What is Reiki?
Reiki is a self-healing system, which can also be used to treat others. Channelling Reiki energy helps to balance and harmonise the body's energy system, thereby putting it in the best possible position to heal itself on all levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. It is a very effective way to relieve stress.
Clients' experiences of a Reiki treatment vary. A few may see colours or images, or be aware of energy realigning itself within the body. Most clients will feel heat (or sometimes cold) from the practitioner's hands and some may feel nothing at all.
Even if you feel no physical symptoms however, you can be sure that you will feel more calm, less stressed and very relaxed!
How long is a Reiki treatment?
A session lasts for approximately an hour. This includes a short chat before the treatment to highlight any areas of physical or emotional well-being the client wishes to work on.
Following the treatment the client will be given time to ground themselves again and to talk through any insights or observations they experienced.
For chronic or recurring problems a series of 6 - 8 sessions may be advised.
For those less mobile I can move my Reiki bench downstairs or visit you in your home.
There are many accounts of Reiki and other complementary therapies having a positive affect on those in palliative care.
Cancer Research UK, for example, report that, while Reiki is not advocated as a treatment for cancer itself, some people with cancer feel more relaxed after a Reiki treatment and better able to cope with the cancer. It may help control some of the side effects of cancer treatments, such as pain, anxiety and sickness.
This video by the Sam Buxton Sunflower Healing Trust explains how Reiki healers work alongside doctors and nurses in a growing number of NHS hospitals and hospices.

The Reiki precepts hold value for all of us....
"Just for today:

To avoid thinking too much about the negative
I have altered the wording for myself...
