Drop-In Reiki

Reiki is a process that induces a flow of beneficial, relaxing energy between the practitioner and the recipient. This enables the body’s natural resources to deal with imbalance or disease in the most appropriate way for the person.

It can be used for illness, stress or injury and can complement other treatments and therapies. It can also be effective in easing pain and improving the quality of life.

These sessions are available to patients and carers on a drop-in basis on Tuesdays between 10am and 2pm. The sessions are on a first come, first served basis and will last approximately 15 minutes.

If you would like a treatment please check availability at reception on the day.
