Why choose Reiki?

When the flow of the Energy is disrupted, weakened or blocked in our body, emotional or health problems tend to occur. Imbalances can be caused from many situations occurring in our lives or from emotions that are not expressed in a healthy way.

Whilst it can relieve pain and help to regenerate organs and tissue, Reiki can also loosen blocked energy, promote total relaxation and work on the mental and emotional levels to re-establish mental well-being and spiritual equilibrium.

What happens during a treatment?

Before the first session, a detailed consultation and medical history is taken. Fully clothed, you will lie on a couch.

The therapist places her hands gently on and over the body in a sequence of positions, holding each one for several minutes. Reiki may be experienced as a flow of energy, mild tingling, warmth, coolness, other sensations, or nothing at all.
