Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
During your Reiki session, you will receive energetic realignment while resting comfortably and fully clothed on a treatment table or sitting comfortably supported in a chair. Reiki is offered through light, non-invasive touch as Marlena’s hands are placed and held in a series of locations on your head, torso, and limbs.
Receiving Reiki is a wonderfully passive experience. Don’t try to relax, just let the Reiki relax you. Your state will shift quite naturally as the session proceeds. Meanwhile feel free to daydream, enjoy the music, or simply observe your breath or the sensations of the therapy.
How does if feel? Though deeply relaxing the experience of Reiki is subjective, changeable, and sometimes very subtle. People often experience heat in the area of hand placement, but sometimes the area feels refreshingly cool. Other common experiences are subtle pulsations where the practitioner’s hands are placed or cascading waves of pulsations throughout your body. As the session progresses, you will feel more relaxed. If you become uncomfortable, you can adjust your position at any time. Be sure to ask for anything that will add to your comforts, such as additional support under your knees or a blanket. This is your special time and your practitioner is there to help you.
