WHAT IS Reiki?

Reiki is a non-invasive therapy and is often described as a very relaxing and peaceful treatment. It helps to restore a sense of balance and well-being within the mind and body.

Reiki, means ‘universal life energy’. It was founded in Japan by Dr Mikao Usui in the late 19th century. It works on the principle that energy, also known as ‘ki’ or ‘chi’, flows through the body via energy centres called ‘chakras’. A balanced flow of energy is said to provide a sense of well-being and spiritual renewal.

Those who practice reiki are said to draw upon universal energy, which is then transferred to the client through visualisation and by gently placing their hands on our just above the body.
