Reiki is a form of complementary therapy related to energy healing. Reiki works with the energy fields surrounding the human body and involves the movement of universal energy from the practitioner’s palms to the client.
This type of healing practice aims to help the flow of energy through the body and remove such ‘blockages’, similarly to the principles applied through acupuncture or acupressure.
This school of practice believe that improving the flow of energy around the body may induce deep relaxation, restore balance, reduce stress and anxiety and even support patients suffering with depression.
Reiki experts point out that although this energy is not measurable with modern scientific techniques, many patients who ‘tune into it’ can feel it.

It is important to reiterate that Reiki should never take the place of medical treatments and all complimentary treatments should be taken under the advice and care of your doctor.
The gentle , non- invasive nature of Reiki therapy often has a powerfully soothing and deeply relaxing effect on the patient’s over all well-being.
The purpose of your Reiki session is to reinstate the balance and flow of vital energy through the body. Your Reiki treatment involves your therapist channelling energy through their hands and attuning it to the receiver’s body; enhancing the patient’s natural ability to heal itself.
Although perhaps a less ‘mainstream’ therapy, Reiki is much-loved and highly respected by those who practice it and by those who receive it.
Treatment is very safe and can by used alongside conventional medical treatments. However, you should tell your practitioner if you are having any other medical treatments.
We advise our patients to rest after a reiki treatment and drink lots of water.
