Reiki is a non-invasive gentle energy healing approach using universal life force energy (Rei-Ki) through the laying of the hands on the body and the body's energy centres, also known as chakras. It helps to heal and balance all levels of the body – physical, emotional and spiritual. Reiki is not affiliated with a particular religion, however, has been practiced for thousands of years. The purpose of a Reiki treatment is to help ease tension, stress, anxiety and support the body in facilitating its own healing process.
For your session, you will be fully clothed and your practitioner will apply light touch, as well as hands-off techniques where the hands are hovering close to the body. Your practitioner will move through the standard Reiki hand positions, but may also work on different areas that require some attention as well. As a recipient, you may feel the practitioner's hands are very warm, perhaps notice your body is warmer or may even get colder, experience tingling sensations, or simply find your point of relaxation.
Every practitioner will be different in the techniques they use and the style in which they apply them. You may need several visits to complete your overall treatment. Often people have ongoing visits for more deep rooted conditions and/or because they are using Reiki as a preventative tool.

Preparing For Your Session
Once a beneficial plan has been established between you and your practitioner, you will lay on the table completely clothed. Your practitioner will make any necessary adjustments to the placement of pillows and/or towels.
Your comfort during the treatment session is important, and for that reason, you may wear what you feel comfortable in. Most people choose to wear loose fitting/non-binding clothing (i.e.jogging pants and a t-shirt) so your body will not be restricted during your treatment, thus getting the most out of your session.
During Your Session
During the session it is best to remain quiet to gain the full effects of the treatment. It is important, however, to let your practitioner know if at any time you are uncomfortable. You should be able to feel the practitioner working with you; there may be times where you do not feel the practitioner’s hands on you and that is perfectly normal. Communication is key to getting the most benefit out of your experience.
Also, please let your practitioner know if you are feeling chilled or if you are too warm. If at any time you are not comfortable with the session, you always reserve the right to suggest that the practitioner make a change for you to be more comfortable, or even end the session early. As an additional note, keeping comfortable and relaxed is an integral part of any therapy.
***Please be cautious when getting off the treatment table***
