A Karuna Reiki Treatment

What to expect from the session

A Karuna Reiki treatment usually takes 45 minutes to one hour.  There is a short assessment form to complete before the treatment to establish your general state of health, reasons for coming for Reiki and the benefits you hope to gain.  Everything we discuss remains completely private and confidential.  Please allow up to 1½ hours for the entire session.

After completing the assessment I will ask you to remove your shoes and invite you to lie on the treatment table. You may sit on a chair if this is more comfortable for you. I will start the treatment by directing the Reiki energy through my hands to different locations and areas of your body.  My hands will either be placed lightly on your body or held a few inches away from you.  These hand positions change throughout the treatment according to how the energy is being used and directed.  The flow of Reiki energy can be felt as subtle sensations such as heat, cold or tingling.  Generally, people find the Reiki energy very relaxing and will often doze or fall asleep. 

At the end of the treatment, there is a brief feedback form to complete and an opportunity to discuss how you feel and the sensations experienced.  I may also provide feedback about the flow of Reiki energy and my perceptions of the treatment. 

How many treatment sessions do you need?

Each treatment is unique to you and your current level of health and well-being.  The Reiki energy works gently with your body, at a pace that suits you.  Some problems can be helped quickly, although long-standing or chronic illnesses may take longer. With each successive treatment, the energy flows and penetrates at a deeper level to support your physical, emotional and mental well-being.  The duration and continuation of Reiki is based purely on the benefits being received and experienced by you.  Each treatment generally builds on the last, providing a structure for health and well-being to emerge.

How often do you have a treatment?

The frequency of treatments and the length of time between treatments are based on your individual health and well-being needs.  A typical time-frame is one treatment per month, for three to seven sessions.  Reiki can continue, however, for as long as beneficial.  Restorative or booster treatments can also be booked whenever you feel the need to relax and unwind from the general stresses of life.

Should I tell my Doctor?

Reiki does not conflict with conventional medicine and stimulates the body’s natural healing ability.  It works well in conjunction with all medical or psychological care.  It is recommended that if you have an illness or other medical or psychological condition that, in addition to getting Reiki treatments, you also consult a licensed physician or other licensed health care professional. It is your doctor who must decide whether to reduce any medication you may be on. 

A Reiki treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that surrounds and fills you.  It can bring feelings of relaxation, peace and well-being that promote healing.
