What Is Distance Reiki Healing?
Distance Reiki healing is a technique that allows the practitioner to offer a Reiki session without the client being in the same room or geographic location. Distance Healing is also sometimes referred to as the Absentee Reiki technique. In other words, the practitioner is able to transmit Reiki (otherwise known as spiritual energy, qi or prana) beyond physical touch.
How Does The Distance Reiki Session Work?
You can schedule a Distance Reiki session for 1 or 1.5 hours long.
The session takes place over a telephone call. We will have an initial conversation and set an intention of what you want the session to support. For example, you can request help with a challenge, goal, or physical issue.
I prepare for the session the same way as I do for an in-person treatment. I focuses on you and direct Reiki energy to positions on the body similar to the way I do when a client is in my clinic on the massage table. At the end of our session I share with you what I experiences & messages come though.
How To Prepare For Your Session:
Find a comfortable place to sit or lie down. While it’s not necessary for the treatment, if you like you can create a healing space for yourself by:
- Meditating or offering a prayer beforehand
- Setting your intention to heal yourself
- Lighting a candle
- Playing relaxing music
- Journaling about what you want from the session before, or about what you notice after
What To Expect:
Clients often notice physical sensations during the Distance Reiki session, just as they might when receiving a session in person. These might include warmth, tingling, or a sense of peace and relaxation. You might also notice the mind calming down or the alleviation of physical symptoms.
Sometimes people feel quite alert and aware during the session, while others drift off. Either way is best.
Potential benefits include: (& are the same as an in-person session)
- Helps you ground and center yourself, similar to the benefits of meditation
- Eases anxiety and depression
- Improves sleep
- Balances mood and your emotions
- Enhances your body’s ability to balance and heal itself
- Relieves pain and physical discomfort
At the end of the session, take a few minutes (longer if you like) to integrate everything from the session, taking a few deep breaths and sitting up slowly. Listen to your body and rest and move accordingly.
When Is Distance Reiki Appropriate?
Distance Reiki is ideal if you can’t make it to my clinic for whatever reason: you live outside the Northern Beaches, you’re unwell, or you prefer a session in the comfort of your own home or office.
Does Distance Reiki Healing work?
While we often forget this, we are all interconnected. In this way, you can receive healing regardless of time and geography. You can think about this interconnectedness at the beginning of the treatment. This is very helpful for the linear, analytical mind, which sees everything as separate, in a way similar to the oneness state achieved through meditation.
