Reiki

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing.  It works well in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery and is often used in hospitals and hospices along side other complementary therapies.

We work closely with client’s undergoing chemotherapy/radiotherapy to provide weekly treatments of reiki and reflexology, to help them deal with the physical and phschological issues of their situation.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by the “laying on of hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.  Reiki is also used to treat areas of pain or discomfort, Kate always being on hand to treat the family’s aches and pains and her own sciatica!

In individual Reiki treatments, clients remain clothed throughout.  The treatment can be “hands on” or “off” – at the client’s choice. Kate will provide you with feedback of the areas where the greatest “draw” of energy is felt and this gives some guidance as to where there are issues (mental, emotional, security, etc).  Kate is happy to undertake a free short trial of Reiki on clients after a massage/reflexology if they want to experience first hand the nature of the therapy.

At Pure-Therapy we are committed to providing the best all round therapy possible and Kate will therefore include untargeted Reiki as part of her massage treatment (at no extra charge) if requested.  The impact of this is to make the massage more relaxing for the client.

Treatments are generally carried out with the client reclining on a massage couch.  They can however remain seated in a Lafuma recliner if they prefer.  Therapies are conducted in the client’s own home or in the Treatment Room.
