What do I feel? (What do you feel?)

I am trying to teach my cat to give me reiki…

*

One of the common questions that I get after I give a reiki treatment to a client is: ‘What did you feel?’

The answer is that it’s different for every person, and it’s also different each time, even if it’s the same person.

I follow my intuition for where to place my hands (and sometimes it feels like more than intuition; my hands are really drawn to a position or a body part).

Often it feels warm, but there are so many variations of warm: a gentle heat, a light warmth, a more intense hot sensation. Sometimes I’ll feel a sensation that’s tingly and a little electric.

Other times I might feel something larger, not just in my hands, but a general feeling of peace or relaxation.

But what does it all mean?

While I can guess that where my hands are drawn to is where energy needs to flow to or be released, I don’t do any more analysis or interpreting than that. The body is mysterious. Who knows if a bit of energy at your knee is actually a way to help you feel more focused at work! Or if your broken heart will feel better not by having my hands near your physical heart but at your shoulders or the top of your head.

What’s really important is not how I feel but how you feel, both at the time of the treatment and as the effects unfold afterwards, the same day, that evening, the next day and into the next week. If you feel positive or energised, or if you feel that the treatment addressed the reason you came: that’s the important thing.

Clients come from all over Sydney to see me, and I’ve also had clients who are visiting Sydney from Melbourne, Brisbane and the Gold Coast come and see me while they’re here for business, conferences or meeting families. While it’s easiest to get to me from the CBD, Darlinghurst, Paddington, Kings Cross, Redfern and Potts Point, I’m pretty easy to get to from anywhere in Sydney.

Latest reviews of Reiki Surry Hills

I feel pretty happy when I get good feedback, both for my clients, to know that reiki was useful, and for me, to know I could help out!

I’ve been a bit lax in terms of blogging so far in 2017! But then again, it’s not bad to be both relaxed… and to not be too hard on oneself!

I’ve had some great feedback from clients this year so far.

Here is some of the feedback that I’ve received recently:

‘I loved it. For two days after my treatment, I felt I was on a natural high. I had the ability to block out negative thoughts and vibes from others. My overall being was at peace.’

‘I honestly still feel the best I have felt in years, I’m lost for words at just how good that whole experience was.’

‘I felt fantastic… so calm. Something I haven’t felt in a very long time’

‘The experience was amazing… I feel more connected with myself.’

‘In terms of my confidence and negative thoughts I did feel like something left me that day (only way I can describe it) that I let go’

‘I am coming from dealing with long-term issues in my life. It was hard all those years to take a decision and this treatment is helping me to focus more in what it is more important to decide..’

I also had these two amazing reviews left on my Facebook page:

‘Amazing experience and so happy that I received relief immediately after the treatment as I was suffering from stress related painful migraines. I feel so relaxed, happy and completely zen, balanced and recharged.’

‘When I woke up the day after my reiki session with Andy, I felt like all my negative thoughts and emotions were millions of miles away and I was able to finally let things go. It would be an understatement to say it was amazing… It was absolutely wonderful…’

As you can tell, it’s an interesting mix of feedback. Some of it is about just feeling more relaxed, some about letting go of negativity, some of it about achieving more clarity.

In the interest of fairness, I also heard from a few clients who felt more anxious, emotional or physically drained the next day, but then it smoothed out the day after… and another client who felt ‘the same, not much difference’.

It’s also true that those who don’t find their treatment as effective may be less likely to give me feedback (although some people could have fantastic results and also not give feedback). But in general, I’m happy to hear great results from many clients!

If you recognise your words above, thanks for them and I hope you don’t mind that I’ve reposted the reviews without names! Let me know if you don’t want it here, or if you’d like to put your name with the feedback. THANK YOU.

Online booking now available

The latest news from Reiki Surry Hills is that I’ve set up online booking through Bookwell. Bookwell is working with the health, wellness and beauty sector to make it easier for clients in Sydney to book appointments.

While you can visit their page directly to book a haircut, manicure or reiki appointment, they’ve also facilitated me to allow online bookings through my contact page here, though I’ve also snuck a ‘Book Online’ button onto my front page too.

I invite you to check it out! A lovely photographer came by and took some great shots of the space and reiki room, and it’s an easy option for some. Of course, if you prefer to chat about when you can come, and some more personal contact, it’s just as easy for you to call, SMS or email, but this gives you another way to come and enjoy the wellness of reiki.
