With today’s hectic life styles, it is of great importance to help people into a state of deep relaxation, and this is where a reiki session can play an important role. It is a quiet time for the client, who will lie comfortably on a reiki table, clothed and covered under a warm blanket. Soothing music playing in the background will start the session. As the reiki practitioner places her hands gently on specific areas of the body, the client may start to feel the energy flowing in as a tingling sensation or as the feeling of heat from her hands. This is the reiki energy drawn in by the client to begin their healing on a mental, emotional, physical or spiritual level. The client may now start to feel a deep sense of calm. When the session is over, they will find themselves rested, relaxed and in a state of peacefulness. The healing energy of this session will stay with them for several days. There are no boundaries or limitations, as reiki is for people of any age or sex –the elderly, women, men, teenagers, children and babies. This modality compliments other medical treatments people may be undergoing such as chemotherapy, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, ALS, etc.
