What to expect during a treatment?

The patient will want to wear loose fitting comfortable clothing. Reiki may be done with a light gentle pressure static touch or my hands may be a few inches/centimeters above your body at the hand positions with no actual touch. There are standard hand placements beginning at your head or feet, avoiding all sensitive body parts. Let me know prior to the session which you prefer, light touch or no touch. Usually a session is done without talking and I have soft ambient music playing in the background to aid in your relaxation. If you want to communicate something to your me during the session, such as if you are cold or too warm, if you would like me to adjust the music, if you are feeling a sensation you would like to discuss, if something feels uncomfortable for you, if you have a question or issue, then do speak up at any time during the session.  You may feel a very slight tingling, heat, or energy, or nothing at all. The sensations or lack of are not a barometer of the Reiki, they are just how your particular body senses energy. You may feel a peace and calm in your mind or physically in general. It is different for all clients but deep relaxation is almost always felt.
