What Is Reiki
Simply put, Reiki (pronounced “ray-key”) is a relaxation technique that reduces stress and promotes healing . The reiki practitioner channels healing energy through their hands to the client, balancing their energy field. In the most basic sense, it’s a form of energy healing, which has been around since the dawn of time in one form or another. It’s a very natural and primal instinct to heal in this way. Think about when you were a kid, when you fall and skin your knee. What’s the first thing you do? Immediately cover the injury with your hands. If a baby’s crying, you pick him up. It’s ingrained in us to place our hands on things that need healing! Think of reiki of one specific style of hands on/energy healing.

How to Prepare for a Reiki Session
- Wear comfortable clothing – you’ll remain fully clothed throughout your session
- You will be removing your shoes, so consider whether you’d rather be barefoot or in socks
- Limit the amount of jewelry you wear
- Hit the restroom ahead of time, so you’re not distracted by a full bladder
- If you’d like, set an intention for your session
What Happens During a Reiki Session
Most people feel deeply relaxed while receiving Reiki. You may feel heat coming from my hands as I very lightly touch various areas of the body, such as the head, hands, knees and ankles. Each session is unique and individualized, so it’s tough to describe a ‘typical’ session, but I usually begin at the top of the head and work down the right side of the body and back up the left. I may also use a combination of other tools such as The Haven Shoppe’s Body & Soul mists, essential oils, sound therapy, or crystals to assist with energetic balancing.
Most individuals lie silently with eyes closed, in a deeply relaxed/meditative state, however you should feel free to talk, share what you’re experiencing, or adjust your position at any time. It will not interrupt the flow of energy, and this is YOUR time! Your comfort is top priority. Since Reiki helps to release energy that you no longer need, emotional release is a natural and common result. All personal information, experiences, and discussion are regarded with the utmost respect and confidentiality, always. You may continue to release in the hours and days that follow your session, so notice and honor any thoughts/feelings/emotions that arise after you’re off the table.
If you’re curious to learn more, or feel ready to experience Reiki, you’re very likely already on a healing path of your own. Feel free to reach out to me with questions.
