What happens in a Reiki session?
During a Reiki session, the practitioner places their hands on or just above a client's body. The practitioner conducts universal energy from their arms, and out through their hands where it flows into the client's body. During the Reiki session the practitioner does not rely on their own personal energy, rather they are conduits for focusing the energy from the world around them. We are born with the innate intelligence of Reiki and it illuminates our body mind, stimulating balance and growth. Over time however, habits and choices that do not serve our highest good can stifle that flow of energy resulting in a loss of vitality and eventually imbalance.
How is Reiki different than massage?
Massage is the rubbing and kneading of muscles and joints of the body with the hands, especially to relieve tension or pain. Reiki is transferring energy from the hands to the client with just touch.
Will the Reiki practitioner touch the client?
This is a personal choice and should be discussed prior to the Reiki session. Reiki is performed in most cases with touch while there are locations where the Reiki practitioner's hands will only hover above the body. If the client prefers to not have the practitioner touch them at all, please discuss this prior to the session.
