What is Reiki?

Reiki is a system of energy healing, originating in Japan in the early 20th century. The word Reiki means universal or spiritual energy. The Reiki practitioner acts as a channel for this high vibration energy to flow through them, and from their hands into the client's body. Reiki works on the energy body, which consists of the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of the self. Blockages in the body's energy system can, over time, lead to disease at the physical level. The Reiki energy works to clear energy blockages, and restore balance. It removes negativity, replacing it with positive, healing energy. Regular Reiki treatments will bring much healing, change and growth, as the Reiki improves the flow of energy and opens the energy centres. If you learn to be a Reiki healer then you will be able to give yourself regular Reiki self-healing.

What will I feel during a Reiki session?


You don't need to remove any clothing during a Reiki treatment, except for your shoes. You will lie on a Reiki bed, and will be covered by a blanket to keep you warm and comfortable. The Reiki practitioner places their hands on, or just above, different areas of your body, while bringing through the Reiki energy. The energy is normally felt as a gentle heat coming from the practitioner's hands, and going into your body. Crystals may also be placed on your body to bring in their healing energy.You may feel some movement of energy in your body as blockages are cleared. A Reiki treatment is a deeply relaxing experience, which will leave you feeling renewed and uplifted. 

Karuna Reiki

Karuna Reiki* is an advanced form of energy healing developed by William Lee Rand and the International Center for Reiki Training. It is also Reiki, but the use of additional high vibration symbols make Karuna Reiki treatments more powerful and effective. You may feel that you go into a deeper relaxation with Karuna Reiki.


Karuna Reiki training courses are available to all Reiki Masters who have been qualified for at least 6 months. (See courses page for more details)
