About Treatments


Reiki goes where it is most needed and at the level most beneficial and desired by the client at that time. Reiki energy is neither produced nor manipulated by the practitioner.  The practitioner acts strictly as an aide, or conduit; it is the energy of Reiki itself that is the aid that facilitates a return in balance of the body, mind, emotions and spirit, as well as promote self-healing.

The session begins with a consultation and completion of paperwork.

Clients are fully clothed during a treatment session. The practitioner utilizes hands-on, or hands-off placement on, or just above the client’s body; the client can be lying on the practitioner’s table, or seated in a chair, as well as at a distance for treatment, at which point the energy of Reiki goes where it is most needed, and at the level most beneficial and desired by the client at that time.  Talking during the treatment session is generally kept to a minimum. Relaxing background music may be played.

For animals (both wild and domestic), Reiki is offered generally at a short distance to establish trust, after which Distance (remotely or in the field), or hands-on/or just-off Reiki (or a combination) is then offered.  The animal always has the choice to accept (or reject) Reiki; their wishes are always honored.


Distance Reiki treatments can be offered to clients, both human and animal, anywhere in the world.  The client can be lying down, or sitting still during the appointment; however, the benefits can be received even if the client is active during the session, or asleep, or in groups, such as animals in the field.


Some clients feel nothing during the in-person or distance treatment session.  Some feel a tingling, or gentle surge or pulsating of energy, or warm sensation in local areas, or throughout their entire body.  Some clients have an emotional release and shed tears, perhaps even sob.  Some clients see images or colors, even with their eyes closed.  Some notice improvement during the appointment, or sometimes afterward.  Some do not notice a change for good in themselves, but an improvement in their situation.  Some clients become so relaxed they fall asleep during their appointment, even snore, while some feel energized, and even chatty. Each session is unique, even with the same client.  The one thing they all have in common is that Reiki promotes the highest good.

Long-term results vary. Since we are in a constant state of rebalancing, Reiki practice and treatments are most effective long-term.


After the Reiki session is complete, the client is encouraged to drink water. Continued hydration is helpful after the Reiki appointment to aid in the body’s cleansing process.

A Reiki Treatment facilitates self-healing and well-being.  Clients often feel deep relaxation, and even changes in themselves physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, relationally, and situationally for the better.  For some, it can be truly life-altering in a positive way.

After treatment, there have been some instances where some clients may experience effects such as diarrhea, headache, or fever; some may experience emotional release.  It is temporary and part of the body’s cleansing process and restoring balance; however, any medical concerns should be brought to the attention of the client’s physician, healthcare provider, or veterinarian.
