Reiki is a spiritual healing art with origins in Japan. Reiki comes from the Japanese word "Rei," which means universal life, and "Ki", which means energy. Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things.
Typically, a Reiki treatment can last between an hour and an hour and a half. Sometimes less and sometimes more – depending on the practitioner. Keep in mind, that no matter the length, you will still reap the healing benefits of Reiki.
During a Reiki treatment, you may feel the energy in the form of sensations like heat, cold, tingly or a pulsing sensation. Although, this may not always be the case. Some people report not ever feeling anything. In terms of what you may experience, you might experience seeing colours, vivid dreams, connection to higher realms or you may just fall asleep. Regardless of what you feel or experience, the healing energy continues to flow through your body and therefore you still continue to reap all the healing benefits that Reiki has to offer.
