Hands on healing…
Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is two Japanese words which mean Universal Life Energy, an energy which is all around us.
Reiki energy brings deep relaxation, soothing emotions and reduces negative feelings. Reiki can help you be the best that you can be by bringing balance & harmony back that has previously been lost in hectic day to day life.
By balancing the bodies systems we are helping it to achieve greater health & well-being. Reiki is an excellent self-care tool. By taking the time, focus & desire to remember ourselves and have some TLC (tender loving care!)
It enhances the benefits of all other therapies. It has been said that one treatment is physiologically the equivalent of 3 to 4 hours’ deep sleep. It helps you find true peace of mind and brings positivity to help you cope with life’s daily challenges
Reiki traditionally is a hands on form of natural energy healing, however a hands off approach can also be taken depending on the clients preference.

What happens during a Reiki treatment?
During a session you will be asked to lie down on a therapy bed (or sit on a chair if this is easier for you) but will not be asked to remove any clothing except for things which could restrict your breathing or comfort, such as shoes or spectacles. Reiki will go through clothing, blankets, or even a plaster cast if necessary!
Treatment is given by Gabriella placing her hands gently on your body in a sequence of hand positions, spending several minutes holding each position.
These hand positions are non-intrusive, can cover both the front and back of the body and are varied to give Reiki to areas where it is specifically needed. If you find any of the hand positions uncomfortable please let the practitioner know. It should feel gentle, light & comfortable.
There is no massage or manipulation that takes place in a pure Reiki session.You may feel sensations such as heat, tingling or coolness under the practitioners’ hands as the energy flows, or in other parts of your body, or you may feel very little. Most commonly people experience a sense of well being, calm and relaxation, you may fall asleep or feel energized during the treatment. There is no right or wrong way to experience Reiki.
What is/how does Reiki therapy work?
Reiki is the spiritual life force, or vital spiritual energy, said to reside in all living things so this is a therapy in which the therapist channels this energy from him or herself into the patient by the gentle laying on of hands, to activate the natural healing processes of the client’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
This healing is safe, gentle and can be very powerful. It will help your body self heal and also works on every level to balance body, mind and spirit.
People often describe their healing session as being wonderfully relaxing and that they can feel a lovely warmth.
Reiki works in conjunction with the meridian energy lines and chakras through the use of the hand-positions.
