What to expect

Your Jikiden Reiki session will be individually tailored to suit your needs.

A session would typically involve you either lying on a massage table or sitting on a chair (depending on what you find most comfortable), whilst remaining fully clothed. Your Reiki session will last either 60 or 90 minutes (depending on the option you have chosen) during which time I will place my hands gently on your body, or just above your body. I will typically change the positioning of my hands several times as the treatment progresses. If you have a particular area of concern (for example, a sore shoulder), I may spend more time with my hands on this area. All you have to ‘do’ is relax.

A Reiki session is a highly individual experience depending on what is going on for you at the time. People often report feeling deeply relaxed during Reiki treatments. Some report feeling heat, coolness or tingling where I have placed my hands, or elsewhere on the body. Others feel their body gently moving, as if it were naturally re-adjusting itself. There is no need to pay too much attention to these sensations. Everyone is different and every Reiki session is different. The most important thing is to pay attention to how you feel after your Reiki session(s).

What you may experience after your Reiki session

This might be something quite dramatic, like realising you are free from pain for the first time in years or feeling like an emotional weight has been lifted off your shoulders. Or it might be something quite simple like getting a great night’s sleep or an improvement in appetite. Such observations, however big or small, can be interpreted as outward effects of your body naturally restoring balance. Being observant to such changes will help you to measure the impact of Reiki on your personal wellbeing. For more serious or persistent issues (where a series of sessions is normally required), paying attention to such changes can help motivate you to continue with the full course of Reiki sessions.

The end of your Reiki session

As your Reiki session comes to a close, you will have the option of receiving a short and rejuvenating traditional ‘Kekko’ massage (again, fully clothed).  At the end of your session, you will have the opportunity (should you wish) to ask me any questions or to discuss anything that came up for you during your session.
