To help put you at ease for a most relaxing, rejuvenating experience.
When you come to HTM for your first Reiki treatment, please arrive five to ten minutes early to fill out a brief medical history questionnaire. This will inform Lily of your history while saving valuable treatment time.
Lily will greet you in the client waiting room and take you to the treatment room. There, she will go over your medical history and what you want Reiki to help you with. Reiki is done as a partnership, with Lily channeling the energy to where you and your body most want it to flow.
The treatment room is warm, with soothing music. There is a padded table especially created for massage and Reiki. She will provide you with a face cradle which can be adjusted to fit you, and if necessary, bolsters for support and a heating pad to relax the muscles.
In a one-hour Reiki treatment, you lie down fully clothed on a massage table, removing only glasses and shoes. Lily places her hands gently on your body in specific positions on the front and back of the torso, around the head, and on the knees and feet. Her hands are usually kept still for 2 to 5 minutes before moving to the next position.
You will feel a light tingling or warmth accompanied by a deep sense of relaxation. This is an indication that the Reiki energy is flowing. The simultaneous calming of the mind and nervous system brings about greater inner spaciousness and peace.
Reiki can also be given in any other position that is comfortable for you, such as lying on your side, or sitting in a chair or wheelchair.
