Reiki is an energy transfer therapy of holistic nature. Reiki treatments work on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual layers of the body. To best prepare you for your session, here is a list of recommendations as well as possible side-effects and experiences prior, during and after the treatment:


  • It is recommended that you do not schedule any other energy therapy sessions (acupuncture, singing bowl healing, gongs baths, ayahuasca or other plant medicine treatments, psychedelic or psychotherapy sessions) within 48 hours before or after your Reiki treatment. 

       *Please send a message in advance if these are a part of your habit or lifestyle. 

  • Please plan to have time to rest, reflect and journal after the treatment to integrate the energetic shifts and make note of the timelines, memories and layers arising to be healed. 

  • Bring a journal or notebook to write down messages, thoughts, feelings and sensations that arise during the session. 


  • Relax! Try to stay open to the possibility of healing. 

  • Wear loose and comfortable clothing. 

  • For remote, online sessions, ensure you are in a quiet space where you can lie down undisturbed. Cover yourself with a blanket, switch off your cellphone, draw the curtains and use an eye pillow if you have one. 

  • During the treatment you may feel light pressure, coolness or warmth, gentle pulsation or tingling sensations. You may see lights, colors or images but not always. You may fall into a deep sleep but if you have a lot of mental congestions, you may be restless or have difficulty relaxing. If strong emotions or past traumas rise to the surface, this can sometimes be uncomfortable. Healing is not always pleasant. Please know that all of these experiences are normal. The Reiki energy transfer is working on deep levels, even if you are not conscious of it during the actual treatment. 

  • A standard Reiki session consists of 60 minute hands-on or remote energy transfer followed by 30 minutes treatment discussion. It is recommended to take notes during the discussion.  


  • Stay hydrated! Please drink plenty of water as your body will be detoxing for up to 72 hours after your treatment. 

  • Due to the energetic clearing, you may experience mild headaches and/or may be more sensitive to light, especially if you do not stay hydrated. 

  • It is normal to feel more emotional and sensitive after a session and you may have more potent dreams the night after, as layers of past traumas and experiences are rising to the surface to be witnessed and healed. 

  • It is not unusual for female clients to have an early menstruation the day after a treatment, especially when there is a lot of clearing in the Sacral Chakra. This is nothing to be alarmed about. It is an indication of the healing process. 

  • If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
