FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY FIRST TREATMENT?

Some clients find it helpful to take time to think about the upcoming session and identify any areas of concern or goals they would like to address. 


Make sure to eat and hydrate before the session.


Wear comfortable clothes. Unlike massage, clients will be fully dressed for the reiki session. It can be helpful to wear light layers and bring a pair of socks in case a client's feet become cold. 

Use the restroom before the session so you can be fully relaxed the entire time. 

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM MY FIRST SESSION?

A session can either be hands-on, where a Practitioner will apply a light touch during the session, or hands-off where they will hold their hands slightly above your body. If a client prefers not to be touched they can indicate this to the practitioner before they begin.


The session will then proceed with the Reiki Practitioner moving through specific standard Reiki hand positions beginning at the person’s head or feet. A recipient of Reiki might feel a warming sensation or a tingling during the session or nothing at all but sheer relaxation. The session should be very pleasant, relaxing and invigorating.
