Relax, you’re right where you need to be.

Embarking on a new healing journey, such as Reiki or other energy healing modalities, for the first time can open you up to a range of emotions. Curiosity often takes the lead, you may be intrigued by the idea of an energy-based healing practice yet, also skeptical and find yourself asking, is this really for me? It is perfectly normal to feel a bit apprehensive before trying something new. Questions about what the session will be like, how your body will respond, and the unknown aspects of this experience might nag you quite a bit before you begin. Watch this video as Naomi explains her experience in her first Reiki session.

Positive Experiences in Energy Healing Sessions:

Many individuals report an overwhelming sense of relaxation during and after their session. The gentle touch and energy transfer can contribute to a state of deep calmness, releasing tension and stress. Energy healing can facilitate the release of pent-up emotions. Positive physical outcomes are often reported with individuals experiencing relief from chronic pain or discomfort and rather than feeling drained you may find yourself leaving your session feeling invigorated and energized.

Negative Experiences in Energy Healing:

You may feel a bit uneasy or uncomfortable during the initial stages of your session, especially if this is your first time. While emotional release can often be positive for some, it can be challenging for others. Confronting suppressed emotions may bring up temporary feelings of vulnerability and sadness. Some may experience sensations during a session that may feel unsettling, such as the energetic shift that can occur. Others (in rare cases) may feel overstimulated by the energy flow which can lead to sensations of restlessness or difficulty grounding. Skepticism can color the experience for some, those who have strong doubts about the efficiency of energy healing may find it challenging to fully immerse themselves in the session. Always disclose any feelings of discomfort with your practitioner.
