What to expect from Reiki and Energy Healing
If this is the first time you have received a Reiki or energy healing you may not know what to expect. The process is very simple and relaxing. The client is asked to lie on a massage table fully clothed except for their shoes. Generally the lights are dimmed and relaxing music is playing. The practitioner will lightly place their hands on different areas of the body to direct the flow of energy. The practitioner may follow specific hand placements or may use their intuition in order to guide them. Reiki energy is very intelligent and goes where the client needs it most within the body regardless of the hand placement. This is one of the most wonderful parts of Reiki.
Immediately following a treatment the client is generally very relaxed and peaceful. The client usually notices the following:
- Sense of peace and well being
- Deep relaxation and calm throughout the body
- Reduction in pain and stress
Reiki corrects energy imbalances so a shifting of energy within the body may occur. Negative energies are forced out of the body as the body is filled with higher vibrational more positive energy.
This may cause a detoxification period that may result in some of the following symptoms:
- Increased Urination
- Decreased Appetite
- Upset Stomach
- Increased Fatigue
Not everyone experiences these symptoms but if they do they only last for a day or so. It means your body is flushing out impurities and filling itself with higher more positive energy.
There are a few things a client can do to make the detoxification process more comfortable:
- Drink Plenty of Water
- Eat Lighter Meals
- Take a warm bath with 2 cups Sea Salt or Epsom Salts added to the water
- Get Plenty of Rest
- Allow Yourself Some Extra Space to Process Emotions and Contemplate New Awareness
