Reiki originated in Japan from Dr Mikao Usui. The word “Reiki” is derived from two Japanese words: rei, or universal, and ki, or life energy.

Reiki is a holistic treatment, simultaneously healing on a physical, mental and emotional level. Clients come to Reiki for a wide range of reasons such as seeking relief from physical pain, emotional clearing and achieving greater mental clarity.What is Reiki?

What are the benefits of Reiki?

Benefits from a Reiki treatment are also wide ranging. From Clare’s own experience some common benefits that client’s gain are*:

  • Reduction or removal of physical pain
  • Accelerated healing process for viruses, injuries & infections
  • Deep relaxation during the session which is retained
  • Improved sleep quality and regulated sleep patterns
  • Mental clarity & opening up to profound personal insight
  • Increased wellbeing; feelings of calmness, peace & joy.
  • Renewed confidence in periods of transition.

As our physical, mental & emotional bodies are interconnected, it is often the case that receiving a treatment for one area also leads to improvement in another.

Clare has treated clients suffering from acute long term physical pain, emotional traumas through to clients seeking to overcome anxiety, awaken their inner knowledge or generally improve their wellbeing.

Reiki is being used in various settings including private practice, complementary therapy centres, GP surgeries, hospitals, hospices, post-operative recovery. Reiki treatments have been shown to be beneficial for people of all ages and medical conditions**

*Please note: Reiki does not take the place of conventional medicine. Always consult a GP for problems of urgent concern. Reiki is a complementary therapy that works effectively alongside orthodox healthcare.
