Reiki Treatments

What is a Reiki treatment like?

During a Reiki treatment, most people feel very relaxed and also energized. Some people feel marked improvement in physical and emotional problems after receiving a Reiki treatment.

We begin our Reiki session by going over some general information about Reiki. I will ask you whether there is anything you want me to be aware of or work more on and whether there are any areas where touch should be avoided. I will go over with you where I will be placing my hands during the treatment. If we have not worked together before, I will give you several brief new client forms to fill out.

Now we begin our treatment. You can lie down on your back or sit comfortably in a chair. You are fully clothed except you may want to remove your shoes. I invite you to close your eyes if that is comfortable for you. I do not generally talk during the treatment; however, I encourage you to let me know if you would like me to move on from any area, spend more time in any area, or if you are for any reason uncomfortable during the treatment.

With gentle music playing in the background, I put my hands above your eyes and then on the top of your head, forehead, above your neck, on the center of your chest where the heart is, on your solar plexus, your navel and above your hips and the base of your spine. I may also work on your shoulders, arms, hands, legs, and feet. If you are receiving a table treatment, I will invite you to turn over about halfway through the treatment and I'll repeat the same hand positions on the back of the body. Touch is never used on the front of the throat, breast area, or below the waist (in those areas I work several inches above the body). If you prefer, I can do the entire treatment without using touch, working several inches above your body.

These hand positions on the body correspond to the chakras, major energy centers of the body. During the treatment your body takes in healing life-force energy (Reiki) helping to correct any imbalances. You will likely feel very relaxed and may feel a sense of warmth or a "glowing" feeling. Reiki does not act as a cure for physical and emotional conditions but instead brings healing energy to your body, helping the body in its own natural healing process. Reiki does not involve any muscle manipulation, only light touch, and so it is safe for people of all ages, pregnant women, those with injuries or on medications, and also for pets.

At the end of the treatment, I will gently "brush out" the energy around your body from your head to your feet. This will just feel like air being fanned over you and is a way to help you wake up if you have fallen asleep. I will then let you know that the treatment is complete. Although Reiki is not diagnostic, I am happy to answer any general questions about the treatment as best I can. Anything we discuss during your session will be kept confidential.

In the days following a treatment, many clients continue to feel sensations of relaxation and peace.
