Complementary therapies such as Reiki and Crystal healing aim to promote improved health and well-being by encouraging deep relaxation. Your body has an amazing capacity to heal, but sometimes it needs help. Relaxation increases blood flow to the muscles and reduces wear and tear on the mind and body. Studies show that relaxation lowers the heart rate, boosts immunity and enables the body to thrive! Reiki and crystal healing can both help reduce stress-related issues. They help to calm down the nervous system allowing the body to function more efficiently. Put simply, we heal more readily when relaxed, and more slowly when stressed. Many conditions can be improved with the support of Reiki but especially when placing certain crystals on or around your body, these crystals are formed in the earth. They are mined in various countries from different levels within the ground. As such each one vibrates at its own unique frequency.
Reiki is a very gentle, relaxing, grounding and balancing healing technique. Everyone has energy around and within and if this energy is depleted, an individual is more likely to get sick or feel stressed. Reiki is a completely natural and soothing treatment and as energy flows from practitioner to client, tension is released, promoting relaxation and healing. As well as balancing energy, it can boost the immune system and promote a calm, peaceful sense of wellbeing.
As a complementary therapy, Reiki works effectively alongside orthodox healthcare and natural remedies, expanding treatment options. Reiki is being used in various settings including private practice, complementary therapy centres, GP surgeries, hospitals, hospices, cancer support groups, post-operative recovery, and in the care of the elderly.

HISTORY OF REIKI
Reiki is an ancient method of healing by attunement to Universal Energy and there is no belief system attached to it so it is available to everyone. It originated in Tibet but evolved in the 19th century into the healing technique we know now, from the experience of Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese monk.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A REIKI SESSION?
On your first visit, I will ask you questions about your medical history and current health before beginning the treatment. You remain fully clothed and can lie down on the treatment couch. I will generally place my hands above your body but sometimes may be drawn to place my hands on certain areas such as your head, feet, knees or shoulders but I will always gain permission from you before your treatment commences.
THE REIKI PRINCIPLES
Just for today I will live the attitude of gratitude.
Just for today I will not worry.
Just for today I will not anger.
Just for today I will do my work honestly. Just for today I will show love and respect for every living being.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
IF I'M ALREADY HAVING TREATMENT WHAT IS THE ROLE OF SOMETHING LIKE THIS? Reiki can help even when it is not the only help you need. For example, necessary surgery and medical procedures can be stressful and traumatic in themselves. As Reiki is so calming to the mind and body, many find that it tends to make us better able to receive, make the best of, and recover, from medical interventions.
I THINK I'M QUITE WELL. SO CAN REIKI/CHAKRA BALANCING OFFER ME ANYTHING? Many clients book Reiki/Chakra balancing to maintain good strength and health, as part of proactive self-care. This was Karen's own motivation in seeking out Reiki many years ago.
