When I first meet you I will ask you to complete an Intake form that includes a short health and lifestyle questionnaire. The purpose of this is to collect background information about you. Because of this, a first appointment will last 10-15 minutes longer.
A full Reiki treatment generally lasts for around 60 minutes, sometimes longer depending upon need - I like to make sure that enough energy has been received before I complete a treatment.
When having a Reiki treatment, there is no need to remove any clothing apart from outdoor coat and shoes. With a full treatment, you can relax lying down on a treatment table, and I will gently place my hands in a series of non-intrusive positions on your body, or I may feel the need to work within your aura, and sometimes a mixture of both - I never touch any personal areas. I will check to make sure that your chakra and meridian flows are balanced and if they are not, I will channel energy where needed so that the flow of energy is uninterrupted and balanced.
Alternatively, you can be seated on a chair if you prefer, your treatment will be equally as effective, and can be quite useful if you are experiencing back problems so need the energy to be targeted specifically there, and also if actually getting onto a treatment table is difficult for you.
The way I usually work if you have a back problem is to seat you comfortably, and ask you to lean forward onto the treatment table and place your head and shoulders onto pillows for comfort so that I can then target your back directly.
Reiki can also be sent - sounds completely whacky doesn't it! One of the symbols that is part of the attunement process at Level 2 allows that Reiki can be sent through time and space, and although this sounds totally bizarre, it works brilliantly! I work using a teddy bear as a surrogate, and for the duration of the treatment, this bear then becomes you.
By having a distance treatment you will still have full benefit from the effects of the Reiki. This can be a very effective and convenient way of receiving Reiki, no travelling to and from appointments, can make it easier to find time during your day, plus very useful if you are away from home on holiday or for work and want to continue with your treatments rather than delaying until you return. Also, very reassuring during the Covid Pandemic with lock-downs happening, having to isolate or shield, and just the uncertainty of having contact with other people because it means that you can still receive Reiki from the safety of your own home.
Although not absolutely essential, the best way to have a distance treatment is when you are at rest, so a convenient time can be agreed when you are able to do this.
Having a distance treatment is similar to an in-person treatment, except instead of relaxing on a treatment table, you can lie on your own bed or sit on a comfy chair, and if you want to, listen to some soothing music - I can recommend some for you if you are not sure. Treatments usually last for around an hour, but sometimes longer depending upon how much energy you need.
I will still need you to complete an Intake Form, but I can email this to you to complete and return to me, or we can complete this during a telephone conversation prior to your first treatment.
I will ring and have a short chat just before I begin the treatment, and then again once I have finished so that I can give you feedback about what I have noticed during the treatment, see how you are feeling, and answer any questions that you may have. This also gives you the opportunity to share with me any sensations that you experienced, or anything else that you noticed while having your treatment.
Why not give it a go!
Each person experiences Reiki differently depending on their individual needs at the time; Reiki energy will always do what it is needed to do. Benefits reported by recipients include feelings of deep relaxation, calm, and a peaceful sense of well-being. Most people I have worked with have drifted off into a very peaceful sleep, and have woken feeling refreshed whether this be an in-person or a distance treatment.
Reiki can help to deal with those challenging times that we all experience, bringing a calmness that can then in turn allow us to cope and feel less stressed. Used regularly over time, Reiki may help to promote a positive thought pattern that can then impact on choices made, and improve overall mood.
During a treatment some people feel sensations of heat, cold, tingling, pulsating or experience seeing blasts of intense colours, whilst others can have an emotional response. Some people have reported to me that they have visions, and one person told me of having the vision of being in a garden with flowers waving in the breeze but strangely enough I could actually smell their scent!
A lot of people notice a definite impact after having their treatment, while others find that changes are much more subtle and happen over the following few days ... and they are happening! Reiki continues to work really strongly for at least 2 to 3 days, and longer in a weaker form.
Some people feel nothing at all, and this is absolutely fine because Reiki energy will always flow to where it is needed, and although no sensation may have been experienced, the benefit of this beautiful energy will still have been received.
You may feel no different at all after having a treatment, but changes that are happening can be very subtle, and even though you feel that nothing has happened, Reiki will be working to support your own
From my experience, most people that haven't noticed anything during their treatment have found that they just feel different the day after but they can't always say in what way, just much better!
