What is Reiki...

Literally translated, Reiki means, Life-Force Energy and it is this concentrated, fine attunement to Life-Force Energy that you experience during a session.  A Reiki treatment is holistic, caring for the ‘whole’ person; mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically.  I find that Reiki is such a personal experience and 'what Reiki is' has subtle differences for each of us.  Each definition that I have read, has at it's core the common theme that Reiki brings us back to balance and in doing so allows the body, mind and spirit to do what it does best - work in harmony...

For me, Reiki is a journey and a way of life.  It underpins everything I am and everything I do.  Being in Reiki is a blessing that has, from the start, taught me to live with compassion, patience, empathy and connection.  It is the common thread that links all sentient beings, the life-force energy that is in all things... I love the explanation linked here (International House of Reiki), by Frans Steine, Reiki Author and Teacher...

What are the Benefits?...

Illness can be a time of great stress. Reiki can help us cope by encouraging relaxation and bringing balance to both mind and emotions. Benefits reported by patients include deep relaxation promoting a calm, peaceful sense of well being; on all levels.


Reiki encourages and supports positive personal choices such as improving diet, taking more exercise, devoting time for rest or leisure activities, and may reduce the need for alcohol and tobacco.


Engendering greater inner harmony and balance, regular Reiki treatments promote a calmer response to life’s challenges. Reiki’s gentle energy is easily adapted to most medical conditions and may be used safely by people of all ages, including the newborn, pregnant mothers, surgical patients, the frail and the elderly, in any situation. Reiki can enhance everyday living, and regular sessions may help to promote development of a healthier, more resourceful state of being.

The Power of Intention...

Setting a realistic intention and creating a focus in everyday life can have a profound effect on our health and wellbeing.  I find that holding an intention prior to a Reiki Session amplifies the Universal Energy.  Indeed we can hold the intention to 'feel relaxed' or to 'experience Reiki intently' or 'to relieve stress'.  Intention is personal to YOU.  We will hold space for your intention with each session.
