What to expect for Reiki Healing Session
1.) Is your first session the longest?
At your first session you should plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early so together we can go over the session, discuss your goals for the session, complete paperwork, etc.
2.) Is one session enough or will I need a series of sessions?
One session is a great start! You will see for yourself how Reiki makes you feel, if it is relaxing, if you feel more clarity after the session. Many people, after trying one session, go on to purchase a series of sessions to progressively work on their current wellness goals.
3.) Is Reiki for an acute condition or a chronic condition?
If you have an acute condition you should seek out a licensed medical professional immediately. If you have a chronic or current issue, Reiki can be an excellent complement in your health or wellness plan.
4.) What will I feel during the session?
Most clients feel a sense of relaxation and peace. The mind may feel calm and your physical body should feel relaxed. Reiki is so relaxing that sometimes clients may fall asleep during the session. Don’t worry though, you will still receive all of the benefits of the session, sleeping or awake.
5.) Is there talking during the session?
Usually a session is done without talking and the we may have soft ambient music playing in the background to aid in your relaxation. If you want to communicate something to your us during the session, such as if you are cold or too warm, if you would like them to adjust the music, if you are feeling a sensation you would like to discuss, if something feels uncomfortable for you, if you have a question or issue, then do speak up at any time during the session. We want the best for you and want to make your session the best experience possible. Also, your we will ask you after the session if there is anything you would like to share and you may do so at your option. This is good feedback for us to note for planning your next session.
6.) How long is a Reiki session?
A session is generally one hour. 90 minute sessions may be available in some cases.
7.) Will I be lying down on a massage table or sitting?
Reiki is usually performed on a client who is fully reclined comfortably on a massage table. It also may be performed on a client who is lying on a yoga mat (body to earth connection) If you have mobility or pain issues please communicate these to us so we can make you your most comfortable for the session.
8.) Am I clothed during my Reiki session?
Yes. Unlike a massage therapy session, you will be fully clothed. For a Reiki session, you will want to wear loose fitting comfortable clothing.
9.) Will the Reiki Practitioner’s hands touch me in any way?
At your option. Reiki may be done with a light gentle pressure static touch or the our hands may be a few inches/centimeters above your body at the hand positions with no actual touch. There are standard hand placements beginning at your head or feet, avoiding all sensitive body parts. Let us know prior to the session which you prefer, light touch or no touch.
