A Boost of Qi to Help you Heal
The practice of Reiki originated in Japan in the 1800’s as an amalgamation of similar energy based techniques used by ancient societies throughout the world. It is rapidly growing in popularity as a broadly accepted complementary therapy in the West and is based, like the other energy based therapies I offer, on the balance and flow of Life Force Energy (referred to Qi in Chinese medicine or Prana in Ayurveda). This energy is limitless and flows in every living thing on our planet. However the flow of it can become blocked in our bodies due to many influences such as pain, repressed emotions, trauma, fear, stress, illness, grief etc. Without this flow our mind/ body, energy system can become out of balance which can lead to physical health conditions and mental/emotional suffering. The purpose of Reiki is to channel this Life Force Energy back into the body and specifically to where it is needed so this boost can resume natural energy flow and aid both emotional healing and healthy cell regeneration.

WHAT HAPPENS IN A REIKI SESSION?Following an initial consultation In which we can discuss what you would like to work on and any health conditions I should know about, the Reiki healing session can begin. Unlike Bio-Energy Therapy, Reiki is a mostly hands on technique and involves the therapist charging the hands then placing them either on specific areas of the body or hovering them above the Chakras (your 7 main energy centres located down the centre line of the head and torso) so you will be sitting or lying throughout the session. A full Reiki session can take up to an hour but this will be dependent on what particularly we are working on. It is unlikely but not impossible, that just one session will be sufficient for long-term results but these are more likely to be achieved after 4 consecutive sessions.(Depending on your needs and personal circumstances I often find that maximum health benefits can be achieved when combining a Reiki session with Bio-Energy or Silent Counselling but this can be discussed in your consultation).
People use Energy Therapies as a natural healing alternative to 21st Century medicines. I have found these to be a complementary therapy for promoting health and healing in my clients.
