During a treatment, the Reiki Practitioner places the hands on or over the client – and simply lets the Reiki energy flow.
It is generally assumed that the energy is not given by the practitioner, but rather drawn by the recipient while the practitioner becomes the conduit to channel this energy.
Lying comfortably on a therapy couch, the client remains fully clothed during the treatment. The practitioner’s hands may be placed on the head, or on various position near the Chakras along the torso. Often, the hands are placed intuitively over different areas.
Rei Ki energy has a will of its own, it will flow wherever it is needed to aid the body’s innate healing abilities.
Receiving a treatment is normally a deeply relaxing experience, balancing and harmonizing the body, mind and Spirit, while giving comfort and peace.
Some clients experience a meditative state where they see colours or images, or embark on an “inner spiritual journey” your experience is right for you.
A client may experience suppressed emotions or problems being released, or old memories revoked. Discussing these with the practitioner often leads to becoming aware of the underlying causes of a physical, mental, or emotional problem.
In some cases, symptoms can increase for a short period when healing starts (This is known as a “healing crisis”) but this does not have to be the case.
If wished, the treatment can remain “hands-off” with the practitioner holding their hands about 10 cm above the client’s body
A full treatment normally lasts around 1 hour
