Frequently Asked Questions
Reiki is quickly becoming one of the most popular healing arts and personal growth practices in the world. Many people are drawn to its gentle power, its remarkable results and ease of access. Still, it's understandable that you may have some questions. Here are a few common questions and some brief answers, and you are welcome to get in touch with your additional questions.
What is a Virtual Reiki session like?
Virtual Reiki is as convenient and comfortable as it gets! You choose where you want to experience your session, with most choosing to relax on a couch or bed, or in a comfy chair. There's no need to undress as for a massage.
Your session will begin and end with a check-in conversation to center your priorities. Reiki is shared through guided meditation, activating your natural healing systems. You'll receive a questionnaire before and after to help co-create your best experience.
How does Reiki work?
Reiki is one of many systems known as energy healing, which includes more than physical touch, chemical influence, information or suggestion. In this sense, energy indicates our invisible systems like biofields that integrate with physical systems like the immune system, the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, and really every aspect of holistic health.
Reiki begins with relaxation, which unleashes your natural healing responses by creating a sense of safety and shifting from instinct to intuition. From there, your body and your being use the extra support to improve all aspects of your wellbeing spontaneously. Being an unconscious response, it's not controlled, but rather allowed to flourish.
Is Reiki safe for me?
Reiki does not cause side effects and is safe for nearly everyone in every situation. Some discomfort is occasionally experienced during or after Reiki treatment, which is a natural part of the healing process such as releasing toxins.
There are rare occasions when Reiki is not advised, and a qualified Reiki provider will be able to assess these unusual indications.
How long does Reiki healing take?
While some symptoms or conditions can be relieved almost instantly, like some headaches, eye strain or cramps, even anxiety and insomnia, but often the healing process takes time, as with many treatment options. Several Reiki sessions are usually necessary to clear up more serious conditions and those that have accrued over time.
Regular Reiki sessions can also help prevent problems as well as clearing up those from the past and present, by giving your body and mind a safe, relaxing practice that becomes a new habit of letting go of stress and allowing your body the rest required for natural rejuvenation.
Is Reiki effective?
Reiki is valued in many hospitals, by many other medical practitioners and other helping professionals, and studies have begun to show evidence of Reiki contributing to improved outcomes.
I am happy to share my personal experiences of self-healing and wellness practice, helping family and friends heal more quickly and effectively, supporting many clients and students in enjoying greater wellbeing through Reiki.
Do you offer a guarantee?
I will make every reasonable effort to co-create a satisfying experience for you, but I cannot guarantee exactly how your body and healing systems will respond. You will be provided with the agreed-upon sessions and wellness support, including rescheduling when necessary.. If you are unsatisfied for any reason, please get in touch with me.
