Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese word that’s formed from two other words; Rei, which means "God's Wisdom” or the “Higher Power" and Ki, which is "life force energy". So, Reiki actually means “spiritually guided life force energy".  Reiki is, also, the name given to a system of natural healing.

Reiki - Natural Healing

The Reiki system of natural healing evolved in Japan from the experience and dedication of Dr Mikao Usui, who passed away in 1926.

Dr Mikao Usui The Founder of Reiki


After many years of study, research and meditation, Dr Usui developed the Reiki healing system from ancient teachings. He went on to spend the rest of his life practising and teaching Reiki and, today, Reiki continues to be taught in the traditional way, being passed down from Reiki Master to student.

Reiki is a holistic therapy, treating the whole person, including the body, emotions, mind and spirit. People experience and report many beneficial effects through Reiki. Amongst those are wonderful feelings of relaxation and peace, security and well-being – as well as, what seems like quite miraculous results over a wide range of health issues.

In fact, it always produces a positive effect and has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady. Reiki is simple, it’s natural and it’s completely safe as a method of spiritual healing and self-improvement; anyone and everyone can use it.

Reiki, also, works together with any other medical or therapeutic technique, not only to help with the specific condition, but to help relieve any side effects that may occur with more conventional treatments and to aid a quick recovery.

Reiki – What to Expect

One of the great advantages of Reiki healing is that it can be given almost anytime and anywhere because there’s no need for any special equipment and you don’t need to remove any clothing. In practice, I’d get you lying down, comfortably, on my couch, dressed comfortably.

I act as a channel through which the appropriate energy is drawn to meet any need or imbalance in your energy system. Neither of us should use any effort of will or concentration during this process.  We just allow the process to take place over the course of an extremely relaxing hour. The Reiki flows to the areas of need, it soothes pain and supports the body's natural ability to heal itself and, at the same time, it helps to restore balance in your life.

Reiki treats the whole person rather than any specific symptoms and if you’d like to try it for yourself, why not book, now, using the button to your right.
