FAQs


COMMON QUESTIONS:

  • People always ask when they should book another session. We always say, you will know. Reiki will guide you. If you are up against a specific, weighty challenge, deep past trauma or disease, we find Reiki to be most effective in several, successive days (2-3 treatments a week over a 3-4 week window or more.) Then treatments can be spread out further apart as healing continues and you feel your body begin to release and balance. Disease builds in the body over time, especially after lingering in our energetic bodies, sometimes over a lifetime! It can take time to clear out these old debilitating energies. And, if we live or work in draining environments, more frequent sessions are recommended to help to keep the energy flowing at a peak rate until we are able to address those places that drain us. Reiki is your guide, your friend and deeply loves you. You can trust its timing, wisdom, guidance and protection.

Can Reiki replace traditional treatments?

NO. Reiki treatment should not be used as a substitute for the consultation of a physician or a psychotherapist. Reiki complements other types of medical and therapeutic treatments, and it can increase the efficacy of other types of healing. If you’re already in good health, though, regular Reiki treatments can enhance your ability to respond to stress and serve as a form of preventive medicine. Reiki is so wonderful at reducing stress, and anxiety…it’s a great way to have an overall sense of well-being and calm.

What happens during a Reiki session?

Reiki sessions typically last about 50 to 60 minutes. During a session, you’ll lie on a massage table fully clothed, as your Reiki practitioner gently places their hands, palms down, just above your body in specific energy locations. They use a series of 12 to 15 different hand positions.

“The length of time that the practitioner leaves their hands in each position is determined by the flow of energy through their hands at each location,”…Reiki differs from other therapies in that there is no pressure, or physical manipulation involved. This makes it especially wonderful for those with fibromyalgia. It’s also helpful for clients with dementia, clients going through cancer treatments, those with RA, and anyone who wants to feel a sense of calmness, and relaxation. Reiki can be very rejuvenating as balancing your energy creates an amazing sense of well-being…which for some…it may have been a good bit since they have felt so at ease. It can take several sessions to feel the effects, and adding chakra balancing in addition to Reiki is often suggested depending on the client. 

What does Reiki feel like? 

You may experience the energy in the form of sensations like heat, tingling, or pulsing where the Reiki practitioner has placed their hands above you. Sometimes, people feel sensations moving throughout the body, while other people do not perceive any change at all. Some people experience sudden tears, crying, joy, an overall lightness physically and emotionally, and some experience no physical symptoms at all.

Most people feel very relaxed and peaceful during Reiki sessions. Many clients fall asleep during the process. Every experience is unique to each individual. You never need to worry if reiki is going to the right area/areas for you…Reiki always goes where it is needed.

Lastly, I’d love to share some of the benefits of Reiki healing sessions:

  • First and foremost, a Reiki session offers an incredibly relaxing experience that aids in a positive state of consciousness and spiritual experience.
  • It is a great addition to most forms of therapy. This is why I do offer a spiritual direction and Reiki combo session. The Reiki and spiritual direction work with one another for an enhanced experience and further spiritual healing.
  • Historically Reiki has been used to help aid in the healing of every illness and injury imaginable.
  • We use it in our home for allergies, common colds, teething babes, headaches, bruises, sunburns, and sore muscle.
  • We also use it to help reduce anxiety, and depression – which has been highly effective.
  • A Reiki session can provide clarity, a sense of grounding when you are feeling like you have no control, and help in balancing your mind, body and spirit.
