Discovered by Dr Usui in the early 20th century Reiki is a natural healing energy. Reiki is a pleasant relaxing form of therapy where the practitioner channels the flow of healing energy to the patient. The energy flows to where it is needed most and works on mental, emotional, spiritual and physical levels.
Reiki is non-intrusive, gentle and non-manipulative and it can be either a hands on or hands off therapy which is usually conducted through the patients clothing. Everyone has a different experience of a Reiki treatment though most report feeling calm, relaxed and energised from the experience.
Reiki can be used as a treatment in its own right or alongside other therapies.
