Bienestar en Pinsapo
In a standard treatment Reiki energy flows from the practitioners hands into the client. The client usually lies on a massage table but treatments can also be given while the client is seated or even standing. The client remains fully clothed. The practitioner places their hands on, or near, the client's body in a series of hand positions. These include positions around the head and shoulders, the stomach, and feet. Other, more specific positions may be used based on the clients needs. Each position is held for three to ten minutes depending on how much Reiki the client needs at each position. The whole treatment usually lasts between 45 and 90 minutes.
What one experiences during a Reiki treatment varies somewhat from person to person most clients become extremely relaxed and many fall asleep, sensations range from gentle warmth to a burning, it has been described as like lying in the sun, or having someone moving a hot water bottle up and down your body. Some experience tingling, some have a fabulous firework display play in their heads. In addition, many feel a wonderful radiance that flows through and surrounds them. As the Reiki energy encourages one to let go of all tension, anxiety, fear or other negative feelings a state of peace and well-being is experienced. At the end of the treatment, one feels refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook. Whatever the experience during a session it is the results afterwards that keep people coming back for more.
It's important to remember that, whatever is troubling us, 'we didn't get this way overnight' and we won't 'recover overnight', either. Reiki is not any more magical than any other modality or allopathic medicine. Healing takes commitment and it takes time... one moment at a time.
