What is Reiki?

Reiki is a gentle, non invasive therapy suitable for all ages, but a consultation with a practitioner is generally required first. It is said to use the energy flow from the practitioner’s hand when placed on or near the client. Reiki is said to help re-balance patients in mind,body and spirit.

Reiki is believed to promote benefits in relieving stress and tension, improving tiredness and promoting a positive mood and general sense of well-being. Reiki involves the Therapist entering a calm state and placing their hands on or close to various parts of the body such as the head and feet. As a patient you normally sit down or lie on a treatment table and can remain fully clothed. The objective of the treatment is to enter a very relaxed state with a sense of improved well-being.

We will shortly be introducing a new Therapist to the centre who practices in this area who is a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists: www.fht.org.uk
