What is a Reiki Session Like?
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 idea that an unseen “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 Reiki Practitioner will ask you what you would like to focus on during the Reiki session. You are fully clothed on a massage table. A pendulum will be used to read the flow of each of your seven energy centers (chakras). The Practitioner will lightly lay their hands on or above your body. Typical positions of the Practitioner’s hands are on your: head, shoulders, stomach, arms, legs, and feet (or you may prefer not to have touch). If you are not comfortable with touch, please notify the Practitioner to adjust the treatment. Your energy field (aura) will also be treated with Reiki.
All clients feel deep relaxation. Clients may feel warmth in specific areas, tingling, sensations of releasing, see colors, or experience lightness. After your Reiki session, drink plenty of water to wash away toxins released during the session. Let your body do whatever it needs – allow yourself quiet time or return to your life’s activities with a sense of wellness and increased energy.
Sessions are typically scheduled once a week or every 2 weeks. Each session is accumulative in maintaining the free flow of your energy centers. Healing is in layers occurring over time. No two sessions are alike. Various vibrational techniques are added to sessions such as: crystals, aura clearing, and healing attunements.
Note: Reiki therapy is “not” psychotherapy consultant.
