If you’ve followed our newsletters recently you’ll be aware that we have been rebranding to incorporate more mind and soul treatments to complement our beauty treatments. We believe the body, mind, and soul can be harmoniously treated together – offering our clients the healthiest and most complete wellness experience possible. Beauty treatments will still be a significant part of what we do, but we firmly believe inner beauty also needs to be cultivated in order to allow ourselves to thrive wholly. One of our new treatments will be Reiki.

Reiki is a Japanese word made up by two terms, rei and ki. The first one means soul or spirit, the second vital energy. All together, the word may be translated as spiritually guided energy.  The treatment is credited to the Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui.

Being based on levels of inner energy, Reiki is classified as an alternative form of medicine, or simply as a stress reduction and relaxation technique.

Reiki is a simple method of spiritual healing, not only simple to perform, but also to learn. It’s natural and safe, there are no medications or products involved. It’s based around the idea that if your life energy is low, you’ll be more prone to get sick, stressed, and generally negative. Conversely, if life energy is high you’ll be experiencing happiness, good health and satisfaction.

According to Reiki’s principles, life energy runs through all living things. The life energy’s flow can be restored or increased by simply “laying on hands” (aka “palm healing”), and can work in conjunction with other therapeutic techniques.
.
Reiki is not taught to practitioners in a conventional way, it is rather passed on during a session where the Reiki master allows the students to have access to an unlimited supply of life energy, so that they can exercise their healing abilities on the others.
.
Reiki can have real benefits as it involves one’s emotions, body and spirit. Those who have had the treatment before describe it as glowing radiance that flowed through and around them, resulting in feelings of peace and wellbeing.

“Hands-off” Reiki technique.

Each session is between 60 and 90 minutes long. Before starting, the Reiki practitioner will have a brief chat with the client, describing the session and asking if there’s any particular issue they would like to discuss. Then the client is asked to remove their shoes and sit on their back on a massage table, or even a chair alternatively. Apart from the shoes, the client doesn’t need to remove any of their other clothes.

The session can be performed hands-on – through light touches – , or hands-off – by laying on hands.
The client might feel a warming or tingling sensation during the session, or a simple diffused sense of relaxation.
