Is Reiki safe for everyone?

Reiki is a safe and gentle form of energy healing that can be used by people of all ages and conditions. It is a non-invasive treatment that involves the practitioner placing their hands on or near the client's body in various positions to channel the universal life force energy and balance the client's energy field. It is often used as a complementary therapy to support traditional medical treatments, and can be beneficial for a wide range of physical, emotional and mental conditions, including stress, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, recovery from surgery, addictions, trauma recovery and both physical and emotional; imbalances in the body. 

Reiki is considered safe for all ages and can be used alongside other forms of treatment. It must be noted that it should not used as a substitute for medical treatment where this is necessary, but, as a complementary therapy, that is used in conjunction with traditional medical treatments to enhance their effectiveness. It is also a great alternative for people who are looking for a non-invasive and non-pharmacological way to improve their overall well-being. The National Occupational Standards (NOS), established by Skills for Health to develop and maintain the skills, knowledge and understanding needed by healthcare practitioners in the UK, states for Reiki practitioners, "that there are no known contra-indications to Reiki when used on its own"

Reiki can be given to babies, children, adults, the elderly, pregnant women, people with mental illness and addictions and those undergoing medical treatments and surgeries.

Reiki treatments can be done in person or remotely (distance healing), which makes it accessible to people who may not be able to visit a practitioner in person due to location or physical impairments. Remote healing is just as effective as in-person healing sessions and can be tailored to fit a clients specific needs or time zone should they be in a different country to the Reiki practitioner. For in person treatments, should a client be unable to lie on the treatment couch for any reason, it is also possible to tailor the treatment to their specific needs, either by sitting on a chair or reclining on a couch.
