Reiki Treatments

What is Reiki Therapy?

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

From the first session, I feel so much better within myself; I am amazed by everything. I feel as if I can go out and face the world now...

I came to see Irene at a time when my arthritis had flared up very badly, at a very stressful period in my life. I have had six sessions, and throughout have seen a steady improvement in my arthritis ... and now take less painkillers. Irene is very easy to talk to and has a gift. I have been very fortunate to find the right healer for my needs.


What happens during a therapy session?

Wonderfully soothing music is played. The practitioner gently places their hands non-intrusively in a sequence of positions which cover certain parts of the body. The whole person is treated rather than specific symptoms. All full treatments usually take 1¼ hours (15 minute consultation is included).

What will I feel?

Feedback has varied: feeling warmth, from feeling heat to feeling code, feeling waves of energy, sensing various colours, or having no specific sensations. Reiki does, however, work towards the highest benefit for the person receiving the treatment. The benefits can be quite remarkable, from feeling deeply relaxed and calm, to obtaining relief from long-term pain and fatigue.

Treatments are safe, gentle, and non-invasive. Anyone can enjoy Reiki’s benefits, including children and pregnant women.

Almost from the first session I have been amazed at the heat I felt through my body and how my energy levels are getting better.


I felt relaxed and had an inner calmness. It was wonderful and I would certainly recommend it to everyone.
