Reiki Treatment Sessions
Although every center may offer sessions that differ slightly, at the Lotus Wellness Center, Reiki sessions will involve a fully clothed client who will lay comfortably on a treatment table. The Palatine, IL Reiki treatment practitioner’s hands will remain in a stationary position just on or slightly above certain points on the body. No skin is ever manipulated or massaged.
As the session moves forward, the client may begin to feel warmth or tingling wherever the hands are placed. A sense of peace and comfort may come over the client’s mind. Other people talk about feeling light waves or pulsations flowing throughout their body, and there are some who don’t feel anything physical, but rather notice a heightened inner connection with him or herself.
When you go to a Reiki treatment session, the intention may be to instill a deep relaxation, promote healing, reduce pain, and decrease other symptoms you are experiencing.
Are you feeling out of balance?
Are you struggling with deeply rooted emotional issues and can’t seem to let them go?
Do you want to reconnect with that inner you?
If so, have you ever considered Reiki sessions?
Reiki treatment in Palatine, Illinois at Lotus Wellness Center involves a special healing practice that enables you to clear your mind and return to a balanced mind, body, and spirit. Reiki can benefit all people, of all ages and address a broad range of issues including:
Inability to focus or concentrate
Reiki is considered to be a safe alternative treatment and commonly integrated into allopathic treatments such as chemotherapy, physical therapy, and pre and post surgery. For those who may be terminally ill Reiki sessions may provide promote a calming sense of acceptance and peace.
Sessions are About Comfort
During a Reiki therapy session, patients are clothed and can either lay on a comfortable massage bed or in a recliner chair. Patients who have physical injuries or disabilities, must inform their Reiki practitioner as it is imperative that a person is as comfortable as possible to achieve maximum results. Please wear loose clothing to your Reiki sessions. If you are too focused on tugging or adjusting your clothes, it can become a distraction which takes away from the session.
A Practitioner Uses Hands and Other Tools
A Reiki practitioner at Lotus Wellness Center uses his or her hands to eliminate energy blockages and help restore a natural flow to the body. Tools such as chakra wands, gentle music, and crystals may be used. There are seven chakras, and each serves a function related to energy flow within the human body. Stress, anxiety, and depression can be a result of blockages or interferences among these chakras. A practitioner of Reiki treatment in Palatine may use a mixture of direct and non-direct contact, along with the concept of chakras when working with a patient.
After the Reiki Session
It is common for people to feel an immense sense of relief and peace in both mind and body after a Reiki session. However, it is important to note that sometimes these sessions can provoke a mild degree of fatigue, as the body goes through a detoxification process. This is normal and should subside within 24 hours. We encourage patients to drink plenty of water, eat healthy meals, reflect through journaling, and treat themselves kindly for the rest of the day. Taking it easy on your mind and body is key after a Reiki session.
Combining Treatment Approaches
When you are looking for ways to relax, promote healing, and reduce stress, some people automatically think of meditation. While this is a great option, not many people realize that they can turn to Reiki and acupuncture for these healing purposes as well. As noted above, Reiki is a relaxation treatment performed by a healer—or in many cases an acupuncturist—where they treat your body as a whole, not just the part that is in pain or is causing stress. It is a form of energy healing that is considered to be very safe.
Similarly, acupuncture also works to heal you of your ailments—both physical and mental—to unblock your qi in your body. If you are interested in these healing services and would like to learn how they can be used together, please reach out to Lotus Wellness Center for your Palatine, Illinois Reiki treatment and acupuncture sessions.
When it comes to different medical procedures, many patients are often cautioned to be careful about mixing and matching medicines, surgeries, or other treatments because there is a fear that the two will do more harm than good. However, Reiki and acupuncture can not only be used at the same time, but many acupuncturists encourage this type of “double dose” healing.
While both are considered safe to use for healing purposes, there are certain differences when it comes to the two practices. For example, acupuncture is much less “hands on” for the client and usually involves them laying down or sitting while their acupuncturist pricks them with very thin, tiny needles. It involves very little from the person receiving acupuncture. On the other hand, the Reiki practitioner’s power to heal relies very heavily on the client instead of the person performing the act. The person practicing Reiki will do so with minimal contact with the client’s body, and Reiki healing can even be done over a great distance. This is not possible when it comes to acupuncture.
Pros of Using Reiki and Acupuncture Together
Often times, an acupuncturist will use Reiki techniques before and after an acupuncture session. For example, many people who are fearful of needles may need extra help to calm down and relax before their session, and employing an Illinois Reiki treatment prior to that can help. Patients who are looking for mental or physical healing can find a great deal of relief when it comes to employing both Reiki and acupuncture techniques. Both treatments may be able to help:
Reduce anxiety and stress
Reduce fatigue and insomnia
Eliminate headaches or migraines
Improve your immune system
You to relax after medical treatments, like surgery
Provide you with emotional and spiritual healing
Further, many people who have a physical ailment may not wish to go through surgery or be under the influence of heavy doses of medicine, instead choosing to use more natural methods for healing, like Reiki and acupuncture.
Based upon other clients from the Lotus Wellness Center, many people report an improvement in the way they feel right after their first session. Additional sessions may be recommended to stabilize the results and also strengthen them. In general, if a client is ill four to six treatments are advisable. A Reiki practitioner from the center can discuss this in further detail.
