Reiki is an ancient system of healing, rediscovered in the 19th century by Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese monk, who spent his life practising and teaching his method of natural healing, which involved attunement to the Reiki energy and the laying on of hands. Reiki is now widely accessible across the world. “Reiki” means Universal Life Force Energy – it is the life force that flows through all living things. It can be used by anyone has received Reiki attunements (initiations), to heal themselves and others or can be given to help heal plants, animals or situations on a family, local or global level.
Reiki is a relaxation and healing technique to learn how to channel universal healing energy effectively. We all have this energy available to us but we can give away too much energy to unwanted negative thoughts, negative emotions, etc. Your energy can become blocked, drained and low which sometimes leaves you feeling down, unable to deal with situations effectively and susceptible to stress. Low energy as we all know may eventually lead to short or long term illness and dis-ease in the physical body if it is not addressed.
Receiving a Reiki attunement, practising self healing techniques and discovering more about energy on the course can help you hugely in managing stress and recognising your negative patterns in terms of stress relief. Practising Reiki can help open you up to become a channel to bring this strong energy to your family, friends, yourself and others and help you on the road to recovery, increased health and well being emotionally, mentally and spiritually!
People who have learnt Reiki act as channels through which this healing energy flows. The energy flows to the areas where it is most needed and it is commonly experienced as feelings of heat, tingling or love. During a Reiki session, you remain fully clothed usually either lying on a couch or seated. Energy is passed into your physical body and also in the energy field around the body to where the healing is needed for optimum results.

I have just had an amazing session of Reiki with Sam - it was so calming. Sam is so lovely, we talked lots beforehand which made me feel at ease and comfortable. The treatment room is so peaceful / relaxing! I honestly can’t wait to go back
