What makes Reiki different to other healing techniques is the Attunement process. It is a very ancient methodology for fine tuning the physical and etheric bodies to a higher vibratory level. The energy centres are opened to enable the person to receive and vibrate higher amounts of life energy.


– Energy is movement, illness is inertness
– It relies on body wisdom, the body seeks homeostasis
– Energy Medicine releases endorphins
– Energetic level precedes physical manifestation
– It honours interconnections of body systems
– Thoughts are directive energy. “I admit thoughts influence the body”. Albert Einstein.

Reiki is a life force energy to improve one’s health and quality of life. It has a spiritual component in its healing. ‘Rei’ is the Japanese word for ‘Higher Power’ and ‘ki’ is the life force energy. In other words, Reiki is a ‘spiritually guided life force energy’.
Life force is a subtle energy that surrounds and flows through pathways such as meridians in all living beings. The life force nourishes all the cells in the body and supports their functioning. When your life force is low, you are likely to feel weak. You will be susceptible to illness. Strengthening your life force will help your body heal and remain healthy.

Thoughts and feelings can affect the life force. If you have negative thoughts or negative feelings about yourself, the flow of your life force becomes disrupted causing diminished functioning of your body organs. Your overall body balance (physical, mental and emotional), medically termed homoeostasis, is disturbed. You then become ill.

How does Reiki work?
Reiki treatment increases your supply of life force energy and helps you heal quickly. It promotes relaxation, makes you feel at peace, and reduces your stress. You start moving toward your unique physical, mental, and spiritual balance, and your body’s own healing mechanisms begin to function more effectively.

Reiki is administered by the hands, placed lightly on or near the body of the patient. The healing energy from the body and hands of the Reiki practitioner flows to the patient. The patient then experiences feelings of relaxation, mental clarity, pain relief, decreased anxiety, and a sense of well-being. Research has shown that this occurs because the activity of parasympathetic autonomic nervous system in the patient increases significantly.
