Hands

Reiki

I have been a Reiki Master for 8 years. It was the first healing modality that I practiced in. I am grateful to be able to offer this.

Reiki is a Japanese energy healing technique. The predominate form of reiki practiced throughout the world today, also known as Usui reiki, was created by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 20th century. It’s a complementary or alternative health approach. Reiki does not directly cure diseases or illnesses. Instead, it’s used as a way to manage symptoms and improve general well-being. 

During a reiki session, the practitioner places their hands either directly on you or just above you to bring about healing. The belief is that the practitioner is able to stimulate your body’s natural healing abilities.

Relieves Pain, Anxiety, and Fatigue 

Reiki can help to reduce pain and anxiety, though more research is needed. It may also help to reduce fatigue. 

May Improve Some Symptoms & Conditions

Reiki may also be used to treat:

  • headache

  • tension 

  • insomnia 

  • nausea

The relaxation response that happens with Reiki may benefit these symptoms.

How to Prepare for a Session

Wear clean, loose-fitting, comfortable clothing. You may wish to wear natural fabrics such as cotton, linen, or silk. Remove your shoes, jewellery, and glasses before your session, and keep your phone switched off or leave it behind. 

Relieves Symptoms of Depression

Reiki treatments may be used as part of a treatment plan to help relieve depression. 

Reiki clients have felt an improvement of their physical symptoms, mood, and well-being. They also reported more feelings of relaxation, increased curiosity, and enhanced levels of self-care. They also felt more relaxed, increased sense of curiosity, and enhanced levels of self-care. 

Are There Risks or Side Effects?

It doesn’t have any known harmful side effects. For those with a past trauma, lying quietly in a dim room with someone close to you might be uncomfortable. 

Reiki is not intended to replace any doctor-approved treatment plan. 

What to Expect After Your Appointment

Drink plenty of water after your session. Some people feel calm, peaceful, or energized. You may also feel tired. 

Enhances Quality of Life

The positive benefits of reiki can enhance your overall well-being. Women who had reiki showed improvements to their sleep patterns, self-confidence, and depression levels. They noted a sense of calm, inner peace, and relaxation. 

What Happens During a Reiki Session?

A typical reiki session lasts between 30 and 60 minutes. At your first appointment, you’ll meet with Sarah. You’ll have a short introduction or chat about the process and your expectations or intentions. Here we can discuss any symptoms you want addressed or if there are places in the body on which you’d like them to focus. Also, let me know if you have any injuries or places that are sensitive to touch. 

You’ll be instructed to lie down on a treatment table or mat. Sarah will cover you with a blanket. Usually soft, relaxing music will be playing in the background. For the most part there won’t be any talking during the session, but you can feel free to let Sarah know if there’s something you need to feel more comfortable or to share what you’re experiencing.

Sarah will move her hands around your body. She may touch you lightly or have their hands just above your body. 

You may experience sensations in the body such as heat or tingling. Some people report seeing visualizations such as colours or pictures, or having memories appear. Try to allow whatever arises to pass without attaching too much meaning to it. Your experiences may become deeper the more you continue with reiki.
