Reiki is based on the idea that by helping to support the flow of energy the body can heal itself.

Reiki is a non-contact treatment that was originally developed in Japan, with the name translating to ‘universal life energy’.
The therapist places their hands over your body, moving them in a sequence to cover each of the body's 'Chakras', otherwise known as energy fields.
You may feel a slight warmth or tingling in some areas of the body throughout the session as the therapist moves from Chakra to Chakra.
