What to Expect
At your first session please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early so we can go over the session, discuss your goals, complete paperwork, etc.
One session is a great start! You will see for yourself how Reiki makes you feel, if it is relaxing, if you feel more clarity after the session. Many people, after trying one session, go on to have a series of sessions to progressively work on their current wellness goals.
If you haven’t done so already and have an acute condition, you should seek out a licensed medical professional as soon as possible. If you have a chronic or current issue, Reiki can be an excellent complement in your health or wellness plan.
During the session
I conduct my sessions in a dimly lit room, with soft ambient music and a lavender scented candle to relax my client.
Some clients, usually when it is there very first session, request that I talk and provide the information as it comes to me when I am working on each area. Returning clients usually like to relax and enjoy the time in silence and then like to be given the information at the very end. Please do not feel like you have to wait once we start, when you are on the table it is all about you and if you want to talk, then by all means you can.
If you have a questions or issue, then please DO speak up at any time during the session. I want the best for you and to make your session the best experience possible. I would also be happy to hear what your experience was like and how you feel after the session.
What does Reiki healing feel like?
At the practitioner’s hand placements, you may feel a very slight tingling, heat, or energy, or nothing at all. Each person responds to Reiki differently, the sensations or lack of are just how your particular body senses energy. You may feel at peace and calm in your mind or physically in general. It is different for all clients but deep relaxation is almost always felt. Reiki is so relaxing that sometimes clients may fall asleep during the session, but don’t worry though, you will still receive all of the benefits of the session, sleeping or awake.
Can I drive after my session?
Yes, after your session you will be in your full awake state, but possibly feel more relaxed and centered. A glass of water is offered to my clients after their session is completed. This allows you to bring yourself back to center and help with being present/grounded. We will then sit and discuss the session if you wish to do so. If you wish to leave immediately after your session, I ask that you drink water and go for a quick brisk walk to ensure you are fully awake and alert before driving.
After I leave my session, should I do anything special?
Please drink plenty of water to hydrate your body as your body’s energy system may be moving at a more optimum rate, so please care for yourself with water and healthy food during the day. It is beneficial to spend some quiet time that day or evening after your session to journal or to contemplate as you may have some insights and further mental clarity as your body continues to process the Reiki session.
Are there any medical conditions where I should not receive Reiki?
Reiki is a wonderful complement in a health or wellness plan. It supports your work with your primary care providers.
If I have the flu or a contagious disease should I have a Reiki session?
No. As a kindness to me, your practitioner, please wait until you are feeling better and not contagious before scheduling a session.
Can you have too much Reiki?
No, Reiki is beneficial and works with your body’s energy. In fact, your own energetic body is in control of how much Reiki it wants and needs during the session and utilizes it accordingly. Like breathing, you will comfortably take in as much as you need to support you.
