So you will most probably have heard of Reiki, it has grown in popularity with the recent wave of self care and wellness movements; but do you actually known what this ancient healing practice is or how it can help you?

Let me start by explaining to you what Reiki is.

Reiki, in essence is a healing system which uses touch therapy and the laying on of hands on the body. This simple yet powerful technique was thought to have been retained by Tibetan Buddhists. In the late 1800s Reiki was rediscovered in Japan by Dr Mikao Usui.

The word Reiki is Japanese and roughly translates to “Universal life force”. This universal life force is a spiritual guided energy. If you practice yoga or have had acupuncture before you will have heard mention of this universal life force, the energy which flows through all living things.This universal energy guides itself with its own wisdom, treating the areas of your body and soul which need it.

The Reiki practitioner treating you is merely a channel through which the reiki flows. We are alive because life-force is flowing through our bodies along pathways called Chakras, Meridians and Nadis, and around us in the energy field which we know as our Aura.

This life force energy is responsive to our thoughts and feelings and nourishes the organs and cells of our bodies.

We become unbalanced when we accept and harbour negative thoughts and feelings about ourselves especially which can cause disruption in our energy flow, and this can impact upon the functioning of one or more of our physical organs.

If you are thinking that Reiki is a religion, it is not, whilst it is spiritual in nature, it is not aligned to any religion. There is nothing you must believe in to use Reiki, merely a willingness to accept its energy.. Reiki is a pure form of healing, it has no adverse effects and is safe for everybody.

How can Reiki help me?

The body has an innate ability to heal itself, and what Reiki does is clear the energy pathways allowing the normal healing process to occur without impediment. Reiki helps to raise the avibrational frequency of the energy field in and around the body , clearing away negativity and realigning the energy pathways. After a Reiki treatment life force energy can flow freely and healthily throughout the body and soul and increasing vitality.

Benefits of Reiki

Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of our energy fields, clearing, realigning and charging them with positive energy.

Reiki can help with:

Relaxation Mental focus

Energy levels Feelings of calmness

Relaxation Relieve physical pain

Accelerate wound healing Improve health

Release emotional wounds Change negative behaviours

Dissolve energy blockages Clear & detoxify negative energies

Increase the vibrational frequency of the body.

Honestly what is not to love about reiki. The quicker Reiki is applied to the area of illness, the faster the healing process will be.


During Reiki treatment a series of hand positions are used to channel energy into your body and aura. Through this process whole body detoxification can occur. Your brainwave patterns are calmed whilst you experience a mediative state similar to sleep. This state aids the healing process, results in physical pain relief and allows your mind to rest.

As healing occurs, symptoms move from the centre of the body towards the surface, from the top of the body downwards and from our majors organs into lesser organs.

For more chronic issues, more regular and frequent treatments may be required as these problems are often deep rooted in our emotions which must be released first to allow healing to take place.

Some people may experience a healing crisis in that their symptoms may increase for a very short time before the blockage is released. This is all part of releasing the old and allowing space for new, positive things to come into your life. Important shifts need to occur ignorer for the body to heal itself.

If you would like to know more about Reiki, or wish to book a treatment do not hesitate to contact me.

I hope to see you soon

Sending love and light.
