Reiki and Chakra balancing

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a hands on healing practice which utilises the presence of universal life force energy or Ki/chi, reducing stress and promoting relaxation and overall balance in mind, body and emotions by strengthening the energy within your own body to support the body’s self-healing ability.

Reiki translates as Universal life force energy. It comes from the combination of two Japanese words, ‘Rei’ which means ‘Spirit or Universal Power’, and ‘Ki’ which means ‘Life force energy’. The system of Reiki was founded in Japan in the early 1990’s by Mr Mikao Usui.

Reiki and the flow of energy

The flow of Reiki is as natural as the flow of water. Imagine a river with abundant flowing water that can keep itself clear and pure. Reiki energy is similar in that it helps the client to self-heal and reconnect with their true nature.

When your life force energy is high and flowing freely, you are healthy and happy. If your life force energy is low, you are vulnerable to illness, depression and stress. Reiki works on all bodily levels, the physical, mental and spiritual body. Reiki helps to allow the flow of energy, which accelerates the body’s natural ability to heal physical ailments.

Who is Reiki suitable for?

Reiki works at an unconscious level, on body and mind. It is safe for everyone – young and old. It is safe to use with any other medication. It is extremely gentle and non-intrusive. Reiki can do no harm.

What would I expect from a Reiki healing session?

A Reiki healing will last for anywhere between 60 and 90 minutes. 60 minutes is the most common time for a treatment.

Before the session:

You will be met by one of our friendly therapists who will ask you to fill out a brief consultation form. Before the treatment starts the client may share their current health concerns. These may be physical ailments, emotional difficulties or mental fatigue concerns. It is not always necessary for the client to share the problems arising because Reiki knows exactly what is needed. A client may not feel comfortable to share sensitive issues and that is absolutely fine. However, sometimes it is helpful for the client to express and unload by speaking about issues arising.

During the session:

The client will usually lie down on the massage table while fully clothed. 

The therapist places their hands lightly on the body, at specific energy locations, allowing a free flow of universal energy. The length of time that she leaves her hands in each position is determined by the flow of energy through her hands to you at each location. There is no pressure, massage or manipulation.

The therapist may offer some restful tips e.g. breathing exercises to allow the client to let go of all worries and enjoy the healing. Usually a client will close their eyes and not talk much, to allow for full relaxation. A client can share any thoughts or concerns they have at any time during the treatment.

Reiki treatments can be given alongside any health plan to assist and support improved health and wellbeing. More than one treatment may be helpful and in many cases 3-6 sessions may be ideal as true healing takes time.

After the session:

Your therapist will talk with you about how you feel and will recommend that you drink some water. They will then leave the room and wait in the reception area for you. Your therapist will discuss bookings for further treatments, if applicable. Please feel free to ask any questions at any time about any of the procedures. We want you to feel as relaxed and comfortable with the session as possible.

Feedback: We always appreciate any feedback that you can give us. If you have a moment, we would love for you to write a brief review.


What is Chakra balancing?

Chakra balancing creates balance in the body's energy systems which in turn helps achieve equilibrium throughout the mind and body.

What are Chakras?

They are spinning vortexes of energy within the human energy field -it’s where the physical meets the consciousness. In Chakra balancing we focus on the 7 main Chakras (Crown, Third Eye, Throat, Heart, Solar Plexus, Sacral and Base/Root) and each Chakra correlates to different organs and nerves in the body. They are each part and parcel of every sensation, feeling and emotional experience that we have.

How do you know if your Chakras are blocked?

When our Chakras are out of balance or blocked, they can reflect this in our physical being. For example, a blockage in the Solar Plexus can cause digestion troubles, heartburn, weight gain or loss and you may feel insecure and lacking confidence.

What happens when your Chakras are balanced?

When your Chakras are balanced and clear with free-flowing energy it brings harmony to your mind, body and soul and it allows your body to work at its optimum.

What causes Chakras to be blocked?

The biggest causes of blocked Chakras are stress and anxiety. These can create permanent tightness in the body's tissue and restrict the flow of energy. They also prevent the mind from focusing peacefully (meditating) on the movement of energy through the body. Past emotions or traumas can also cause blockages that we do not realise are in the way.

How will I feel after this session?

You will feel energised and lighter after this clearing and rebalancing session.


Relax, unwind and let your troubles float away.
