A Reiki session is an individualized experience that is relaxing, gentle, and safe for all. It involves
healing in a way that will empower you while respecting your feelings and choices.
When you meet with your practitioner for the first time you will be asked to read and acknowledge that
you understand your practitioner upholds the highest ethics and also that your personal information remains confidential and
is never shared. The practitioner is obligated to respect your confidentiality, be considerate of your needs, and answer your
questions. It is explained to you that Reiki does not promise to cure any illness or condition or replace
any medical treatments or therapies.The practitioner will begin by explaining Reiki to you and what she will be doing.
Your safety and comfort are always the main consideration. If at any time during the session you have any concerns
you should let your practitioner know so that appropriate adjustments can be made.
What to wear for your Reiki treatment:
- Comfortable, loose clothing
- Limited jewelry
- Shoes that
are easily removable outside of the treatment room
- No belts
perfumes or colognes
- Long hair should be pulled back for access to the neck
As you lay on a padded treatment table, fully clothed, soft music will play in the background.
Should you prefer quiet you can let your practitioner know; this is your session so be sure to speak up if
you have any concerns or requests. Treatments can also be done in a treatment chair. Your comfort and
needs are always the main consideration.
Prior to the treatment the practitioner
will feel your energy field by placing her hands over your body as she performs a scan known as a Byosen Scan.
This will often enable a skilled practitioner to tell where there are areas in your energy field that may need healing
before she begins the Reiki session. A subtle difference is felt in her hands at those areas. This procedure
makes the session much more beneficial.
She will then place her hands above or lightly
touching specific areas called chakras, places in the body where the energy flows through. This is never intrusive and you
will begin to feel very relaxed as you allow the energy to flow to the areas where it is most needed by your body.
It is at this stage that people usually begin to feel the stress lifting. It is a remarkable experience and for most
the effects are immediate while others may not notice anything for a few days. Reiki always works and the more open
you are the more intense your experience will be.
If you are having problems in specific areas your practitioner can concentrate more energy there.
Reiki always goes where it is needed most whether it is mental, physical, and/or spiritual. Many
clients report that they felt calm, relaxed, and sometimes even tingly during their session. They always look forward
to their next session. It is not uncommon for a client to present with pain and leave with none or very little. It is not uncommon for a client to report that they had seen bright colors or specific images. Reiki
is relaxing but you cannot assume that each session will be the same.
Each time you have a
session Reiki meets you where you are at that moment and then moves you from that place closer to your unique place of balance.
Acute conditions tend to balance faster than chronic conditions just as children and animals tend to respond faster than adults.
The Reiki practitioner cannot predict how much Reiki an individual gets in a session; we only know that the client draws
what they need at that time according to the ability of the practitioner to be a conduit for the energy.
No Apparent Cleansing Process
It is not necessary to have any kind of "symptoms"
during or even after a Reiki treatment. It does not infer that the treatment did not work since no two individuals have
the same energetic levels. Your energy is specific to you much like your fingerprint is.
Physical Cleansing Process
Reiki stimulates your natural healing ability and this may result in the clearings
becoming apparent. This means that you are becoming more open and that your energetic flow is building in strength;
this is similar to a clogged drain gradually opening up and clearing.
The Non-Physical Cleansing
This could be a clearer sense of purpose, a release of emotions, and a deeper connection to your
spiritual development. Reiki philosophy suggests that we must always heal our spirit first since clearing the body is
a natural and connected method that supports healthy living. A non-physical clearing may often be at the base of a physical
beneficial in keeping your energy from becoming stuck which can stop your emotional connection to life. Cleansing is
an innate process and one that is always at work. Receiving Reiki treatments does not mean that you will never get sick;
it encourages the body to remove impurities as it views the body in a constant state of imbalance. The
clearing process is constant, though not always perceptitible and not always recognized for what it is - a re-balancing of
the body. The more Reiki you are exposed to the deeper the cleansing process.
Always be compassionate to yourself, show respect to your body by listening
to it and avail yourself to other health care providers whenever you feel it might be beneficial. Reiki
is always there for you. I invite you to experience Reiki, a doorway to clarity and wholeness; your invitation to wellness.
