REIKI is the Japanese name for the “Universal Life Energy”.

Reiki Shiki Ryoho, (the Usui System of Natural Healing) or Reiki for short, is a non-invasive treatment which’s purpose is to treat holistically and to restore health and internal balance.

Dr Mikao Usui of Japan rediscovered ancient concepts and as a result brought this system of healing to light.

It is a form of spiritual healing that uses the “Universal Life Energy” (Chi). The practitioners channel the Chi through their hands to the recipient.

Children and the elderly benefit tremendously from receiving this treatment, as it improves their sleep, anxiety or pain.

It is very comfortable to receive the treatment; you relax lying fully clothed on a massage couch, while the therapist holds her hands on or above you. The session may last from 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the treatment required.

I apply this thechnique also as a complement to other therapies and together with relaxation and visualisation techniques, used in meditation.

It can help to induce relaxation and bring body and mind back into balance, thus relieving stress symptoms and promoting wellbeing and self-healing.

It is a safe therapy which can be used alongside conventional medical treatment. Everyone can learn how to use Reiki to treat themselves, family, friends, pets and even plants!

Reiki has no belief system attached to it.
