Reiki is a beneficial healing modality that is very popular and utilised for health and wellness. It is based on energetic principles and is practiced in many hospitals, medical settings, and in private practice all around the world.

How long is a Reiki session?

A BEMASS Reiki session is generally 90 minutes to two-hour sessions. We first pinpoint exactly what's holding you back, or causing your symptoms, what the causes are and then work with you to release them so you can move forward in the relaxed Reiki session. The first part of the session is 15 to 30 minutes getting to know your goals for the session, and collating the information you will release using the BEMASS diagnostic sway technique

Will I be lying down on a massage table or sitting?

Reiki is usually performed on a client who is fully reclined comfortably on a massage table. It also may be performed on a client who is semi-reclined on a massage chair or recliner. If you have mobility or pain issues please communicate these to so you can be made comfortable in a chair for the session.

Am I clothed during my Reiki session?

Yes. Unlike a massage therapy session, you will be fully clothed. We are working with your energy, and clothes are not a problem! You will want to wear loose-fitting comfortable clothing. BEMASS Reiki is a hands-on experience, so to help you identify where in your body you are holding resistances,  tighter-fitting clothing is beneficial. 

Will the Reiki Practitioner’s hands touch me in any way?

At your option. Reiki may be done with a light gentle pressure static touch or the Practitioner’s hands maybe a few inches/centimeters above your body at the hand positions with no actual touch. There are standard hand placements beginning at your head or feet, avoiding all sensitive body parts. Let your Practitioner know prior to the session which you prefer, light touch or no touch.

What will I feel during the session?

Most clients feel a sense of relaxation and peace. The mind may feel calm and your physical body should feel relaxed. Reiki is so relaxing that sometimes clients may fall asleep during the session. Don’t worry though, you will still receive all of the benefits of the session, sleeping or awake. You may feel tingling or warmth in the areas that are being worked on. You can also experience emotions coming up, or even visualise old memories. Reiki will help you let them go of any resistance or emotions easily. As they come into your awareness from your subconscious you are guided to release them. 

Is there talking during the session?

Usually, a session is done without talking and the practitioner may have soft ambient music playing in the background to aid in your relaxation. which You may want to communicate something to your practitioner during the session if you are cold or too warm, what emotions are coming up, any sensations you feel in your body can be worked on and aid in your release resistance from your body, energy mind soul - the same as we do in the BEMASS meditations.  

The practitioner may also ask you to breathe out to release tension as you proceed through the session. If you are feeling a sensation you would like to discuss, if something feels uncomfortable for you, if you have a question or issue, then do speak up at any time during the session. Your practitioner wants the best for you and wants to make your session the best experience possible.


Also, your practitioner may ask you after the session if there is anything you would like to share and you may do so at your option. This is good feedback for your practitioner’s notes for planning your next session.
