What is Reiki and how can it help?

The practice of Reiki is an original method of healing, developed by Mikao Usui early in the 20th century.


The Japanese word Reiki means “Universal Life Energy”. Eastern medicine has always recognized and worked with this energy, which flows through all living things and is vital to wellbeing.


Reiki is a natural healing energy activated by intention. It works on every level, not just the physical and promotes the body’s regenerative self-healing ability. The purpose of Reiki is to heal holistically, rather than treat any specific disorders, and to restore balance.


Healing through human touch is the oldest, simplest and most natural of all therapies. The act of laying on of hands to comfort and heal conveys warmth, caring and affection, similar to the basic instincts of a parent and child.


Wellbeing is a question of our bodies being in balance. If our natural equilibrium is upset, then our energy cannot flow freely and we may become unwell.


Reiki benefits both the giver and receiver, it cannot be misused, nor do any harm. Reiki supports our body’s natural healing process.


As a Reiki Master and a member of the UK Reiki Federation, I work with people to help restore balance and calm into their busy lives and this complements my own holistic approach to life. Reiki is deeply relaxing and has a profoundly calming effect that is particularly effective in relieving stress.

Many of my coaching clients receive reiki after their session as a gentle and relaxing way to end their coaching session.



There are many specific examples of the benefits of Reiki including:
  • Relieving stress or tension and the many symptoms associated with these
  • Accelerating the healing of physical problems
  • Encouraging and supporting positive personal change
  • Balancing the emotions
  • Helping to ward-off illness and fatigue

“Life is not measured with the quality of breaths you take,
But with the quantity of moments that took your breath away.”
