What is Reiki and what does it do?
Reiki is an intensely relaxing therapy that works on the whole body. Physically, mentally and emotionally. Reiki (Rei -life, Ki – energy) literally means universal life energy and promotes total well-being and sense of peace and serenity.
It’s particularly beneficial for those struggling with Anxiety, Depression and Stress but is also beneficial for physical problems and helping emotional troubles.
As a Reiki practitioner the Reiki energy is channelled through me to you, the client and naturally travels to where it is needed in the body. It’s amazing for helping to calm the mind slowing down all the whizzing thoughts we get in such a busy world.
Reiki reduces stress and facilitates deep relaxation calming the central nervous system and triggering the body’s natural healing abilities.
Some of the main benefits of Reiki:
- Creates deep relaxation and aids the body to release stress and tension
- Helps release emotional trauma held in the body
- Soothes digestion
- Helps improve sleep
- Help to alleviate symptoms of acute illness or injury
- Boosts the immune system
- Reduces stress and anxiety
What happens in a treatment?
On your initial treatment you’ll have a short consultation where we’ll chat through the short client registration document you’ll fill in online at the time of booking, and what you’d like to get from your treatment.
During the Reiki treatment I use incense, candles and soft music to create a dreamy environment for your treatment.
I’ll make sure you’re comfortable on the massage table. I have various cushions and bolsters and cosy blankets to make sure your warm enough. In the winter we have a lovely wood burner, and I the summer you can enjoy the summer breeze coming through our bi-fold doors overlooking the beautiful garden. All you need to do is close your eyes and relax whilst I carry out your treatment.
After the treatment you can feel very floaty. I’ll make sure you have a nice drink of water and are feeling totally grounded before you leave.
How many treatments will I need and how long does it take?
This really depends person to person. After each treatment I will assess this for you and make a recommendation.
Your first treatment is going to be a little longer as we go through your medical history so allow about 75-90 minutes.
Subsequent treatments will be between 45 – 60 minutes depending on your needs on the day. Treatments cost £50 paid on booking by BACS.
I find that most people need a minimum of 4 sessions about a week apart to start with, 1-2 weeks apart. Depending on the issue you’re seeking treatment for. Treatments can become more spread out until you just come for a maintenance treatments or because you enjoy it for the relaxation and amazing feeling of well-being you’ll have after a Reiki session.
