What is Reiki?

Reiki is a beneficial healing modality that is extremely popular for the rebalancing of health and wellness. It is based on energetic principles and is practiced in many hospitals, medical settings, and in private practice all around the world.

What is a Reiki Healer?

Not just anyone can call themselves a Reiki Healer. Professional Reiki Healers must complete a series of courses, beginning with Reiki Level 1, often continuing through Reiki Level 2, then onto the Reiki Master Course and practicum. Some Reiki Healers choose to continue their education to become Reiki Master Teachers, where they can empower others with healing through Reiki. I have also attained a higher degree of Reiki training through the Grand Master Degree's which enable me to channel a higher and more refined energy to clients. I have over 20 years of experience working with Reiki so please be assured that you are in good hands. 

How long is a Reiki session?

A session is generally 25-30 minutes but due to each healing session being catered to your needs, they can at times extend to around 45-60 minutes. 

Will I be lying down on a massage table or sitting?

Reiki is performed on a client who is fully clothed and reclined comfortably on a massage table. For those who are not able to lay down or do not feel comfortable doing this, it can be performed on a semi-reclined massage chair or recliner. If you have mobility or pain issues please communicate these during your initial consultation so I can make sure you are comfortable during our healing session. 


Am I clothed during my Reiki session?

Yes. Unlike a massage session, you will be fully clothed. It is recomneded that you wear comfortable loose fitting clothing during your Reiki session. 

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 a few inche above the body. There are standard hand placements beginning at your head or feet, avoiding all sensitive body parts. Please let me know your preferred method of healing during your initial consultation. 

Is one session enough or will I need a series of sessions?

One session is a great start! You will see for yourself how Reiki makes you feel, if it is relaxing, if you feel more clarity after the session. Many people, after trying one session, go on to purchase a series of sessions to progressively work on their current wellness goals.

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. If you have a chronic or current issue, Reiki can be an excellent complement in 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. I want you to be fully relaxed during your Reiki session so if you want to talk, share problems or just chat about everyday things, this is perfectly ok. 

What does Reiki healing feel like?

At the practitioner’s hand placements, you may feel a very slight tingling, heat, or energy, or nothing at all. The sensations or lack of are not a barometer of the effectiveness of Reiki, they are just how your particular body senses energy. You may feel a peace and calm in your mind or physically in general. It is different for all clients but deep relaxation is almost always felt.

Can I drive after my session?

Yes, after the your relaxation of your session you will be in your full awake state, but possibly feel more grounded and centered. A five minute brisk walk to your car or other transportation will add to your groundedness. Be sure that you are fully awake and alert before driving in general.

After I leave my session, should I do anything special?

Please drink plenty of water to hydrate your body as your body’s energy system may be moving at a more optimum rate, so please care for yourself with water and healthy food during the day. It is beneficial to spend some quiet time that day or evening after your session to journal or to contemplate as you may have some insights and further mental clarity as your body continues to process the Reiki session.

Are there any medical conditions where I should not receive Reiki?

Reiki is a wonderful complement in a health or wellness plan. It supports your work with your primary care providers. I will however not offer Reiki to clients who are suffering from any serious mental health issues or are pregnant {within the 1st trimester}. For healing to take place in these situations, I will need a written letter for your GP first. I will also not offer Reiki to anyone under the age of 18 unless a parent or guardian is present during the healing session. 

If I have the flu, covid or other illness's that can be passed to others should I have a Reiki session?

No. As a kindness to me and my other clients, please wait until you are feeling better and not contagious before scheduling a session.

Can you have too much Reiki?

No, Reiki is beneficial and works with your body’s energy. In fact, your own energetic body is in control of how much Reiki it wants and needs during the session and utilizes it accordingly. Like breathing, you will comfortably take in as much as you need to support you.

Do you offer any other treatments alongside Reiki?

Yes, I also offer Crystal Singing Chalice Sound Therapy, Hopi Ear Candling, Navel Candling, Crystal Healing and Angel Reiki Therapy. I am also a trained End of Life Therapist and Bereavement Counsellor.

How much does Reiki cost?

As with any alternative therapy, there is a charge for your healing session. At LivingReiki Therapies, we do not charge a large amount for the healing that we give. All sessions whether it be Reiki, Crystal, Angel Healing or Ear/Navel Candling have a flat fee of £30 to be paid after your session. Home visits are not currently available.
