You may be asking yourself “What on earth is Reiki?” and “How does it work?”
Let my explain more and introduce you to this amazing holistic therapy.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese 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.
The 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 works on physical, emotional and spiritual levels 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.

Reiki is amazing as a stand alone therapy but the reason I trained in this was so that I could offer it along side Reflexology. During my training the results I had when combining the two therapies was truly amazing, it took relaxation to another level!

*It is important to point out that although Reiki can be an incredibly healing medium when used alone or alongside other complimentary therapies, Reiki is not a cure or alternative to medical treatment.
