About Reiki

Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy, an energy which is all around us. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to improve effectiveness and promote recovery. Reiki is a specific type of subtle energy work in which healing is performed by the touch of the hands, allowing the flow of the energy to the patient via the Reiki practitioner. It is an extremely powerful, yet gentle energy that can be easily channelled to yourself and others, just by intention.


In Reiki, there are seven chakras or energy centres seated inside a person. These chakras are situated in different points of the body. Each chakra works with a group of vital organs. Together, they ensure the wellness of a person. However, these chakras can be prone to deficiencies and imbalances. This is where Reiki can help to rebalance the energy of the chakras and in turn promote health and wellbeing.
