Reiki is a gentle, yet powerful form of healing and the benefits are felt on all levels.  As a natural healing system, it can benefit everyone, from young babies to adults and is a safe, non-invasive treatment.  It can be used alongside other complementary therapies or conventional medicine.  Reiki can be given on a treatment couch or sitting in a chair, therefore making it an easy treatment to receive.

Reiki helps the body to reach an inner state of harmony, physically, mentally and spiritually.  As well as helping many physical ailments, it can also promote the changing of any negative mental habits, turning these into more positive and productive thought patterns.  Once we begin to think more positively, our lives and our health become more positive too.


Reiki and Stress Reduction

A picture of pebblesTreatments with Reiki energy reduce stress within the body, thereby inducing a state of relaxation.  The body can then be allowed to begin the healing process.  While stress is not considered an illness, most people have experienced it.  When stress is being felt for a prolonged period of time, then the body can begin to be affected both physically and mentally, as it weakens the immune system.  In the UK alone, the Health & Safety Executive report that an estimated half million people experience stress at a level that makes them ill and unable to work.  In addition, to this, hundreds of thousands of people are now taking anti-depressants to allow them to cope with life.  However, Reiki can and does help with stress reduction, which has the added benefit of boosting the immune system.
