What is reiki and how can it help ?

Reiki is a form of complementary energy therapy that activates the body’s natural healing process, promoting a sense of calmness and restoring balance on all levels, physical, mental and emotional. Reiki can help to reduce stress, anxiety and depression. It increases feelings of peace and inner calm, and boosts your immune system.

How does it work?

In a face-to-face session, the Reiki treatment is done with the client fully clothed. Throughout the session, the practitioner will have his/her hands in contact with or hovering over the client. Distant sessions can also take place without meeting face-to-face (eg. for people under quarantine/in hospitals, or with animals)

The human body has its own healing wisdom and takes as much or as little as it needs. The practitioner is merely the conduit for the Reiki energy, which is used by the body to help heal, rejuvenate and reinvigorate at an overall level.


Where can it take place?

These are many possible options for a Reiki treatment session.
A dedicated healing space which allows you to lay comfortably on a massage bed amidst peace & tranquility. Home visits can also be arranged, depending on space availability & environmental conditions. Distant healing sessions facilitated over the internet, where clients are guided to find suitable spaces for the session in the comfort of their own homes. Distant Reiki healing is also ideal for pets as it allows for connection without physical contact, which can be stressful for some pets during the initial session (Learn more about Animal Reiki here).
