The Reiki Page describes an in-person reiki trreatment as follows:
A Reiki treatment consists of the practitioner placing his or her hands on the clients body having only the intent for the energy to flow. There is no complicated rituals to perform. Only the simple exchange of energy between two or more people. Only the simple intent to share healing. Only the intentionality to ease the burdens of another and the willingness to receive.
According to Reiki teachings, the Reiki energy is smart for it knows where to go and what to do. The Reiki practitioner is instructed to allow the energy to flow, without directing the energy. It isn’t necessary to study arcane theories of the universe in order to use Reiki. Simple intent causes the Reiki energy to flow and the intent directs the energy. The best thing for the practitioner to do is nothing, but to get out of the way and allow the energy to do its work. Read More
The International Center for Reiki Training describes the process of a hands-on reiki session as follows:
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. This ability is passed on during an “attunement” given by a Reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy” to improve one’s health and enhance the quality of life.

Restore Naturally (Melbourne, Australia) describes an in-person reiki treatment in the following way:
During a Reiki treatment you are fully clothed while I, and other Reiki practitioners, hold our hands over different areas of your body acting as a “one way hose” for positive Reiki energy.
During a Reiki treatment you may experience pleasant physical sensations such as tingling and warmth or pleasant mental and emotional images. These vary from person to person because everyone experiences Reiki differently and no two Reiki treatments are ever the same.
Since 2002 I have treated hundreds of people with Reiki. After receiving Reiki people commonly people report that they feel:
- more relaxed
- as if they have been meditating
- freer in their body with less physical pain
- freer in their mind as situations that once bothered them no longer do
- Reiki helps restore you to a state of balance by unlocking your body’s natural healing abilities because it directly influences your central nervous system – it allows you to relax.
With Reiki, I can help you to manage:
- Stress, anxiety, grief and depression
- Painful conditions (shoulder, lower back & neck pain, fibromyalgia) that do not respond to other manual therapies
- Life and spiritual challenges
- Your Reiki treatment can compliment other treatments you may already be receiving such as physiotherapy, counseling, psychotherapy, and massage. Read More
