What Does a Reiki Treatment Feel Like?
Receiving Reiki is a very simple process, but usually produces quite profound effects. The Reiki treatment begins by you lying down on a treatment couch. You remain fully clothed, but you may be more comfortable if you remove your shoes, or a belt, or big earrings. You close your eyes and I will have some gentle, relaxing music playing in the background for you to listen to. I will gently rest my hands upon you, non-intrusively, in a series of positions from the crown of the head to the feet. In general, I use a mixture of ‘standard’ hand positions as well as working intuitively, which I allow the energy flowing through my hands to guide me to just the right combination of hand positions for you on that occasion.
Each hand position is held for a few minutes, sometimes longer, and during this time energy will flow into you, drawn according to your need, helping to balance your energy system. This can release stress, soothe pain, and promote your body’s natural ability to heal itself. As the energy flows, most people will feel warmth, or heat, or tingling from my hands. It is usually a very relaxing experience: some people fall asleep. Other sensations may include seeing coloured lights or feeling as if you are floating. Sometimes people have an “emotional release” – feeling quite emotional or tearful for a little while during the treatment – as emotional turmoil is brought to the surface to be released and dissipated.
While Reiki is very effective, it is not a miracle cure, and the effects of Reiki treatments tend to build up cumulatively. To experience the full benefit of Reiki I would recommend that you have four to six full Reiki treatments. In my experience, this number of sessions is usually enough to sort out stress, tension, anxiety, sleeplessness and some emotional problems; physical stuff can take a little longer, but not always. Reiki generally produces long-term beneficial changes, so you do not necessarily need to keep coming back for endless Reiki sessions. However, once you have felt how wonderful it feels, you may want to keep coming back and back! Some people decide to have regular ‘top-up’ sessions, whereas others might come for Reiki as and when they feel that they would benefit from another treatment.
No matter what your particular complaint, the general effect of a course of Reiki treatments seems to be to make you feel more ‘laid back’: more calm, less stressed and better able to cope. Reiki seems to boost energy levels, raise spirits, and make you feel more positive about things. Stressful situations seem to wash over you.
Reiki brings things back into balance.
