What Does Reiki Feel Like?
When the practitioner performs a Reiki session it’s quite common for the client to experience tingling, warmth, or buzzing within their bodies. Some people also experience a weight lifted from the part of their body once the practitioner moves on to the next area. Reiki is actually an extremely relaxing experience and the majority of people who get on my table fall asleep within minutes. Our bodies heal fastest when it’s at it’s most relaxed state. Unfortunately we’re always so busy with day to day life that our bodies rarely fall into that relaxed state unless we’re sleeping…. and let’s face it, most of us don’t get enough of that either.
A room that Reiki is performed in is usually dimly lit and includes items that reflect the practitioners personality. It could be crystals, posters of chakras, salt lamps, buffalo drums, or anything else they feel will add to the relaxing vibe. As a client you will lay fully clothed on a massage table and there are usually blankets and pillows handy to add to the relaxation. If you fall asleep, or let yourself relax with your eyes closed, it’s also not uncommon to see images or swirls of colours in your minds eye.
Are there any side effects to receiving Reiki?
Technically, no. Reiki complements all medicines and therapies / modalities BUT I would like to mention one thing. SOME people experience a little bit of dizziness or light headedness immediately after a session (please be sure to communicate this with your practitioner!). I’ve also heard of people not feeling so hot a few hours after their session is complete, like upset stomach or headaches, nothing too major but it does on occasion happen.
What are the Benefits of Reiki?
The most obvious benefits are:
Reduces stress and anxiety
Helps with Insomnia
Relieves or reduces pain in the body (old injuries, back pain, headaches, you name it)
But there are many other benefits to receiving Reiki, such as:
Improve overall well-being (body, mind and spirit)
Helps remove the body of toxins
Relieve emotional stress
Assists with infertility, menstruation or issues during menopause
Relieves digestive issues or upsets
Energy healing is my favourite modality because it promotes healing on all levels of our being (physical, emotional, mental & spiritual). It’s gentle and relaxing and most importantly it works! I wouldn’t rave about it if I haven’t experienced or witnessed it myself first hand.
