Reiki is both powerful and gentle. It is always beneficial and works to improve the effectiveness of all other forms of therapy, both medical and other holistic modalities. Reiki is done through touch, as a warm and soothing energy flows from the hands of the practitioner, into the client. A session feels like a wonderful, glowing radiance and has many benefits for both client and practitioner.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A REIKI THERAPY SESSION:
On your first visit, your Reiki practitioner will ask you about your general health and medical history. They will ask you why you would like to have Reiki and discuss a treatment plan with you.
You will be fully clothed and will typically rest on a massage table or mat on the floor while the therapy takes place. However, it is just as easy to perform this therapy on a chair or couch if the client is unable to get on the table or down on the floor due to physical issues occurring at that time.
Your Reiki practitioner might dim the lights and play soothing music. They put their hands on, or a few inches above your body. They will move their hands across your body, usually starting at your head and working down to your feet, but will also focus on particular areas of the body.
The aim is to move and balance the energy within and around your body and get rid of any energy blocks needed to encourage physical healing and strengthen your energy.
You might feel a tingling sensation, a deep relaxation, warmth or coolness throughout your body.
A session usually lasts between 30 minutes and an hour. Many practitioners say you will get the best results from 3 sessions within a fairly short space of time before taking a longer break in-between treatments.
You might feel thirsty after a session. It can help to drink plenty of water and avoid strong caffeine based drinks, such as coffee.
You may feel deeply relaxed, and resting at home afterward can help you get the full benefit of the treatment.
Reiki can be sent remotely. An appropriately trained practitioner can send healing over a distance. So you can be in your own home having Reiki from a person elsewhere.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A DISTANCE REIKI SESSION:
Distance Reiki is a wonderful option for people who cannot come in for a hand on Reiki session, such as those that are ill, living in a different location or recently out of surgery having limited mobility. Reiki can be sent to a person, animal, situation, time or place. Sending Reiki is possible because energy is not confined and can transcend time and space so it is easily transmitted anywhere.
Distance Reiki works according to the Hermetic Law of Similarity, which holds that we are all connected, as we are all energy matter and part of a larger whole. As such, invoking this law during a distance Reiki session allows the practitioner to link to the energy field of the recipient.
Setting up a mutual time is helpful so the recipient is open to receiving the energy. However, distance Reiki can be sent to anyone, anywhere and at any time, though permission should, in some way, be invoked or received.

REIKI AND QUANTUM PHYSICS:
Reiki is a healing modality that increases the flow of energy (ki) in the body. This energy is also referred to as Chi in Chinese, Prana in Sanskrit and biofield in science. It is the life-force that animates all living things. Reiki is being used increasingly alongside conventional medicine to treat the patient holistically.
Anyone who has experienced the benefits of a Reiki healing session doesn't need a study to know that Reiki really works. But studies have been done. A study using electrodermal screening (a method for the detection of functional disorders and disease, through transdermal micro electric examination of the skin) showed that Reiki has "quantifiable benefits in the strengthening of the immune system." (Alternative Therapies)
This study showed an improvement in spleen, immune and nervous system function quantified by electrodermal screening. A reduction of pain, an increase in relaxation and more mobility was described by patients with chronic conditions such as multiple sclerosis, lupus, fibromyalgia and thyroid goiter.
Reiki healing is based on the premise that there is a Universal Life Force Energy that circulates throughout the universe and connects all living things. This force has innate healing powers that know if the body is out of balance or damaged in some way. Reiki practitioners act as channels for this energy, enabling it to enter a person's body and to go straight to the cause of the disease. The energy works by restoring the body to a state of balance and when this balance is achieved, overall physical health is improved.
This understanding of the body as a system of energy is supported by science. Quantum physics explains the nature and behavior of matter and energy on the atomic and sub-atomic levels, suggests that everything in our universe is made up entirely of energy. Therefore our bodies, our emotions and our thoughts are also entirely comprised of energy. When we keep that in mind it becomes easier to understand how the healing energy of Reiki works.
The Reiki practitioner acts as a channel for the Universal Life Force Energy and directs it into the body to support a rebalancing of the body, the mind, and the emotions, as well as spiritual consciousness. These states are seen as different levels of the body/reality which, when working in harmony together, create the health and well-being of each individual. The Reiki healing practice teaches that in order to maintain or attain a state of health and well-being, a person must have all of these states working together in harmony and balance.
Chronic stress tends to weaken and suppress our immune system's ability to best fight against colds, cases of flu, and other forms of infection. So the next time you decide to work on strengthening your immune system, consider getting a Reiki treatment. It can be an effective part of your program towards achieving optimum health and well-being.
