A 1 hour session is usually carried out with the recipient lying down, or sitting, in a comfortable and peaceful environment. There is no need to remove any clothing as Reiki energy passes easily through all materials, including plaster casts. The Practitioner places their hands gently on or over the body in multiple places; there is no massage or manipulation. Reiki may be experienced as a flow of energy, mild tingling, warmth, coolness, other sensations, or nothing at all.
The Practitioner will take a short case history prior to discussing treatment options. A treatment plan will be discussed and agreed with you, and reviewed as necessary. This will always be subject to your own preferences, and can be changed at any time in line with progress.
Reiki is non-invasive, gentle yet powerful, and may be used with confidence alongside orthodox healthcare. As such, it expands treatment options.
Reiki is not, however, an alternative to conventional medicine. You should therefore always consult a GP about acute or infectious conditions, and in connection with problems of an urgent nature.
