Reiki is a natural healing therapy which evolved in Japan from the experience and dedication of Dr Mikao Usui (d. 1926). Reiki in Japanese means “Universal Life Force”, this is the vital energy that flows through all living things. This life force is known as Ki in Japan, Qi in China and Prana in India and Reiki, as acupuncture, tai chi and yoga, is based on the free-flow of this energy.

As a therapy, Reiki is based on the idea that, if the life force energy is low, we are more likely to get sick or feel stressed and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki is an effective and simple way of tapping into our life force energy to stimulate the body’s own natural healing potential. A Reiki treatment will connect you with your vital energy making you feel recharged and will encourage any physical or mental healing that your body needs to go through.

Treatments are performed fully clothed on a massage table or chair. The recipient simply lies and relaxes. The practitioner gently places their hands non-intrusively in a sequence of positions which cover the whole body.

Cost: £40 for 1 hour. Possible home treatments at extra cost.

"As a busy mum of 2 young boys and business owner, having a reiki session with Giuseppina was an absolute mind & body de-stress. Being able to totally relax with an empty mind is the best hour I can give myself. Afterwards felt completely re-energised. I look forward to my next session and would highly recommend this form of relaxation for a total 'Time-out' for yourself." Shelley, June 2014
