Reiki Treatments

What is Reiki?

The practice of Reiki is an original method of healing, rediscovered and developed in Japan by Doctor Mikao Usui in the 20th Century. Reiki is a gentle but effective treatment, which helps release the paths of energy blocked by injury, illness or difficult experiences.

There is no manipulation; the practictioner places their hands on or over the body throughout the session. Reiki promotes the body's own natural ability to heal itself, balancing the internal energy system as it does so, encouraging the release of tension and stress, leaving the body and mind balanced and re-energised.

Reiki can be used to help relieve the symptoms of many conditions:

  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Back Pain
  • Bereavement
  • Cancer
  • Circulatory Problems
  • Headaches, including migraine
  • Sports injuries
  • Stress related conditions

Reiki Share

In order to experience Reiki for yourself, without obligation, we offer you the opportunity of attending our Reiki Share classes, where experienced practitioners offer Reiki treatments to those present at nominal cost. Classes are held on the last Friday of the month from 7.30 to 9.30pm at the Phoenix Aikido and Fitness Club.


Reiki is a gentle yet powerful complementary therapy that may be used with confidence alongside orthodox healthcare. It does not interfere with any medication, including all cancer treatments. Reiki relieves stress, eases aches and pains, relaxes and creates a feeling of well being.
