What is Reiki?

Reiki, (pronounced Ray-key) is an ancient system of natural healing involving the laying on of hands and is probably thousands of years old. It is a belief that the technique, widely used initially by Tibetan monks over 2300 years ago, was re-discovered in the 1800’s by Mikao Usui. It was through his dedication and experiences that he spent the rest of his life using and teaching the healing power of Reiki.

The Usui Natural Healing System of Reiki - Usui Shiki Ryoho is a very simple, though powerful, healing technique that is easily given and received by all.

Reiki can be defined as Universal Life Force Energy - And is a pure form of healing

Reiki heals all that is living and has life force including:- Animals, people, plants, flowers, insects, vegetables etc.  and can be used to bless and invigorate all that is not, such as crystals, a meal, letters etc..

How does Reiki Heal?

Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the physical body, in doing so Reiki clears, aligns and heals energy pathways allowing the life force to flow in a normal and healthy way. When Reiki is introduced to a living body the energy radiates through the cells reversing the polarity of dis-eased cells healing them completely. Cells that are beyond repair have to leave the body, cells are excreted through water mechanisms, through the skin, through the bowels and bladder, and perhaps crying therefore water is required following treatment to replenish the body and aid in cellular regeneration the basis of all healing.

What can be Treated?

Reiki is both powerful and gentle. In its long history of use, it has aided in healing virtually every known illness and injury, including serious problems like multiple sclerosis, heart disease, cancer, skin problems, cuts, bruises, headache, cold. flu, sore throat, sun burn, fatigue, insomnia, impotence, infertility,poor memory, asthma, and many more. It is always beneficial and also works to improve the effectiveness of all other types of therapy. Reiki will improve the results of other types of medical treatment acting to reduce negative side effects, shorten healing time, reduce or eliminate pain, reduce stress and help create optimism.

Your Therapist: Fay Bailey


My background is in Midwifery, Nursing and Teaching, A bit of a scientist, and always a sceptic. Just 13 years ago I was designing and developing the teaching and training needs for 6,500 multidisciplinary staff at a major Hospital Trust. Then one day serious illness struck me down, and I found myself very sick indeed, and with two young children on board

I know this may sound like a cliché but someone took me to a Healer and gradually bit by bit with the help of Reiki and Reflexology I crawled my way back to health. When I got fitter I got back into teaching at a local college very part time. It was then that I answered the call of the Universe and became a Reiki Healer and Reflexologist. I obtained my Reiki Mastership (for the second time) in Egypt and was attuned in the King's Chamber in the Great Pyramid at Giza

I am a Reiki Master Teacher, Advanced Reflexologist, NLP Master Practitioner, Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy, a Hopi Ear Candle and Indian Head Massage tutor and therapist.
