Whether one is suffering from stress or tension, and the many symptoms associated with this, or wishing to improve the quality of relationships at home or work, the beneficial effects of Reiki occur on many levels.Reiki can accelerate the healing of physical problems, balance the emotions, and free us from restrictive mental attitudes. It may also provide a closer connection with inner wisdom. Reiki encourages and supports positive personal change such as improving the diet, having more rest, exercise or leisure time, and may reduce the need for alcohol and tobacco.

It may be used with confidence alongside conventional medication or natural remedies because it acts in a complementary way.

What Happens During A Session?

A session is usually carried out with the client lying down or sitting in a comfortable and peaceful environment. There is no need to remove any clothing.The practitioner places their hands gently, in a series of positions, on or over the body. The client's system automatically draws in only as much Reiki as is needed, using it in whatever way is most appropriate at the time, Reiki may be felt as a flow of energy, mild tingling, warmth, coolness, other sensations, or nothing at all. Reiki is deeply relaxing, eases stress, and has a calming effect.Treatment is enhanced if one can rest for a while afterwards and drink plenty of water, to help the body detox. Be responsive to the needs of your body, e.g. resting if tired, and allow the energy to continue its work after the session ends. The beneficial effects may be felt for several days.

How Often Do I Need To Have A Treatment?

Although even one Reiki session can make a difference, it is usually more effective to have a course of regular treatments. This may be weekly, fortnightly or monthly depending on the needs of the individual.
A treatment plan will be discussed with you, and reviewed as necessary. This will always be subject to your own preferences, and can be changed at any time according to progress.


Reiki does not take the place of conventional medicine. Always consult a GP for an acute or infectious condition, and problems of urgent concern. Reiki is a complementary therapy that works. effectively alongside orthodox healthcare, so expanding treatment options.

Reiki is being used in GP surgeries, hospices, cancer support groups, post-operative recovery, drug rehabilitation, prisons, HIV / AIDS centres, and care of the elderly.
