What Can I Expect from a Healing Session?

 In some ways, there is no typical healing session, setting , or length of time. However, a quiet place is preferable. Energy Healing can be done any where, no matter what else is happening either around or directly to you. I can create the ideal situation for you either at my premises or when making a house call.


It is important to state that any condition you may have or think you have should be diagnosed by a medical Doctor and energy Healing or Reiki is not a substitue for convential medicine.


How long will the session take ?

The length of the appointment is really up to you but generally it is between 20 minutes and 40 minutes but you should allow longer for your first session. Those receiving Healing in a hospital, hospice, nursing home, or other healthcare settings may have a shorter session 15 or 20 minutes.


How much does the session cost?

Healing given in hospitals or via a Doctors refereals are FREE.


Is there an intake process?

We will need to discuss any special requirements you may need and a brief medical history and any medications that you are taking. This is required by the Reiki Council and The Healing Trust as we are hoping that Energy Healing will help improve any condition that you have and therefore you may need to consult your GP regarding your dosage of medication.


What does the session consist of?

A complete Healing session is offered to a fully clothed recipient who is lying on a treatment table or sitting comfortably supported in a chair. My treatment does not involve ‘hands on’ touching but is performed with my hands off the body by about 5 to 30 inches, this is a more powerful effect as it treats the auric field as well as the physical body. Most commonly, Reiki is offered through light, non-invasive touch with the practitioner's hands placed and held on a series of locations on the head and front and back of the torso.

What is the setting?

A quiet setting where you will not be disturbed with soft music during the session as a way of masking ambient noise, but let me know if you prefer silence.


What might I experience?

Whilst no promises are given many clients feel different effects and some of their comments have been "I feel very refreshed and seem to be thinking more clearly." "I think I fell asleep." "I can't believe how hot your hands got!" "I feel more relaxed than even after a massage." "My headache has gone." These are some of things people typically say after a Healing session. The experience of Healing is subjective, changeable, and sometimes very subtle. People often experience heat or cold or a tingling feeing. Other common experiences are subtle pulsations  or cascading waves of pulsations throughout the body.

People often comment how comforting they find the experience of Energy Healing to be. Some people fall into a deep, sleeplike meditative state. Sometimes the experience of Healing is dramatic, while for other people, the first session in particular may be uneventful, although they feel somehow better afterward. The most common experience is an almost immediate release of stress and a feeling of deep relaxation. Energy Healing is cumulative and even people who don't notice much the first time usually have progressively deeper experiences if they continue. Besides the immediate experience of the Energy Healing, you may notice other changes that continue to unfold as the day goes on, perhaps stronger digestion, a sense of being more centered and poised and less reactive, and sleeping deeply that night.


What should I do during the session?

Use the rest room before your session so that you are able to lie down comfortably. Let me know your needs before you start, for example, if you have trouble breathing and lying flat is uncomfortable, say so. If you are pregnant or have digestive complaints, it may not be feasible to lie on your stomach. As the session progresses, you will feel more relaxed. If you become uncomfortable, you can adjust your position at any time. Be sure to ask for anything that will add to your comfort, such as additional support under your knees or a blanket. This is your special time and I am there to help you. Receiving Energy Healing is a wonderfully passive experience. Don't try to relax, just let the energy relax you. Your state will shift quite naturally as the session proceeds. Meanwhile feel free to daydream, enjoy the music, or simply observe your breath or the sensations of the therapy.


What happens after the session?

Do not expect a diagnosis, as that is not part of Energy Healing or Reiki. You will need to have a glass of water after each session to help cleans and clear away any unwanted energies. Although people typically leave a session feeling refreshed, sometimes they notice feeling more tired in the evening than usual. This is not viewed as an adverse reaction, but rather as the body's natural healing response, something to be heeded. People commonly report a sense of calm and mental clarity and sleeping well after treatment.


How many sessions should I receive?

I may suggest a series of sessions. Four sessions is a traditional recommendation and gives you time to evaluate what benefits you are receiving. I will discuss with you how best to space the sessions to suit your needs and your schedule.
