Reiki is a safe and soothing treatment that can be: ~ Comforting when life is tough The relaxing nature of Reiki can be very helpful to people especially at difficult times in our lives. We can all feel overwhelmed or disconnected, sometimes there is a real sense of isolation, both emotionally and spiritually. Reiki treatments can bring feelings of peace, centeredness and an ability to cope better with the challenges of life. Reiki can be beneficial in circumstances that are short term, but can also support people dealing with long-standing conditions, helping to bring comfort, acceptance and a more positive outlook. ~ Supportive during pregnancy Reiki can be wonderful for pregnant women. Treatments can be very relaxing and enjoyable for the mother. ~ Calming for children Children usually love Reiki. The length of a session is often shorter than it would be for an adult. ~ Reassuring for animals Animals also respond well to Reiki, they too seem to find it relaxing and soothing ~ Helpful at the end of life In such cases Reiki can be a great comfort, helping to promote a sense of peace and acceptance for the dying and their families.

The method of receiving Reiki is simple. The recipient remains clothed and lies on a couch or sits on a chair and relaxes. The practitioner gently places their hands in a series of non-intrusive positions on or near the body. There is no massage or manipulation. The whole person is treated rather than specific areas. Sessions can take 45 minutes to an hour-and-a-half, depending on the clients needs. Reiki practitioners are not trained in diagnosis and will not predict any specific outcome from treatment. If people are concerned about their symptoms they should see a doctor.

Each person experiences Reiki differently depending on their individual needs at the time. Clients may or may not feel sensations during a Reiki treatment. Benefits reported by recipients include deep relaxation promoting a calm, peaceful sense of well being on all levels. Some people feel sensations of heat, tingling, or experience seeing colours, whilst others can have an emotional response, indicating that shifts are taking place, allowing harmony to be restored.
