Reiki means universal life energy and is an ancient healing system rediscovered by Mikao Usui, a Japanese buddhist monk. It is a gentle non-invasive treatment involving the laying on of hands over the body, facilitating the flow of universal life energy through me to you.
Reiki aids deep relaxation and is particularly helpful if you’re experiencing physical and emotional difficulties. Reiki can bring feelings of peace, comfort, acceptance, an ability to cope better with life’s challenges and a more positive outlook.
There are no known contra-indications for Reiki. It can be given to people of all ages, including pregnant women, children, and animals.
“Reiki is love, love is wholeness, wholeness is balance, balance is well being, well being is freedom from disease” – Mikao Usui
What to Expect
Reiki is offered fully clothed on a massage table or a chair. Hands are laid on or off the body depending on your preference.
During a Reiki treatment you may feel warmth, tingling, you may see colours and light, emotions may arise and it can be a very deep and profound experience. However, for some, you may feel very little except deep relaxation.
After Care Advice
Drink plenty of water as the body will be detoxing and avoid alcohol and caffeine for the next 24 hours.
Spend some time in stillness and/or in nature and be aware of anything that may come up for you and just allow whatever it is thats arisen, some space.
