Which conditions respond well?

Many conditions can be improved with Reiki.

Reiki supports other treatments both conventional and complementary. It can often assist in reducing negative side-effects of medical treatment and medication.

For example, it may:

  • Boost the immune system
  • Release toxins
  • Relax the body
  • Encourage good circulation
  • Improve digestion
  • Calm the mind and emotions
  • Be useful when preparing for exams or stressful events
  • Help to bring a person's whole being back into harmony and balance.

Conditions that may benefit from Reiki include:

  • Muscular aches and sprains
  • Back & neck pain
  • Digestive problems - IBS
  • Post operative trauma
  • Tension and stress related
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Anxiety and phobias
  • Women's health issues
  • Menstrual pains and PMS
  • Pregnancy/labour/birth
  • Menopause
  • Infants' & children's health issues

For Children

Children usually love Reiki and often respond very quickly to it. Sessions may be shorter than they would be for an adult.

For mental and emotional balance

Head Massage

Emotional problems such as anger, grief, anxiety, depression and fear respond well to Reiki, as do compulsive and addictive behaviour patterns. Reiki could be helpful in cases of drug and alcohol dependency.

Stress, tension and fatigue

Reiki works well on migraines, sleeping disorders; anxiety and high blood pressure all of which may be stress related conditions.


Reiki may relieve acute pain. Chronic, more deep-seated conditions may respond well but may need a series of consecutive treatments (e.g., four or more days in a row) to get to the root of the problem.

Accidents, operations and trauma

Reiki encourages recovery from accidents, operations and traumatic experiences.

At the end of person's Life

In the case of terminal illness, there may not be enough time to reverse the process of the disease. Reiki may help enhance the quality of time left and bring peace.


A cure can never be guaranteed with any form of medical treatment or healing method, but Reiki treatments will help, whether in a physical way or an emotional way.

In some cases a physical problem will be caused by an emotional trauma and once that is healed the physical problems often improve.

How many sessions will I need?

Most chronic conditions benefit from a course of treatment. We can discuss this at your initial consultation; however most people usually feel both benefit and relaxation after one treatment.
