Reiki is a non-invasive therapy. Your practitioner will use energy flow from their hands to rebalance each of your energy centres. You will remain fully clothed, lying on a massage couch or sitting in a chair. The practitioner will either place their hands on or above your body, using their intuition to guide energy flow. Your whole body may be treated or just specific parts, depending on where imbalances are thought to lie.
Benefits reported by clients include deep relaxation, promoting a calm, peaceful sense of well-being on all levels.
Reiki, meaning ‘universal life energy’, was founded in Japan by Dr Mikao Usui in the late 20th century. It works on the principle that energy, also known as ‘ki’ or ‘chi’, flows through the body via energy centres called ‘chakras’. A balanced flow of energy is said to provide a sense of well-being and spiritual renewal.
