After a Session

What can I expect after my healing session?

Many clients can go so deep into relaxation that they “forget” or “leave” the present state. You may experience a slight disorientation (“floaty” feeling) immediately after your healing session.

I always recommend taking a few minutes to collect yourself before getting off the table, because this will help ensure you are grounded. After a healing session I always advise going home and relaxing for the rest of the day. Do as much self-care as possible!

As the Reiki energy continues to work in your body & re-balance your energy, expect your body to detoxify. If your body is releasing toxins into your bloodstream faster than they can be processed, it may trigger detoxification symptoms. This is temporary as your body adjusts itself back into balance. Be sure to drink plenty of water to assist the detoxification process.

Reiki detox symptoms are minor and temporary in nature, and they should not last longer than 24 hours. If you have any concerns or questions about unexpected symptoms, please call or email me.

Because Reiki causes your body to detoxify, it is essential to drink water to help your body re-adjust and remove toxins. To continue to help facilitate your healing process, please follow the steps below after a session:

  • Drink lots of water to remove any toxins (6-8 glasses/day)
  • Be aware of emotional shifts. Spend some time alone if needed
  • If you have any spiritual or religious practices such as tai chi, yoga, meditation/prayer (spend time nurturing your spiritual connection)
  • Avoid additional toxins, such as caffeine, smoking, and alcohol for a few days
  • Be gentle with yourself and avoid strenuous or stressful activity (including exercise) for a few days if needed. Listen to your body
  • Get plenty of rest
  • Avoid eating a heavy meal after a treatment. Try to keep your diet light while your body is using its energy for healing
  • Eat nutritional foods, lots of colorful produce, grounding greens, nuts, and protein
  • Continue all current medical treatment plans (Reiki is not a substitute for medical or mental health care)
  • Make notes of any experiences you have to share with your Reiki Professional (Me) during your next treatment
  • Having a sea salt or Epsom salt bath will aid in detoxification and reduce symptoms

Awareness is a vital part of wellness. Observe any changes in energy, mood, feelings, memories, thoughts, behaviors, reactions, etc. Healing sessions can bring up deep, underlying issues to the surface if you are paying attention. This will help you identify the root cause of your issue(s) & symptoms.

If you clear up the emotional, mental, or energetic root cause(s) behind your issue(s), you will no longer have the physical symptoms & prevent the cycle.

Reiki reinforces your ability to take responsibility for your own life & helps you make the necessary changes in attitude and lifestyle to promote a happy, healthy life.

The healing doesn’t end after we are done the session. It is up to you to continue to do the work between sessions. I call this “healing homework.”

The effects of Reiki build & gather momentum over time.I recommend booking yourself a treatment every 4-8 weeks to really kick-start your healing process!

It may take a few sessions for you to notice significant improvement. While it is possible for an immediate positive response, you should not expect an instantaneous change for long-standing conditions.
