What to expect
in a Reiki session?
A Reiki session can last anywhere from about 30-90 minutes long and can be performed in person or remote. During a Reiki session, the client will rest comfortably seated or laying on their back. Unlike massage therapy, a client is always fully clothed though comfortable clothing is recommended. During the initial session prior to beginning, a discussion will take place describing the session to the client and discussing particular problems or issues they are experiencing. Light- or no- touch is used at specific locations on the body.
Are there contraindications to receiving Reiki?
Reiki is a wonderful complement to western medicine and supports the work you’re doing with your doctor. It does not take the place of consulting with a medical professionall. When in doubt, consult your physician.
Can I receive Reiki as treatment for COVID-19?
As a courtesy to any wellness practitioner, you should stay home if you have symptoms of Flu or any infectious disease. Contact your primary care physician for guidance and testing.
Can you receive too much Reiki?
Your body will only take on as much reiki as it needs, but some cleansing responses are common and may require more time between treatments. This should be discussed with your reiki practitioner.
What does Reiki feel like?
Healing is a different experience for everyone but receiving the Reiki energy is generally described as warmth, tingling, sense of contentment, or nothing at all.
Is there any physical contact?
There doesn’t need to be and it is your preference. During the pandemic many practitioners have transitioned to remote sessions only and they work just as well as in-person sessions. You do not need to be touched to receive the Reiki energy. It is all around us.
