Our bodies are enlivened by a magnificent system of complex chemical reactions and electrical currents – we are vibrating, energetic beings. We are energy and we are surrounded by energy. So often the cumulative demands of our daily lives begin to tax us, leaving us with little time to calm, to focus, to relax, and restore. Reiki provides us with an access point to connect with the universal energy that surrounds us which supports, deep relaxation and rest. This enhances our body’s natural ability to heal.
What to Expect During Your Reiki Session:
Before we begin your Reiki treatment, we will spend some time discussing your intentions for the session, areas where you would like to focus, and any questions that you may have. Reiki is administered through the hands of the Reiki Practitioner. The practitioner’s hands may be placed gently on the body or maybe held just above the body – this is the choice of the client and we will discuss your preference before we start your treatment. During a Reiki session, the body is not manipulated as it is during massage or acupressure. Clients remain fully clothed with shoes often removed. During the Reiki treatment, soft music will be playing or you may opt for quiet. In most cases, you will be laying on a table on your back. If lying down isn’t comfortable or getting up on a table is difficult, you may also choose to sit in a chair.
Everyone’s experience during a Reiki session is different. Many people report a sense of deep relaxation, calm, warmth, and well-being. Some report seeing colors or shapes, while other people fall asleep. Some people may even experience an emotional release. The experience is unique to each individual and may vary from treatment to treatment.
