The practitioner gently places their hands in a series of non-intrusive positions on or near the body. There is no massage or manupulation. It is importaint to remember that the whole person is treated rather than specific areas and the energy will travel to where it is most required.

How much Reiki would I need? A single session may be all you need, but it is best to discuss this with me when we meet. For instance, if you have any specific issues or needs, a series of three sessions quite close together can be very beneficial. In general if you find that helpful changes are taking place, it is a good idea to continue treatment.
