Reiki is a Japanese technique that is used to heal physical and mental trauma, and to support mental clarity and spiritual well-being.
In Japanese, the word “rei” refers to a higher intelligence that permeates all living and nonliving entities and guides the inherent functioning of the universe. The word “ki” refers to the nonphysical energy that flows through everything that is alive, including plants, animals, and human beings—because of this, ki is also often called “life force energy,” and is known as qi or chi from other lineages. The combination of these two words is what defines reiki as “spiritually guided life-force energy.”
To administer Reiki, a practitioner channels life force energy through his or her hands unto another. It’s said that the aforementioned spiritual guidance enables the Reiki to flow through the affected parts of the subject’s energy field and charges them with positive energy. It raises awareness in and around the physical body where negative thoughts and feelings are contained. This causes the negative energy—such as stress, anxiety, physical pain, sadness, confusion, etc.—to loosen its grip, allowing the touch of the Reiki healer to swoop in and clarify the energy pathways.

Some Things You May Experience During A Session
Some fall asleep
Some warmth, cold or a tingling sensation from the Energy Reiki energy
Gurgling and sounds from your stomach
Most experience a reduction in pain or sometimes an elimination of the pain in first session
Some more sensitive people may even have spiritual or visual experience
Temperature changes, hot and cold, wind, some even experience seeing colours, images, memories and different feelings in and around the body’s; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
This is just a short list of what someone may experience during a session. Everyone is different and deals with healing differently. Keeping in mind that not everyone feels or sees things during treatments and that this is not an indication that the treatment is working or not. Energy Reiki healing ALWAYS occurs and you may or may not feel what is happening. And it is said that sometimes when all is calm and quite that this is when the most profound healing is occurring.
What may happen after a session?
During a healing crisis, a great deal of toxins may be pulled out of body tissues and put back into the circulation in order to be eliminated. During this process, some uncomfortable symptoms may occur, such as:
Release of emotions and feelings
Pains and aches, such as headaches, low back pain, joint pain, etc.
Skin discharges, unusual sweating and body odors
Frequent urination, diarrhea or constipation
Temporary cessation of menstruation, or decrease in sexual desire
Mental irritability, restless dreams, etc.
The healing crisis may last from a few hours to a few days; only in rare cases will it last a few weeks. The healthier our general condition, the fewer symptoms there will be. The more the body has to clean up, the stronger and/or the longer will be the discharge reactions.
