Energy Healing for Mind, Body & Soul

Reiki is a Japanese technique for reducing stress, aiding relaxation and promoting health.

Reiki is a natural energy healing system which focuses on the mind, body and soul as a holistic entity which can be brought back to health through energy balancing.

Pronounced Ray Kee – the term can be translated as “Universal life force energy”.

Rei: Sacred, Sol, Spirit, Wisdom of Universe.

Ki: Energy

This non-intrusive, fully clothed treatment includes both hands on and hands off the body, whereby the practitioner channels energy to create balance, release stagnation and encourage the bodies own healing mechanisms.

Reiki is based on the idea that ‘an unseen ‘life force energy’ flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s ‘life force energy’ is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

Reiki therefore works on the physical, emotional and spiritual level with little to no side effects or contraindications.

The beauty of Reiki is that the practitioner is attuned to channel energy, with the intention that the clients own healing mechanisms can be activated. The belief system that underpins Reiki is that we each have the ability to self-heal – but that Reiki training and attuning can unlock that potential. For this reason, everyone has the ability to channel Reiki with the right guidance and attunement.


How does Reiki Work?

Scientists have confirmed that everything in the universe is made up of energy – it exists on a continuum from most dense and least conscience that we call ‘physical matter’ to least dense and most conscious which we call ‘spiritual’.

Reiki is a spiritual energy that vibrates at a very high frequency working at an energetic level with the physical matter of the body and the electromagnetic field that surrounds it.

The reiki practitioner channels this universal energy, which is abundant and all around us, for the highest good by placing the hands gently on or above the body.

Typically, the physical response to Reiki is deep relaxation, tingling, heat and cooling sensations. Recipients may also reach a meditative state, feel like they are floating, see colours, images or feel emotions rise.

On an interesting note….

Reiki works regardless of if someone ‘believes in it’.

The Benefits of Reiki - Relaxation for the Body & Mind

Reiki has many amazing benefits, not only will you feel more relaxed after a treatment, people often feel a reduction in stress and anxiety. Many clients walk out of the treatment room with a sense of lightness and positivity. Clients often tell me that they feel a sense of peace and calm after receiving Reiki.

Apart from being extremely relaxing, Reiki helps many of my clients to achieve mental and emotional wellbeing. They tell me that it helps them to cope with difficulties, helps to relieve emotional stress and therefore improve their overall wellbeing.*

The effects of a Reiki treatment is individual to each person. The results are determined by the needs of the person being treated. Some of the results may be: healing, energy balancing, stress, anxiety and emotional relief or an increase in awareness and positivity.

Here are just some of the wonderful benefits of Reiki

Reduces Stress & Anxiety
Reiki can help to reduce the effects that stress has on you by putting your body in to a state of complete relaxation, thereby reducing tension throughout the body’s systems

It can also encourage the release of your body’s natural feel-good hormones; dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin and endorphins. These ‘happy hormones’ are well known for their ability to relieve stress.

Reduces Pain
Reiki may help decrease pain perception by healing the emotional aspect of pain. Reiki is meant to resolve emotional distress by allowing healing energy to flow freely throughout the body, which results in relaxation and reduced pain and tension throughout the body.

Promotes a Positive Mental State
Reiki has the potential to create a sense of deep inner peace and stillness within, which in turn can lead to inner harmony and promote a positive mind set. 

The positive energy that flows during a Reiki treatment can bring mental clarity and help you to cope more with everyday life.

Promotes Relaxation & Aids Sleep
Reiki has the potential to help you to relax, allowing you to find a sense of mental and spiritual balance. This can lead to reduced stress and anxiety, which may in turn help aid sleep.

Reiki helps many clients to clear the mental clutter in their minds. The calming effect of Reiki can help flick the off switch in the brain, therefore reducing internal conflict and easing the tension of our mind, which may not be supporting our sleep.


These are just a few of the benefits Reiki can have on you. Reiki supports the body to maintain the balance that leads to good mental health and wellbeing.
Many of my clients enjoy Reiki due to the fact that this therapy is unobtrusive and performed whilst fully clothed.
