HANDS ON REIKI THERAPY
WHAT IS HANDS ON REIKI?
Hands-on Reiki is a direct, in person experience where the Reiki Practitioner places their hands on a series of prescribed positions on your body (mainly your torso and head) and you (or your energy body) draws the Reiki via the Practitioner as the conduit or 'plug-in' for as long as you need the Reiki for each position.
The original practice of Reiki requires that the Reiki Pracitioner's hands are place directly on the recipient's body. These days some Reiki Practitioners ‘hover’ their hands above the positions rather than place their hands directly on the body, although this not best practice. 'Hovering,' however, can be useful when a client has an injury and it would be too painful to receive hands-on Reiki, but otherwise hands-on is best practice as taught and intended by Reiki Founder, Dr. Usui.
WHAT TO EXPECT
FOR YOUR HANDS-ON REIKI THERAPY SESSION
Your Hands-on Reiki session will take place at a private studio located in Fitzroy, Melbourne (details will be provided upon booking an appointment).
The Reiki session will begin with a discussion introducing and describing what Reiki is, how the session will be conducted, what you might expect to experience or feel during the session, any questions you may have and what you are hoping to achieve from your Reiki treatment.
COMMENCING YOUR REIKI SESSION
Once you feel comfortable with what to expect from the session ahead, you will lie down on the comfortable Reiki table (fully clothed), and a light sheet or blanket will be placed over you to keep you comfortable for the duration of the session.
REIKI HAND POSITIONS
Your Practitioner will then be seated on a chair next to you and throughout the Reiki session, will place their hands on a series of prescribed positions on your body (mainly your torso and head), connecting you to the Reiki and allow you to draw as much as you need in each of the hand positions. The timing of each position varies according to your individual and unique needs. Read more about 'timing of Reiki hand positions'.
Soft, calming ambient music will be played for the duration of your Reiki session to promote a deep state of relaxation.
Generally there is little to no talking during the treatment to allow you to become fully relaxed and move deeply into the Energy’s work, although, you are encouraged to communicate with your Reiki Practitioner if necessary for your comfort. This is your time and your healing and your comfort is paramount.
CONCLUSION OF THE REIKI SESSION
At the end of the session, you will enjoy a warm organic herbal tea to help you gently ‘come back’ into the world and to allow you the opportunity and space to debrief about anything you may wish to discuss about your experience during the Reiki session and any insights or questions you may have.
HANDS-ON REIKI THERAPY?
Whether you receive Reiki in person or through Distance Healing, the Reiki you will receive is the same.
Some people prefer the hands-on Reiki treatment because of the direct experience with the Reiki energy which can be a really beautiful and powerful experience. Often, clients report feeling comforted from being unconditionally touched and ‘held’ in the energies. It is intimate and nurturing, and by mere fact that they are still and quiet and the Reiki Practitioner's hands are directly on their body, clients are often able to directly connect and feel Reiki energy.
Some clients also prefer to receive the Reiki in person because of the tranquil atmosphere of the healing room and the fact that the session allows them space and time to enjoy a period of quietness and deep relaxation away from their busy lives. It offers a moment to stop and become quiet. The fact is, life can be quite hectic and no doubt we could all really do with that sort of time out!
