Clinical Aromatherapy Massage,
Indian Head Massage, & Reiki
Reiki is a spiritual practice developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui. It uses a technique commonly called palm healing, or laying of hands, transferring healing energy in the form of ‘ki’ through the palms.
Meaning ‘Universal Life Energy’, Reiki is a simple, non invasive treatment performed over clothes. The healing energy is channelled through the practitioner’s hands to the recipient for physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well being.
Reiki balances the flow of energy through the body and gently releases any blockages that can lead to ill health. Inducing feelings of peace, calm and well being, it is particularly effective in the treatment of stress and releasing emotional blockages.
