Q: How long should a Reiki session take?
A: It depends! There is no “set time” for a Reiki session. It depends on many things, such as:
- How much time you have to receive the Reiki – You might have an hour long session with a practitioner, or you may have a 10 minute session at an expo. You may receive a short blast of Reiki by distance, or you may receive a distance session that relaxes you so much you fall asleep.
- How much Reiki you need – You might be sick with a flu or down with a severe sprain, and then you’d absorb Reiki for 40 minutes. Or you might be feeling a little stressed, and 10 minutes of Reiki will make a huge difference.
- The method of Reiki used by the practitioner – Some Reiki methods take longer to give (such as Usui), and others take a shorter time (such as Kundalini Reiki). I can send someone a 5-7 minute distance healing with Kundalini Reiki, and the recipient will feel the energy actively working for at least 35 minutes. That’s just how this method works.
We’re all individuals, and we have our own imbalances, which can vary from day to day, person to person, and even hour to hour. You may feel exhausted at the end of the day, or you may wake up feeling sluggish. You may have an “afternoon slump” or be really energized in the evening. These fluctuations are a normal part of living. Reiki helps bring us into balance, and if received regularly (via regular Reiki sessions from a practitioner and self healing if you’re attuned), these fluctuations will feel less dramatic. That’s because we gain the ability to deflect stress, stay grounded and calm, and feel more healthy and empowered in general when we’re in balance. Reiki helps create that balance. It really makes a difference!
