We will first spend some time relaxing, talking about you and your brief case history and possible areas of discomfort that you want to be treated. I will explain to you what the session involves. Then you will lie down comfortably to enjoy a very relaxing session in a very nice, quiet environment. There is no need to remove any clothing as Reiki energy passes easily through all materials, including plaster casts.
A Reiki session is non-diagnostic, non-interventionist, non-manipulative and no pressure is applied. Treatment is given by placing my hands gently on your body in a pre-determined sequence of hand positions, spending several minutes holding each position. The touch is gentle, light and comfortable.
You may feel sensations such as flow of energy, heat, tingling, coolness or throbbing under my hands or in other parts of your body, or you may feel very little. Many people experience a sense of well-being and relaxation, or fall asleep; sometimes a treatment is energizing. There is no right or wrong way to experience Reiki. An interesting study reported that recipients frequently feel that they are hovering in a threshold state of consciousness, simultaneously aware of their surroundings and deeply indrawn.
The treatment will last an hour, or a bit longer if it is required. Besides the immediate experience of the Reiki, you may notice other changes that continue to unfold as the day goes on: perhaps stronger digestion, a sense of being more centred and poised and less reactive, and sleeping deeply that night.
After our first session a treatment plan will be discussed and agreed with you, and reviewed as necessary. This will always be subject to your own preferences, and can be changed at any time in line with progress. This varies from person to person. In general, most problems will take time - healing is a process rather than an event. Acute problems generally heal faster than chronic ones and if your problem is of long standing it may require treatments over a longer period of time.
Regular contact with the energy of Reiki, at least once a month, helps in efficient flow of energy, enabling the harmony and balance in all our body levels. Through regular contact with the Reiki energy well-being is achieved at all levels and self-development which allows you to be at your optimum to deal with all aspects of life.
