What is Reiki and What to Expect
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the evidence that "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
You’ll be instructed to lie down on a treatment table or mat. I will cover you with a blanket.
Usually soft, relaxing music will be playing in the background. For the most part there won’t be any talking during the session, but you can feel free to let me know if there’s something you need to feel more comfortable or to share what you’re experiencing.
I will move my hands around your body. They may touch you lightly or just above your body.
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. You may feel nothing at all. Your experiences may become deeper the more you continue with Reiki.
How to Prepare for Your Appointment
Wear clean, loose-fitting, comfortable clothing. You may wish to wear natural fabrics such as cotton, linen, or silk. 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.
