The Japanese word Reiki is usually translated as 'universal life energy', and the idea is that energy or 'chi' flows freely through all living things in our world, including the human body. Reiki is non-intrusive, safe and gentle, and uses chi which is channelled through the practitioner to treat physical ailments without using pressure, manipulation or massage. When we are in poor health the energy may not be as free-flowing, and Reiki may help to clear these blockages in a person's energy field, kick starting that natural process to self-heal, promoting better health and well-being. 

The person receiving Reiki will usually either be lying down or seated and remain fully clothed although shoes should be removed. Reiki practitioners gently place their hands either on or just above the body, and clients often experience a new profound sense of calm and peace often bringing a new perspective or attitude to current everyday problems.
