What can I expect during an IN PERSON healing?

It is important to note at first that everybodys experience is different when they receive a reiki healing and each individual healing you receive will feel unique.

You will lay on a standard massage table but you remain fully clothed and also covered in a warm blanket so you feel very secure and comfortable.
For around 40 minutes you close your eyes and surrender to your experience, you are required to do nothing but relax! I will place my hands on each of your chakra points; your crown, third eye, throat (I hover my hands over this space so as not to have you feel like you are being choked), heart, solar plexus, sacral (lower abdominal) and base (hips, knees, ankles and soles of feet).

During the healing you may experience all, some or none of the following:
– heat or cold over the places that my hands are placed
– tingling or pins and needles
– a feeling of being pulled or a rushing feeling
– coughing, sneezing, hiccups, snoring or burping
– crying or laughing
– a deep sense of relaxation or feeling like you are in a meditative state. It is perfectly ok if you fall asleep!
– emotional responses such as joy, relief, sadness, grief may also come to the surface

All of these are completely normal responses to the healing energy as is not feeling anything, there is no right or wrong way to respond to the energy. Of course if at anytime you feel uncomfortable you can ask me stop and the treatment will be ceased immediately.

Before and after the actual healing we spend some time talking about what you hope to get out of the healing, what your intentions for the healing are, if you have any specific needs you would like focused on and afterwards, how you felt and what the healing brought forward for you. All the notes I take during the healing session are compiled and emailed to you in a full report within 48 hours of your healing so you can read back through and really digest what your healing shifted for you.

What can I expect during a DISTANCE healing?

The experience of a distance healing is similar to an in person healing in that you may experience the same physical and emotional responses however your energy force is tapped in to by me without needing to be with you physically. Energy is not limited by time and space. Just like our mobile phones use an unseen signal to reach each other I can contact you via your unseen energy force. You are not required to stop what you are doing at the appointed time and do anything special unless you feel like you want to. You are welcome to go about your day or if you feel like it you can spend the appointed time relaxing, meditating or whatever feels right. I set the intention during a distance reiki for the healing energy to be received by you at the most appropriate time so you can “call it in” when you feel ready to sit with it.

On my end, I call in your energy force and use a proxy (a pillow) in place of your physical body. I then again run through all the chakra points channelling the energy as it needs. A full report is again sent to you within 48 hours of your healing.

What can reiki help me with
The benefits of reiki are numerous and reiki is used all over the world to aid with all sorts of physical, mental and emotional needs.

Some of the things reiki can assist with are:
– bringing about a sense of deep relaxation
– improving sleep
– can help relieve physical aches and pains such as muscle soreness and tenderness as well as headaches and even sinus blockages
– Gives you a boost of energy if you are feeling fatigued
– Helps reduce stress, anxiety and depression
– Over time it can assist in helping reduce chronic problems
– Improves concentration and clarity

Is Reiki safe?
Yes. Reiki is one of the safest healing modalities on the planet in that the reiki energy works only for your highest will and good. It brings about only what will benefit you and does no harm. It may shift things in the short term that you don’t realise need shifting or don’t feel like you wanted/needing shifting but in the long term it is for your benefit. A reiki also cannot be given without your consent.

Can children receive reiki?
Yes! Children can absolutely benefit from a reiki healing. Reiki can assist children with sleep, concentration, emotional stability and more. Children are always welcome to receive a healing in person if you like but if they are unlikely to lie still for 40 minutes of feel uncomfortable with a stranger than a distance healing is perfectly fine.
