Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A TREATMENT?
The therapist will usually give a short explanation of what the treatment involves (if it's not clear or you're not sure about something, don't be afraid to ask). You may be asked some details, including a brief medical history. You will be asked to lie down (or sit if this is easier for you) but will not be asked to remove any clothing except for things which could restrict your breathing or comfort, such as shoes or spectacles. Reiki will go through clothing, blankets, or even a plaster cast if necessary!
Treatment is given by your practitioner placing their hands gently on your body in a pre-determined sequence of hand positions, spending several minutes holding each position. These hand positions are non-intrusive and cover both the front and back of the body and are sometimes varied to give Reiki to areas where it is specifically needed. If you find any of the hand positions uncomfortable please tell the practitioner. The touch should be gentle, light and comfortable; there is no massage or manipulation. You may feel sensations such as heat, tingling, coolness or throbbing under the practitioners' hands or in other parts of your body, or you may feel very little. Many people experience a sense of well being and relaxation, or fall asleep; sometimes a treatment is energizing. There is no right or wrong way to experience Reiki. The treatment will normally last at least 1 hour.
WILL WE DIAGNOSE WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU ?
Reiki practitioners are not trained in diagnosis and will not offer any diagnosis or prognosis. However, certain 'things' may make themselves known during a treatment.
If you are concerned about any symptoms afterwards you should see your GP.
HOW WILL I FEEL AFTER THE TREATMENT ?
Most people feel relaxed and at peace after a Reiki treatment, or you may feel tired but equally you may feel full of beans, every session is unique and outcomes are always different. Reiki can also stir up emotions as part of the healing process and some people experience what is known as a healing reaction, such as headache or flu-like symptoms, some clients find their emotions getting the better of them and you may even cry or find yourself a little distraught, don’t be concerned about this it is all perfectly normal and remember you’re not the first to experience it. These are all normally only of short duration. If you are concerned about a reaction to a treatment talk to your therapist.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
This varies from person to person. In general, most problems will take time - healing is a process rather than an event. Acute problems generally heal faster than chronic ones and if your problem is of long standing it may require further treatments over a longer period of time. Your therapist may suggest a number of treatments close together or 4 treatments on consecutive days. However, you should feel free to make the decision about the spacing of treatments yourself. You are ultimately responsible for your own health and wellbeing, and after all ... who knows their body better than you ??.
