What to expect during a Reiki Treatment
You will be asked to lay down on a treatment table, or sit in a comfortable chair. You will be fully clothed except for your shoes. It is best to choose comfortable garments to wear on the day of your appointment. Silver Spiral Reiki Treatments are carried out in a relaxing atmosphere with the use of dimmed lights and meditative music.
Reiki treatments can be carried out hands on, or hands off (hovering above the body). You will be asked your preference prior to treatment. Either way, Reiki energies will automatically flow to where the imbalances are in you body regardless of where the hands are placed.
What will it feel like?
As the energy flows, most people will feel warmth, or heat, or tingling from the practitioners hands. It is usually a very relaxing experience and some people fall asleep! Other sensations may include seeing coloured lights or feeling as if you are floating. Sometimes people have an 'emotional release' - feeling quite emotional and tearful for a little while during the treatment as emotional turmoil is brought to the surface to be released and dissipated.
How many treatments should I have?
While Reiki is very effective, it is not a miracle cure, and the effects of Reiki treatments tend to build up cumulatively. To experience the full benefit of Reiki we would recommend that you have four to six full Reiki Treatments. In our experience this number of sessions is usually enough to sort out stress, tension, anxiety, sleeplessness and some emotional problems; physical stuff can take a little longer, but not always. Reiki generally produces long-term beneficial changes, so you do not necessarily need to keep coming back for endless Reiki sessions. However, once you have felt how wonderful it feels, you may want to keep coming back!
No matter what your particular complaint, the general effect of a course of Reiki Treatments seems to be - to make you feel more calm, less stressed and better able to cope. Reiki seems to boost energy levels, raise your spirits and make you feel more positive about things.
Reiki brings things back into balance.
