Frequently asked questionS
Reiki is usually administered by light touch to fully clothed recipients that are either sitting comfortably or lying down. The hands are placed on positions on the head, and front and back of the torso in a sequence so as to provide a full treatment covering all the major organs and glands of the body. Reiki can also be given with the hands a couple of inches from the body in cases of surgical clients, burns, or any other time direct touch may not be appropriate with equal results. The treatment sessions are given in spa like conditions with gentle music and the sound of water falls in the background.
How many treatments are necessary?
Each individual is on their unique healing journey and hence a general statement cannot be made. Mrs. Takata recommended that initially the first few sessions 1-4 be taken close together to start the healing process. A maintenance schedule of treatment can be discussed after the first treatment. Self treatment is highly recommended between sessions which is especially important in chronic cases of illness. See class schedules page for more information. In situations where the client cannot administer Reiki to themselves the initiation of caregivers to the practice is recommended.
How often should I get treatments?
It's suggested that the first few 2-4 sessions be taken close together to jump start the healing and relaxation process. A maintenance schedule of treatment can then be discussed with the client.
For General Relaxation, Stress Reduction and Health Maintenance
As with most well-being practices, regular treatment of Reiki prior to any symptom is highly recommended. Reiki is easy to self-administer once you are introduced to its methods of practice.
For Chronic conditions, pre and post surgical treatments.
Treatment schedules can be decided after your initial consultation. Generally, best results are reported with the first few treatments close together in the beginning and then timing additional sessions according to conventional medical treatment schedule.
