Reiki (pronounced ray kee) can be understood as 'universal life energy'. It is a form of therapy that involves the flow of this energy through the practitioner to the client. A treatment involves the client laying on a massage couch, fully clothed and covered as the practitioner places their hands in positions along the front and back of the body as corresponding to the body's energy centres. For clients who prefer, the practitioner can hold their hands above the body.
Reiki stimulates the bodies innate healing ability and promotes a profound sense of wellbeing. Deep relaxation, a sense of inner balance and alleviation of symptoms whether physical, emotional or psychological are some of the benefits of this wonderful therapy.
