What is Reiki?

Reiki is a form of relaxing ‘hands-on’ healing originating from Japan that channels energy flow to restore harmony and balance to the mind and body supporting our natural ability to heal both physically and emotionally.

What can you expect from a Reiki Session?

During a Reiki session you will remain fully clothed, shoes, watch and glasses will need to be removed. Treatment can be given lying down on a massage table or seated in a chair or wheelchair. Please advise of any health condition affecting your ability to lie flat on your back or front. The Reiki practitioner places their hands over, or directly touching the patient’s body in various positions, starting at the crown of the head. The Reiki energy is received by the practitioner and flows through their hands to the recipient. Distance Reiki healing can also be given.

How long does a Reiki treatment last?

Usually between 30 and 60 minutes.

How many treatments are needed?

This varies from person to person as no two cases are alike. Some people might improve after 1 session and other may need more.

What does a Reiki treatment feel like?

This again varies from person to person. Some may feel heat, cold, tingling or emotional release (laughing or crying). Feelings of deep relaxation are usually felt by everyone. These can also be felt for a couple of days after the Reiki session.
