Are you experiencing insomnia, anxiety, fatigue, or physical discomfort? Reiki channels energy into the body to remove energy blockages, restore balance, and promote healing. The practice is non-invasive and is sometimes used alongside traditional medical treatments to support healing. We provide both in-person and remote reiki healing.

Frequently Asked Questions 

About Reiki

What is a Reiki Healer?

Not just anyone can call themselves a Reiki Healer. Professional Reiki Healers must complete a series of courses, beginning with Reiki Level 1, often continuing through Reiki Level 2, then onto the Reiki Master Course and practicum. Our training was completed with Grand Master Kataka Gara of Integrative Reiki, and We Heal University.

How long is a Reiki session?

A session is generally one hour. We offer both 30-minute and 60-minute sessions.  During our initial consultation meeting, we can talk about what is best for your situation.

Will I be lying down on a massage table or sitting?

Reiki is usually performed on a client fully reclined comfortably on a massage table. It also may be performed on a client who is semi-reclined on a massage chair or recliner. If you have mobility or pain issues, please communicate these to your Practitioner so they may make you most comfortable for the session.

Am I clothed during my Reiki session?

Yes. Unlike a massage therapy session, you will be fully clothed. For a Reiki session, you will want to wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing.

Will the Reiki Practitioner’s hands touch me in any way?

At your option. Reiki may be done with a light, gentle pressure static touch, or the Practitioner’s hands may be a few inches/centimeters above your body at the hand positions with no actual touch. Standard hand placements begin at your head or feet, avoiding all sensitive body parts. Before the session, we will discuss your preference, light touch or no touch.

Is one session enough, or will I need a series of sessions?

One session is a great start! You will see for yourself how Reiki makes you feel if it is relaxing if you feel more clarity after the session. After trying one session, many people purchase a series of sessions to work on their current wellness goals progressively.

Is Reiki for an acute condition or a chronic condition?

If you have an acute condition, you should seek out a licensed medical professional immediately. If you have a chronic or current issue, Reiki can be an excellent complement to your health or wellness plan.

What will I feel during the session?

Most clients feel a sense of relaxation and peace. The mind may feel calm, and your physical body should feel relaxed. Reiki is so relaxing that sometimes clients may fall asleep during the session. Don’t worry; you will still receive all of the benefits of the session, sleeping or awake.

Is there talking during the session?

Usually, a session is done without talking, and the practitioner may have soft ambient music playing in the background to aid in your relaxation. If you want to communicate something to your practitioner during the session, such as if you are cold or too warm, if you would like them to adjust the music, if you are feeling a sensation you would like to discuss, if something feels uncomfortable for you, if you have a question or issue, then do speak up at any time during the session. We want the best for you and make your session the best experience possible. Also, we may ask you after the session if there is anything you would like to share, and you may do so at your option. This is good feedback for us to note for planning your next session.

What does Reiki healing feel like?

You may feel slight tingling, heat, energy, or nothing at the practitioner’s hand placements. The sensations or lack of them are not a barometer of the Reiki; they are just how your particular body senses energy. You may feel peace and calm in your mind or physically in general. It differs for all clients, but deep relaxation is almost always felt.

Can I drive after my session?

Yes, after the relaxation of your session, you will be fully awake but feel more grounded and centered. A five-minute brisk walk to your car or other transportation will add to your groundedness. Be sure that you are fully awake and alert before driving in general.

After I leave my session, should I do anything special?

Please drink plenty of water to hydrate your body as your body’s energy system may be moving at a more optimum rate, so please care for yourself with water and healthy food during the day. It is beneficial to spend some quiet time that day or evening after your session to journal or to contemplate, as you may have some insights and further mental clarity as your body continues to process the Reiki session.

Are there any medical conditions where I should not receive Reiki?

Reiki is a beautiful complement to a health or wellness plan. It supports your work with your primary care providers. Always check with your doctor before starting any new health program. Reiki is not meant to replace advice from a medical professional.

Should I have a Reiki session if I have the flu or a contagious disease?

No. Please wait until you are feeling better and not contagious before scheduling a session. We are happy to reschedule your appointment.  Please call, text or email us to reschedule if this happens.

Can you have too much Reiki?

No, Reiki is beneficial and works with your body’s energy. In fact, your own energetic body is in control of how much Reiki it wants and needs during the session and utilizes it accordingly. Like breathing, you will comfortably take in as much as you need to support yourself.
