WHAT IS REIKI?
Reiki is a safe, gentle hands-on healing technique which uses universal life force energy to balance and harmonize the whole person, physically, mentally and spiritually.
“Rei” (ray) translates to Universal and “Ki” (key) translates as Energy or life force. Eastern Healing Practices have always worked on the philosophy of life being sustained by this Universal / Vital Energy. In Japan it is called ‘Ki’, in China it is ‘Chi’ and India it’s ‘Prana’. Practices such as Yoga, T’ai Chi and Acupuncture all work on the basis of the free flowing movement of this Energy. Blockages and the lack of this vital energy result in Physical, Mental and Spiritual issues.
Although Dr Mikao Usui developed the practice we are familiar with today in the early 20th Century, it is believed that Reiki has roots that date back many thousands of years.
THE BENEFITS OF REIKI
Reiki can help us by encouraging relaxation and bringing balance to Mind, Body and Spirit, whilst promoting the body’s natural ability to heal.
Benefits reported by clients include deep relaxation, a calm, peaceful sense of well-being on all levels, pain relief and higher energy levels.
Reiki encourages and supports positive personal choices, such as improving diet, devoting time for rest or leisure activities and taking more exercise, thus engendering greater inner harmony and balance. It may also reduce the need for alcohol and tobacco. Reiki treatments promote a calmer response to life’s challenges.
Reiki’s gentle energy is easily adapted to most medical conditions and may be used safely by people of all ages, including the newborn, pregnant mothers, surgical patients, the frail and the elderly, in any situation.
Being complementary, Reiki works effectively alongside orthodox healthcare and natural remedies, expanding treatment options.
A TYPICAL TREATMENT
Reiki sessions are held, in a quiet, prepared treatment room.
The treatment itself can be done either sitting or lying down.
A session involves the gentle laying on of hands, either on the body in various places, or within the bio-field that surrounds the body.
During this time you may feel, warmth, tingling, coldness or a number of other sensations but, overall, there will be the complete feeling of relaxation. Some people fall asleep. Each person’s experience is unique to them.
Reiki sessions are £40.00 pp per 1hr session and are held at Riversmeet, Gillingham, Dorset. Concessions are available for those who need them, so please do feel free to give me a call to discuss your situation.

Please note: Reiki is a gentle yet powerful complementary therapy that may be used alongside orthodox healthcare. However, Reiki is not an alternative to conventional medicine and you should always consult your doctor about acute or infectious conditions or problems of an urgent nature.
