What is Reiki?
Reiki was developed in Japan by Mikao Usui in the early 1900s. After some time on Mount Kurama in meditative retreat he experienced 'satori' which can be translated as 'enlightenment'. The Reiki Council defines Reiki as 'Universal Life Energy' which describes the many systems of natural balancing.
Reiki is a non-invasive therapy said to use natural energy flow for health and well being. Its gentle nature means that it is suitable for all ages. Reiki may be used on the whole body or can be localised to a specific part of the body. You will remain fully clothed and typically asked to lie on a therapy couch. The therapist will place her hands on or near various parts of the body including the head, torso, knees and feet. The hands will remain in each position for up to 3 minutes before moving on to the next position. You may feel warmth, tingling and deep relaxation.
