What is REIKI?

The name Reiki, pronounced ''Ray-key'', comes from the Japanese words ''rei'' meaning spirit, and ''ki'' meaning energy. It is usually translated as ''universal life energy”. Reiki is an ancient form of energy healing which helps to heal and harmonise the body, mind and spirit.

The history of Reiki

Reiki is an ancient form of healing. It was rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui of Kyoto, Japan towards the end of the 19th Century. Dr. Usui had spent many years on a quest for the secret of the ancient healing knowledge. He went to a mountain top in Japan and underwent a 21 day purification, fasting and meditating at the end of which he received enlightenment and the power of healing. He came down from the mountain and spent the rest of his life practicing and teaching what we know as Reiki.

Karuna Reiki®

The Karuna Reiki® system was developed by William Lee Rand founder of the International Center for Reiki Training.

Karuna Reiki® is a system of higher frequency Reiki that seems much more definite and focused than that of the Usui system. Karuna Reiki® may be used in addition to the energy of Usui Reiki rather than an alternative to it, and may give rise to a more intuitive and much deeper level of healing. The word karuna is used in Hinduism, Buddhism and Zen and translates as ‘compassionate action’.


What happens during a treatment?


The client lies down fully clothed onto a massage couch and the Reiki energy is transferred by the gentle placing of hands on the body. The experience of receiving this energy leaves you deeply relaxed with a sense of Inner Peace.  It works on all levels releasing blocked energies, and cleansing the body of toxins, creating a state of balance and harmony. Reiki energy goes to the deeper levels of a persons being, where many illnesses have their origins. It works wherever the recipient needs it most, releasing blocked energies, cleansing the body of toxins, relieving stress, alleviating pain and working to re-create the natural state of balance. Reiki reinforces the client’s ability to take responsibility for their life, and also helps them to make the necessary changes in attitude and lifestyle to promote a happier and healthier life.

During a treatment Reiki will be received over the whole body, and some feelings that may be experienced include feelings of heat, tingling and coolness in the area being treated. As the energy comes into balance, stress and tension are released and in their place a deep sense of relaxation develops and a tremendous feeling of well-being is established. Don't be surprised if you fall asleep.

What are the Benefits?


Reiki is both powerful and gentle, and may help promote the body’s own healing process in virtually every known illness or injury.  However anyone with a serious medical problem should only receive Reiki under medical supervision. Reiki is often used alongside conventional care in hospices, hospitals and in other health care settings. Reiki should not be used in place of conventional medical care, always consult your GP or a health care professional for medical attention and advice. Due to the effects of the deep relaxation that can be achieved through Reiki, it may give rise to the following benefits:
