“Reiki” (pronounced “ray-key”) is Japanese for ‘universal life energy’, a word used to describe a system of natural healing. This tradition was discovered by Dr Mikao Usui in the early 20th century and evolved as a result of his research, experience and dedication.
Reiki is deeply relaxing, the energy transfer can help to dissolve emotional blockages held in the body. Therefore it has been known to help break free from negative thought patterns and improve your relationship with yourself. It cleanses the energy systems and rebalances.
Reiki can be used alongside conventional treatments, helping to activate the body’s own innate self-healing capabilities, often with fantastic results! Reiki takes us into a deep meditative state where we can connect with our higher self. It is common to feel a sense of love and peace when on the bed. This is the place where we can gain clarity on any issues we may have.
You can expect to feel deeply relaxed after a Reiki session. This kind of relaxation helps our bodies to sleep better, to think more clearly and to heal better. It is common for people to fall asleep during a Reiki session.
The treatment involves you lying face up on the Reiki table, fully clothed. Once I’ve gone through my preparation rituals and tuned into the Reiki energy, I will lay my hands on the main energy points (or chakras) and keep them there for however long seems appropriate. Everyone is different, and every treatment can be different. Some people have more of a mental experience, and go into a relaxed, meditative state. Some people feel heat, tingling and energy beneath my hands or in other parts of their bodies. It’s best to try not to have expectations and see what happens.
A treatment takes around 50 minutes and cost €50, though getting you settled in and talking before and after the session will mean the full session will be an hour or just over.
