Questions & Answers
What should I wear to a Reiki Session?
You are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing, remove glasses, shoes and unnecessary heavy jewellery. Since you remain fully clothed it is important for you to be completely comfortable. The Reiki Intuitive also asks that you leave your mobile phone and other electronic devices off so there are no interruptions during your session.
Should I receive Reiki when I have no apparent physical or emotional issues?
Yes, there are always underlying factors that we may not see or feel the surface. I highly recommend experiencing Reiki on a regular basis for general well-being and overall preventative health. Many people use Reiki to help maintain low blood pressure, for better sleep, as relaxation and other preventative measures; like they would their diet, exercise and meditation routines.
What if I'm seeing a Consultant, Psychologist or complementary care provider?
Reiki does not interfere with medication. Reiki should in no way take the place of medical care. Reiki works in concert, with many complementary treatments such as chiropractic, acupuncture, counselling and physiotherapy.
I encourage you to share with your specialist / medical consultant that you are receiving Reiki so that he/she can take in account as your symptoms and overall wellness may improve.
Do I have to understand what Reiki is to work?
No, Reiki can be difficult to grasp, that is why experiencing Reiki sessions are the only way to better understand how it can help you. Just like you have a circulatory system and muscle system you have and “energy system”. The more you receive Reiki the more you energy system “remembers” to keeps the pathways clear and not hold on the emotions, thoughts feeling that are not naturally good for you.. If you are open at least to trying it you will receive the energy on some level. There are many layers to the energy system. As an experienced Reiki Master Teacher The Reiki Intuitive works to improve your energy system for best possible balance of emotional and physical wellbeing for all her clients.
How often should I receive Reiki?
Like most practices that encourage better health (i.e. exercise, diet) it is best to incorporate Reiki as a part of your health routine. After an initial visit, The Reiki Intuitive has found that men & women, children and animals who receive Reiki at least twice a month have reported notable benefits for themselves or their child, pet or animal.
The Reiki Intuitive encourages you to receive 4 sessions one week apart at first to open up and begin balancing your energy system, although believes It really depends on you as you ultimately decide what is best for you!
Can I receive Reiki during Cancer Treatments?
Yes, we are seeing more and more complimentary care practices as Cancer Centers and local hospitals. Physicians & Nurses are quickly recognising the benefits of relaxation and healing that can take place during Reiki sessions and the positive affect is has on patients. Some examples, are less pain, less pain medication taken, feeling of comfort, clarity is making decisions, less nausea and feeling more balanced after treatments. Reiki should be used only as a complement to your medical treatment plan.
Can I see the Reiki energy?
All living creatures generate and emit radiations. Photons of light, electromagnetic frequencies; heat, sound, and scent are all emitted from our bodies in direct relationship to our internal states. This wonderful and subtle system of exchange contains a wealth of information and through technology we can start to modestly evidence the benefits of Reiki and show you the differences it can make to your energy system as a whole through use of Kirlian photography.
Kirlian photography introduces a high frequency, high voltage, ultra low current to the object being photographed. In travelling through and reacting with our complex systems, this influx of electrical energy amplifies and makes visible the bodies’ biological and energetic exchange. The camera and the subject interact to produce a corona of multi-frequency energy waves- from low infrared to well past the visible spectrum.
