Reiki originates from Japan and the word translates to “universal life energy.” It was founded by Miko Usui in the early 20th century. Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
There are many variations of Reiki, but in essence Reiki treatments can help the body emotionally and spiritually. It is a tradition that is open to any belief system, so anyone can enjoy it during their life time. Reiki can be used alongside other conventional or complementary treatments and often helps to provide emotional support during recovery.
Some people feel sensations when receiving treatment whilst others may just get a calming feeling.
