What can you expect from a reilki session? A discussion will usually take place during an initial session giving the client an opportunity to discuss any particular issues they are hoping to address. The client will rest comfortably on a massage table fully clothed. It is hands-on, where the practitioner will apply a light touch in differnet areas of the body in alignment ith the energy centers (Chakras). If the client prefers not to be touched, Reiki can be performed that way too. The Client might feel a warming sensation or a tingling during the session or nothing at all but relaxation.
