WHAT IS REIKI?
Reiki is a safe, gentle, non-intrusive hands-on Japanese healing technique that uses spiritual energy to help treat physical, mental, and emotional ailments. It is a holistic system for balancing, healing, and harmonizing all aspects of body, mind, and soul. Reiki can be used as a complementary therapy to help with strengthening inner peace and wellness, spiritual growth, and activating the healing power within.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING YOUR SESSION?
When you meet with your practitioner, you will have a short introduction or chat about the process and your expectations or intentions. Feel free to let your practitioner know about any symptoms you want addressed or if there are places in the body on which you’d like them to focus. Also, let the practitioner know if you have any injuries or places that are sensitive to touch.
You’ll be instructed to lie down on a treatment table with relaxing music playing in the background. Typically, there won’t be any talking during the session, except a guided meditation from your practitioner. However, you can feel free to let your practitioner know if there’s something you need to feel more comfortable or to share what you’re experiencing.
The practitioner will move their hands around your body. They may touch you lightly or have their hands just above your body. Only what you are most comfortable with.
You may experience sensations in the body such as heat or tingling. Some people report seeing visualizations such as colors or pictures, or having memories appear. Try to allow whatever arises to pass without attaching too much meaning to it. Your experiences may become deeper the more you continue with reiki.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT
Wear clean, loose-fitted, comfortable clothing, as you will remain fully clothed during your session. Remove your shoes, jewelry, and glasses before your session, and keep your phone switched off or leave it behind.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER YOUR APPOINTMENT
Drink plenty of water after your session. Some people feel calm, peaceful, or energized. You may also feel tired. Try to book sessions on a day that you can relax.
