At your first appointment, you’ll meet with your reiki practitioner. You’ll have a short introduction or chat about the process and your expectations or intentions. Let your practitioner know about any symptoms you want addressed or if there are places in the body on which you’d like them to focus. Also, let the practitioner know if you have any injuries or places that are sensitive to touch. You’ll be instructed to lie down on a treatment table or mat. They will cover you with a blanket. Usually soft, relaxing music will be playing in the background. The practitioner will move their hands around your body. They may touch you lightly or have their hands hoover just above your body. You may experience sensations in the body such as heat or tingling.. Some people report seeing visualizations such as colors or pictures, or having memories appear. Try to allow whatever arises to pass without attaching too much meaning to it. Your experiences may become deeper the more you continue with reiki.

Remove your shoes, jewelry, and glasses before your session, and keep your phone switched off or leave it behind. What to expect after your appointment Drink plenty of water after your session.
