When I have a new client coming in for Reiki, I will always schedule in 15 minutes longer to explain what Reiki is and to understand what the client would like to get out of a Reiki treatment before starting the session.
Reiki is a Japanese Relaxation and Stress Reduction Technique that works with laying on hands on the client’s body and energy centers (chakras). The client will lie fully clothed on a massage table during the treatment. The Reiki practitioner will start placing his/her hands on several different positions, starting on the head and then moving down until the feet. While the Reiki practitioner places his/her hands on these energy centers, he/she can get a feeling for how the energy is flowing in there, if there are any imbalances or blockages and then start balancing each of these energy centers, by removing any energy blockages. Depending on how deep these energy imbalances are, several Reiki treatments will be recommended.
After the treatment I always discuss with my clients what I felt during the treatments and explain which areas needed more energy. Many times the clients will report the same, that they felt more energy in certain areas and less in others. Some report they felt tingling in some areas, or heat or coolness. Others might have emotions coming to the surface as they experience an emotional release. Others just report a general sense of overall well-being.
Reiki is equivalent to 4h of sleep, and many clients fall asleep during a treatment. After just one session many clients report that they felt profound relaxation during the treatment and the days after the treatment, as well as deeper sleep during the nights. A 1h treatment detoxes your organs up to 15% and many clients report having been much thirstier than usual the days following the treatment.
I always recommend a series of at least 3-5 treatments with 1 week intervals to get the most out of it and I explain that the more Reiki you get, the deeper you can go with the healing and balancing process.
