WHAT IS REIKI?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is based on the theory that there is an unseen energy that flows through everyone. A disturbance of this energy can cause illness, stress or tension. Reiki involves a therapist laying their hands over the body and passing energy from their hands to the client. There are a number of hand positions which facilitate this: a Reiki practitioner will often place their hands around the head, neck, shoulders, stomach or anywhere else, depending on a client's needs.
A Reiki treatment provides deep relaxation and promotes positive well being and peacefulness. A good treatment will encourage the client to let go of any stress or tension.

WHAT DOES A REIKI TREATMENT INVOLVE?
Before any treatment, every client will receive a personal consultation. You will be asked about any illnesses or injuries. This is to ensure your safety and well being. Particular things to mention include any allergies, tightness or pain or conditions like pregnancy. Through this, your perfect treatment will be designed.
A Reiki treatment is carried out with the client laying fully clothed on a massage table. The Reiki practitioner will then place their hands in certain positions around parts of the body. Each position is normally held from 3 to 10 minutes, depending on a client's needs. Reiki provides deep relaxation and reduction of stress and tension.
