The Healing Energy

Reiki is a healing practice which focuses on assisting the flow of energy through the body and encouraging emotional as well as physical healing by using a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing. Reiki combines the Japanese and Chinese word-characters of "rei" (spiritual or supernatural) and "ki" (vital energy).

Its current form was first developed in 1922 by a Japanese Buddhist called Dr Mikao Usui, who reportedly taught 2,000 people the Reiki method during his lifetime. Having studied and practised healing for many years, Dr Usui had found that many methods of healing depleted the practitioner of their own energy when giving treatments. Dr Usui later opened a clinic in Tokyo where he founded the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkei – the Usui Reiki Healing Society. The practice spread to the U.S. through Hawaii in the 1940s, and then to Europe in the 1980s.

At your first appointment, you will have a short introduction about the process and your intentions. During the clothed, full-body treatment you will lie on a comfortable table while the closed-eyed practitioners moves their hands gently around your body. You will feel an increase in temperature through the practitioners’ hands resulting in the stimulation of your own natural healing abilities. We offer 60 or 90 minute treatments.
