natural treatment using reiki energy and crystals to heal and restore balance to the body.
What is Reiki?
Many Eastern Philosophies believe in the presence of a "vital energy" which is all around us
and is present in every living thing. This is known as "chi" in China, "prana" in India and "ki"
in Japan, but is all exactly the same energy. "Reiki" is actually two Japanese words - "Rei"
means God, Creator or Spirit and "Ki" means energy or power. Reiki is not connected with any religion, nor does it depend on any belief system or faith. Reiki attunements merely
allow a person to access and channel this energy for healing. Gentle, non invasive and very
soothing, Reiki can be used to help with all kinds of physical and emotional conditions.
Dr Mikao Usui
Dr Usui was a minister and teacher at a Christian school for boys in Kyoto, Japan in the second half of the 19th
Century. He was very interested in natural healing and undertook a 21 day retreat of fasting and meditation in the mountains.
It was during this time that he experienced visions and miracles that led him to Reiki as we know it today. Usui
Reiki is still taught in a traditional way and practitioners undertake a 21 day cleansing process after each
attunement in keeping with the experiences of Dr Usui.
Reiki with Crystals
Crystals also have their own energy and can be used for healing. A selection of crystals can be
placed on and around the body during a Reiki treatment to enhance the treatment and
help to balance the body's natural energy centres, or chakras. The choice of crystals is
very personal and they are chosen for the client at the time of the treatment.
What Can I Expect From A Treatment?
A Reiki treatment usually takes place with the client lying down on a massage table, fully
clothed and warm and comfortable. The practitioner places their hands on or over the
body in different positions corresponding to the body's energy centres. Sometimes
warmth or tingling can be felt, which is completely normal. The treatment takes about an hour and many clients fall asleep during this deeply relaxing and soothing treatment.
Who Will Benefit from Reiki?
Reiki is very safe and suitable for everyone, including the very young, the elderly, pregnant ladies and those recovering from surgery. Conditions
which may benefit include:
Menstrual/Menopausal Problems Pregnancy Headaches/Migraine/Cluster Headaches
ME (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome)
Reiki is not just a treatment to have if feeling unwell, if you are healthy then Reiki will help you to stay that way, balancing Mind, Body and Spirit. Some clients have a regular treatment purely for deep relaxation.
