We begin our Reiki Therapy session by going over some general information about Reiki. I will ask you whether there is anything you want me to be aware of or work more on and whether there are any areas where touch should be avoided. I will go over with you where I will be placing my hands during the treatment. If we have not worked together before, I will give you several brief new client forms to fill out.
Now I begin your treatment. You can lie down on your back or sit comfortably in a chair. You are fully clothed excep for your shoes. I invite you to close your eyes if that is comfortable for you. I do not generally talk during the treatment; however, I encourage you to let me know if you would like me to move on from any area, spend more time in any area, or if you are for any reason uncomfortable during the treatment.
With gentle music playing in the background, I put my hands above your eyes and then on the top of your head, forehead, above your neck, on the center of your chest where the heart is, on your solar plexus, your navel and above your hips and the base of your spine. I may also work on your shoulders, arms, hands, legs, and feet. . Touch is never used on the breast area, or below the waist (in those areas I work several inches above the body). If you prefer, I can do the entire treatment without using touch, working several inches above your body.
These hand positions on the body correspond to the chakras, major energy centers of the body. During the treatment your body takes in healing life-force energy (Reiki) helping to correct any imbalances. During a Reiki Therapy Treatment most people feel very relaxed, peaceful and rejuvenated.
A majority of Reiki Therapy recipients feel a noticeable improvement in physical and emotional problems after receiving Reiki Therapy Treatments.
At the end of the treatment, I will gently "brush out" the energy around your body from your head to your feet. This will just feel like air being fanned over you and is a way to help you wake up if you have fallen asleep. I will then let you know that the treatment is complete. Although Reiki is not diagnostic, I am happy to answer any general questions about the treatment as best I can. Anything we discuss during your session will be kept confidential.
After the Treatment I will leave you to rest for a few minutes until you are ready to get up. You should drink plenty of water after a Reiki treatment in order to help flush out any toxins that have been released by the Reiki energies. Energy therapy treatment can produce changes and emotional processing. Sometimes, due to the release of toxins and energetic blocks, a recipient will briefly feel worse after a treatment rather than better This is a rare side effect and if it does occur you should contact the practitioner and possibly go in for another treatment or two right away to complete the healing process the first treatment began.
Reiki does not act as a cure for physical and emotional conditions but instead brings healing energy to your body, helping the body in its own natural healing process. The goal of Reiki is to help restore the body's energy balance and enhance its natural ability to heal itself. Reiki does not involve any muscle manipulation, only light touch, and so it is safe for people of all ages, pregnant women, those with injuries or on medications, and also for pets.
In the days following a treatment, many clients continue to feel sensations of relaxation and peace. There is no limit to the number of Reiki treatments a person may receive. Reiki cannot harm you; only help you.
