Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is two Japanese words meaning Universal Life Energy, Rei means "Gods wisdom or higher power" and Ki is "Life force energy" which is all around us, so Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy.There is no belief system or religion attached to Reiki so anyone can receive or learn to give a Reiki treatment, all you need is the desire to be healed.
Dr Mikao Usui (d 1926)was inspired to develop this healing system from ancient teachings after many years of study, research and meditation. He spent the rest of his life practising and teaching Reiki. Today Reiki continues to be taught by Reiki Masters who have trained in the tradition passed down from Master to student.

What happens during a Reiki treatment?
A full Reiki treatment last approx. 45 minutes and receiving Reiki from a practitioner is a simple process. The client lies on a treatment table and the practitioner will gently lay their hands on the body in a series of hand positions on the head, torso, and legs, sometimes hovering the hands rather than touching. Each hand position is held for a few minutes. During the treatment, energy (called “chi”) is drawn through the practitioner into the recipient, helping to produce a state of balance. The recipient remains clothed throughout the session.
What might I feel?
Deep relaxation, heat from the practitioner‘s hands, perhaps tingling, a feeling of floating or sinking, or perhaps nothing at all. It varies a lot from one person to another. But no matter what you feel during your treatment, Reiki is giving you what you need.
A full treatment is arranged with a practitioner and usually takes 1 to 1 ½ hours. At the first meeting a consultation form is filled in which has to be done by law and kept by the therapist for a number of years even if you never come back to see them. The recipient lies on a couch or a chair and is made comfortable. Anything that can hinder relaxation like belts are removed but clothes are kept on but the shoes removed. The practitioner gently places his or her hands non intrusively in a series of positions on the head and body. Reiki will go where it is needed working with the bodies natural healing wisdom
