What is Reiki?
“Reiki” (ray-key) is Japanese for ‘universal life energy, and is also a word used to describe a system of natural healing, This tradition was founded by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century and evolved as a result of his research, experience and dedication.
We live in a world of energy that nourishes and maintains all living things. When this energy flows uninterrupted there is balance and harmony within and around us, and we experience a sense of well being.
There are many variations of Reiki, but in essence Reiki treatments can help the body emotionally or spiritually. It is a tradition that is open to any belief system.
Reiki treatment is a process that anyone can enjoy in the normal course of their life. Reiki can be used alongside other conventional or complementary treatment and often helps to provide emotional support during recovery.
The practice is taught by Reiki masters / teachers who have trained in the tradition passed on in person from master to student.
What happens in a session?
I will take a short case history and ask you to tell me why you have come for treatment? I will ask you lie on a treatment bed fully clothed and may cover you with a blanket. Soft music will play. I will work on key points in the body in a set sequence. My hands may change temperature as I work. You may feel tingling or warmth as the treatment progresses. A full treatment takes about an hour. I will ask you to drink water at the end of the session and give thanks for the healing. Most people find reiki deeply relaxing and calming.
Cost and booking
Reiki is delivered on a one to one basis and my charges reflect my training and experience. I recommend a block of three treatments and charge £40 an hour. A block of three can be booked for £100 with no refunds for cancelled sessions although dates can be changed with twenty four notice. I recognise the value of reiki for those experiencing long term or terminal illness and will offer reduced rates of £20 an hour and a block of 3 at £50 in these circumstances. Reiki may be covered by your health insurance and if you are claiming then I ask you pay full price.
