Reiki treatments are very relaxing, and many people report sensations of heat, tingling, and seeing colours, which all suggest that the treatment is working. If there is a release of blocked emotional energy, it may feel like there has been a release of energy, and you may find that for a few days after the treatment you have a heightened sense of emotions as your body works with the treatment process.

Throughout the treatment you remain fully clothed, and will lie on a couch.  It is advised that you wear comfortable clothing, and remove any chunky jewellery. You will be asked  if there are any specific problems you are currently experiencing before treatment begins, to ensure that the session is most effective.

Treatment will start at the top of your head, and will gradually work its way down through the main chakras. Some parts of the body may require longer treatment if there is blockage in that specific part of the body. During reiki the practitioner will use very light touch with their hands on the head, front and back of the body, and arms and legs so work can be done with your natural energy system. It is very rare for someone to feel discomfort during a reiki treatment, however if at any stage you do feel discomfort it is important that you make the practitioner aware of this, so they can stop working in that area.

It is important that you drink plenty of water following a reiki treatment, to help remove any natural toxins which may have been released during the session. Many people feel that following a treatment they want to have some quiet time, so try and think about how you can spend the rest of your day relaxing and reflecting on your treatment. Some may find that they feel totally energised and are happy to return to the hub of everyday life, with new vitality.  

The first session will last around one to one and half hours. Following treatments will be approximately one hour.
