Reiki Healing

Reiki healing is natural and gentle

Reiki healing involves gently laying the hands on the body or above the body.

This directs healing energy from the universal life energy through the Reiki practitioner to the area of imbalance or illness in the person receiving Reiki.

Reiki is an energy healing treatment that works holistically, on the whole body, mind and spirit.

Reiki is a relaxing treatment where natural healing passes through the hands of a Reiki practitioner to the client.

Reiki (pronounced ray-key), is a natural form of healing that uses the subtle energies of the body and universal life force energy to bring the whole person into equilibrium.

Reiki will not only treat the area where hands are placed but will often travel to other areas of the body where it is needed.

When hands are placed on the head, Reiki will treat the head, and may also travel to the stomach. Treating feet can also result in Reiki flowing to the back.

Reiki will travel to wherever it is need.

The body and mind are no longer viewed and treated as separate. It is now known that psychosocial factors, such as intention, emotional states, and stress, have an effect on the biological functioning and health.

Frequency of Reiki Treatments

Those with severe health conditions benefit from two Reiki treatments a week and gradually increasing the time between treatments to a month apart. However, less severe conditions only require one treatment a week which can be reduced accordingly.

What you may experience during a treatment

Some clients experience heat in one part of the body or all over. Some will experience a cold feeling in one part of the body or all over. While others will experience a tingling sensation.

None of these experiences are to be feared as they are normal experiences.

Don’t be concerned if you don’t feel anything at all during Reiki healing, please don’t think that the treatment hasn’t worked because you didn’t experience any of these sensations.

You will feel very relaxed after a treatment and its important to drink water to re-hydrate and sit for a while to ground yourself especially before driving.

Men often sleep during a Reiki treatment. An emotion that comes to mind during a treatment can often be the cause of the problem.


Although Reiki has been practiced for many years, it has only just begun to be studied by medical and psychological professionals within the last few decades.

The research is mainly to determine the effectiveness of Reiki on cancer and treating the side effects of cancer treatments.

The most recent data analysed during a study from 2008 to 2009 shows strong evidence that Reiki is responsible for a positive biological response in both humans and animals.
