Originating in Japan, Reiki means “universal life force energy” and is a complementary healing modality that supports the body’s natural ability to heal and repair. It can be used alone for relaxation purposes or in conjunction with other medical modalities.

How does it work?
A Reiki Treatment is non-invasive and relaxing. Hands are placed on or just off the body by a certified practitioner with the intention that healing takes place for the client. The Reiki practitioner acts as a conduit to the universal energy field, allowing Reiki energy to move through them to the recipient. You don’t have to believe in Reiki for it to work for you. You simply have to be open to the possibility of receiving its benefits. Reiki will always go where it is most needed.
