What is Reiki?


Reiki (pronounced RAY-KEY) is a Japanese word consisting of two characters, Rei and Ki.

Rei is Japanese for spiritual or sacred

Ki is Japanese for energy.

Reiki is a complimentary healing support system which has been passed along from Reiki Master to student for over a hundred years since it was first re-discovered by Dr Mikao Usui.

Reiki is not a substitute for conventional medicine but it is a very useful tool to clear away negative energy which can predispose illness/injuries. It gets  to the root of the problem and clears it, whether that has manifested itself physically, emotionally or energetically.

Single Reiki treatments cost £25 and last around an hour.


Whether you believe in it or not, your body has an energy system, working in a similar way to the musculoskeletal system, cardiovascular system and the central nervous system. It consists of chakra system which is your body’s main energy powerhouse. When you feel out of balance then its more than likely due to there being an issue here. It is fed by the Meridian system which is a series of channels, like veins/arteries which feed the chakras and move energy around the body.You also have an aura which can get clogged up, like smog in a busy city, which directly affects your physical body and your mind. Energy which sits here for too long will fester and manifest itself physically.

To achieve optimal health and balance it is really important to take care of your Mind, Body and Spirit. Reiki supports this system and clears all that is no longer serving you. It takes a layer off at a time, like the layers of an onion, and heals you at a pace which is perfect for you. If you need gentle clearing, that is what you will recieve. Sometimes however we need to make way for the good stuff by clearing out the bad, and if we are holding on too tightly then Reiki can facilitate a great change, so if you are considering Reiki then be prepared for that. The change is always something that needs to happen and probably would eventually anyway, but having Reiki will make it feel a whole lot easier, so be brave. If something within or around you needs to change then I would put a bet on it that you already know what it is. Reiki puts you back in control, you become the master of your own destiny.

I have my own beliefs, you have yours. A Reiki practitioner will always ‘ live and let live’ We will never push our beliefs onto you, although if you are interested and ask, then we will happily talk to you about them. Reiki is a spiritual practice. Spirituality is not religion. Religion is man made. Spirituality is about you, about what you are capable of becoming, and about the world coming together in a united front. Spirituality is your light, whatever form that takes, in the dark.
