Reiki is an ancient method of hands on healing, working on an energetic level. Its origins can be traced back to Tibet and has been rediscovered in Japan by Dr Ushi. ‘Rei’ means universal and ‘ki’ means life force. This natural energetic force that flows through all living beings can sometimes become blocked or unbalanced due to a physical or emotional problem.
A reiki treatment involves the placing of hands on or slightly above a fully clothed body. Ki flows through the hands of the practitioner to the client, aiding in the removal of blockages and toxins, balancing the flow of energy and promoting a sense of nurture and well being. It is a deeply relaxing technique which allows the body to reach a state of calm and awareness.
