Frequently Asked Questions
I understand you may have some questions. Here are the popular questions I often get asked about Reiki and your Reiki session. However, feel free to contact me if you have any other queries!
What happens in a reiki session?
When you arrive there is a quick form to fill out, before we have a chat getting to know each other a little. You remain fully clothed during the session, lying comfortably on a massage table & covered with a light blanket. Practitioner lays hands on or slightly off the body. Every experience is unique, you might feel subtle energy waves or none at all – each is ok. It is mostly a restful experience.
Are there any side effects to reiki?
There are no known negative side effects to reiki, it is a non-invasive modality. Most clients leave feeling relaxed. Next day they report a sense of calm & more focused. Sometimes you might be a little tired the next day. It is a good idea to drink more water and rest after a session as your body could be clearing out stored toxins.
