The method of receiving Reiki is simple. The recipient remains fully clothed and lies on a couch or sits in a chair, (if you are unable to lie on a couch) and relaxes.
I start by leading you into a relaxing state by playing relaxing music and giving you relaxing thoughts. Then I start with various hand positions around the recipients head, followed by a body scan where I have my hands about 4 inches above your body. I then gently place my hands in a series of non-intrusive positions on or near the body. There is no massage or manipulation. The whole person is treated rather than specific areas. The Reiki energy goes to where it is needed. Sessions last from 45 minutes to an hour.
The recipient decides whether they want hands on, or hands off treatment.
Each person experiences Reiki differently depending on their individual needs at the time. Clients may or may not feel sensations during Reiki treatment. Benefits reported recipients include deep relaxation promoting a calm, peaceful sense of well being on all levels.
Some people feel sensations of heat, tingling, or experience seeing colours whilst others can have an emotional response, indicating that shifts of energy are taking place, allowing harmony to be restored.
The relaxing nature of Reiki can be very helpful to people especially at difficult times in their lives. We can all feel overwhlemed or disconnected, sometimes there is a real sense of isolation, both emotionally and spiritually. Reiki treatments can bring feelings of peace, centredness and an ability to cope better with challenges of life.
Reiki energy flushes energy through your meridians to clear any blockages that cause you problems such as stress, anxiety, aches, pains etc. This assists the body's self healing.
As running water smoothes the jagged edges of a rock until it is small enough to roll away, Reiki flows to the areas of need, soothing pain and supporting the body's natural ability to self heal
