What to Expect During a Reiki Healing Session

What is Reiki? “Reiki” means “Universal Energy” in Japanese and is the life force that is everywhere and inside of everything. We are all born to be Reiki therapists, so you need not worry about whether or not you will have the ability to learn. Energy simply IS, and we as living embodiments of Light can all work and connect with this energy. Energy cannot be destroyed; it can only be transformed. Therefore, you and Reiki are the same, and like homeopathic medicine, like cures like.

What Does Reiki Do?

From time to time your energy may get thrown out of balance, whether it be from illness, stress, poor diet, or emotional issues. Reiki can help balance your life energy, and therefore help heal any self-induced or stress related disorder. Reiki works best in conjunction with your regular health practitioner, and can be administered by yourself or another practitioner as often as needed. Unlike modern or herbal medicine, you cannot overdose, become allergic, or reject Reiki, as energy IS nature. Energy is what we all are at the core level, and like water is a necessity of all life. Reiki can help heal injuries, speed the process of recovery, and even assist in resolving emotional issues. There are no limitations to Reiki.

Reiki can help alleviate suffering, whether it is of a physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual nature. This means that Reiki can heal. This statement is not a guarantee or a promise that someone will be relieved of any illness, as it is illegal and immoral to diagnose unless you are a medical doctor. However, in most cases Reiki does stimulate improvement whether used in conjunction with either traditional or holistic medicine, or even all by itself.

Sometimes people have unreasonable expectations of Reiki, both as clients and as practitioners. Reiki cannot promise to produce an instant miraculous cure of any condition. That does not mean I have not seen my share of spontaneous healing, but results like this are in the hands of the client and his or her ability to ask for healing, and not only the power of Reiki. Like other modalities, it can take time to see long-term results. Reiki works with you to restore energetic balance and repair things like blockages and tears in the energy field that create disease and unhappiness. However, don’t be surprised if it alleviates the headache that no aspirin could cure, calms chronic conditions, etc., sometimes in a short period of time.

What does Reiki “feel” like?

I get asked this a lot, and it differs from individual to individual. For the practitioner, usually a warm tingly sensation is felt in the hands, along with often a harmonious sensation inside of yourself. You may feel slightly dizzy, even feel as if you are swaying, and all of this is normal and natural. As you channel the energy of the Universe, it cleanses your own energy field, so you too get a Reiki treatment every time you offer Reiki…which is a good reason to perform Reiki as frequently as possible for all who ask. You can never get too much Reiki.

What happens during a session?

The client, fully clothed, lies on the treatment table. The practitioner's hands remain in a stationary position, gently on or slightly above the body through several positions from head to toe. Some practitioners do not use the prescribed hand positions, preferring to use a more intuitive approach. The private areas are worked on 4-6” above the body. There is no manipulation of the skin or tissue. Reiki is not massage nor is touch required. It can be performed by hovering hands over the body if desired. Individuals report feeling cold, others a pulsating heat, or a tingling sensation during a session, and most enter a calm, relaxed state.

In some, chronic or acute pain can diminish or completely vanish. Sometimes allergies and other infirmities completely disappear. It's different for each person. It's important to remember that, whatever is troubling us, 'we didn't get this way overnight’ and we won't 'recover overnight’, either. Reiki is not any more magical than any other modality or allopathic medicine. Healing takes commitment and it takes time... one moment at a time.

What can be expected after a session?

Directly after a Reiki session, you should allow yourself time to come fully back into your awareness. You may feel so relaxed that you are spaced-out. It is suggested to sit for 15 minutes and sip a cool glass of purified water. Becoming in touch with the soles of your feet and their placement on the floor also helps a great deal. Over the next little while, you may notice that you are detoxifying the waste that has built up in your system. You may want to allow more time in the ‘little room’ (the washroom) in the morning. You should increase your water and/or herbal tea intake so that the toxins are flushed out more readily. You may want to rest more, so allow time for that. Most people feel an immediate improvement in their level of pain. Energy and alertness increase daily and a feeling of overall well-being may be noticed.

How many sessions do I/the client need?

To begin with, three or four sessions over ten to fourteen days are recommended to remove entrenched blocks in your energy system then once a week or once every two weeks until the issue has resolved. You will begin to notice some improvement after the first session. Long-standing health issues are usually cleared up in five to six visits. Dis-ease generally begins in the energy field so if we keep our subtle bodies healthy using Reiki, and our physical bodies healthy with good nutrition and exercise, we should be able to remain active and whole.
