What you need to know before an appointment:
It’s a good idea to come a few minutes early, to make sure you find parking and to give yourself time to drink water, use the restroom, fill out the paperwork, and settle in. You should wear comfortable clothes, and shoes you can take off. We will offer you water, but if you would prefer another type of drink (bubbling water, or juice), you should bring it yourself. If you are often hungry or find you need to ground with food after a healing or other magical work, you may want to bring a small snack. If you have any questions about your upcoming appointment, please reach out via email!
What you can expect during your appointment:
At the beginning of your appointment, we will ask you to fill out a short medical questionnaire and sign a consent form, and you will be advised that your session and any related discussion will be kept confidential by the practitioner(s).
Our treatment sessions are usually given in person while you are either lying on a massage table or seated comfortably in a chair. We do a combination of hands-on and hands-hovering work, adjusted to your touch preferences (direct touch contact can be helpful, but is never necessary). It is also possible for us to give treatments to clients who are not in the same room as us – this is called Distance Healing, and is usually navigated over Skype or Google Hangouts.
While in person sessions may be as short as 5 or 10 minutes, most sessions are 30 to 60 minutes in length. We begin by “scanning” your energy system, to look for problem areas or energy blockages so we know where to focus our efforts. Most of the time, these can be flushed out by the flow of reiki, but sometimes blockages are like tumors that need to be removed in order to restore proper energy flow – this is called “psychic surgery”.
As we work, we are assisted by our guides, and by your guides, who may be such various spirits as the your higher self, guardian angels, ascended masters, animal guides, and deities. Please let us know who your guides are, if you have any, at the beginning of the session so we can be sure to call on the correct ones. This helps us to make sure we are doing the highest good for our clients.
We may place crystals around you or ask you to hold them while we work. We will try to tell you what it is and what we are using it for as we place them, but if we are moving quickly and forget to explain one, please feel free to ask. We may also suggest you purchase a certain type of crystal from another shop to continue your healing progress, as we do not sell polished stones, ourselves.
During the session, we may stop at various times to ask about a perceived blockage, to check your comfort level, or to relay a message from a guiding spirit. You may also make requests or ask questions of the practitioner at any time.
The final stage of the session is smoothing back out the energy bodies, so that everything comes back into alignment and the healing can continue organically over the next few days. You may find that you are more tired than you expect for a day or two after an intense healing session, such as one involving lots of psychic surgery, or soul retrieval.
