‘Receive Universal Life Force Energy’

Reiki is a Japanese healing technique that helps to alleviate stress, promote relaxation and encourage the body’s natural healing ability.  It is performed by the ‘laying of hands’ either on the physical body and/or in the aura.  It is based on the idea that an unseen ‘life force energy’ surrounds and flows through everything living, and when this energy is directed to specific areas of the body it boosts the body’s natural healing potential.  If one’s ‘life force energy’ is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.  If we hold onto negative emotions or unsupportive mental thoughts over long periods of time our energy can become ‘blocked’ and then ultimately cause dis-ease in the body.  Reiki boosts the body with this natural energy and reminds it how it feels to be balanced and in harmony again.  Everyone is able to receive and even channel Reiki, however therapists who have been attuned to the Reiki energy by a Master teacher will have the ability to act as a conduit for this universal life force with more fluency than the average person.  Consequently you will receive a boost of this natural healing energy to help heal your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual being.

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit, creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.  Many people report significant improvements in specific ailments and a course of Reiki treatments can act as a wonderful tonic for coping with the stresses and strains of every day life. 

Each 1 hour treatment is £40 and will compromise an initial consultation where I evaluate your needs and ask you to fill out a treatment record form (1st session only) followed by the Reiki Treatment.  This is performed on a professional massage couch with blankets and cushions to support you in the most comfortable position (usually lying on your back).  Reiki can also be performed in a seated position if preferred and is always performed fully clothed.   You will receive feedback from me at the end of the session and recommendations for how best you can support your ongoing healing.  If you would like to ask further questions before booking please do feel free to email me or look at the frequently asked questions section on this website.  Please consult your Doctor before booking this treatment if you are currently receiving guidance for a medical condition.


The word Reiki is made up from two Japanese words ‘Rei’ which means ‘Higher Power’ and ‘Ki’ which is ‘Universal Life Force Energy’.  So one could interpret Reiki as ‘Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy’.  It is a simple, natural and safe method of healing and self-improvement that everyone can use and benefit from.  It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect because it is ‘intelligent energy’ so naturally flows to the parts of the physical and emotional body that require attention.  It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.  It is important however to always consult your Doctor to discuss the suitability of this holistic treatment if you are receiving medical treatment for an ongoing health issue.

Reiki is a simple technique to learn; the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, and instead is transferred to the student during a Reiki class where a Reiki master ‘attunes’ the student to the universal life force energy using sacred symbols.  This attuning allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of ‘life force energy’ which can then be used to self heal and also pass on to others to improve health and enhance the quality of life.

It’s use is not dependent on one’s intellectual capacity or spiritual development and therefore is available to everyone.  It has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds for many many years.

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion.  It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in, in order to learn, use or receive Reiki.  In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. Because Reiki comes from universal life force many people find that using Reiki puts them more in touch with the experience of their own religion rather than having only an intellectual concept of it.

While Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others.  Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing (and the lineage which I personally have been attuned to), recommends that one practices simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony.  When I learnt Reiki for the first time in 2008 I produced a scroll (pictured below) that helps remind me of the Reiki Principles.

The 5 Reiki Principles

During a meditation several years after developing Reiki, Mikao Usui decided to add the ‘Reiki Principles’ to the practice of Reiki.  The principles came in part from the five principles of the Meiji emperor of Japan whom Mikao Usui admired.  The principles were developed to add spiritual balance to Usui Reiki.  Their purpose is to help people realise that healing the spirit by consciously deciding to improve oneself is a necessary part of the Reiki healing experience.  In order for the Reiki healing energies to have lasting results, the client must accept responsibility for her or his healing and take an active part in it.  Therefore, the Usui system of Reiki is more than the use of the Reiki energy.  It must also include an active commitment to improve oneself in order for it to be a complete healing system.  The principles are both guidelines for living a gracious life and virtues worthy of practice for their inherent value.

‘The secret art of inviting happiness and the miraculous medicine of all diseases’
Just for today, do not anger;
Do not worry and be filled with gratitude;
Devote yourself to your work. Be kind to people.
Every morning and evening, join your hands in prayer.
Pray these words to your heart, and chant these words with your mouth.

The founder, Usui Mikao
