What is Usui Reiki?

Reiki is a simple yet powerful technique, using energy channelled through the hands of the practitioner. It originally evolved in Japan by Dr Mikao Usui and was later brought to the west.


Reiki promotes holistic healing, reduces stress and aids relaxation.

The word Reiki comes from two Japanese words – Rei and Ki. The word Rei means universal or divine wisdom. The word Ki means vitality or life force energy. Ki means the same as Chi in Chinese and Prana in Indian Sanskrit. They all refer to the life force energy that animates all living things

Ki is the reason why the physical organs function in a healthy way. When the flow of Ki gets blocked or disrupted, our life force energy is low causing a decrease in health on all levels – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.


When our energy is high, we are more likely to feel healthy and happy!


Reiki is a natural and safe way to increase the flow of energy and heal the body. It will work whether you believe it or not.

How does Reiki work?

During a Reiki session, you will be asked to lie down, although Reiki can be given in whatever position is suitable for you. No clothing is taken off during the treatment though shoes are usually removed. The practitioner will place their hands gently and non intrusively over different areas of the body, remaining longer over ‘problem areas', with the intent for healing energy to flow.

Benefits include: Increases life force energy so you will feel healthier physically and emotionally, reduces stress and tension – promoting relaxation, relieves headaches, colds, flu, fatigue, stomach upsets and any other discomforts of everyday life – strengthening the immune system, increases self-esteem, helps overcome fear and anxiety, helps to resolve unhealed emotional issues, heals on all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual and increases the overall quality of life.

How does Reiki feel?

Reiki is a very soothing, pleasant and relaxing experience and many people find that they can totally ‘switch off’ during a treatment, which isn’t always easy to do with a busy lifestyle.

Everyone’s experience will be different, though you may feel one or more of the following:​​

  • Warm or cold sensations

  • See colours

  • Sensations of floating

  • Tingly sensations

  • Sense of calm or peace

Angelic Reiki

Angelic Reiki is a powerful & beautiful hands-on healing technique, that works with the highest energies of the Angelic realms to bring about healing & balance on all levels to those receiving the healing energies. An Angelic Healing session is a profoundly relaxing & uplifting experience


During an Angelic Reiki treatment, the person receiving the treatment either sits on a chair or lies on a couch, while the practitioner places their hands on the recipient's shoulders - or chest & Solar Plexus if they are lying down, and channels the healing energies. The recipient remains fully clothed throughout the session.


The Angelic energies pass into the recipient & flow to wherever it is needed in the person’s body or Auric Field. The practitioner simply acts as a bridge for the Angelic Reiki energies to pass to the recipient or client.

We can also combine Usui and Angelic Reiki for your treatment.
