What is Reiki?

Reiki, pronounced 'ray-key', is a system of energy healing originating from Japan. The word Reiki itself translates to 'universal life energy' and is based on the belief that life energy flows through all living things. When this energy becomes disrupted or blocked, it is believed that stress and dis-ease follow. Reiki is also a spiritual practice which follows 5 precepts. It focuses on the here and now rather than looking to the past or searching in the future.

The 5 Reiki precepts are:

  • Just for today do not anger

  • Just for today do not worry

  • Just for today be grateful

  • Just for today honestly

  • Just for today be kind to all living things

Reiki is a mindful way to live and Reiki practitioners live by the precepts. Part of out practitioners spiritual practice is daily meditation and self healing.

How long is treatment? Reiki at Clarity Healing is offered in sessions of 30mins to 60mins. Before and after your treatment there will be a short time to discuss what you would like to achieve, how to tailor your treatment for your needs and to talk about your experiences. Depending on the reason for your treatment we may suggest a course of treatment and then some maintenance sessions. Reiki can be adapted to fit into your schedule as Reiki has no limits when it comes to time, place or distance. A distance treatment will feel similar to an in person hands off treatment. ​


Still not sure? The reason we feel so confident in offering Reiki is that even if you are sceptical about the treatment and the existence of Reiki, there is notable benefits to pausing and allowing yourself to be nurtured. By booking an appointment you are taking the time to look after yourself and have a practitioner listen to you. In our sessions we offer you a chance to talk about what's on your mind, you will then have up to an hours time where you can completely relax. The session is for you. It is your time, no one needs or wants anything from you. Our role is to ensure you are in a relaxing, comforting environment. You will be laying down under a snuggly blanket, perhaps a heated blanket switched on, the lights dimmed and with your choice of music and scent. Whilst offering the Reiki treatments the practitioner will be reciting positive thoughts and wishes for you (in their head). You may feel a comforting heat from their hands. Many clients often wonder if they have dosed off as they become completely and utterly relaxed. You see, so even if you don't believe in universal life energy. We hope you can see the benefits of completely relaxing your mind, body and spirit. ​ We look forward to welcoming you as a client and hope the treatment enables you on your wellness journey to achieve clarity. A clear body and a clear mind.
