It is recommended that the client be lightly dressed and not wear chains, bracelets or rings. During a Reiki session in person, the Reiki healer places his/her hands on or very close to the client’s body in a series of hand positions. Each position is maintained for 30 seconds to 12 minutes, depending on the healer’s intuition and level of Reiki training and the client’s problems. The whole treatment usually lasts between 7 and 90 minutes depending on the same criteria.

However, sometimes a person may experience some side effects that can last from a few minutes to 2-3 days. As the harmonious flow of Reiki energy is restored and the vibration of a person increases, the toxins that have been stored in the body will be released into the blood and will be filtered by the liver and kidneys and then removed from the body.
When the amount of toxins released into the blood is higher, the toxins cannot be eliminated in a short time and they will circulate through the body for a certain period of time, and all this can cause temporary headaches or abdominal pain or weakness.
If this happens, it is advisable to drink more water, eat lighter meals and rest more. The body is cleansed as part of the healing process, so this is a good sign.
