What is Reiki?

Hands on healing….

Reiki traditionally is a hands on form of energy healing, however a hands off approach can also be taken depending on the clients preference.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom” or the “Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

Natalie uses the Usui system based on an ancient Tibetan Buddhist technique, developed in Japan in the late 19th or early 20th century by Dr Mikao Usui (1865–1926).

How does it work?

Reiki is the spiritual life force, or vital spiritual energy, said to reside in all living things so this is a therapy in which the therapist channels this energy from him or herself into the patient by the gentle laying on of hands, to activate the natural healing processes of the client’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being.

This healing is safe, gentle and can be very powerful. It will help your body self heal and also works on every level to balance body, mind and spirit. 

People often describe their healing session as being wonderfully relaxing and that they can feel a lovely warmth.

Reiki works in conjunction with the meridian energy lines and chakras through the use of the hand-positions.
