What is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced Ray Kee) translated from Japanese as “life force energy” is a gentle and safe energy balancing therapy that originated in Japan. It is a deeply relaxing therapy that aims to bring balance and healing to the person as a whole. It heals by working on physical, mental and emotional levels. Reiki helps to remove energy blockages and encourages energy to flow freely. When energy flows freely throughout the body it creates a state of vitality and wellbeing. Our energy channels may become blocked and unbalanced when we experience stress, tension, inner conflict and turmoil. These blockages may manifest themselves as diseases and disorders such as headaches, digestive problems, anxiety etc. Reiki may help to promote wellbeing by restoring balance and harmony and helping one to find a sense of inner peace. Some people find that Reiki helps them bring about positive changes to their lives and how they feel about themselves.

What happens during a Reiki treatment?
During your first visit we will discuss your health and what you would like from the treatment for example, if you are feeling particularly stressed and want help with relieving that stress or you may be feeling a bit down and want Reiki to help lift your mood and make you feel good. The treatment will be explained to you and you will have the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have.The treatment will be carried out with you fully dressed whilst either sitting in a chair or lying on a couch, covered with a blanket. The only clothing you will need to remove is your shoes.The therapist will use light touch or simply hover their hands a few inches above the body in a sequence of hand positions, working from the head down the body to the feet. There is no massage or manipulation involved. Soothing music will be played to form part of the relaxing atmosphere.What you will feel during a treatment varies with each individual. Some people experience sensations such as heat, coolness or tingling throughout their body. Others report that they see colours whilst some may feel very little. However, every person that has received Reiki from Wellbeing treatment has reported that they feel a great sense of relaxation and some are so relaxed they even fall asleep during the treatment.
