Reiki Session Questions

Question: What happens in a Reiki session?

Answer: During a Reiki session, the client lies on a massage table fully-clothed, usually starting on the back and then turning over on the stomach. The practitioner places his hands lightly on the body, or just above, usually starting at the head and working down towards the feet. The client is encouraged to relax and often feels a sense of flowing heat, coolness, or tingling.

Clients often report that they feel more relaxed and balanced after a session, while also feeling a greater sense of energy and well-being.

Question: How does the Reiki energy work to provide healing?

Answer: The client's "inner healer" or immune system draws the energy into the energy field or aura. This helps to eliminate energetic "blockages" that are often one source of pain. With the clearing of these blockages, the client's full energy can be used for achieving homeostasis or balance.

Question: Does my belief in Reiki (or my skepticism) create a placebo affect that does the "healing"?

Answer: One of the best ways to convince a skeptic of this type of healing is to give a brief session and let him or her judge for him/herself. Belief has little to do with the success or failure of a treatment, however, the client must be willing to accept the energy that is provided; practitioners only provide energy to those wishing to receive it.

Reiki Class Questions

Question: Can anyone learn Reiki, or just people who are "psychic" or "gifted"?

Answer: Anyone willing to receive the energy and to practice can learn Reiki.

Question: What causes the Reiki energy to become activated in a new practitioner?

Answer: The initiation or attunement given by the Reiki Master (also known as the teacher), a customized Reiki Session devoted to raising the frequency of the chakra or energy system, causes the energy to flow in the new practitioner. In addition to these attunements, the Reiki Master teaches the hand positions (in level one), the symbols (in level two), as well as other topics designed to assist in connecting with the client and assisting him or her in achieving wellness.

Question: What are the different types of Reiki taught by the Reiki Center of Greater Washington? Which one is the most effective?

Answer: Our Reiki Center teaches the Usui System of Natural Healing, the original Western school passed down from Mikao Usui to his descendents and the west via Chujiro Hayashi and Hawayo Takata.

We also teach the Karuna Reiki (R) method, developed by William Rand of the International Center of Reiki Training in Southfield, Michigan and Sekhem-Seichim-Reiki, techniques developed by Patrick Zeigler that connects Reiki energies with the energies of the Great Pyramid in Egypt.

We also offer three Japanese modalities of Reiki: Usui Reiki Ryoho, the original style developed by Mikao Usui; Gendai Reiki, a modern alternative developed by Hiroshi Doi; and Komyo Reiki, another modern modality that was developed by Hyakuten Innamoto from the lineage of Chujiro Hayashi.

The Usui system works well for physical and emotional healing and distant healing. The Karuna Reiki (R) system works on a cellular level to break up old patterns and to assist in releasing long-held conflicts and inbalances. Sekhem-Seichim-Reiki (SSR) may be used to clear body memories and past life issues or to do a type of work we call Reiki Regression (TM). The various systems may be used together or separately and are both effective in different ways.
