Reiki can be given and received just as effectively by using a hands-off as well as hands-on technique.
Reiki is a Japanese word and literally translates as ‘universal life force energy’. It is a complementary healing system developed by Mikao Usui early in the 20th century. Eastern medicine recognises that Reiki energy flows through all living things rather like an energy medicine. Reiki, like other complementary therapies, supports orthodox medicine or can be used alone but is not a replacement for traditional medication or treatments. It has no basis in any faith or religious belief system but scientific research using quantum physics is providing us with information to help increase our understanding of how and why it works.
Reiki is safe for anyone of any age and for animals with the owner’s and vet’s consent. It is safe for pregnant women and babies too. It is given in a peaceful environment, fully clothed and is not diagnostic of health conditions. It is gentle, relaxing and peaceful. You can lie down or sit up supported and the session lasts approximately 40 minutes. A full explanation of a session is explained on an individual basis prior to treatment where questions can be answered in depth.
