Reiki Healing is a Japanese energy balancing technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes physical healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the knowledge that Ki (life force energy) flows through us and is what beings life.
If one’s Ki is low, then you are more susceptible to illness and injury. If you Ki is high, then you are more capable of quick recovery and can maintain a happier disposition. Reiki is a simple, safe and natural method of healing and self-improvement.
What does a typical session look like?
Receiving Reiki from Practitioner Liam is a simple process. The Client lies on the healing table and Practitioner Liam will clear the atmosphere using the technique of smudging, aromatherapy or incense lighting. He will then measure and gauge the Ki, energy levels, of the client.
Following, he will gently lay his hands on the Client’s body in a series of predesignated hand positions; generally starting from the head, down to the neck, shoulders, torso, abdomen, knees, legs and finally ending at the feet. If preferred, he can hover his hands or a pillow can be used instead of direct hand-to-body contact.
The Ki, Chi or life force energy, is drawn through Practitioner Liam into the Client. It important to note that the Source of Healing is the Ki itself and not Practitioner Liam. The Client remains clothed throughout the session, removing only shoes and bulky jewelry.
How many sessions will I need?
Whilst a single Reiki treatment is beneficial for your system, bringing a sense of calm and peacefulness as well as short-term physical benefits, the best results are obtained through having a course of treatments; 4-6 sessions at weekly intervals.
The effects of Reiki compound cumulatively. Receiving multiple sessions helps to produce long-term beneficial changes for your Being on many levels
Will I feel anything?
During active treatment, Clients experience a radiant glow around and, in some cases, flowing through them. Reiki treats the whole Being, including the Body, Mind, Emotions, & Spirit, creating many beneficial effects.
Clients report feeling heat from Practitioners Liam’s hands, tingling, a feeling of floating, sinking, or nothing at all. Almost all Clients experience “gurgling” a sound and feeling produced by energy moving rapidly through the torso. This is completely normal and should not be frowned upon. If you feel the need to release (cry, yell, expel fumes, hum, sing, etc.) please do so.
I encourage you to breathe deep andallow the energy to flow where it needs to.
Are there any side effects?

For these reasons it is very important to drink water immediately after your session and drink tea or some other flavored water based beverage to ensure vitamins and minerals are being dispersed where needed.
