Q & A’s About Reiki
How Does Reiki Work?
The spiritually guided life force energy comes through the Reiki practitioner’s hands and into the body of the client. The energy goes exactly where it’s needed. This is similar to many spiritual traditions, which employ “laying on of hands”, although Reiki is not associated with any religion.
What is a Reiki session Like?
A Reiki session feels like a wonderful, warm radiance that flows through and around the client. The client lays on a massage table fully clothed for in-person sessions. A standard session involves placing the hands over the head, torso, knees, and feet. Clients relax, as preferred, in the comfort of their own home for distance sessions. Sessions are either 60 or 90 minutes in length.

How does distance Reiki work?
, Reiki, like prayer, works at a distance very well. Victoria will work with you similarly to an in person Reiki session. Your scheduled appointment is your time to relax (as if we were meeting in person). Victoria will connect with you energetically from a distance and through using Byosen Scanning, determine where you body needs Reiki. After giving Reiki for an hour or longer, depending on the scheduled session length, Victoria will call or meet you on Zoom to see what you felt and share what she found and where she treated. The fee for distant Reiki is the same as for in person Reiki.

Where can I find research information about Reiki?
William Rand created the Center for Reiki Research – www.centerforreikiresearch.org. As of 2017, there are 68 articles published on Reiki research. Research with Reiki has shown it to have promising results with acute and chronic pain, stress, depression, anxiety, relaxation, and practitioner (usually nurses) well-being. Additionally, for patients undergoing chemotherapy, pain has been reduced and well-being has increased. A study with knee replacement showed significant pain reduction, reduced need for pain medication, and a reduced length of hospital stay. Another study showed that Reiki was as good as cognitive behavioral therapy to reduce depression in adolescents. There are currently 27 peer-reviewed research articles published on Reiki in the last 5 years.
