Reiki is a Japanese word meaning “Universal Life Energy”, the energy within and around us all. Reiki is transmitted through the hands of a person who has been more directly linked to the universal life force through an initiation or attunement. The person giving the energy is simply a vessel allowing the energy to pass through them to the client. The energy enters, the person giving, at the crown chakra and passes through their arms and hands to the client. Reiki helps to bring the body into balance so it can heal itself.

During a Reiki session, the practitioner directs energy by placing their hands on or above areas of the client’s body. The client is fully clothed and can be either lying down or seated. A Reiki treatment is a relaxing and often profound experience and the effects can be both subtle and powerful. Reiki is a non-invasive therapy that can be used without fear of any side-effects or overdose.

Reiki can be used to great effect in many ways. Whether suffering from stress or tension, and the associated symptoms, or wishing to improve the quality of relationships at home or work, the beneficial effects of Reiki occur on many levels. Reiki is thought to accelerate the healing of physical problems, balance the emotions, and free us from restrictive mental attitudes.

Reiki can be administered to animals as well as people. Reiki can be used for many things including house blessing and clearings.
