What is Reiki?

Reiki is the Japanese word that literally means “universal life force energy” and is pronounced “ray- key”. Channelled through the practitioner hands to the receiver, this universal energy works on all levels of being: mind, body, emotion and spirit, balancing and harmonising them to their pure state.

Treatments with Reiki has shown to reduce stress, encouraging relaxation and bringing balance within the body thus helping to cope with all life situations. Reiki can be safely used in conjunction with conventional medicine and/or other complementary therapies and helps any conditions or ailment with very positive efect on the immune system, producing a total feeling of well-being.

Reiki is a natural healing therapy developed in the early part of the 20th century by Mikao Usui in Japan. It has shown to stimulate gently yet deeply the body's natural ability to heal itself. As a non- body work healing system, Reiki is naturally a safe and non-invasive treatment, adapted to anyone from new born babies to the elderly, animals and all other living being. The practice of Reiki has been self-regulated and approved by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) acquiring National Occupational Standards and is available within the NHS as a complementary therapy.

How is a session carried out

I will begin the flow of energy by gently placing my hands on your abdomen. I will then go through a series of hand positions on different energy point on both sides of your body, sometimes my hands in contact with you, sometimes just above your body.

This allow the experience to be non- invasive and comfortable. Each position will last a couple of minutes and you may fell heat or cold coming from my hands, which is all part of the calming and soothing experience.

When the treatment is fnished please take the time to come back into the room and safely come of the couch whilst I will bring you some water. You have now experienced the extraordinary power of Reiki which cannot be expressed with word! We will then have some feedback from your experience and present wellbeing.

Before your first Reiki treatment commences, we will briefy go through your lifestyle and medical history. It will give me a general picture of your health condition and/or medication at the current time and tell me why you came for Reiki. All information shared here is strictly confidential. After this introduction, I will explain to you how the treatment will be carried out if it is the first time for you and I will answer any questions you may have. You will then be asked to remove your shoes and lie down on the couch. If, for any reason it is not comfortable or possible for you, I will be pleased to treat you sitting in a chair. It is good to consider wearing loose comfortable clothing for you to be cosy as the treatment lasts an 45min. I have plenty of cushions and blankets so please do not hesitate to express your needs for comfort even during the treatment session, we are here for you to relax. When comfortable and ready, you will be asked to close your eyes and relax into the experience.

How many sessions do I need?

There is no set number of sessions for specifc conditions or profle, everybody being diferent, so listen to yourself for what is the best. Some people fell that after a few sessions everything they came for beaded up, other keep coming for monthly relaxation and balancing time.

The wonderful thing about Reiki is that it will always fow towards the aspect of yourself that needs the most and it will fow up to the adequate quantity, like a phone's battery that needs charging and stops when full. The fow of Reiki can be felt as heat, cold or tingling from the practitioner's hands, or nothing at all which is OK too. The experience of Reiki is diferent for everybody and whether or not you feel it does not make it more efective or intense so just relax and enjoy the clarity of mind and harmony that it brings. Emotions, images, lights or colours can emerge in order to be gently processed and released. Be open to what is coming your way and let it go, you will fnd that it is often linked to situations in your life that will naturally unfold in favour of the treatment clearing blockages. Enjoy!

After care

I really recommend you to have a free schedule after a Reiki session in order to process and enjoy this nice feeling of relaxation. Drink plenty of water and avoid the use of drugs, alcohol or intoxicants. It will help your body to release toxins or unwanted energy.

Most people feel very relaxed and balanced with a nice clarity of mind. Others feel energised and yet very grounded. Occasionally the body might want to release toxins or old energies not needed any more and this can be expressed through cold, tiredness or emotional release. Be there for yourself without judgement and let it go, these symptoms will only last briefy. Remember, you always take from Reiki what is the best for you at the time. For further advice or reassurance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

After Care Recommendation

Are there any side effects?

As mentioned above, some people may experience a healing reaction, which is the best way for your body to release old energies and reset to total harmony. Apart from that, Reiki has shown only positive efect and it is why it is so powerful.
