Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy, an energy which is all around us.
Reiki is the name given to a system of natural healing which evolved in Japan from the experience and dedication of Dr Mikao Usui (d. 1926). Dr Usui was inspired to develop this healing system from ancient teachings after many years of study, research and meditation. Today Reiki continues to be taught by Reiki Masters who have trained in the tradition passed down from Master to student.
There is no belief system attached to Reiki so anyone can receive or learn to give a Reiki treatment, the only prerequisite is the desire to be healed.

Thermo-auricular Therapy or Hopi Ear Candles
Hopi Ear Candling is an ancient therapy, which was practiced by the North American Hopi Indians of Arizona, as a sacred ritual to cleanse and harmonise. Hopi translates to ‘peaceful people’.
When lit the candle creates a light chimney effect, massaging the ear drum and ear canal through vibration and warmth; drawing out wax and impurities; clearing the ear, sinuses and nose. This helps to balance the pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses, creating a lighter feeling in the ear and head. A soft crackling sound may be heard during the treatment as the candle burns.
