What is Reiki?
Reiki is an ancient form of healing. It is very relaxing and is good for restoring the balance of the mind, body and spirit.
In Japanese, Rei = universal and Ki = energy. Reiki is therefore quite simply defined as 'universal energy'.
Reiki works by channelling this universal energy by placing hands-on or hands-over a person.
Reiki may help with almost any condition, particularly those associated with our modern lifestyles such as:
- Insomnia / poor sleep patterns
Reiki Treatment - What to Expect
A Reiki treatment session is usually very gentle and relaxing.
After going through your medical history, you will be asked to lie on a treatment couch or sit in a chair if you prefer.
If you have a specific problem, I may concentrate soley on that problem, placing my hands directly on or over the area concerned.
For a more holistic session, there are between seven - twelve hand postions for a basic Reiki treatment and I will decide which positions are the most appropriate for your needs. Most treatments will include some form of hands-on or hands-over the head, the throat, the ribs, the abdomen and the pelvis. Each position will be held for between three - five minutes, during which you may feel heat, tingling or a cold breeze. You may feel nothing at all. Sometimes I will scan my hands over you which helps me to detect if you have any imbalances or blocked energies.
Clients report feeling very relaxed during a session and many often fall asleep.
Patients report that they usually sleep well after their Reiki sessions.

How many sessions do I need?
You can never have too much Reiki!
However, one session may be enough for you if it's just a case of restoring a little balance in your life. Three - four sessions is usually a good number to see a noticeable improvement. Daily sessions for one week may benefit some clients with an acute, intense problem. Those with chronic conditions may need more sessions over a longer period of time.
I also do Reiki on animals including dogs, cats and horses and Reiki by distance.
