Reiki is energy. The second part of the word, “Ki”, refers to life-force energy, and you may have heard of other versions of this word from other languages, such as “Chi” or “Qi” in Chinese (as in Tai Chi or Qi Gong), or “Prana” from India, where it is a central concept in Yoga and Ayurveda. These words all signify a vital, life sustaining energy which is believed to flow throughout the human body (and through all living things) through a network of fine subtle channels called meridians, as well as flowing outside the physical body as an energy field called an aura. This “Ki” is an energy which operates at high vibrations and fast frequencies which makes it difficult to see, but it can be detected by various forms of electro-magnetic equipment, and identifying blockages in its flow has been used for centuries in Acupuncture. Indeed, most complementary and alternative therapies work at this energetic level, because actually the physical body is also energy, but vibrating at a slower frequency which means it is denser, and therefore visible matter.
Reiki, as a spiritual energy, operates at an even higher and faster vibration, so it can move through all parts of the human energy field to break through energetic blockages and promote healing. The source of this high spiritual energy can be described in various ways, depending upon what you are happy to accept – God, the Source, the All-that-is, the Universe – or you can think of it as part of your Soul or Spirit or Higher Self that you can access to help you.
Reiki is a safe, gentle, non-intrusive hands on healing technique. It is a holistic system for balancing, healing and harmonising all aspects of the person - body, mind, emotions and spirit.

Reiki balances and heals on the four levels described below, and as it flows through it adjusts to the recipient so that each person receives exactly what they need at that time.
Reiki supports and accelerates your body's own natural ability to heal itself, usually alleviating pain and relieving other symptoms, whilst helping the body to rid itself of poisons and toxins. It balances and harmonises the whole energy field, promoting a sense of wholeness, a state of positive wellness and an overall feeling of well-being, and also helps you develop greater awareness of your body's real needs, such as better nutrition or more exercise.
Reiki inspires you to examine your emotional responses, encouraging you to let go of negative emotions such as anger or resentment, and promoting the qualities of loving, caring, sharing, trusting, and good will. It can also help you to channel emotional energy into creativity.
Reiki leads to a state of deep relaxation, with the consequent release of stress and tension. It allows you to let go of negative thoughts, concepts and attitudes, replacing them with positivity, peace and serenity. It can also enhance your intuitive abilities and encourages you to pursue your personal potential through greater insight and self awareness.
Spiritual - Your capacity to love yourself and others unconditionally:
Reiki helps you to accept and love your whole self, and fosters a non-judgemental approach to humankind, allowing you to accept every person as a beautiful and pure soul energy as well as a human being. It promotes the qualities of love, compassion, understanding and acceptance, and encourages you on your individual path towards personal growth and spiritual development. - Source Reiki for life by Penelope Quest.
Allow an extra 10 minutes for your first appointment to allow you to fill in some health forms and to ask any questions you may have. Wear comfortable clothes. You will have your treatment fully clothed but without shoes or jackets. You may want to remove any chunky jewellery or belts as you want to be as comfortable as possible. You will start lying on your back. I will apply light pressure hand movements in specific areas starting with the crown on the top of your head all the way to your feet. No personal areas such as breasts or genitals will be touched. You will then be asked to roll onto your front, either with head to the side or through the massage face hole. However you are most comfortable. I will then continue the treatment on your back. During treatment you may experience sensations of warmth, heat or tingling where my hands are placed, or sense energy flowing around your body. You may hear your tummy rumble, you may get so relaxed you fall asleep, you may feel an emotional release and feel the need to cry or laugh. This is all absolutely normal and you do not need to feel embarrased.
