What happens during a Reiki Session?
During a Reiki Treatment, the practitioner will slightly hover her hands on or over your body to scan for discomforts and/or blockages in your energy fields. Nikki then, gently transforms all blocked energy found that may be causing symptoms of illness, low moods, past emotional/physical trauma, anxiety, etc.
What can I expect during my first appointment?
Your session starts by you lying relaxed on a massage table. If you have mobility or pain issues, please communicate these to your Practitioner. Unlike a massage therapy session, you will be fully clothed. The Practitioner’s hands will be a few inches/centimeters above your body. There are standard hand placements beginning at your head or feet, avoiding all sensitive body parts.
During a Reiki session, you may experience deep relaxation, heat or coolness, tingling, throbbing, or sleepiness. Some people report seeing colors, having memories surface or feeling emotions. You are always welcome to talk to your Reiki practitioner about anything that came up in your session.
Reiki can also be received remotely and still offer great benefits. During Reiki training, practitioners learn about three symbols—one of which is the “distance symbol.” When invoked, this symbol is thought to allow the practitioner to send balancing Reiki energy across time and space. During your session, relax into a comfortable position to receive the work. Clients who choose distance Reiki will receive an email afterwards with insights from Nikki.
We can thank Albert Einstein for helping us understand the science of energy moving through space. His work, along with many scientists in quantum physics have merged the ancient techniques of balancing the body’s electromagnetic field with scientific understanding.
