2 Reiki Treatments
What happens during a Reiki treatment?
During a Reiki treatment you will lie or sit comfortably and the Reiki practitioner will place their hands on or near your body, allowing the Reiki energy to flow to you. You do not need to remove any clothing except for coat and shoes.
How many treatments am I likely to need?
This depends on what you are hoping for from Reiki. As a natural healing method it is good to allow plenty of time for Reiki to have an effect, so a series of treatments is going to be more beneficial than a single treatment in most cases. We will discuss this at your first session and regularly review as you go through treatments.
What can I expect?
Reiki is a healing process that anyone can benefit from in the normal course of their life. Research using animals and even bacteria suggests it has the ability to reverse stress-induced conditions. It should not, however, be regarded as a cure for conditions. As a natural form of healing Reiki can support and enhance other forms of treatment. It has no contra-indications and is suitable for both people and animals. It can be given with hands on (touching) or hands off (non-touch). Most people find receiving it extremely relaxing and calming.
Can Reiki be used in conjunction with allopathic or conventional medicine?
Yes Reiki can be used safely in conjunction with allopathic or conventional medicine. It may help to speed up recovery times and reduce some uncomfortable symptoms, such as after surgery.
Can Reiki be combined with other forms of complementary medicine?
Reiki can complement many different forms of treatment and can often help smooth the healing process. For example after a chiropractic treatment people can sometimes feel stiff, a Reiki treatment will help a lot in releasing this discomfort. It also reported to work extremely well in conjunction with homoeopathy, acupuncture and counselling and can help support any healing process.
Is Reiki suitable for children?
Yes, with parental consent, Reiki is suitable for children under 16 as it is gentle and can be adapted to a child’s need for a shorter treatment.
Can Reiki help someone with a terminal illness?
People with a terminal illness often find Reiki helps them to feel calm and relaxed, reduces symptoms such as pain and enables them to prepare for death themselves and with their families.
Can you give Reiki to someone who is dying?
Yes, you can offer Reiki to a person who is dying and it has often been reported to reduce anxiety, bring calm and ease transition.
