what to expect

Reiki is a non-invasive healing modality. Each Reiki treatment is an individualized experience. The following is what to expect for an
in-person treatment.




Please buffer in 15 minutes pre- and post-session for us to discuss the experience and any questions or concerns you may have. The session ranges from 60 to 90 min long depending on your needs.

Pre Session


  • If it's your first visit, you will need to fill out this form. This is only required for your first session. You can also fill it out in advance to save time) We will discuss any issues or concerns you would like to focus on.

  • Please bring or wear comfortable clothing if possible. Remove your shoes and any accessories.

During Session

  • You will start out lying face up on a massage table and end lying face down (fully clothed).

  • The room will be dimly lit with the optional use of soft music and essential oils for a tranquil experience.

  • You will experience a guided meditation to prepare you for the session. 

  • A chakra assessment will be conducted pre- and post-treatment.

  • Crystals with various properties and associated with each of the major chakras will be used to help cleanse, activate, or align energy centres. They are used to enhance the experience and do not alter or take away from the Reiki treatment.

  • Light touch therapy will be used through a series of hand placements throughout your body. There may be additional placements if needed (e.g. in the case of an injury or surgical scar). Please indicate prior to the session whether you prefer light touch or no touch.

  • Although each experience is personal, most people report feeling relaxed during the session. Some people experience heat, coolness, or a wave-like sensation from the practitioner's hands, some see colours and/or remember past traumas, while others feel nothing at all.

  • Falling asleep during a session is quite common. Not to worry, you will still receive the benefits of the session regardless of whether you are awake or not.

  • We will end with a debrief of the experience, application of medicinal aromatherapy (if desired), and any suggested affirmations and chakra balancing practices. 


Post Session
  • After your session, you may feel a bit dizzy or disoriented. This is normal and will pass. Take your time getting up.

  • The experience within the next few days can range from calmness and joy to tiredness and possibly flu-like symptoms. As we heal, expand and release, we bring to the surface what may have been buried. As these energies clear, our bodies may react. This is part of the healing process.

  • Drink plenty of water to continue the detoxification.
