Reiki is an ancient, non-intrusive energy therapy which originated in Japan. A hands-on healing technique, the Reiki energy is channeled through the practitioners hands to the client. Reiki enhances the body's own innate ability to heal itself on all levels. It helps restore balance and harmony to the mind, body and spirit. The energy involved in Reiki healing is the universal energy that surrounds all life.
How does it work?
We all have an energy field (aura) surrounding our physical body. As we go through life we place demands on our energy field. During a Reiki treatment this energy field can re-energise. Reiki restores the natural balance of the body, providing deep relaxation and bringing a sense of peace and well-being. It is called universal life energy because it draws upon the healing energy of the universe rather than the energy of the practitioner. The Reiki practitioner has been professionally trained to channel the Reiki energy. Reiki will pass through clothing, bandages, plaster casts or braces so anyone can avail of a Reiki treatment.
