About Reiki

What is Reiki?

Reiki (pronounced Ray-Ki), is a gentle, non-evasive, yet very powerful energy healing technique originating from Japan and was developed just over a hundred years ago by Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist scholar.

Reiki aims to restore an unrestricted flow of energy to produce harmony of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing. It is used as an energetic tool and presence to help clear the way for your own strength and natural healing process. It creates a deep relaxation to help encourage healing on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. This empowers the body to deal with ailments or disease itself.

While it is not a substitute for modern medicine it is now called on often as the first port of call rather than a last resort to compliment modern medicine. Accredited by the CNHC and being recognised by the NHS Reiki is now, for good reason going from strength to strength.

Why do people with Cancer have Reiki? (This is taken directly from Cancer Research UK)

Some people say that Reiki has helped to control side effects of their cancer treatments, such as pain, anxiety and sickness.

They also say that it helps them cope better with their cancer and its treatment.

Some people with cancer say they feel better after using therapies such as Reiki. Studies show that this is often because a therapist spends time with the person, and touches them.  But it’s important to bear in mind that while Reiki may help you to cope with your symptoms or side effects, it is not able to treat your cancer.
