Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy, an energy which is all around us. Treatment is given through clothing, by the practitioner simply placing their hands non-intrusively in a series of positions which cover the whole body.
The recipient receives the Reiki energy in whatever way is most appropriate for them at that time, from a healing energy at an acute level, to help heal recent surface injuries, to the deeper, more chronic treatment of long-standing difficulties, both physical and emotional. It is a very relaxing therapy.
Each Reiki appointment usually lasts approximately one hour. Ilkley Complementary Therapies is also able to offer Reiki attunements for people wishing to use this powerful healing energy themselves.
