Rescheduling recommendation would be a minimum of 2 more sessions, about 3-4 weeks in between. Typically clients will then schedule sessions once a month for maintenance. Chronic issues ofter require a greater length of time through each person's struggles and needs are unique to them, so the length and frequency of sessions will vary.
Reflection is important after the session, so I often recommend clients journal, draw or somehow capture any insights they had during and immediately after the session. Contact your practitioner if you experience any overly challenging emotions, physical sensations or issues after your treatment.
It is important both before and after your sessions to eat and hydrate. Sessions are typically 2hours long so you will want to be fed and properly hydrated. Energy work is often hungry work, you may find yourself hungry and thirsty immediately after your session.
Relax, reflect and give yourself at treat 30 mintiest prior to the session to sit and reflect, particularly checking in with how your body is feeling and anything you are noticing with regress to emotions, thoughts, or physical sensations. Wear comfortable clothes and bring socks. You will be lying down most of the time, and we don't want you to get cold.
Reiki sessions will usually last 60-90 minutes. At your first appointment we will have a quick conversation about the process and your expectations or intentions. Also, we will go over any symptoms, injuries, places sensitive to touch that you want addressed before we get started. You will be laying down fully clothed on a massage table covered with a blanket. Usually soft, relaxing music will be playing in the background along with aromatherapy using doTERRA essential oils.
Reiki is a Japanese healing technique that helps to promote healing by releasing congestion from energy centers. Reiki translates to “universal life force energy.” . When your life force energy is low or there is a restriction on the flow, you will be more vulnerable to illness. When it is high and flowing freely, you are less likely to get sick. Reiki guides itself with it's own wisdom and is not directed by the practitioner. Reiki is non-invasive, both powerful and gentle and is a gift to the world and to all of those who have the opportunity to receive it
Reiki stimulates your bodies innate healing resources, encouraging a return to wellness. Reiki is a good integrative therapy to try because people generally start feeling better very quickly with Reiki. As anxiety and pain lessen, and people feel hopeful about regaining their health, they feel more able to incorporate other needed health interventions or make needed lifestyle changes. Reiki therapy often clears the mind, enabling patients to better evaluate the sometimes conflicting medical information being offered by various specialists, so they can make important treatment decisions with greater confidence. In this way, Reiki can help people become more actively involved in their own health.
For the most part there won’t be any talking during the session, but feel free to let me know if there’s something you need to feel more comfortable or to share what you’re experiencing. I will hold my hands lightly on or over the body as the transfer of energy takes place. You may feel warmth and some tingling coming from my hands and each hand position is held until I feel that the energy has stopped flowing. Once is has stopped I will remove my hands and then will place them over a different area of the body.
