Reiki (pronounced “ray-key”) is a complementary therapy that promotes deep relaxation and natural healing.  It originated in Japan in the early 1900's and was developed by Mikao Usui.  It works by using energy (also known as chi/ki or prana) to heal you on many levels - physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. It is the same energy that is worked with in Acupuncture, Shiatsu, Tai Chi and Yoga.

As a holistic therapy, Reiki treats the cause of the problem and not just the presenting condition. This means that it can help with a wide range of conditions including stress, anxiety and sleep problems to name but a few.
