The Usui/Seichem method of Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a system of healing involving the laying of hands. Reiki can be traced back to the healing traditions of ancient Tibet and Egypt, and was rediscovered in the 19th century by Dr Mikao Usui.
Reiki is a word meaning the free passage of universal life force energy. it is a non invasive therapy and is intended to promote Physical, Emotional and Spiritual well-being.
Reiki is a powerful yet gentle healing technique that is easily given and received. This natural life giving energy is all around us. Reiki clears negativity or any blockages in the flow of this energy, which leads to illness or stress. It activates the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
A Reiki treatment is given with the client fully clothed lying on a couch or whilst seated. Your practitioner will gently lay their hands in specific places on or above the body. Personal privacy is always maintained throughout. You may experience warmth, tingling, seeing colours, deep inner peace, a release of emotion, but mostly an experience of feeling of being deeply relaxed and energised. There is no pressure or massage, making this a very gentle therapy, ideal for the very young, the elderly and those recovering from surgery. A course of treatments may be necessary, your therapist will discuss this with you. Reiki can also be used to greatly enhance all other treatments, whether conventional medicine or complementary therapies.
If you wish to be able to give Reiki for yourself and family, First Degree Reiki attunements are available.
