The spiritual healer will begin to explain how they are trying to help you. After explaining the procedure, the spiritual healer
will then as if you would like to continue on. If you choose to agree, your session will then start. Hand on healing is where
the healer, with your permission, will place their hands on you gently. Or, they can work closely next to you with their
hands, but not touch you – this is classes as hands off healing. Each healer has their own different way of working, so it is
hard to say exactly what will happen on each session. There is a code of conduct issued by their organisation, which they
will adhere to, so they know where and where not to place their hands.
Unless the healer considers the session beneficial if it goes on longer, an average reiki healing session will last around ten
to twenty minutes. Of course, this does vary. When the session first starts, you will be asked to relax your mind. You can
close your eyes at this part. There may be gentle and relaxing music in the background throughout your session also. It is
important to just relax and enjoy yourself in the session, do not try and detect what is going on, you must just relax.
If you are suffering from an illness, your healer will encourage you to be in contact with your doctor on a regular basis. If you
feel any different after having your reiki healing session, you can also tell your doctor. In regards to medical care, medicines,
treatments or surgeries, your doctor will of course, always remain in control.
