North Shore Reiki
You should be dressed in simple, loose fitting clothing. Any comfortable clothing is acceptable, but sweats, T-shirts and loose pants or shorts work best. Tight garments and belts are not conducive to relaxation. A Reiki practitioner always appreciates your bringing a pair of fresh clean socks with you to change into. Shoes are always removed.
The Right Environment
To receive the full Reiki experience, and to facilitate "letting go" into a meditative, relaxed state... a quiet, safe place is required. Distractions such as ringing telephones or pagers in the office environment will be eliminated; as will other interruptions. We will ask you to turn off your cell phones and pagers as well. If you wish, you may bring a companion with you to your session. They will be welcome to wait for you in the waiting room. Every effort is made to ensure a relaxing and spiritually enriching experience. You'll receive your Reiki treatment while reclining on a massage table in a softly lit or candle lit, incense scented environment. Meditative music is offered to enhance your relaxation.
If you've been thinking about having a Reiki treatment, you're probably wondering what to expect. Before I begin the treatment, I will explain the hand positions to you, since most of your body or your field of energy will be touched. Hands are placed with respect not to violate and individual's body privacy. Modifications can always be made to the traditional hand positions to respect any additional touch issues you may have.
The receiver will often feel warmth, tingling, or both where the practitioner's hands are placed. A practitioner's touch is always gentle, light, and usually motionless, except when changing hand positions; there is no massage or body manipulation.
