What is Reiki?
Reiki is a form of hands on energy healing using light touch in a non-invasive way. Japanese in origin, 'Rei' stands for 'Universal' and 'Ki' stands for 'Life Force Energy' so together Reiki simply means 'Universal Life Force Energy'. It is this beautiful energy that the practitioner connects to and directs into the clients body, awakening the body’s natural healing response and promoting self-healing on many levels. Reiki treats the whole person by focusing on the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies in our auric field, bringing balance back to your body, your mind and your spirit! It is painless, non-manipulative, non-invasive and does not interfere with any form of medical treatment.
After a treatment most clients report beneficial effects that include deep relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results. As a complimentary therapy to conventional medicine Reiki can also improve the results of medical treatments, shortening recovery times and eliminating negative side effects.
As a form of energy therapy, Reiki is fast becoming a modality of interest and is used by chiropractors, medical doctors, psychotherapists, psychologists and hypnotherapists. It is also being implemented into many hospitals, especially in Palliative care.

What happens in a Reiki Session?
We begin by having a chat to determine your needs and symptoms then while you lay on my treatment table fully clothed I will scan your outer energy body to determine any areas of imbalance. While you lay comfortably relaxing I will then lightly place my hands over each of your Chakras (Energy Centres) or areas of concern while directing healing energy into each area, restoring balance and energy flow to promote optimal healing. We will then have a talk at the end of the session to discuss which areas needed work, what the cause could be along with answering any questions you may have. Sessions also include the use of chakra crystals, essential oil aura cleansing sprays, relaxation music a quick oracle card reading at the end for further insight.
What does a Reiki treatment feel like?
What one experiences during a Reiki treatment varies from person to person, however feelings of deep relaxation are usually felt by all. In addition, many feel a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and surrounds them. As the Reiki energy encourages us to let go of all tension, anxiety, fear or other negative feelings, a state of peace and wellbeing is experienced. Some people drift off to sleep, have visions and other mystical experiences or feel energy movement throughout the body. At the end of the treatment, one usually feels refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.
What can be treated with Reiki?
Reiki has had a positive affect on all forms of illness and negative conditions. This includes minor things like head or stomach aches, injuries, colds, flu, tension and anxiety as well as serious illness like heart disease, cancer, etc. The side effects of regular medical treatments have also been reduced or eliminated. This includes the negative effects of chemotherapy, post-operative pain and depression as well as improving the healing rate and reducing recovery time. Reiki always helps and in some cases people have experienced complete healings which have been confirmed by medical tests before and after the Reiki treatments. However, while some have experienced miracles, they cannot be guaranteed. Stress reduction or deep relaxation with some improvement in ones physical and psychological condition are what most experience.
Are there any side effects of a Reiki Treatment?
Most of the time a person will feel relaxed and uplifted by a Reiki treatment. However, sometimes a person will have what is called a healing crisis. As a person’s vibration goes up, toxins that have been stored in the body will be released into the blood stream to be filtered by the liver and kidneys and removed from the system. When this happens, sometimes a person can get a headache or stomach ache or feel weak. If this happens, it is a good idea to drink more water, eat lighter meals and get more rest. The body is cleansing as part of the healing process so this is a good sign.
Do I need to stop seeing my doctor or psychologist to receive a Reiki Treatment?
No. Reiki works in conjunction with regular medical or psychological treatment. If you have a medical or psychological condition, it is recommended that you see a licensed health care professional in addition to receiving Reiki treatments. Reiki energy works in harmony with all other forms of healing, including drugs, surgery, psychological care or any other method of alternative care and will improve the results.
How many Reiki Sessions will I need?
It all depends on what your goal is and everyone is different. If you are just looking for relaxation this can be achieved in 1 session. If you are looking for pain or anxiety relief 1 session will do in some cases and others may take a few sessions. It will all depend on the root cause of the issue. Some people book just once every few months, others once a week, month or fortnight. For those on a journey to self development who are seeking deep and lasting life changes or those recovering from ongoing illness, treatment or surgeries, a regular Reiki Session will be a great support. Discounts are offered for 5 and 10 session packages.
