The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means ‘universal’ and Ki which is ‘life force Chakra-Manenergy’. So Reiki literally means ‘universal life force energy’.

Reiki is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by the laying on of hands, and is based on the idea that flowing through our bodies is life force energy, and it is this energy that causes us to be alive. If one’s life force energy is low and unbalanced then we are more likely to get ill or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement.

Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit – creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Treatment is centred around chakras which are specific areas of the body – energy points which have colours associated with them, and these can become slowed-down and blocked.  Reiki helps restore the energy and get the chakras spinning again!

At Evoke Holistic Therapy, you are offered Reiki whilst lying comfortably, fully clothed, on a therapy couch, in a calm and comforting environment.

Although Reiki is complementary to medical and therapeutic treatments as it aids relaxation, promotes healing and relieves side effects, it is not intended to be a replacement for any medical treatment that you are receiving from a doctor or other health care professional.
