Reiki is a holistic healing therapy that was developed in Japan. Reiki (pronounced RAY KEE) is translated as "universal life-force energy". You may be familiar with the terms Prana or Chi and this is referring to the same energy. As a natural form of healing energy, Reiki can support and enhance other forms of treatment, including conventional medical treatments as well as other complementary therapies.
Reiki is 'holistic' because it affects the whole person - body, mind and spirit - encouraging deep relaxation and a sense of well-being, and assists the physical body's own healing ability to operate more effectively and efficiently.
During a treatment you remain fully clothed and lie on a massage table (or sit if more comfortable). I work using a light resting touch (and can also be performed without direct touch) with the intention of activating and supporting the natural healing processes of the body and restoring physical and emotional well-being.
