Reiki

A healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being”.

Reiki

Reiki is a gentle yet effective method of healing, which is acknowledged to be deeply relaxing, and helpful for many states of being that may be detrimental to your overall health.

Reiki supports orthodox medicine or can be used alone but is not a replacement for traditional medication or treatments. It has been suggested that in years to come it may be known as energy medicine based on scientifically measurable energy emitted from the healer’s hands.

Reiki is activated by intention and requires practitioners to calm their minds and thus open up their communication channels to understand where healing is most required on the body and for how long to caringly help the person or animal concerned.

A Reiki session provides a warm, peaceful space in which to relax completely, knowing the treatment does not harm or have side effects. It can increase a sense of wellbeing, improve the ability to sleep well, and provide a level of relaxation difficult to find in today’s modern and stressful world.

What happens during a Reiki treatment?

Step 1 – Arrival & Consultation

The environment is important to the Reiki. The room will be warm and peaceful with careful consideration given to the lighting, soft music and essential oils diffused to add to the experience.

On the first visit clients complete a consultation, where they are asked a number of questions concerning their contact details. The Therapist will take a short case history prior to discussing treatment options. A treatment plan will be discussed and agreed with you, and reviewed as necessary. This will always be subject to your own preferences, and can be changed at any time in line with progress.

Step 2 – The Treatment

A Reiki treatment is non-diagnostic, non-interventionist, non-manipulative and no pressure is applied.

A session is usually carried out with the recipient lying down or sitting, in a comfortable and peaceful environment. There is no need to remove any clothing as Reiki energy passes easily through all materials, including plaster casts.

The Practitioner places their hands gently on or over the body; there is no massage or manipulation. Reiki can also be given over a distance. Reiki may be experienced as a flow of energy, mild tingling, warmth, coolness, other sensations, or nothing at all.

Length of Reiki sessions may vary, but are usually half to one hour in duration.

Step 3 – Finishing Up & Aftercare

The therapist will finish the treatment and quietly check that the client is comfortable and offer a glass of water. The client will be asked to take their time getting up and the therapist will discuss how the treatment went.
