Will I be lying down on a massage table or sitting?
Reiki is usually performed on a client who is 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 your most comfortable for the session.
Am I clothed during my Reiki session?
Yes. Unlike a massage therapy session, you will be fully clothed. Unless, of course, you want to wear loose-fitting comfortable clothing and no accessories.
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. There are standard hand placements beginning at your head or feet, avoiding all sensitive body parts. Let your Practitioner know prior to the session which you prefer, light touch or no touch.
Is one session enough or will I need a series of sessions?

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. 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 though, 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. Your practitioner wants the best for you and wants to make your session the best experience possible. Also, your practitioner 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 your practitioner’s notes for planning your next session
Can you have too much Reiki?
