WHAT IS A REIKI TREATMENT?
Treatment begins with the practitioner placing hands on or over the recipient in various positions. The hands are usually kept in a position for a few minutes before moving to the next position. In general, the treatment covers the areas of the head, the front and back of the torso, the knees, and feet.
I like to incorporate a traditional Japanese scanning technique called "Byosen scanning" during my treatments. I will begin with Byosen scanning of the recipient's energy body to perceive areas of disturbances which allows me to know which area of the body needs more Reiki. I allow intuition and energy to guide my hands. The intuitive approach leads to individual positions being treated for shorter or longer periods.
WHAT WILL YOU EXPERIENCE?
Often the recipient feels heat or coolness, pins-and-needles, tingling, pulsing, vibrational buzzing, electrical sparks, numbness, throbbing, itchiness, and sleepiness, or may see colors, hear sounds, and in some cases may experience nothing. This does not necessarily mean you are not receiving Reiki. Reiki has an intelligence of its own and it will travel to the area of the recipient's mind, body, and spirit that is in need of healing. The recipient frequently feels sleepy and yawns repeatedly as incoming Reiki energies soothe and calm pent-up emotional tension and stress.
A state of "deep relaxation," combined with a feeling of
"well-being" is usually the most noticeable effect of the treatment.
During a treatment many may experience profound emotional releases. As Reiki begins to flow through the body it will go to those areas that are in need of healing, gently lifting and removing the blockages that are stopping one from becoming their "true self." In doing so, Reiki may bring repressed emotional or physical life experiences to the surface that may seem to be uncomfortable for the individual to handle especially if they are not ready to let it go. This may be a challenge for some, but in my experience each person who comes to me is at a point in their lives where they are ready to let go of some negative aspect(s) of their lives and are ready for the positive changes. Then there are others who are not quite ready to let go and that's ok, maybe there is still a lesson the individual needs to learn from the experience.
Reiki is there to assist you in your healing journey and will always go to where it is needed and Reiki will always work for your highest and greatest good. Physical, emotional and mental releases that are brought to the surface during a session are the beginning of positive changes in creating a better version of yourself.
Each recipient experiences Reiki differently depending on their individual needs for healing.
While Reiki can bring long-term benefits and produce changes for you on many levels, it is not a substitute for medical treatment.
