What Does a Reiki or Crystal Singing Bowl Session Consist of?
What does a Reiki or Crystal Singing Bowl session consist of?
A complete Reiki or sound session is offered to a fully clothed recipient who is lying on a treatment table or sitting comfortably supported in a chair.
Most commonly, Reiki is offered through light, non-invasive touch with the practitioner’s hands placed and held on a series of locations on the head and front and back of the torso. The placement of the hands should never be intrusive or inappropriate, nor should there be any pressure.
Additional placements on the limbs can be done as needed (for example, if there is an injury or surgical scar), and some practitioners routinely do so. The Reiki practitioner can hold her hands just off the body if needed (for example, in the presence of an open wound or burn), and some practitioners always offer Reiki in this way.
During a “sound” session, the practitioner can sit on the floor and play the bowls, or if using a “hand held” bowl, stand next to the recipient and move the bowl around the body.
However the practitioner uses the bowls, the sound is helping to bring balance to the physical, emotional & mental bodies. Some people say they can feel the sounds of the singing bowls for as long one week.
What might I experience?
The experience of Reiki or sound varies from person to person. However, feeling of deep relaxation are usually felt by all. During a Reiki session, people often experience heat in the practitioner’s hands, but sometimes the practitioner’s hands feel refreshingly cool. Other common experiences are subtle pulsations where the practitioner’s hands are placed or cascading waves of pulsations throughout the body.
People often comment how comforting they find the experience of Reiki and sound to be. Some people fall into a deep sleep or meditative state. Sometimes the experience is dramatic, while for other people, the first session may be uneventful, although they feel somehow better afterward.
The most common experience is an immediate release of stress and a feeling of deep relaxation. Reiki and sound is cumulative and even people who don’t notice much the first time usually have progressively deeper experiences if they continue. One may notice other changes that continue to unfold as the day goes on: perhaps a sense of being more centered and see reactive and sleeping deeply that night.
