Definition in the Oxford dictionary ‘ a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into a patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing process of the patients body and restore physical and emotional wellbeing’

The word ‘reiki’ literally translates as Universal life force energy.

It is a non invasive complementary therapy that has been used in the UK since the late 1900’s, but Eastern medicine has for thousands of years worked with this energy, recognising its flow through all living things.

It is not based on any belief, faith or suggestion.

It is given fully clothed, in a quiet space and is suitable for everyone, adults, children, pregnant woman and even animals.
