REIKI (pronounced Ray-Key) is a very simple yet profound hands on healing technique rediscovered in the early 20th century by Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist and Scholar, and was used by him as a complementary therapy for the treatment of physical, emotional and mental diseases.
Reiki is a Japanese word which means Rei – universal, and Ki – Life Force. ‘Rei’ is the universal knowledge, present everywhere, ‘Ki’ is the energy that gives life to all living things and which can be activated for the purpose of healing.
Through the laying of hands on or over the body, Reiki allows your own body's natural healing capacity to function more strongly, and allows the body and its energetic systems to heal itself naturally, and to release unnecessary and non-beneficial influences on the system.
A Reiki treatment normally takes place in silence, and with your eyes closed. Just watch your thoughts and relax. The only items you need to remove are your shoes.

INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE is a treatment which has come from the Ayurveda, a system of preventive medicine and health care, taking account of mind, body and spirit, that developed in India more than 5,000 years ago. The word Ayurveda comes from two Sanskrit root words: Ayus – life, and Veda – knowledge or science. Originally it was almost exclusively concerned with massage of the head and hair follicles, although over time it has developed, incorporating massage and manipulation of the face, scalp, neck, upper back, shoulders and upper arms. The Hindi word for head massage is Champi and aspects of the treatment have had a long tradition in Indian families.
