Reiki is a form of therapy that uses simple hands-on, no-touch, and visualization techniques, with the goal of improving the flow of life energy in a person. Reiki (pronounced ray-key) means “universal life energy” in Japanese, and Reiki practitioners are trained to detect and alleviate problems of energy flow on the physical, emotional, and spiritual level. Reiki touch therapy is used in much the same way to achieve similar effects that traditional massage therapy is used—to relieve stress and pain, and to improve the symptoms of various health conditions.
Reiki claims to provide many of the same benefits as traditional massage therapy, such as reducing stress, stimulating the immune system, increasing energy, and relieving the pain and symptoms of health conditions.
A method of treating bodily disorders and restoring spiritual balance in which a practitioner places the palms of the hands on a part of the body in the belief that healing energy will flow there.

The client lies on a massage table fully clothed, removing shoes or any tightening restrictions such as belts, etc. The practitioner places their hands lightly on or above the body. They use 10-12 hand positions.
The practitioner stays at each position until they no longer feel the energy flowing, usually 3-5 minutes.
A typical session lasts 45 – 60 minutes, depending on the need of the client. The client usually feels a warm sensation resulting in an inner sense of peace and well-being.
During the session the body can release stress, pain, anxiety and re-balances all body levels, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]
We have seven major energy centres and each one corresponds to an area of the body and the organs, glands, muscles, etc. within that area. The names of these centres are called chakras, which mean spinning wheel or spinning flower.
