Reiki is a Japanese Healing Art. A little over 100 years ago a Japanese man, Mikao Usui, began a personal search that ended with his having contact with the energy Reiki. His practice grew and eventually Reiki was introduced out of Japan via Hawaii in 1937 by Hawayo Takata Sensei. It is passed on from one person to another through a specific initiation, teachings and a defined form of practice.
The Japanese word ‘reiki’ can be translated as ‘universal life energy’ and the Usui System is a way of working with reiki for healing of self and others. The word healing is used in the sense of regaining harmony and wholeness.
Reiki can be used to restore body, mind and emotions into harmony by touch alone from a Reiki attuned therapist. A natural way to re-energise and relax the body. Reiki promotes feelings of well-being, peace and tranquillity, it speeds up the natural healing process and it is gentle and safe.
During a treatment the Reiki energy goes where the body needs it most and gently rebalances it.
There are many wonderful benefits of Reiki. Reiki is a very simple process, but usually produces quite profound effects. The main purpose of reiki practise is not only to heal diseases, but also to promote a positive mind and healthy body so that people can experience joy in life.
However, reiki does not promise a miraculous cure from disease. Conditions that have taken years to manifest in the physical body cannot be cured in a few sessions. The person has to want to be well and will probably also need to make some lifestyle changes so that the source of stress and negative emotion (disease) does not recur. It takes time for the Physical, Emotional, Mental and Spiritual bodies to be brought back into balance.

Japanese Hand and Arm Massage, 30 minutes, £30
A unique blend of shiatsu, reflexology and acupuncture to reduce stress, increases deep relaxation, improves circulation, cleanses the body of toxins, balances the whole system and increases energy.
Shiatsu is a traditional healing art. The philosophy underlying Shiatsu is that vital energy (Qi in Chinese, Ki in Japanese) flows throughout the body in a series of channels called meridians. For many different reasons this energy can stop flowing freely and this then produces a symptom of illness or discomfort. Shiatsu for the hands uses touch to affect the flow of Qi or Ki in the meridians. As the quality of the Qi or Ki changes, so symptoms associated with the imbalance will gradually improve.
Reflexology is a method of stimulating the body’s healing mechanisms through massage of certain reflux points on the feet, hands or ears in connection with meridian points. The therapy is based on the idea that the organs of the body are represented on the hands, feet and ears, making them a vital map of the body. A signal to the peripheral nervous system is triggered from gentle pressure to the hands. From there it enters the central nervous system where it is processed in various parts of the brain. It is the relayed to the internal organs.

Hand massage will help de-stress, open energy channels and create a feeling of wellbeing.
It provides relief at all levels, the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Massage helps to break down the knots and to disperse toxins whilst at the same time, improving nerve and blood supply, stimulating blood flow and oxygen to the brain.
