the purpose for having Reiki is very personal and individual; therefore for some, only one session may be needed; others might need more sessions with varying frequency depending on what is needed for their change and well-being.
