What Happens During a Reiki Session?

Reiki is a Japanese healing technique that involves the transfer of energy from the practitioner to the client. The word "Reiki" is made up of two Japanese words: "rei," which means universal, and "ki," which means life force energy. Reiki is based on the principle that when the energy in our body is balanced and flowing freely, we experience good health and well-being.

During a Reiki session, the client lies down on a table or sits in a chair while the practitioner places their hands on or near the client's body. The practitioner then channels the universal life force energy through their hands and into the client's body, promoting a state of deep relaxation and healing.

Reiki is a non-invasive therapy, and the client remains fully clothed throughout the session. The practitioner may move their hands over different parts of the client's body, focusing on areas where the energy is blocked or stagnant. Reiki can be performed on any part of the body, including the head, neck, shoulders, back, abdomen, and legs.

A distance Reiki session is a form of Reiki healing that can be performed remotely, without the client and practitioner being in the same physical location. In a distance Reiki session, the practitioner connects with the client's energy field through intention and visualization, and channels Reiki energy to the client from a distance.

The process of a distance Reiki session is similar to an in-person session, with a few key differences. Instead of the client lying down on a table or sitting in a chair, they may choose to relax in a comfortable position in their own home. The practitioner may also connect with the client via phone or video call to discuss any specific concerns or intentions for the session.

Once the client is ready, the practitioner begins the distance Reiki session by focusing their intention on sending Reiki energy to the client. They may use visualization techniques to create a "virtual" healing space and connect with the client's energy field. The practitioner then channels Reiki energy to the client, using symbols and techniques that are typically used in an in-person Reiki session.

Throughout the session, the client may feel sensations such as warmth, tingling, or relaxation, as the Reiki energy flows through their body. The practitioner may also provide guidance or support through the phone or video call, as needed.

At the end of the session, the practitioner may disconnect from the client's energy field and offer any final guidance or insights. The client can then take some time to rest and integrate the healing energy before going about their day.

Distance Reiki sessions can be just as effective as in-person sessions, as energy is not limited by physical distance. Many people find distance Reiki sessions to be a convenient and accessible way to receive healing energy, especially if they are unable to visit a practitioner in person. If you're interested in trying a distance Reiki session, find a qualified practitioner who offers this service and schedule a session today.

Reiki has been used to help alleviate a wide range of physical, emotional, and mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, chronic pain, digestive disorders, and sleep problems. Reiki can also be used to promote general relaxation and a sense of well-being.

While Reiki is a complementary therapy, it is not a replacement for traditional medical treatments. Reiki practitioners do not diagnose or prescribe medication, and clients should always consult with their doctor before trying any new therapy.

Overall, Reiki is a gentle and non-invasive therapy that can help promote relaxation, reduce stress, and support overall health and well-being.
