Reiki is an ancient, non-intrusive complementary therapy. A hands-on healing technique, Reiki enhances the body’s own innate ability to heal itself on all levels restoring balance and harmony to the mind, body and spirit. While spiritual in nature it is not affiliated with any religion and people from all walks of life use Reiki. It is called universal life energy because it draws upon the healing energy of the universe rather than the energy of the practitioner
The energy involved in Reiki healing is the universal energy that surrounds all life. We all have an energy field (aura) surrounding our physical body. As we go through life we place demands on our energy field. Physical and emotional discomfort creates energy blockages which puts the chakras (which are the energy centres of the body) out of balance. Reiki restores the natural balance of the body, providing deep relaxation and bringing a sense of peace and well-being and helping the energy field to re-energise.
Reiki can benefit everyone and has been embraced by many western medical organisations. Hospices, Cancer centres, Hospitals and Nursing Homes quite often employ a Reiki therapist to carry out treatments.

Reiki is a great support in helping people deal with normal day to day issues in a relaxed way. People may find that after Reiki they cope better with life issues and their energy is not depleted along the way. People with low self-esteem and poor self-confidence levels may have also noted remarkable differences following treatments. Reiki is something that pregnant woman can use and can be a great support during child birth. Some maternity hospitals now offer Reiki as a complementary form of therapy.
What to expect during a treatment?
The client lies on a plinth, fully clothed except for shoes. Soft music, candles and oils may be burned to create a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. The Reiki practitioner has been professionally trained to channel the Reiki energy and places their hands on or above a series of body areas that correspond with the position of the chakras.
The Reiki energy flowing from the practitioner’s hands is a subtle energy and knows which part of the body it needs to go to. This will improve and unblock the energy flow. Reiki will pass through clothing, bandages, plaster casts or braces so anyone can avail of a Reiki treatment. The client will usually fall into a state of deep relaxation or even fall asleep. They may feel areas of cold, heat, or tingling. Emotions may become heightened and they may feel sad, peaceful or really happy. Everyone is different and there are no right or wrong experiences. Some people feel nothing different at all, that does not mean healing is not happening, the effects of Reiki are subtle and can be felt for up to a few days after a treatment while the energy is shifting. Drinking plenty of water during this time will help with the process.
Changes are taking place that the client may not be aware of. It is only over a period of time they will realise they feel better in themselves and more able to cope with stress and problems.
Each healing session takes approx 1 hr and costs €55
