‘Reiki’ (ray-key) is Japanese for ‘universal life energy’.  When we are healthy we have a strong flow of energy running through our bodies, but when stressed or ill this is depleted.  During Reiki we shift any energy blocks and allow more energy to flow into the body.  The practitioner’s hands are laid either on the body or, if you prefer, just above.  You may feel sensations like heat, cold, tingling or vibration and afterwards you should feel calmer, more balanced and energised.

It is very relaxing and can make a great impression on the client.  People generally feel better, calmer, clearer, more positive and pain can be minimised or even disappear.  Where appropriate I can combine Hypnotherapy with Reiki in the form of Hypno-Reiki, which combines two powerful healing therapies.  Each treatment method is extremely effective in producing healing on all levels of one’s being. This includes physical, emotional, spiritual and mental levels. When both methods are used in collaboration, the healing potential that can be achieved with Hypno-Reiki treatment is far greater than that of a hypnosis or Reiki treatment alone.

Afterwards, you will normally feel calmer, more balanced and more energised.  It is suitable for everybody.  It does not have any links to religion.
