What is Reiki

Reiki is a complementary therapy, derived from two Japanese words meaning Rei “Gods Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki refers to “life force energy”. Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion, with this in mind Reiki can be defined as “spiritually guided life force energy.”


The Benefits of Reiki

In today’s society, Reiki is considered a useful simple, natural and safe method for promoting relaxation, feelings of peace, security and well-being thereby promoting a balanced lifestyle. This may prevent the likelihood of succumbing to everyday illness and effects of modern day stress.


Reiki may also be used in conjunction with other medical interventions or other therapeutic techniques to help promote recovery. A balanced state of mind promotes vitality and a greater ability to cope with potentially difficult events.

Reiki at The No1 Pain Relief Clinic

It is a very gentle and grounding technique that helps to promote the holistic self into a state of sublime relaxation and euphoria thereby helping to:


  • Relax the body and mind to facilitate healing

  • Improve feelings of well-being

  • Relieve inner tension and stress

  • Stimulate slower breathing

  • Promote the release of endorphins

  • Reduce feelings of negativity, anxiety and depression

  • Assist to induce relaxation and sleep

How it works

A Reiki treatment is typically based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch through the hands or near the body: to encourage the natural healing processes of the patient’s body to promote physical and emotional well-being. A typical Reiki treatment may feel like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you although it is an individualised experience that is relaxing, gentle and safe for all.

My frozen shoulder symptoms came on rather quickly – soon becoming painful and restricting.


Fortunately for me, Nick was able to give me instant relief and exercises, based on the very latest research that have proved highly effective – my shoulder is greatly improved and well on the way to full recovery – chuffed – thanks Nick.

The Science

Physiologically it has been suggested that caring touch helps the flow of blood and lymph around the body. Studies have shown that touch can aid to decrease blood pressure and heart rate, soothe nerves and decrease tension, promoting relaxation and a state of well-being. 



FAQ  (Frequently asked Questions).


What happens in a Reiki treatment?

A Reiki treatment usually begins with a discussion regarding your health. Generally this would include any specific problems you have, and a discussion of your work, family, eating and exercise patterns. On your first visit this may take up a substantial part of the time. Thereafter on subsequent visits the discussion is generally much briefer and focused based on any changes that have taken place.


This is followed by the Reiki treatment which usually lasts about 45 minutes. At the end of the Reiki treatment there will be sufficient time to let the effects begin to settle in and talk about the treatment. 


What should I wear?

During a Reiki treatment patients remain fully clothed. You should wear ideally loose fitting clothing, preferably with long sleeves. It is good to have a sweat-shirt or similar, for warmth, and not to rely on a tee-shirt (body-temperature often drops a little during the treatment).


As you lay on a padded treatment table, fully clothed, soft music will play in the background. Should you prefer quiet you can let your therapist know;  this is your session so be sure to speak up if you have any concerns or requests.  Treatments can also be done in a treatment chair.  Your comfort and needs are always the main consideration.
