What is Reiki?

Reiki is an alternative energy healing medicine. The healing method is similar to hand healing that has been used for thousands of years.

Reiki is made of vibration, energy and love allowing you to connect to your true self and nature. Reiki is love and an intelligent energy that has created and sustained the universe in perfect order. It is a natural form of therapy using non-invasive gentle touch to promote feelings of wellbeing. This complementary therapy works alongside other medical and therapeutic techniques. Healing may be performed in person or a distant healing. Reiki helps energy move and flow correctly in the body in order to be aligned, grounded and connected with yourself and the universe.


After a healing session the most important thing is self care. Being present, gentle and loving to yourself to allow the integration to help you come back into balance and alignment. You may experience:

Physically release including increased toilet frequency, discomfort or pain, itchiness, tingling, headache or flu like symptoms
Emotional releases through sadness, anger, grief, crying, laughing, or joy. You may be sensitive and tear up easily or feel light, happy and laughing a lot.
Dreaming more or vivid dreams.
A change in energy, feeling calmer, relaxed, free, light, at peace, more aware and present, grounded within yourself and with life in general.
Change in energy levels including exhaustion, feeling high, tired or needing to spend more time in nature.
Heightened senses where you may feel, see, hear or taste things more intensely.

Principles of Reiki

Reiki was founded by Usui Mikao of Japan in the 19th Century. The word Rei means higher universal intelligence or infinite power and Ki means light and energy.

The foundation of Usui’s teachings are influenced by Buddhist teachings. They are spiritual rather than religious being codes of wisdom that when practised daily will embody balance, harmony, wholeness and happiness.

The only moment that really exists that refers to focus on the present and now is for today only:


Do not anger
Do not worry
Be humble
Be honest in your work
Be compassionate to yourself and others
