Reiki - Overview

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of stress reduction. It is a Japanese technique used to increase relaxation. Dr. Mikao Usui rediscovered its use in the early 1900s though it has been practised for centuries. It is based on the concept that an 'unseen life energy' flows through us and having balance in this optimises our own body responses naturally. Reiki can be used alongside other medical or therapeutic techniques (with permission of your doctor if indicated) and may help to optimise other approaches to wellbeing.

For more information on reiki, visit the following web pages: www.reiki.org or www.reikifed.co.uk where you will find articles about the therapy along with recommended reading.

How it may help
It is based on the concept that an 'unseen life energy' flows through us and through relaxation and balance in all things our health and wellbeing may be optimised.

There are no real contraindications for Reiki however, as with all therapies, our therapists will take a full case history to try and ensure that we provide a safe, complete service to our clients.

A typical session
Reiki is administered by the 'laying on of hands' or by the practitioner positioning hands just above the body. You remain fully clothed throughout and the sensation can be one of profound relaxation, temperature variations, tactile sensations or none of these. The balancing experience may be gin a cleansing process on all levels - physical as well as emotional.

The first session takes about 1.5 hours as we need to take a case history and give you the opportunity to ask any questions you might have before you have a reiki treatment.  Subsequent sessions tend to last about an hour.

The session take place with you lying on a couch fully clothed. To the sound of gentle music if you wish, you relax, rest and for some people sleep, while the reiki practitioner uses various hand positions either in contact with your body or just above the body to allow you to rebalance your energy. 

Cost / Number of sessions
The frequency and number of sessions required will depend on the reason for attending.  Some people may require up to five sessions before feeling balanced again while others may only need two or three.  Some people find that once they have reached this level they like to maintain it by attending for a reiki treatment every 4-6 weeks.
