In a Reiki Treatment, Reiki practitioner channels Reiki to the client. The most common ways of channeling Reiki is via the palms of the practitioner. When Reiki is channeled keeping the palms on the body or the aura, it is a Hands-on healing session, when the Reiki is channeled to someone far away it is a Distant healing session.
A Reiki treatment will always be a very individual experience. Bear in mind that Reiki will always go where it is needed and will focus on areas that need treatment, even if you are not aware of them. When the Reiki practitioner places their hands on your body you may feel a heat. This may be a gentle warmth or sometimes quite intense heat. Sometimes you will experience a pulsating feeling coming from the hands of the practitioner. The energy may sometimes feel quite “buzzy”, or you may not feel anything much at all. There are no rights or wrongs; everyone perceives energy differently and of course Reiki will come through to you in a way that is right for your needs.
A Reiki treatment is a unique experience for each individual. Treatment may be very relaxing and your may drift off to sleep for the duration, alternatively you may find the treatment invigorating and may leave feeling energized. Some people prefer to use their Reiki treatment as a quiet time while some remain wide-awake and like to chat normally. As a result of Reiki treatments, you can experience an amazing sense of alignment within, peace of mind and increased wellness. With this renewed "self", you can work towards your life goals easily and effectively.
Both the client and the Reiki practitioner needs to be in the same location for hands-on healing sessions. The client lays on a comfortable treatment table or be seated in a comfortable chair in the healing room. Reiki practitioner will peacefully and quietly help reinforce the energy levels of the client transferring the Reiki through their hands. During the sessions, the practitioner will be placing the hands on the body or 2-3 inches above the body - on the aura - depending on the social norms and the client's expectations. The session would generally begin with a discussion on what the areas that the client feels that they needs improving.
Hands-on healing session usually goes from 45 minutes to 1 hour and a consultation session of 15 minutes to 30 minutes before the healing. So set aside 1.5 hours when you are coming for a hands-on healing session.
Distant healing is one of the beauties of Reiki, where the Reiki Practitioner and the client can be in two different locations. This is because the Reiki energy can travel beyond time and space.
Client will be seated in a meditative state in a silent area while the Reiki Practitioner is channeling Reiki. It is important that the client is in an open and receptive mind set to accept the benefits of rebalancing.
Reiki practitioner intends for Reiki energy to freely flow to the client or the situation in concern. Practitioner feels the flow of energy in their palms and able to interpret the sensations and other information that comes during a treatment.
Distant healing session usually goes from 30 minutes to 45 minutes.
