Reiki is a spiritual practice developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui that uses a technique commonly called “palm healing”.

Today many branches of Reiki exist, though there exist two major traditions, respectively called Traditional Japanese Reiki and Western Reiki.

Japanese Reiki hand positions, presented in the Usui Reiki Ryōhō Hikkei (the Usui Reiki Handbook), as used and compiled by Usui are considerably more extensive than the hand positions used in Western Reiki.

The practitioner's hands are gently placed in various positions either on and over the body, inducing a sense of relaxation and well-being as the body's energies are, in Reiki terms, ’rebalanced'.

What to expect

The recipient simply lies on a couch and relaxes. If you are unable to lie down the treatment can be given in a sitting position, the main thing is that you as comfortable as possible.

The practitioner hand positions are held in a sequence of positions for several minutes.

A full session usually takes 1 to 1½ hours.

Reiki may have the following effects:

An improvement in the feeling of overall well-being
An improved sense of self
Feelings of relaxation
