Reiki is a form of hands-on healing. Reiki means 'universal life force energy' and a reiki practitioner channels this energy and directs it to the person receiving the treatment. The key theory behind reiki is that the healing energy will go wherever it needs to go and will promote healing on an emotional, mental, physical or spiritual level.
What to expect at a reiki treatment
During a reiki treatment the reiki practitioner will place their hands on or above you in a number of positions from the head to the feet. As the hands are placed, the reiki energy will begin to flow. Each position is held for about 5 minutes but some places may need more time and attention; some places less.
You may feel the flow of energy as a tingling, a warmth, a coolness, or even a colour. Experience varies from person to person, but most people feel a sense of deep relaxation.
Reiki with Reflexology
I think that reiki and reflexology go really well together and that using reiki as part of a reflexology treatment really adds to the benefits and the feeling of relaxation. If you choose a combined treatment it will follow the same format as a reflexology treatment but with the additional benefits of reiki. It is priced as a single one hour treatment - so why not give it a try!
Reiki with other therapies
Reiki is a very safe treatment and can be used for those at any life stage, alongside other treatments and medical conditions. However, it is always important to inform any other health care practitioner or complementary therapist that you are having Reiki, and to inform me of any medical conditions or care that you're receiving.
