Each person's Reiki sessions are different because each person and practitioner is unique. To receive Reiki, most people lie on a table fully clothed, so wear comfortable clothing. The technique is so adaptable that you can receive it in almost any setting, in a chair or hospital bed, and through casts and bandages. Universal energy flows, not from the practitioner but rather through the practitioner, to you. You will receive the amount of energy you need and are willing to receive to bring your mind and body into balance.
Though Reiki techniques appear simple, the effects can feel profound. Most people experience deep relaxation. You may also feel tingling, pulsing, a feeling of warmth and comfort, or you may fall asleep.
Results can be subtle. Some recipients say they feel little during the session, but afterwards enjoy a sense of calm and well-being, and a deep, restful sleep. It is possible you could experience powerful sensations or emotions during or after a session. Your practitioner will want to hear about your responses to the degree you are comfortable sharing them.
