What Can Reiki Do for me?
8:58 am edt
Many ancient cultures embrace the belief that life energy flows through the body deeply affecting
our entire being. Current research strongly suggest that energy does extend throughout and beyond the physical body, and that
disruptions or imbalances correlate to physical, mental and emotional illness. The healing art of reiki addresses these imbalances
to support your good health and well being.
Benefits that clients have reported include:
Accelerated surgical recovery
Enhanced well being
Reduced side effects from chemotherapy
and radiation treatments

Be Patient with Your Healing
6:25 am est
As powerful as they are, reiki and other types of
energy healing do not produce instantaneous results. Healing is a process that is comprised of all the changes taking place
in your body as it works to reach a state of wellness. These changes, despite their progression toward healing, can often
surface as symptoms that indicate the changes are counterproductive. In other words, it may appear that you are getting sicker
or that your condition is worsening, when in fact your body is working through all the energetic disruptions in order to heal.
As soon as the healing process begins to take effect, your body will start working at a higher level of efficiency.
This essentially means that the body is removing the bad to make room for the good. The liver, kidneys, bowels, and even your
muscles and skin are working to eliminate toxins that have been stored in your bloodstream. As your body detoxifies, symptoms
often emerge in the form of a runny nose, upset stomach, headache, fatigue, and other manifestations of what seems like illness
on the surface. But look at it like this: when you haven't used certain muscles for a while they will ache after exercise.
This rule applies to other body parts and organs as well. As they adjust to a healthier mode of operation, they experience
what energy healers refer to as the "healing crisis" - a crucial part of recovery that indicates that you are in
Here are some words to live by: Be patient and don't panic. Even though certain aspects of your
physical or mental state may seem to be in crisis, you must know that once the toxins, blockages, and harmful energies have
been released, you will feel better. Energy healing prompts the body to follow its natural course of healing, and any discomforts
that may emerge in the process are simply part of that course. After a reiki session, or during the course of several sessions,
you may feel that your condition has deteriorated rather than improved. Take solace in the notion that "this too shall
pass" and remember that while your body is releasing toxins, it's important to drink plenty of water, replenish lost
nutrients, get lots of rest, and be patient.

How to Prepare for a Reiki Session
There are several things that you can do to prepare for your Reiki session that will increase your comfort level, as well
as the effectiveness of the healing session. The basic premise behind this is mindful awareness of the experience that
you are about to have. Following these steps will also help your Reiki practitioner feel at ease and comfortable practicing
7:17 am edt
To begin with, take a long relaxing shower the day of your treatment. The hot, cleansing water
will help refresh and relax you, both mentally and physically. Avoid using any heavily scented products during or after
your shower. Wearing strong scents could later prove detrimental, as the smell might distract you or your practitioner
during the Reiki treatment.
Dress yourself in comfortable, loose fitting clothing. Avoid wearing
tight clothing, as they lessen your chances of relaxing fully. Likewise, items such as short skirts should be avoided.
Whenever possible, wear shoes that are easy to remove, and dress in layers so that you can be dressed appropriately for the
room's temperature. Leave the jewelry at home on the day of your treatment- wedding bands are usually fine, but
watches, bracelets and necklaces should be left someplace safe and out of the way. Some practitioners believe that jewelry
can interfere with energy flow, while others merely find it to be in the way.
Be sure to arrive a few
moments early for your appointment to avoid the stress of feeling late and being rushed. Be sure to communicate with
your practitioner. Let them know what your preferences are (music, no music, dimmer lighting, etc) and alert them to
any areas you would like them to work on. This communication is also important during a Reiki treatment. For example,
if you started off your treatment very cold and were lying under a blanket, and later became very hot, it is far preferable
that you simply let your practitioner know, rather than lying there under a blanket, sweating.
of Reiki is different, and may have their own specific guidelines for how they prefer their clients to prepare for a session.
The above is merely a general guideline. Always follow the instructions of your practitioner.
