Reiki has grown in popularity over the last few years and is practiced by many holistic practitioners. It has become widely recognised by doctors, resulting in some hospitals allowing Reiki practitioners to work alongside medical staff to help their patients.


As well as helping many physical ailments, it can also promote the changing of any negative mental habits, turning these into more positive and productive thought patterns. Reiki energy is gentle to receive, yet a powerful form of healing.


Who are Reiki treatments suitable for?

As a natural healing system, Reiki treatments are suitable for everyone, from babies through to adults, and also animals. It can be used alongside other therapies or conventional medicine.

What can Reiki be used for?

Treatments are fantastic for people who just want to de-stress or for those who may be suffering from an illness or injury. Reiki can be used as a preventative treatment, helping to keep your body, mind and emotions in balance. There are no known contra-indications to receiving a Reiki treatment.


There are no guarantees of being able to cure you completely using Reiki, although there are countless cases where this has occurred. Once improvements have been noticed, it may also be time to look at ways of helping yourself to remain in this improved state such as changing old negative ways of thinking, improving ways of dealing with stress, improving your diet, getting more exercise and so on.

How is a Reiki treatment carried out?

Beforehand, you’ll provide a brief lifestyle and medical history. You’ll lie down, fully clothed on the couch, where you’ll be covered with a blanket. If you find lying down for prolonged periods difficult, you can be treated sitting in a chair. There will be soothing music playing softly in the background and the room will be softly lit. The Reiki energy will flow through the practitioner’s hands situated over energy points on your body, sometimes directly on you and other times keeping hands just above your body.

What might I feel or experience during a Reiki treatment?

Each person experiences Reiki differently, although all agree it provides a wonderful feeling of relaxation, balance and wellbeing. Most people feel warmth or cold coming from the practitioner’s hands. Other people feel no sensation at all and that’s OK too. Reiki energy will work whether someone has a sensation or not. Emotions may be gently released, as the energy clears any blockages that may have been present. Memories from past experiences may also surface which need healing. Reiki healing calms the mind and provides clarity of thought so another experience many people have is that answers to a problem they are currently facing, suddenly come to light, therefore making the situation easier to deal with. Whatever happens during your treatment, it will always be a gentle and rejuvenating experience.

What might I feel after a Reiki treatment?

The majority of people feel relaxed after a Reiki treatment. Most say that overall, they have a general feeling of wellbeing and calm. Others may feel full of renewed energy. On some occasions, a healing reaction may occur, perhaps taking on the form of a cold or tiredness or an emotional release. This is the body’s way of releasing toxins and unwanted stale energy and the symptoms will be short-lived. These reactions are not serious and completely normal.

How many treatments might I need?

Everyone heals at the right time for them and therefore it varies enormously from person to person. As a general rule, chronic long term problems do take longer to heal, although in some instances, recovery can be very quick. Ultimately, it is up to you how many treatments you would like to receive. Many people have a few weekly treatments and then visit periodically to maintain a feeling of balance.
