What is Reiki?


Reiki is not massage, nor is it based on belief, religion or suggestion.  It is a subtle and effective form of energywork using guided life force energy.

Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things.  As a Reiki Practitioner I understand that everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen energy in themselves and help others.  It is believed that a person’s “ki” or energy should be strong and free flowing.  When this is balanced a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health.  When the energy becomes weak or blocked it may lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance.

A Reiki session can help ease tension and stress and can help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional.  A session is pleasant and relaxing and is often utilised for one’s personal wellness.

A typical session
You will rest comfortably on a massage table on your back with only your shoes removed.

Reiki can be performed with the client sitting comfortably in a chair as well.   Unlike massage therapy, no articles of clothing are removed and loose, comfortable clothing is suggested.

A session can either be hands-on, where a I will apply a light touch during the session, or if a client prefers not to be touched I will hold my hands slightly above your body.

A recipient of Reiki might feel a warming sensation or a tingling during the session or nothing at all but sheer blissful relaxation.


The session should be very pleasant, relaxing and invigorating.

Please Note: Reiki is meant to be used as a complement to traditional care or as a personal relaxation or stress reducing tool. It is not a substitute for qualified medical or traditional care.

Reiki is a spiritual healing art with its roots in Japanese origin.


The word Reiki (raykee) comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”.
