Reiki may be experienced as a flow of energy, mild tingling, warmth, coolness, other sensations, or nothing at all. Reiki is deeply relaxing and has a profoundly calming effect. It is a good idea to rest for a while afterward and drink plenty of water over the next few days.
The beneficial effects may be felt for several days.
A session is usually carried out  lying down or sitting, in a comfortable and peaceful environment. There is no need to remove any clothing as Reiki energy passes easily through all materials, including plaster casts.

Hands are placed gently on or over the body.

Reiki’s gentle energy is easily adapted to most medical conditions and may be used safely by people of all ages, including the newborn, pregnant mothers, surgical patients, the frail and the elderly, in any situation.
Be responsive to the needs of your body, resting if tired is vital, and allow the energy to continue its work after the session ends.
