    Reiki is a natural energy therapy that promotes health and wellbeing. Reiki can be used as part of the treatment of minor to chronic illnesses. It can also be an integral part in prevention from disease as it calms the mind and increases relaxation. Reiki increases inner calmness and brings about greater peace.


    During a Reiki treatment, the hands are gently and lightly placed on the client’s body. Reiki is given through clothing. So a client can remain fully dressed during the treatment. The energy flow is very soft and comforting. Often clients fall asleep and experience a deep state of relaxation. The mind calms down, the breathing slows down and clients feel well, serene, at peace and happy! Often Reiki gets clients back in touch with their inner power to heal and be happy!


    One hour treatment of Reiki is equivalent to four hours of sleep, with benefits such as increased oxygen supply to the blood and cells. This clinical observation combined with the relaxation state, makes Reiki a most effective natural stress reliever. Regular use of Reiki leads to an increase in general vitality and well being and a sense of inner peace.
