Reiki Healing Session

During a Reiki treatment the practitioner transmits Reiki energy through his hands. The recipient either lies down on a massage table or sits in a chair. A Reiki healing session can refill the organism with life force energy. It strengthens the body’s natural self-healing mechanisms and detoxification.

Reiki healing can be done on a private session or as a distance healing session. It is benefical to everyone, regardless of gender and age.

The Reiki therapist doesn’t heal, he just transmits the Reiki energy. The patient is the one who heals himself through the energy.

What Is Reiki?

Reiki is a hands-on healing method with its roots in Japanese origin. The practitioner transmits this healing energy through his hands to the recipient in order to encourage physical, emotional and mental healing. Read more

What Happens On a Reiki Healing Session?

The Reiki recipient remains fully clothed and can receive a Reiki treatment seated in a chair or lying on a couch.

The Reiki practitioner places their hands onto the person and the Reiki healing energy goes to where it is needed in the recipient’s body, mind and spirit.

I always remind my patients to avoid alcohol before and after the treatment. It is like taking a pill with alcohol. It is not safe. If you want to go out, I suggest you to choose another day for your session.

At the beginning of the Reiki session I learn about recipient’s situation and needs. Since I use a lot of different techniques, therefore I apply them during the treatment to have better results. If recipient wants to receive only Reiki energy, that’s possible, too.

A Reiki healing session lasts approximately 50-60 minutes, depending on the the patient’s need.

Distance Reiki Healing Session

If you can’t come for a private session to me, you can have a distance healing session.

For example, you are receiving the Reiki energy in New York and I’m sending you the Reiki energy from Paris.

During the session, you are lying or sitting, your choice. Make sure that you keep your arms down by your sides and your legs aren’t crossed.

If you can, prepare yourself for the healing session. I usually send a link to some meditation music that helps you to relax.

A distance Reiki healing session lasts at least 30 minutes, depending on the the patient’s need. It is recommended to relax 5-10 minutes before and after the Reiki session. Take a few moments to collect yourself before getting off the table.

Why Our Body Needs Reiki Energy?

It’s the body’s natural ability to heal and regenerate from within. When we are healthy, life force energy flows in a natural way in our body.

When we are stressed, we got sick sooner or later and we start consuming our own energy resources.

Reiki healing can help us to raise our self-awareness and to become more confident about allowing positive changes in our lives as we can become happier and healthier.

How Can a Reiki Healing Session Help You?

One of the most important is prevention.

Reiki energy can decrease pain and ease sore muscles. It calms the emotions.

It strengthens the body’s natural self-healing mechanisms, detoxification and it dissolves energy blockages.

It counteracts the side effects of medicines and medical treatments. It speeds up the regeneration after surgery and the healing of broken bones.

What Can You Expect in a Reiki Treatment?

Recipients can expect to experience a wide range of feelings during their session.

Reiki does not hurt but the recipient may feel mental, emotional, physical or spiritual shifts.

Reiki tends to feel warm and profoundly relaxing, and the Reiki practitioner’s hands may become very hot. Often the patient will experience extreme cold at the position of your hands while you feel intense heat.

I’m glad that I did the session. It was very good and I was really relaxed. The best part is the sensation after the session, I felt lighter and happier, it was a great day full of energy. Read what Stéphanie from Lyon wrote about Reiki healing

Some people describe a floating sensation and some see lights or colors. Some experience tingling, waves of energy, hot or cold temperature changes. Some people may even fall asleep.

There is no expected experience, a Reiki session is unique for each individual who receives it. If the patient experiences nothing, explain to them that the Reiki energy works on a subconscious level and results may appear in the following days or weeks.

The frequency of the treatments depends on the patient’s case.

Learn It And Give Yourself a Reiki Treatment Whenever You Want

Many people, who had some Reiki sessions and were more open, participated in a Reiki course. So they can refill those areas where the life force energy is low. More about Reiki Level 1 Course
