Open your arms to change,
but don’t give up your values.
Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass,
it’s about learning how to dance in the rain.
Challenges are what make life interesting;
Overcoming them is what makes life meaningful. - Mark Twain
Courage is not having the strength to go on,
it’s going on when you don’t have the strength.
A simple smile
can light up someone’s lonely life.
A loving atmosphere in your home
is the foundation to your life.
Even if you are on the right track,
you’ll get run over if you just sit there...
Life may not lead you where you want,
but have faith and you are exactly where you were meant to be.
In the silence listen
and your true self will speak with you.
Dance as though no one is watching, Love as though you have never been hurt,
Sing as though no one can hear you, Live as though Heaven is on earth.
Not all the darkness in the World
can put out the light of one small candle.
Kind words can be short and easy to speak,
but their echoes are truly endless.
Happiness is a voyage,
not a destination.
The best and most beautiful things in the world can’t be seen or touched.
They must be felt by the heart.
Reiki (pronounced Ray key) is a Japanese word that means Universal Life Energy. It is the energy that sustains all life. In 1922 a Japanese gentleman by the name of Dr Mikao Usui re-discovered a method of connecting to a healing energy called Reiki. This energy which is primarily used for the well-being of the self can also be transmitted to others.
Reiki energy is transmitted through the hands of the healer, who will then move their hands to different positions on the body. Most of these positions correspond with the Chakra System.
Reiki can help to boost your energy system and is excellent for those suffering a great deal of emotional or mental stress. It can help to remove blockages from ones life and can be focused on any particular problem areas.
Reiki is a very versatile, gentle and effective form of healing therapy which can help you to bring balance and harmony back into your life.
During a Reiki session you will be asked to lie on a therapy couch where the therapist will explain what happens during a treatment. You do not have to remove any clothing except for your shoes.
Many people ask what should they feel during a treatment, and the answer is that everyone is different. Some people feel heat, tingling, waves of energy surrounding their body, some see vivid colours, feel warm and nurtured, some even fall asleep. Whatever you feel will be right for you at that time.
At the end of the treatment the therapist will let you know that the session has ended and there will be some time for discussion.
We usually recommend three treatments to give the Reiki time to re-balance your energy system and allow your body to start its healing process.
Each session lasts approximately 1 hour but can go on for longer if required.
We also offer Usui Reiki Training to all levels. Please refer to the Training Courses page.
