FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese healing practice that uses your personal energy for self-healing.
- Is Reiki the same as a Massage?
No. A massage typically manipulates the muscles and surrounding tissues using physical force. Reiki uses energy which not only affects the muscles but it deeply penetrates every cell of the body. This energy is transmitted by lightly touching or holding the hands near the body. Although this is done without force, the client experiences deep relief and relaxation.
- Is Reiki a religion?
- What can I expect during a typical Reiki session?
Clients typically lay on a massage table but some sessions are given while a client is seated in a chair. The Reiki practitioner will gently place his or her hands on the client’s body typically using specific hand positions, such as the head, shoulders, stomach, feet, and back. The sessions last 30 or 60 minutes.
- Do I need to undress for a session ?
- What does Reiki feel like?
Reiki treatments vary from client to client. However, most clients feel deep relaxation and warmth as well as tingling and coolness. Sometimes the client experiences sensations in more than one area at a time (ex. feeling warmth in their shoulders and feet).
- What can be treated by Reiki?
Any condition or illness can benefit from Reiki. This includes headaches, back aches, pain, stress, sleep issues, colds, cancer, MS, Parkinson, Shingles, as well as pre- and post-surgery conditions. Reiki always helps and in some cases heal.
- Are there any side effects from a Reiki treatment?
Most clients feel relaxed after a treatment. However, most body work (like Reiki, massages or acupuncture), causes toxins that have been stored in the body to be released in the blood stream. Clients are encouraged to drink water after a treatment to avoid any headaches or stomach aches.
- Should someone stop seeing a regular doctor or psychologist in order to receive Reiki treatments?
No. Reiki is not a substitute for regular medical treatment. Reiki works in conjunction with medical and psychological treatment. Reiki works in harmony with all forms of healing, drugs, surgery and treatments. Many hospitals offer Reiki as part of their regular treatments.
