What is Reiki?
Reiki is a natural form of healing founded by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century. The word “Reiki” comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki is a powerful yet gentle and nurturing form of healing on a physical mental and spiritual level in which energy flows from the practitioner’s hands into the client.
During a treatment the client remains fully clothed and lies on a couch or sits on a chair and relaxes. The practitioner gently places their hands in a series of positions on or near the body. You may experience various sensations such as heat, coolness, tingling, pins-and-needles, itchiness, sleepiness or some people feel no sensations at all.
Reiki can be used alongside other conventional or complementary treatment and often helps to provide emotional support during recovery. If people are concerned about their symptoms they should see a doctor.

How much Reiki would I need?
A single session often brings beneficial results and can be enough in many cases. For long term or chronic conditions a series of sessions might be needed. It is best to discuss with your practitioner on individual needs. Some clients maintain a monthly session to keep “topped up”.
Distance or virtual healing
Reiki can be received and just as beneficial distantly. No matter how far away. Reiki can be given to people who are isolated or too sick to attend in person giving everyone a chance to be healed. This means that the recipient doesn’t have to be in the room and still have the opportunity of alleviating any ongoing physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual needs at a time and in their own place as and when is needed.
