What to Expect
What will I experience during my session?
All Reiki practitioners have their own style. I use a lot of guided meditation and visuals in mine. A session consists of you lying on a massage table completely clothed with a blanket and pillow. To help you relax, lights are dim, oils are diffusing, and soft music is playing. For a distance session, I recommend providing yourself with this setting to meditate and relax, but it is not required. We begin by setting your intentions (not expectations) of what you would like to get out of your session. I use a series of hand placements to check your energy, help you release energetic blockages, and invite healing into your energetic and physical body. Reiki is typically done with light physical touch, but it can also be done hands free. I talk you through the process as I go along. When done distantly, I send you a typed summary of what I found and helped you release. You might feel emotions arise or past memories come up that your body is ready to release. Reiki is very gentle, and most people feel very relaxed, balanced, and at peace afterwards.
What time and money commitment is entailed in learning Reiki?
One class is 8 hours long on a Saturday from 9am-5pm. There are 4 classes total. The first level gets you started, and then you can decide from there how much further you want to take it. There is a 21 day homework time after each class before you are given the certificate. That is how your confidence grows as you practice. You receive one-on-one mentoring from me, and the class sizes are small. By taking one class a month, you can take all four levels in four months. The fourth level is for those who want to start their own practice and/or teach reiki to others. My current prices are: Level 1 $250. Level 2 $300. Level 3 $300. Level 4 $350. (Total of $1,200 if you choose to take all 4)
What is your cancellation policy?
I ask that you be mindful and considerate of the time that I have set aside for you. Please give me at least 24 hour advance notice to either reschedule or cancel your session. Distance sessions are able to be performed while you are sleeping or at work. I do not offer refunds once you have paid for a session or class online. No-shows are charged the full amount for their session or class.
Does a mother's touch REIKI issue Reiki certification?
Yes, I am a Master Reiki Teacher. Only a Reiki Master can give attunements and certification to others. I personally offer the attunements and certification through my Reiki Level 1-4 classes. I am certified in and teach the traditional Usui method of Reiki. I use The Reiki Manual by Penelope Quest in addition to my personal supplemental curriculum.
