What can I expect from a Reiki treatment? 24 May 2020
A Reiki treatment session lasts one hour and the fully clothed client lies on a massage table. The Reiki practitioner then holds her hands above the clients body or gently lays her hands on the clients body. The Reiki energy is automatically absorbed into the clients body which has a greatly beneficial effect. There is no standard experience of a Reiki treatment, but most of my clients find it deeply relaxing and they feel more peaceful afterwards.
When a client feels tired at the onset of a treatment they often feel more invigorated afterwards. During a treatment clients routinely report sensations of heat, coldness or tingling in their bodies. Some clients see flashes of colour, others are reminded of previous experiences as these are gently released, yet others feel nothing. This does not mean Reiki was not working, it means that it was working in a gentle manner.
