Reiki (ray-key) is Japanese for ‘universal life energy’, and is also a word used to describe a system of natural healing.
There are many vibrations of Reiki but in essence treatments can help the body emotionally or spiritually. It is a tradition that is open to any belief system and is a process that anyone can enjoy in the normal course of their life.
It can be used alongside other conventional or complementary treatment and often helps to provide emotional support during recovery.
For me Reiki aids relaxation, during and after a treatment I get the deep feeling you achieve in meditation or after being out in nature. It’s a way to unwind and get back in touch with your inner core.
