What is Reiki?
Reiki (ray-key) translated from Japanese means ‘universal life force energy’ and is the name given to a spiritual system of natural healing that originated in Japan. Reiki uses non-invasive, gentle touch and can support the body’s innate healing abilities, balance energy levels and promote well-being. 

Reiki works on all levels of body, mind and spirit. It helps to open our awareness to the areas we need to work through and heal in order to bring our lives into balance and maintain health, harmony and vitality.

How can Reiki help me? 
Reiki helps your body shift out of fight/flight mode to the restorative and healing rest/digest mode. Reiki helps to rebalance your energy system on both physical and emotional levels. Benefits may include: 

• Enhanced ability to relax
• Increased energy levels
• Improved quality of sleep • Faster recovery from setbacks or illness
• Enhanced clarity of mind
• Reduced stress and anxiety
• Reduced pain
• Complements and supports other therapies

How does Reiki fit with western medicine?
 Reiki is a complementary therapy that works alongside other medical and therapeutic techniques. Reiki does not replace conventional medicine. Reiki will support and enhance the care you are receiving from your GP or other qualified medical/health practitioner. Continue with any treatments or medications already prescribed and consult your health professional for ongoing medical care. 

What happens during a Reiki treatment? 
You lie fully clothed (or sit if preferred), covered with a light cloth or cosy throw. You only need to remove your shoes. The protocol of Reiki hand positions is followed, with hands resting gently on or just above the body – breast & genital areas are not touched. You may feel sensations near where the hands are positioned or in other parts of the body. These could be heat, tingling, coolness, ‘rumblings’ or other sensations. You may feel very little, you may feel a lot. Responses vary, yet all are energy related – e.g. ‘I feel so deeply peaceful and relaxed’ or ‘I’m so energised!’ or ‘I feel as if something has shifted’.
