What Is A Reiki Session Like?
A Reiki session may be experienced long distance or in person. During an in-person session, most people lie on a table fully clothed to receive a Reiki treatment although you can receive it in almost any setting, in a chair or hospital bed and through casts and bandages. Little or no pressure is applied and usually no oils are used. The practitioner will place their hands on or above your head, shoulders, back, chest, stomach and limbs. Practitioners usually follow a series of hand positions, but may place their hands on or above an injury or other area of discomfort. Universal energy flows from the Divine source through the practitioner to you. You will receive the amount of energy you need to bring your mind and body into balance.
Each person experiences Reiki in their own unique way and no two sessions for the same person are alike. Most people experience deep relaxation. You may also feel tingling, pulsing, a feeling of warmth and comfort, or you may fall asleep. Some recipients say they feel little during the session, but afterwards enjoy a sense of calm and well-being, and a deep restful sleep. Some people may experience powerful sensations or emotions during or after a session. Every experience is different, but something good always comes from a Reiki session.
