Complementary Therapies


What is Reiki?

Reiki is a non-invasive, gentle, yet powerful method of healing. Reiki energy (described as ‘universal life energy’ or ‘spiritual energy’) which is accessed by the practitioner during treatment, enhances the body’s natural healing ability and promotes wellbeing.

Reiki treatment stands on its own as a healing practice and is also safely used to support orthodox and complementary medicine. It is increasingly accepted in health and community care facilities including hospitals, hospices and cancer support units.
