What to do Before a Reiki Healing Session


Many of my clients ask how they can best prepare for and receive the most benefits from their Healing session.
Below is a list of ideas to take into consideration both before your healing session. 
Remember, your energy healing is always catered toward your deepest healing, so finding what works best for you is key.
Relax + reflect:
Give yourself at least 30 minutes prior to the session to sit and reflect, particularly checking in with how your body is feeling and anything you are noticing with regards to emotions, thoughts or physical sensations.
Take some time to breathe and also tend to whatever your body's needs might be on that given day. You may also want to reflect on any intentions you want to set for your session, and anything you want to share with your practitioner before you begin.
2. Eat + hydrate
You’ll want to be sure you've eaten and hydrated a few hours before the session, mostly so you will be as comfortable as possible and not distracted by hunger or thirst.
Avoid eating a heavy meal beforehand, however, as you don’t want all of your body’s energy to be directed toward digesting while you’re receiving your treatment.
3. Get comfy
Most practitioners will have you laying down for the majority of your session, so comfort is key for being open to taking on and integrating energy healing.
Make sure you are wearing comfortable clothes. I usually recommend my clients either wear or bring socks since shoes are removed during the session and the feet can get cold.
You’ll also want to use the restroom before the session, and if the position you are in for your session is uncomfortable in any way, communicate this to your practitioner, as s/he will also want to be sure you are as comfortable as possible.
