What is Reiki?


Reiki is a Japanese word pronounced raykee, which translated means Universal Life Force Energy. Reiki is an ancient system that can be experienced by either "hands on" or by distance (remote) healing. The Reiki treatment encourages physical, mental and emotional healing and spiritual growth. This unique gift of healing is learned by a process of attunements or initiations. A person who has been attuned to Reiki has experienced a very ancient technology for fine tuning the physical and etheric bodies to a higher vibrational level. Also the energy centres, the chakras, are opened to enable a person to channel higher amounts of Reiki energy.

Reiki is drawn through the practitioner who acts as a conduit. The recipient's body will draw the energy to those parts of the body that require it. The practitioner is also being treated as they give the treatment. Energy enters through the practitioner's crown chakra and passes through the upper chakras to the heart and solar plexus chakras and passes out through the arms and hands to the recipient. The process does not drain the practitioner. During this process the whole person is being treated, not the specific area. When this healing force enters the body it is automatically directed to the area where it is needed most.

This is not just supposition. Research workers at Stanford University using sensitive instruments were able to measure the energy flow in the body and verified that the Reiki energy enters the crown chakra (head) and exits through the palm chakras in the hands. Furthermore, Kirlian photography has demonstrated an increase in the emanations from the hands during treatment.

Reiki is not a religion, or a belief system. Reiki will work whether you believe in it or not!

Reiki not only works on the physical level; it can relieve pain, help to regenerate organs and tissue, but also Reiki loosens blocked energy, promotes total relaxation, and works on the mental and emotional levels to re-establish mental well-being and spiritual equilibrium. Reiki is one of the oldest forms of healing known to mankind.

How Reiki can help:


  • Reiki harmonises and balances your energies at all levels - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. All these systems interact and can affect one another.
  • Reiki heals in order of priority, so the issue which brought you here may not be the first thing to see an improvement, but something is being healed. Reiki heals in its own time, and at its own pace - please be patient with yourself.
  • Whatever has occurred now may have been in your system for years and you may need several sessions, so relax and enjoy each one knowing that Reiki can only do good. 
  • REIKI heals the cause rather than just the symptoms, which is more effective. You may experience initial detoxification symptoms - it's a bit like Dynarod unblocking drains!
  • REIKI ACTIVATES YOUR OWN SELF-HEALING MECHANISM.  This is important. All healing is ultimately self-healing. REIKI could be described as having someone's hands on you rather like jump-leads kick-starting your batteries! You may even fall asleep because you are so relaxed.
  • REIKI clears your system of energy blockages. These can arise from habitual negative thought or feeling patterns. Imagine empowering yourself by realising that positive thoughts and feelings can have a beneficial effect on your general well-being.
  • Your INTENTION to heal is of the greatest priority. REIKI is LIGHT at many levels - sometimes a treatment may help you understand yourself and see the solution to any problems more clearly.
  • REIKI treatments are gentle and relaxing, with soothing background music. You only need remove things like shoes, a watch, belt, glasses, contact lenses. Ask your practitioner beforehand to show you the hand positions they will be using.
  • REIKI is above all an experience.
  • No two sessions are alike, enjoy the energy! 


What if I feel worse after a treatment?

Sometimes people experience what is known as a healing crisis. This means that they sometimes feel worse for a short time but this is because the energy acts as a detox on your system, clearing blocked energy channels. This will pass and you will feel much better than you did. Keep in touch with your practitioner if you have any concerns.

If I am a Christian should I have a Reiki treatment? Will it go against my beliefs?

Reiki rises above all religious boundaries. It comes from source, whatever you like to call source, God, Buddha, Allah etc.  Anything that works for the good of people can never do any harm.

Reiki only works for good.
