What to expect during your Reiki Session
Rei-ki are two Japanese words that translate to “spirit” and “energy flow” respectively. In essence, Reiki means spiritual life energy. It is a natural healing modality rediscovered in the early 1900s by a Japanese Shingon Buddhist named Mikao Usui.
Reiki uses energetic principles to promote healing by renewing and restoring the energy in the mind and body.
During a Reiki treatment you will lie comfortably on a massage table and the Reiki practitioner will place their hands on or near the body, to feel and allow the energy to flow. Most clients feel a sense of peace and relaxation during and after the treatment, while some clients may even fall asleep. Clients have shared that they also may feel a tingling, heat, or energy during a session; however it really varies person to person.
There isn’t much you need to do to prepare for a Reiki session. Relax, keep an open mind and wear comfortable clothing.
