What is Reiki?

Reiki is a form of alternative therapy that originated in Japan in the early 20th century. The word “Reiki” is derived from two Japanese words: “rei,” which means universal or spiritual, and “ki,” which means life force energy.

Together, Reiki can be interpreted as “universal life force energy.”

In Reiki practice, the practitioner channels this life force energy through their hands to promote healing and relaxation in the recipient. The underlying belief is that when the life force energy is low or blocked, it can lead to physical, emotional, or spiritual imbalances or illnesses, and by transferring this energy, balance and healing can be restored.

Melanie’s ‘Why’

From the very first moments I spoke to Melanie you could feel she had a wonderfully calm persona, and a warm welcoming approach to being with people.   She began using Reiki, and also Sound Healing, tas part of her own recovery process a few years ago following a traumatic personal event. These continued treatments significantly aided her healing and play in integral part of her support system to this day and she is now able to help others in the same way.

How might Reiki benefit me in my daily life?

There are many ways that Reiki might benefit you, here’s just 6 ways that your life can be enhanced by it.

  1. Stress Reduction: Reiki promotes deep relaxation, which can help reduce stress and tension in the body and mind. This can lead to improved sleep, a better mood, and an overall greater sense of calmness.
  2. Pain Relief: Some find that Reiki can help alleviate physical pain and discomfort by promoting the body’s natural healing processes. It is often used as a complementary therapy for chronic pain conditions.
  3. Emotional Healing: Reiki is believed to help release emotional blockages and promote emotional healing. It can provide a sense of comfort, support, and inner peace during challenging times.
  4. Improved Energy Flow: By balancing the body’s energy centres (chakras) and removing blockages, Reiki can help improve the flow of energy throughout the body. This can enhance vitality, clarity, and overall energy levels.
  5. Enhanced Well-being: Many people experience a sense of overall well-being and balance after receiving Reiki sessions regularly. It can support physical, emotional, and spiritual harmony.
  6. Support for Mental Health: It should be sait that Reiki is not a replacement for professional mental health treatment, but many individuals find it beneficial as a complementary practice. It can help reduce anxiety, depression, and promote a more positive outlook on life.
