Reiki Healing in London
Reiki healing is an exciting method of alternative therapy. The Japanse practice has been developed over many decades as a restorative technique to reduce stress, relax the body and mind, and promote self-healing.
Reiki healing is often described as a “hands-on” therapy or “palm healing”. The concept behind Reiki is that your therapist places their hands on certain areas of the body, allowing them to channel your natural life force energies. The treatment is all about harnessing your spirit, mindfulness and emotions, opening doorways to mental and physical wellness through expert touch.
While this kind of holistic therapy does have its sceptics, many people swear by the powerful effects Reiki healing has on their state of mind and sense of wellbeing. Many hospitals and mainstream treatment centres are even starting to offer Reiki massage to their patients, following positive feedback on its profound regenerative effects.
There are several ways that Reiki healing can be used to balance the body’s energies — depending on the outcome you are searching for. Common practices include:
- Infusion — The act of helping to imbue a person with more positive energy
- Extracting — Removal of negative or harmful energies and toxins
- Centring — Balancing the energies already present within the body.

What Are the Benefits of Reiki Healing?
Reiki healing is used extensively as an alternative therapy for a vast collection of health conditions. The process of empowering the mind and body by refocusing the natural energies and removing toxins means Reiki massage helps the person undergoing treatment enter a new spiritual plane. This new state allows them to begin to recover from many different ailments. Typically, people find Reiki healing can help with:
- Anxiety and stress
- Insomnia and other sleep disorders
- Fatigue and lack of energy
- Muscle tension, shoulder pain and headaches
However, as Reiki is all about providing your own body with the tools it needs to heal itself, the therapy has also been used by those suffering from more serious conditions, such as:
- Heart diseases
- Eating disorders
- Digestive disorders
While we do not advocate Reiki healing as a complete alternative to treatments provided by your doctor, it can help support these practices. Cancer Research UK even advocates Reiki as a helpful tool for cancer patients.

What Should You Expect from Your Reiki Healing Session?
Reiki healing is all about calmness and serenity. It is about channelling life energy beautifully and harmoniously to restore your mind, body and self. Reiki healing needs to take place in a tranquil and peaceful environment that promotes deep and intense relaxation. Your practitioner should choose an area without noise or distractions for the mind and spirit — although they may play soothing sounds or music to help create a calming atmosphere.
Reiki healing is carried out fully clothed, although you will likely take off your shoes and coat. The therapy is usually carried out while you lie flat on your back or stomach. However, you may also remain seated depending on the type of treatment. Sessions last for around 45-55 minutes. In your first session with a new practitioner, you will have a brief consultation where they ask you about your lifestyle and current health conditions. The answers you give will allow them to decide how to focus your energies best.
When the treatment begins, the Reiki therapist with either place their hands on you or hold them above your body. Instead of massaging these areas, they will keep their hands in a fixed place for between 2 to 5 minutes. This allows them to transfer and manipulate the energies in particular parts of your body. Your practitioner’s hands may feel warm to the touch, and your skin may tingle. Once they sense the transference of energy is complete, they will move to a different area of the body and carry out the same technique until the therapy session is complete.
People who have experienced Reiki healing often claim to feel refreshed, relaxed and energised after their therapy sessions. Your practitioner will likely recommend a few follow-up treatments. It’s common for a person to undertake at least three procedures before taking a break to harness the effects of their newfound life force energies.
