What to expect in a Reiki Healing session?
Before beginning the session I will discuss with you any specific areas you wish to be treated and then you will be asked to lay fully clothed on the treatment table, or if preferred, take a seat comfortably supported upright.
Reiki is offered through light, non-invasive touch with my hands placed and held on a series of locations on your head and front or back of your torso. The placement of the hands will never be intrusive or inappropriate, nor will there be any pressure. If you prefer there can be no touch involved at all and I can hold my hands just off the body throughout the treatment. Additional placements on the limbs can be done as needed (for example, if there is an injury or surgical scar), or an area you seek specific treatment.
What Might I Experience During and After a Session
The experience of Reiki is subjective, changeable, and sometimes very subtle. People often experience heat in the practitioner's hands, but sometimes the practitioner's hands feel refreshingly cool. Other common experiences are subtle pulsations where the practitioner's hands are placed or cascading waves of pulsations throughout the body.
People often comment how comforting they find the experience of Reiki to be, and some fall into a deep, sleeplike meditative state. Sometimes the experience of Reiki is dramatic, while for other people, the first session in particular may be uneventful, although they feel somehow better afterward. The most common experience is an almost immediate release of stress and a feeling of deep relaxation.
Reiki is cumulative and even people who don't notice much the first time usually have progressively deeper experiences if they continue. Besides the immediate experience of the Reiki, you may notice other changes that continue to unfold as the day goes on: perhaps stronger digestion, a sense of being more centered and poised and less reactive, and sleeping deeply that night.
A series of sessions is most beneficial. Four sessions is a traditional recommendation and gives you time to evaluate what benefits you are receiving. Feel free to discuss with me how best to space the sessions to suit your needs and your schedule.
