Reiki is a deep relaxation technique that reduces stress and promotes healing. It re-activates the body’s natural energy system. It brings you back into balance on every level: physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. It puts your body in the best position to help heal itself.

When was the last time you allowed yourself to drift into a deep state of calm and feel revitalised afterwards? Reiki treatments can do that.

Irene gives Reiki therapy treatments at York Reiki Plus, 152 Fulford Road (basement), York YO10 4BE [map]:

Tuesday3.30pm to 6.30pm (on request)
Wednesday9.30am to noon; 5.30pm to 8pm

other times(possible by arrangement)
Irene also successfully gives treatments online and now offers those too.

A normal treatment session is 1 hour. Every session includes a brief consultation at the start, and a short assessment at the end. You can book just a single session, but because Reiki has a cumulative effect, a course of at least 3 is recommended.

A ½ hour introductory session is available too, but because of the consultation and assessment in practice the treatment itself is only 20 minutes.

Intuitive healings can be added, and Access Bars are also available.

sound bath
