What can I expect from a treatment?
A treatment generally consists of laying on hands or of keeping them just a few inches above the body at various positions, starting with the feet, knees, upper body, throat, forehead, and ending with the head area. This however may vary according to the patient's particular needs and the flow of Reiki energy. A complete Reiki treatment takes about 45-60 minutes, although shorter, more focused sessions are also possible. The client remains fully clothed during the session. I advise clients to drink plenty of water, especially after a treatment.
How does it work?
People, animals, plants, and even innate objects are surrounded and permeated by a subtle electromagnetic field, also known as the aura. According to Chinese medicine, Acupuncture and Acupressure points are connected by meridians, or paths through which this life energy (also known as 'chi' or 'qi') flows. And according to Yoga Physiology, there are seven main chakras or energy centers in the body which generate the subtle energy body. These various traditions and practices are based on the same assumption: that the human body is seen and treated primarily holistically as a unified energy system. The classical Western view is that the body is a mere bio-chemical system.
If someone's energy body is strong, their health will be strong; if it is weakened or even damaged, they may experience some sort of tension or discomfort which may manifest as dis-ease or pain. Reiki helps to clear meridians and to balance chakras. It thus facilitates a freer and more natural flow of energy in the body.
How does it feel?
During a Reiki treatment, the client will receive this energy to strengthen and heal their own energy field. This often feels deeply relaxing, although experiences vary. Sometimes people feel a temperature change, tingling, or other similar sensations, or simply doze off. By the end of the treatment the client will likely feel relaxed, refreshed, energized, and more grounded.
