What to do Before, During and After a Reiki Treatment (In Person or Distance)

Reiki Rundown

Reiki is an energy healing modality discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in 1922 in Japan. Reiki also has roots in Egypt and India.  It is similar to the Christian practice called “Laying of Hands”. Reiki is a combination of two words that basically mean “spiritually guided life force energy”. People who are attuned to Reiki have the ability to tap in to this energy and direct it to other people, items, situations and more. Reiki cannot be used to harm or for evil. It can really only improve, help or heal.

Many people often wonder what, exactly, they should do to prepare for their healing sessions and attunements. Below are some excellent tips to help you reap the benefits of this transformative healing energy.

What to do Before Reiki

Here are some things that you can do before receiving a Reiki session:

  • Do some personal research on Reiki
  • Refrain from using drugs and alcohol for at least 48 hours
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Think about the areas in your life where you’d like to see improvement
  • Meditate
  • Eat grounding foods like root vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds
  • Bathe thoroughly, avoid strong colognes and perfumes, but do wear deodorant

What to do During Reiki

During your Reiki session, you should:

  • If receiving distance Reiki, find or create a comfortable and peaceful area to be undisturbed
  • Wear loose fitting, comfortable clothes
  • Breathe deeply and completely
  • Relax! It may be easier said than done, but just allow the Reiki energy to flow to and through you
  • Focus (or not) on the areas which you wish the Reiki to touch
    • In example: If you’re in pain in a specific place, ask that the energy flow there or envision it going there
  • Call upon your ancestors, deities, spirit team to help you integrate the Reiki

What to do After Reiki

Do this after receiving a healing Reiki session to get the most out of your experience:

  • Take your time getting up or moving after your session
  • Rehydrate your body, drink water
  • Eat a light meal or snack like fruits or a salad
  • Check in with how your body and mind feel
  • Meditate, especially on your experiences
  • Journal your feelings or keep track of any changes you see and feel
  • Get grounded, go outside and put your feet in some grass or soil
  • Continue to be drug and alcohol free
  • Avoid processed and unhealthy foods
  • Schedule another Reiki session 🤗
