Common FAQs

4 / How will I feel after a reiki session?

Every person who tries reiki has a different experience. Your experience from session
to session can vary as well. Many people report feeling a sense of calm in their bodies.

Others report reduced pain or a clearer mind. Some people say they notice old
symptoms resurfacing in a sort of “healing reaction,” but those symptoms pass quickly.

5 / What should I wear?

Wear something that you will be comfortable in. Loose clothes are recommended.
Don’t wear anything restricting.

6 / Which conditions respond to reiki?

Many people turn to reiki to relieve stress and anxiety. Reiki therapy can help support
the body’s natural healing mechanisms. Some healthcare professionals think that reiki
helps reduce the side effects of drugs and radiation and may even reduce or eliminate
the need for pain medications.

1 / What is reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese form of stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. The
idea is that energy flows from the practitioner’s hands into the client. It’s that energy
that creates the relaxation and healing effect.
Reiki derives from the Japanese words rei, meaning “universal,” and ki, which refers to
the vital life force energy that flows through all living things.

2 / What happens during a reiki session?

Your practitioner will invite you into a private room and ask you about any particular
issues you would like to address. Then you will lie fully clothed on a massage table or sit
in a chair. In most cases, the practitioner will ask you to take a few deep, relaxing
breaths before the session starts. A typical session runs between 30 and 60 minutes
during which practitioners gently place their hands on or slightly above your body as
they travel from head to toes (or toes to head) with the intention of moving energy.

3 / What can I expect to feel during a reiki session?

During the session, you might notice a warming sensation in certain areas. In other
areas, you might not notice anything at all. Even if you come in with a particular
problem area, you may experience a sense of relaxation that affects your whole body.
You might even fall asleep during the session!

7 / Is there anyone who should avoid reiki?

No. It’s a gentle therapy that’s safe for anyone, including babies and seniors.

8 / What Religion is Reiki? I have a specific religious practice; will Reiki go against what I believe?

Reiki has no Religion. Reiki is usually associated with healing. Many practitioners of
Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism, Islam, Shintoism, and Buddhism embrace it for spiritual
healing. Both Reiki and spirituality focus on self-care. One way to think of Reiki is as a
spiritual practice that complements any particular faith to promote physical and
emotional healing.

9 / Should I eat before my session?

Eating before your session will not interfere with the healing process. Coming into a
session hungry can interfere with your being able to relax. Don’t eat anything that will
make you bloated or uncomfortable. But do eat if you’re hungry.

10 / Can I bring my child/children to my session

No. Unless the session is for the child/children. There is no one to watch the children
during a session. To get the best out of the session, complete relaxation is key. This can
be difficult if a child is crying or needs your attention.
