What is reiki?


Reiki is a spiritual healing method first practised in Japan, which involves the placing of hands on various non-invasive parts of the body.

The universal energy (or “Reiki” in Japanese) passes through the body by the laying on of hands.

Reiki naturally restores and rebalances your mind and body, thereby promoting physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing.

Reiki is a complementary, natural healing energy that works on you as a person. Please note that it does not treat any specific areas of unease, unrest, or illness.

Reiki is safe to use. Moreover, it does not in any way interfere with traditional medical treatments.

What to expect from your reiki session at Feet First Reflexology


Before your treatment begins

Each reiki treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.

At the initial consultation, I will take some general personal information. I will ask you how you are feeling physically and emotionally.

Please be assured that I work to the highest standards of confidentiality and comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR).

You will remain fully clothed throughout the treatment. It is therefore advisable to wear loose-fitting comfortable clothes.

During your treatment

At the beginning of the treatment I will ask you to relax back on the fully adjustable treatment couch.

I will then gently place my hands on your feet through which I will channel healing energies into your body so that your body may rebalance and repair itself.

Please note that it is not possible to direct the reiki energy to specific parts of your body. It will naturally find its way to where it is needed most.

Your reiki treatment is very relaxing. You may even find it a spiritual experience regardless of whether you are a person of faith or not.

At the end of your treatment

At the end of each session, I will offer you a chilled bottle of mineral water. You will also have the opportunity to talk with me about the treatment you have received.

I will give you plenty of time after the treatment to collect your thoughts and your belongings.

When you leave you will continue to feel relaxed and rebalanced and ready to resume the rest of your day.

Combine reiki with reflexology at Feet First

To fully re-energise you can combine reiki with reflexology.

This combined treatment starts with a standard 60-minute reflexology and ends with a 30-minute reiki session to leave you feeling re-energised.

If you are having reflexology and reiki in a single appointment, please allow a full 2 hours for your visit.
