  • How long is a human Reiki treatment? 

    Reiki treatments are 60 minutes long, however you'll need to allow approximately 90 minutes for your first appointment which includes your 60 minute treatment, plus time needed to complete a New Client Intake form and to allow time for your personal consultation before your treatment. Follow up treatments are approximately 75 minutes, which includes your 60 minute treatment.


    Where are Reiki treatments given?  

    Reiki treatments take place in your equine premises or location where you are competing.  All you have to do is set aside a room or some clear space for me to be able to work in, I’ll bring a portable massage table for you to lie on while you receive your treatment and beautiful soothing music to listen to while you relax and enjoy your treatment.

    If the treatment is for you (and not your horse) you may prefer to visit me in my clinic in Little St, Forster. Simply call me on 0404 470 571 to make an appointment.


    How is a Reiki treatment given? 

    During your Reiki treatment you'll remain fully dressed, removing only your shoes and watch. You’ll also need to loosen any restrictive clothing if necessary but if possible it's best to wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing for your appointment.

    You'll be lying on a padded massage table for most of your treatment with a pillow under your knees and head for support and comfort. Before we begin I’ll take you through some gentle breathing techniques that will help you to relax so that you can gain more out of your treatment. Conversation during a treatment is not encouraged, although you may feel free to ask me questions at anytime during the treatment if you feel the need.

    All you need to do throughout the treatment is close your eyes and allow yourself to relax while I place my hands in various positions on or just above your body, allowing the Reiki energy to flow from my hands to you.


    How soon can I expect results? 
    Most people experience a feeling of deep relaxation and a sense of peacefulness immediately after a Reiki treatment which can last up to several days. Other benefits are more specific to the individual and may include any number of the following after receiving a treatment:  a sense of well-being, calmness, mental clarity, balance, stress reduction, increased energy levels, joy, pain relief, centredness and noticeably increased levels of vitality. The benefits can be felt on an emotional, spiritual or physical level.

    After a Reiki treatment or during a course of treatments you may experience diarrhea, smelly or dark green stools, increased urination, body odour, runny nose, cold symptoms, headache or excessive perspiration. This is a result of the body releasing toxins and should be supported rather than suppressed with medications. These symptoms usually only last a few days and during this time, despite the symptoms most people usually feel quite well. During this time its best to drink lots of fresh water and eat lightly while the body cleanses. If this happens to you, once the detox symptoms have passed you'll probably feel better than you've felt in a long time.


    How often do I need treatments?   

    Ultimately, the answer to this question is up to you.  If you have a specific area that you wish to work on or a health issue then it is recommended that you book a course of 3 weekly one hour appointments to begin with. The healing effects of Reiki treatments build upon one another when they are given close together and the cumulative effect helps to produce long term beneficial changes for you on many levels. Everyone heals at a different rate and healing will vary enormously from person to person. Some may heal very quickly, whereas others with chronic long term issues may take longer to heal.

    If the purpose of your Reiki treatment is for general relaxation then you may prefer to arrange treatments on an 'as needed' basis. 



    I feel healthy, why would I need Reiki? 

    Treatments can be used for specific healing or general relaxation. The most immediate and greatest overall health benefit of Reiki healing energy is that it promotes a sense of deep relaxation by assisting the body to release stress and tension.

    Reiki treatments can be utilised to help maintain health and vitality as well as enhancing relaxation and a sense of wellbeing.  For more information about the physical, emotional and spiritual benefits of Reiki treatments please visit Benefits of Reiki
