What to expect during a Reiki treatment?

Reiki treatments take place in a peaceful and welcoming treatment room in my home in Bournemouth, Dorset.

Before your Reiki treatment, we discuss your challenges and set your intentions for the treatment. You remain fully clothed for the treatment, which takes place lying down on the treatment couch, and will be offered a blanket and a bolster under your knees to keep you comfortable.  All you have to do is close your eyes, relax and enjoy the calming music.

During the 50-minute treatment, I channel the positive Universal life-force energy and transfer it to you through a series of hand positions placed gently on the body, or if you prefer, hovering over the body. There is no massage or pressure and you should not feel any discomfort. You may feel the Reiki energy from my hands as a flow of energy, heat, cold or mild tingling. You may see colours or flashes of light. Or, you may find the treatment so relaxing that you drift off to sleep! There is no right or wrong way to experience Reiki: each treatment is unique and your experience may be different every time.

After the treatment, you can slowly return to the present with a glass of water while we discuss how you’re feeling, any observations and self-care advice. For the rest of the day, you may feel tired as the energy blockages continue to shift, or you may feel energised and raring to go. Listen to your body and how you are feeling and make time to give yourself what you need.

How many Reiki treatments will I need?

Some of my clients book a Reiki treatment as a ‘top-up’ when they are feeling under the weather, or need some time to relax, and just one treatment can make all the difference! Others have regular treatments as part of their personal wellness programme to maintain their overall health and wellbeing.

However, if you have a specific concern it is important to remember that it has taken years to create the current energy dynamic and a regular course of treatments will be needed to clear blocked energy, restore the energy system and strengthen it over time. Generally, the more long-standing the concern, the more Reiki treatments will be required. Energy healing is a process and is different for each person so we will discuss your Reiki treatment plan together, however there is no pressure to re-book and it is always your decision how you would like to proceed.
