What happens during a Reiki healing session?
The Reiki energy is channeled through the practitioner’s hands and into the clients’ body by very light touch, or the hands can be held an inch or so above the body. Reiki treats holistically and can be used alongside conventional medicine/medication, expanding treatment options. Reiki healing is not however an alternative to conventional medicine, always consult your GP about acute infections and problems.
A session is usually carried out with the client lying down, or sitting in a comfortable and peaceful environment. There is no need to remove any clothing (maybe just shoes and coat). Reiki maybe experienced as a flow of energy, you may feel warmth, or cold, experience tingling sensations as energy passes through the body, or feel no sensations what so ever, everyone is different, you may even fall asleep. The session is carried out with no talking (a few questions will be asked before the first session) and if agreeable with the client, relaxing music can be played. Any treatment can be enhanced if you can rest for a while afterwards and drink plenty of water to aid the detoxification process. Be responsive to your body’s needs and allow the energy to continue its work in the days following the session.
When should I have Reiki?
Reiki encourages relaxation for the mind and body and can help after having surgery and on wounds, speeding up the body’s healing process. It can help the to body repair itself during and after illness and is excellent for stress relief and relaxation, promoting inner harmony and balance.
It is great for pregnant women and one of the few holistic therapies safe to have during pregnancy. It can help to relieve the morning sickness stage as well as helping with the relief of aches, pains, backache, swollen feet and ankles, it may even help you to get a good night’s sleep and will benefit your growing baby. It has been known to induce labour at the end of a pregnancy, so once you reach 40 weeks, give it a try. (I gave myself Reiki healing during both of my pregnancies and both my children were very calm babies and slept very well). Reiki is also great for Babies, helping with painful colic and teething. Sometimes babies can be stressed for no apparent reason, Reiki will help babies to relax and sleep. Reiki for children and teenagers could help with any form of stress for example exam stress and nerves, growing pains and help the body repair itself after illness.

Usually 1 hour. Babies and Children may not need a full hour.
Some people may only need a one-off session to make a difference, however a course of regular treatments may be more effective, for example to help during or after a period of illness.
