What is Reiki?

Reiki is an ancient method of healing which is thought to have originated in Japan.

Reiki is said to channel Ki, also described as “universal energy within” in which, it is suggested, there is healing potential. Those who practise Reiki are said to draw upon universal healing energy, which is then transferred to the client through visualisation and by gently placing their hands on or just above the body.

Reiki is often described as a very relaxing and peaceful treatment, which helps to restore a sense of balance and well-being within the mind and body.
