Other therapies just treat the symptoms you experience. Reiki works on the root cause of the issue so it (and all symptoms) disappear.

Not everyone is familiar with Reiki, but most people know about acupuncture. So think of Reiki as acupuncture without the needles--while it isn't exactly the same, it has similar results in your body. Reiki works by clearing blockages in your energy field, without turning you to into Frankenstein or that scary guy from Hellraiser!

I'll either use myself or a stuffed animal as your proxy for your session. I'll place my hands above your "body" in specific places to clear your chakras and meridians. If I feel something funky going on in a chakra, I might also break out some crystals to help.

During a session, you might see bright colors or feel tingling. You could get angry or start crying or laughing. You might get messaging that shows you what you need to release. You might fall asleep. Or you might feel absolutely nothing. No matter what happens, Reiki is working, and keeps working, long after your session ends.

Reiki will still flow to where it is most needed. It will work just as effectively as it would if you were in a quiet space. The only difference is if you're busy doing other things during the session, you might not notice anything you feel/see or what comes up.

Reiki is purely positive energy that goes where it is most needed. It absolutely can't hurt you.

No, I do not send you my energy, and therefore cannot cause you any harm. I'm simply a conduit, channeling energy from the universe to you.

Most of the time you'll feel relaxed and ready to take on the world by a Reiki treatment. However, sometimes you can have what's known as a healing crisis. And while it sounds bad, it's actually a great thing. When Reiki gets to the root cause of any issue, toxins that have been stored in your body will be released into the blood stream to be flushed out of your body. When this happens, you might get a headache, stomach ache or feel weak. If this happens, be sure to drink a lot of water, rest and try to eat healthy. And when you feel better, celebrate that you just got rid of something major that was no longer serving you.

Absolutely not. Reiki is not a substitute or replacement for regular medical treatment. If you're under a physician's care, please continue to follow your doctor's advice. Reiki is a complementary therapy not intended to replace your conventional treatments or medication.
