Benefits of Reiki
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese word for ‘Universal Life Force Energy’. It is a system of natural physical, mental and emotional healing, and spiritual growth. It was founded in Japan by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century. Eastern medicine has always recognised and worked with this energy, which flows through all living things and is vital to well-being. It is known as ‘ki’ in Japan, ‘chi’ in China and ‘prana’ in India. Acupuncture, Tai chi and Yoga are also based on the free-flow of this energy in a person.
How does it work?
Reiki practitioners are attuned to the Reiki energy. Reiki flows through their hands whenever a healing is intended. The reiki energy removes and replaces blockages of stagnant or negative energy to return the body to a state of balance and free-flow of energy.
What to expect
During a treatment, you may lie on a couch or sit on a chair, with a cosy blanket and cushions for extra comfort. You will remain fully clothed and the room will be warm with dimmed lighting and soft background music playing. The therapist will place their hands on a series of non-intrusive positions on the body. As energy flows through the therapist, the client will naturally draw it to the parts of the body that need it. It is safe to have Reiki in combination with orthodox medical care and other complementary therapies. Reiki is suitable for all ages.
Prior to a treatment a full consultation will take place which will enable the therapist to tailor a treatment plan specific to individual needs.

It provides examples of UK hospitals and healthcare establishments using reiki including London University College Hospital, Southampton University Hospital, Wallace Cancer Care, Cambridge and many more. Cancer Research UK state many healthcare professionals accept Reiki as a useful complementary therapy which may help lower stress, promote relaxation and reduce pain.
