Reiki treatments

Receiving Reiki from a fully qualified Master Reiki Practitioner, registered with the Reiki Federation and tha Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Energy Medicine, is a simple process. You will lie on a treatment table, and the practitioner will gently lay their hands on your body, in a series of hand positions on your head torso and legs, sometimes hovering the hands above your body. Each hand possition is held for a few minutes.

What might I feel?

deep relaxation, heat from the practitioners hands, perhaps tingling, a feeling of floating or sinking; or perhaps nothing at all. It varies a lot from one person to the other, but no matter what you feel during the treatment, Reiki is giving you what you need, and you will feel the benefits build up after the treatments.
