Home >> What Is Reiki?

Reiki is a simple but profound form of energy therapy. It is designed to provide a deep and therapeutic state of relaxation, release stress and promote healing.

How does it work?
The meaning of the word Reiki is- spiritually guided life energy. This means that during a Reiki session it is not the practitioner's energy that is directed to you. Instead a connection is established during the session between the Spiritually Guided Life Energy and the recipient. The practitioner acts only as a channel. This pure high vibrational energy automatically adjusts to suit the recipient so that they receive as much or as little as they need. It can do no harm as any healing taking place is governed by the recipient's own body and the All Knowing Divine Light.

What is a Reiki Session like?
Unlike massage it is not necessary to disrobe in any way for a Reiki Session. The Reiki practitioner directs the energy from the palms of their hands to you. A light touch is sometimes felt or none at all as the practitioner directs the energy to your aura and physical body. As the session begins you will feel a gentle warmth and then a feeling of calm as the energy begins wash over your being. Some people fall into a light dream state. The session normally takes an hour.
