“Wellness is generally used to mean a healthy balance of the mind, body and spirit that results in the overall feeling of well-being."

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a term used to describe a natural healing system, originally taught by Mikao Usui,  which helps bring about a sense of well being.  Reiki’s natural energy is powerful yet gentle and can prove helpful when experiencing periods of emotional anxiety and physical pain and discomfort.

Reiki is safe for everyone, regardless of age or state of health - you do not have to be ill to benefit from Reiki’s calming and relaxing effect. Often, no matter what the problem, Reiki can help you cope better with it.  Once you have experienced the benefits of Reiki treatments you may wish to learn how to use this energy to treat yourself or other people.

As a qualified Usui Master Teacher and Practitioner, ! offer Reiki treatments and courses from my home in Swanage, Dorset. I am also a certified Reiki Science Practitioner.

Where does Reiki come from?

Reiki is universal energy and available to all.  This does not come from your practitioner – they are simply a “channel” through which your body draws the energy.

What happens during a Reiki Treatment?

There is no physical pressure applied during a Reiki treatment, making Reiki ideal for those who have undergone any type of operation, during pregnancy, for the elderly or anyone in pain.  Usui Reiki may be used with confidence alongside orthodox healthcare and other complementary treatments.

At the time of your Reiki session, you will be asked to lie on a couch if possible. Shoes are usually taken off but no other clothing is removed for the Reiki treatment. Your therapist’s hands are placed gently and non intrusively in positions over the entire head and body, remaining longer over “problem” areas.

Many people ask what they will experience during a Reiki treatment - this can vary from one visit to another, depending on your needs at the  time.  Some people feel warmth, tingling or just complete relaxation and a sense of complete calm and peace. Many people find that they can totally “switch off” during a Reiki treatment - not something that many of us find easy to do.  Following a Reiki treatment, most people feel relaxed and refreshed and more at peace with themselves. Reiki is also an excellent therapy for helping to resolve unhealed emotional issues and coping with periods of stress and anxiety.
