What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese word meaning “universal life energy”, and refers to a method of healing in which energy is transferred from the giver to the receiver. Reiki energy is drawn through the channel, which is the therapist, by the recipient rather than it being directed to the healer.
Reiki as a system of natural healing was developed thousands of years ago in Tibet and India. It was rediscovered and developed by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Buddhist monk, in Japan at the end of the 19th century. Usai recognised the need to treat the mind as well as the body, he used it as a method of self-healing and spiritual growth.
He also established the five principles of Reiki:
Just for today I will not worry
Just for today I will not be angry
Just for today I will do my work honestly
Just for today I will give thanks for my many blessings
Just for today I will be kind to my neighbour and every living thing.
Every living thing on this earth has universal life energy flowing through it – this is what helps keep it alive. Throughout our everyday life we experience certain pressures, tension and stress that make us feel low. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Reiki is a technique used to help reduce stress, clear blockages and rebalance the energy flow throughout the body. It helps you to feel relaxed and revitalised.

The Zen Garden room had total calmness, it just hits you when you walk in, I started to relax as soon as I walked in. I had Reflexology and reiki with Tania to help with relaxation and reduce stress. it really did make me feel so good inside, I felt relaxed, I had a clearer mind too. A total holistic experience
I found the Zen Garden room calming, peaceful, warm and tranquil. A professional area with soft lighting and relaxing aromas. I found my treatment (reflexology and reiki) to be professional, yet down to earth, relevant to own condition alongside being a real treat, time was taken to discuss findings and areas affected I found the whole experience very relaxing and helped with my own healing.

You relax, fully clothed, on a couch or seated while I hold my hands on or above you.
A reiki session can last 45-60 minutes depending on the treatment required.
In the western world, many reiki practitioners use the standard reiki hand positions and commonly a full reiki session is given covering all the important organs of the body.
There is no pressure on the body making it ideal for treating all ages and conditions, sometimes hands are even held away from the body. The energy flows wherever it is required (spiritually guided) and can normally be felt as a warm sensation of tingling in the body.
Receiving Reiki is a very relaxing and soothing experience.
After your reiki session when your blockages have been cleared, you may feel a temporary emotional release or complete happiness, these feelings are not uncommon and are just the body’s way of releasing the built up emotion that is carried within.
