Reiki (pronounced Ray Key) is a Japanese word that means 'Universal Energy'.
Reiki was practised by the Buddhists in ancient times as a path to enlightenment but throughout the years the teachings were lost. Reiki was rediscovered in Japan in the 1800's by Dr Mikao Usui and eventually made its way into the Western world.
Reiki is a gentle yet powerful universal energy and healing art providing deep relaxation that promotes general wellbeing and also re balances an individuals own energy levels, providing healing and comfort physically, mentally and emotionally.
Reiki is an non-intrusive therapy, where the practitioner merely places their hands around the body, occasionally hands on. The sessions last around 75 minutes and are very relaxing.
