What is Reiki Healing?

Reiki, is an alternative healing technique that uses energy to treat many common conditions and complaints, is growing in popularity around the world. It works by transferring energy from your Reiki healer’s hands to your body, targeting energy fields around your body.

Energy blocks can be caused by physical injury or emotional distress. The practice of Reiki will help remove these blocks so your body can heal, but you will want to work with a trained expert in order to receive these benefits.


As you begin searching for an alternative healer such as a Reiki healer, you may wonder how much it will cost for Reiki and what’s involved. We’ve outlined a few of the factors that can affect the cost of your sessions, so read on for more information so you can make a well-informed decision.

Type of Reiki

There are two main categories of Reiki healing, the original Japanese variant and a western variant. Both will offer you healing energy, but you’ll need to know the difference to be sure you choose the method that sounds the best to you.

The Japanese variant focuses on the flow of energy within your body. It sends energy using the hands in an intuitive fashion that is guided by a conversation with your healer. This helps them locate energy blocks to support your healing and guide you to transformative enlightenment. It may also include meditation or other healing practices to augment your Reiki treatment.

The Western type of Reiki relies on a basic framework that approaches the practice in a methodical way. It relies on a set of hand positions to direct energy flow. The healer places their hands evenly over your whole body so your entire body receives reiki treatment. This ensures that all areas of your body are treated, including those that require the most attention and healing.

Motivations & Goals
There can be a variety of reasons why you may be interested in Reiki. It is important to discern what is important to you so you are able to find the right type of Reiki practitioner. But no matter why you’ve turned to Reiki healing when you work with a qualified professional, you are sure to see the best results.

For many, Reiki helps improve their health. It works to remove the energy blocks that can cause pain or develop as a result of it. Different than a massage or physical therapy, it focuses on the healing of energy flow, instead of focusing on muscle pain for instance.

Reiki can also help you work on your mental well-being. Energy blocks can also be emotional in nature. Spending time with your healer will help you remove these energy blocks to improve the flow of your own energy, allowing you a full range of healthy emotions. This will prepare you for daily life so you are ready for anything that comes your way. Others are interested in the spiritual side of Reiki and its energy.

Accepting energy from the universe via your healer can help bring you in tune with the world around you. This can help you become calm or grow in your life so you are progressing along a spiritual journey. In this way, Reiki can be similar to a meditation practice that helps bring you closer to a spiritual destination.

The time spent with your Reiki healer is also known to help your body relax. The nature of Reiki practice brings opens pathways that relieve stress to help you feel more at ease.

Another great option for relaxing and mental well-being is yoga. Taking a custom yoga class with an experienced yoga teacher can help you improve your flexibility while reducing stress. The great thing about yoga is anyone of any experience level can practice whether you're learning beginner poses or ready for more advanced yoga flows.

Length of Reiki Session

When you first begin Reiki healing, you may require more frequent sessions with your expert. But if going several times a week does not work with your schedule, don't stress. You can go at a pace that works for you, whether it is once a week or once a month. Your Reiki healer may recommend coming together more often to start before decreasing your sessions as you see improvements in your daily life.

Sessions are anywhere from thirty minutes or up to an hour, depending on your needs. Keep in mind this can be adjusted with a conversation with your healer. After all, you want to find out something that offers you the most improvement.

Reiki sessions can be held at any time of day, but you may prefer a morning session over an evening. Consider when you feel the most stress or hold in your body. Do you wake up feeling tense or is it the end of the day that has you feeling conflicted? Use this information to guide you to the right choice for your session.

Experience of Reiki Healer

For a transformative Reiki session, you’ll want to find a trained healer to work with. This will ensure that you are receiving the right transfer of energy to improve how you feel, both mentally and physically. So it’s very important to search for someone who lists training and certification on their online profile to ensure you have an expert. 

You may also wish to search for reviews of a Reiki healer for more information. Past clients will share details about how the healer runs their sessions or about the space they use. Use this information to discover if this sounds like a good fit for you.

If you are looking for additional alternative healing services then inquire about whether their primary specialisation is Reiki or if they offer other options such as Acupuncture. Some professionals may have training in multiple alternative healing fields, so it is best to ask.


Reiki sessions usually require a room free of interruptions and distractions. Often, this may include comfortable furniture.

Imagine a space that is set up for a massage and you will be able to picture the right space for Reiki. Healers usually have spaces of their own that they work from or studios. 

This means that if you want a Reiki healer to travel to you, you will need to have a space equipped for the practice. In your home, this may look like a quiet room where you won’t be disturbed.

Choosing between having a healer travel to you or travelling to them will be influenced by the type of space you have available.
