What happens during a Reiki treatment?

Reiki TreatmentA Reiki treatment takes about one hour. The session is usually done on a Reiki or massage table. It is recommended to wear loose comfortable clothing when being treated. The practitioner places his or her hands directly on the receiver as taught by Hawayo Takata. Reiki flows whenever there is good intention, so Mrs. Hawayo Takata used to say, “Hands on, Reiki on, hands off, Reiki off”.

Reiki works on the physical, emotional and mental levels and goes where it needs to go in the recipient’s body, usually leaving that person in a calm state of relaxation.

What does it feel like?

Most people feel deeply relaxed and peaceful when they receive a Reiki treatment. Some people feel warmth in their body others feel a cold tingly sensation, both of which are common examples of energy moving through the body. Often the hands of the Reiki practitioner get warm while they are giving a Reiki treatment.

Is it safe?

Reiki treatment can be received alongside conventional allopathic medical treatment and as part of a holistic treatment plan. There are no known contra-indications to receiving a Reiki treatment meaning it is considered a safe and low-risk option for supporting people through difficulties.

If you would like to receive Reiki treatments to address a medical condition it is important to work in tandem with your other healthcare providers, and preferable that you let your healthcare providers know you are receiving Reiki treatments. Many allopathic doctors are now recognising the benefits of complementary healthcare options and support patients making informed and empowered choices about a combined treatment plan.
