The word Reiki itself translates to 'universal life energy' and is based on the
belief that life energy flows through all living things.
When this energy becomes disrupted or blocked, it is believed that stress and disease follow.
Reiki is carried out by practitioners who creates a channel between the practitioner
and the universal life energy to help energy flow through to the recipient
Using their hands, Reiki practitioners use this energy to help balance clients' energy.
This method of energy healing promotes relaxation and well-being.
Its aim is to help reduce stress and stimulate the body's natural healing abilities.
The nature of Reiki is holistic, meaning that it addresses the body, mind and spirit.
While Reiki is considered spiritual, it is not a religion.
The method of receiving Reiki is simple.
The recipient remains clothed and lies on a couch or sits on a chair and relaxes.
The practitioner gently places their hands in a series of non-intrusive positions on or near the body.
There is no massage or manipulation.
The whole person is treated rather than specific areas.
Sessions can take 45 minutes to an hour depending on the client’s needs.
Reiki practitioners are not trained in diagnosis and will not predict any specific outcome from treatment.
If people are concerned about their symptoms they should see a doctor.
