Frequently asked questions
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a form of Hands on (or no-touch) Energy Healing. I has been developed in Japan, in the 1920s by Mikao Usui. It is often used as a complementary treatment to help heal both emotional as well as physical ailments. Energy healing has been used for centuries in various forms.
What does Reiki feel like?
Everyone's experience of a Reiki treatment is diffeent. Common experiences are a sense of deep relaxation, tingling sensations, temperature changes, visuals, emotion carrying memories, emotional releases such as crying or laughing, tummy rumbles, single body part shakes.
After a Reiki treatment the most common sensations are of a weight having being lifted, an emotion released, a newfound sense of safety, decrease of any prior pain or discomfort or a generall happier mood and more positive outlook.
How does remote Reiki work?
Reiki treatments can be sent over any distance, from a different room all the way to a different continent.
The way I run my Remote Reiki Sessions is:
You buy your session here
On the date and time of your session you will need to find a quiet and comfortable space to lie down, preferably with a blanket covering you (even if the room is relatively warm you might feel cold after longer periods of not moving).
I suggest to have a glass of water near by as well as a cup of herbal tea, to have after your session. You might also like to keep a journal nearby to write down any messages that might come up for you.
Following your session I will follow up with another message and you are also welcome to share anything that came up for you during your session.
Can Reiki have any negative side effects?
Reiki has no negative side effects. What might sometimes be experienced as negative can be a difficult unprocessed emotion or thought. These might come to the surface during a session in order to be healed and released. This process is absolutely normal and nothing to worry about.
Can I use Reiki instead of going to the doctor?
No. Please if you are suffering from any other difficult mental or health conditions, bear in mind that Reiki is not an alternative to seeing your doctor.
Can I buy a Reiki session as a gift?
A Reiki session would make for a beautiful gift!
You may buy a session as normal and when I get in touch with you via email, you will need to let me know the email of the recipient.
They will receive the gift email with the price removed.
As with all therapies it is always advised to consult with your friend or relative to make sure it is a gift they would be open to and comfortable with.
Can I get Reiki send to someone without their knowledge?
As beautiful a gesture that might be, Reiki in my practice cannot be sent without permission from the recipient. Energy healing requires one to be open to receive a treatment.
