What to do after a healing?
Please drink plenty of water for the next couple of days, to flush out toxins that your body will release as a result of the session. Water in-take should be increased to the standard 6-8 glasses per day. (With the exception of those whom have kidney disorders).
Continue to take all prescribed medication(s) from your doctor.
If you have diabetes something should be eaten immediately following the healing - a sweet or biscuit, to combat any change in sugar levels from the healing. Diabetes patients will be susceptible to this.
Most people find that they sleep solidly that night – as much as 8-12 hours after a Reiki session. Make sure you have an early night, and continue to drink lots of water. If possible, please avoid caffeine and alcohol for the next 2 days.
Following the Reiki session the body will enter into a cleansing response, flushing waste products from the tissues. During this time you may experience thirst, mild discomfort, headaches or tiredness. Alternatively you may well feel energized and “on top of the world”.
Please contact us if you have any severe/ ongoing effects after your session / or contact your health practitioner if you have symptoms that persist.
The Healing Process
While substances are ejected out of the tissues, they are dumped into the system making the body “temporarily” more toxic until they can be excreted. This is the body’s normal healing process.
This process is partly what produces the symptoms of a healing reaction. This effect is accentuated by the body’s process of tearing apart defective tissue, repairing damaged cells, destroying parasites or ineffective agents and otherwise producing debris from the reconstruction. Generally the more toxic his or her body is the stronger will be the healing reaction.
If you have never experienced a Reiki Healing session before, it is most likely that you will have mild healing reaction such as a thirst, tiredness after the treatment – sleeping 8-10 hours, or alternatively feeling on top of the world.
Here is a list of common healing reactions which can occur during / and after the session, and normally last for 24 hours:
urge for water, dry throat, need to swallow or cough
flatulence, rumbling tummy
heat rash from where hands have been placed on the body
mild discomfort, headache
wave of tears, release of emotions
feeling on top of the world - buzzing with energy
sleep 8-10 hours that night
little shaking of the hands if low blood pressure (this is why it is important to have a biscuit and cup of tea following the treatment if you have this)
sweating, diarrhea, old symptons as the body releases toxins
motion sickness, little nausea
