Frequently Asked Questions
What to expect during a Reiki session?
Before we start the reiki treatment, I'll answer any questions that you might have and discuss what you'd like your reiki treatment to be focused on. If you don't have a specific intention for the treatment that's okay. Reiki always works for your highest and best.
During a Reiki treatment, Reiki will work on all levels - physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual, clearing and strengthening your aura, chakras, and meridians. Most people prefer to receive reiki laying down. If you're not able to lay down, you may also sit in a chair. Unlike massage, you can keep your clothes on. There is usually relaxing music playing unless the recipient prefers to receive the reiki treatment in silence.
Reiki is a touch therapy. I will use my hands to lightly touch and hold my hands over various places on your body.
At the end of your session, we will talk about how you are feeling, and what you experienced while receiving Reiki. I will also share any experiences or sensations that I received during your Reiki session that will be supportive for your healing.
Are there any side effects from a Reiki treatment?
When receiving reiki during a treatment people often experience warmth and tingling sensations wherever the practitioners hands are placed, although some get no particular sensations but simply feel calm and relaxed. Some people will experience seeing colors, dreams or visons, or have old memories arise during or after the session and most experience a wonderful feeling of peace and radiance afterward. Some people do get quite emotional during or just after a reiki treatment, so tears or laughter are common, and some find that their body shakes or their arms or legs suddenly jerk. These reactions are quite normal, and the body needs to throw off the negative energy which has been encountered.
The benefits of Reiki can be enjoyed without necessarily feeling any of these sensations. Most people achieve a very deep state of relaxation during a treatment, which allows physical, emotional and mental stress to leave the body. Reiki balances and works on four levels- physical, emotional, mental and spiritual and as it flows through the person it adjusts to the recipient so that each person receives exactly what he or she needs at that time.
How often should I receive Reiki?
I always recommend my clients to use their intuition on whether they should book another session or purchasing a package. It's common to not notice much during the first session. Reiki works cumulatively, so the more reiki sessions you have the deeper the healing one will receive.
Where does Reiki come from?
Reiki comes from a higher power. Depending on what you are happy to accept- God, Source, the Universe or you can think of it as part of your Soul or Spirit or Higher Self that you can access to help you.
How does the distant Reiki session work?
You’ll schedule a session via the online calendar. I recommend picking a time and place where you won’t be disturbed so you can fully relax. I’ll message you before your session to clarify the intentions for the session and answer any questions. All you have to do is be willing to receive reiki. I’ll send reiki for the duration of the session, and I’ll message you when I’m done via email. If there’s any insights or messages that will support you with your healing, I will include that in the email.
How does Reiki work at a distance?
Healing energy is sent across time and space and received by the client. The illusion of time and space can be altered at will with practice. Quantum physics has revealed that time is fluid and flows forward and backward. A distant healing energy does not travel, it is simply sent, received and transmitted.
When an energy healer facilitates a distant healing, they will alter their perception about time and space. With intention and attention they will connect to the clients energy field and facilitate the energy healing.
