The Japanese word “Reiki” refers to a unique technique that is used for reducing stress. Ultimately used to relieve aches brought by too much stress, Reiki is also used to aid relaxation and healing not only of the person’s physical body but his or her soul and spirit as well.
Administered by “laying on hands,” this technique for healing is believed to be effective through the use of an invisible force of life energy that flows in every living and breathing individual.
In the concept of Reiki, it is believed that when the level of a person’s life force energy is incredibly low, he or she will likely to be stressed out more often and have a higher tendency to get sick or ill compared to those people with high level of life energy force.
In Reiki, it is also proven that those people who are living healthy, stress-free and happy lives possess high level of life force energy which enable them to have positive outlook in life. These people also have greater capability to face the challenges of everyday living.
Developed by Mikao Usui, a Japanese Tendai Buddhist in the year 1922, Reiki has been a very popular form of relieving stress to people all over the world. Since its discovery, the technique Reiki has evolved in various forms and has been practiced by numerous Reiki masters across the globe.

” I’ve been having treatments with Sarah for three years and I’m a true convert. I have regular Reiki sessions and have also been known to have the odd Hot Stone Massage or Manicure and every time I feel a million dollars. Sarah is not only a great therapist physically, she is also a highly talented and perceptive healer. I was diagnosed with M.E. and went to Sarah for help and she has been inspirational right from the start. She has incredible insight and has a knack of getting to the heart and soul of the matter. Her help and support over the last few years have been a big factor in me beating M.E. – I would highly recommend her to anyone whether they are looking for relaxation, pampering, healing or a little of all three! ” A.T.
