At your first session, you will be asked to fill out intake and consent forms whilst the practitioner explains briefly what the treatment involves. As there is no massage or manipulation in a pure Reiki session, you will not be asked to remove any clothing other than any items which may restrict your comfort, such as your coat and shoes.
Once you are ready, you will be asked to lie on a therapy bed or sit on a chair with your eyes closed. The practitioner gently places their hands on or above you at certain points along the body. You may notice sensations such as heat, tingling or coolness under the practitioner’s hands as they move through the positions. This technique connects with the energy in your body and helps it to flow more freely. Relaxing music is played and aromatherapy candles can be used in the room to help enhance the experience. Sessions normally last about an hour.
