What to Expect During a Reiki/Energy Healing Session

What to Expect:

There are many goals of an energy healing session, including clearing away and removing unwanted energies, opening and balancing the chakra system, bringing relaxation to the mind and body and more. 


Energy healing is not massage therapy--there's no manipulation or stretching of the muscles.  Energy healing sessions are performed with clients fully clothed.  Comfortable clothing and minimal jewelry are recommended. 


All sessions begin with an intake discussion where you will have the opportunity to discuss the reason for your visit, particular areas of concern, and what you are hoping to achieve from the session.


After the intake discussion, you will be invited to remove your shoes and lie down on your back on the massage table. A blanket will be provided for warmth.  The lights will be dimmed and the session will begin with entering a calm, meditative state, aura cleansing (smudging), chakra check, and body scan.  Sometimes we are led to take you through a guided meditation as we begin channeling the Reiki energy.  We typically perform our sessions with light touch at some chakras (examples: head and neck) and with hands slightly above the body at other chakras (sensitive/private areas are never touched).   If you prefer not to be touched at all, please indicate this on the New Client Information form, as well as verbally during the intake discussion. 

The session will then proceed with us moving through the traditional Reiki hand positions beginning at your head and ending at your feet. We allow Spirit to guide us and so sometimes we deviate from traditional Reiki.  Each practitioner has their own style and preferred methods of healing.  In our sessions, you may experience other healing methods in addition to Reiki, such as the use of crystals, channeling of angelic energies and Light Language, shamanic healing techniques, sound, and other methods as Spirit leads.  Many clients report feeling warmth, tingling, or seeing colors swirling in their mind’s eye with their eyes closed during sessions. 

Occasionally, clients have reported physical sensations that they describe as "feeling an extra set of hands," especially when we're channeling angelic energies.  Some clients feel nothing at all but sheer relaxation and even get a good nap. Whatever way you experience the energy of your session is the perfect way for you.  At the end of the session, you will feel calm, relaxed, and renewed. 

A brief post-session consult will be done at the conclusion of the session where you can share your experience and ask any questions you may have.  Payment for services will be collected at that time.  We recommend that you drink plenty of water and consider eating a small snack after the appointment to assist you in grounding your energy and flushing out toxins from your system (this is always recommended after energy work).

We look forward to working with you!!

*Please note that while energy healing therapies can complement any medical or psychological care you may be receiving, they do not take the place of medical or psychological care. It is highly recommended that you see a licensed physician or licensed health care professional for any physical or psychological ailment you may have.  Energy healing therapy practitioners do not diagnose conditions, nor do they prescribe or perform medical treatment, prescribe substances, or interfere with the treatment of a licensed medical professional.
