Reiki Healing Review: My Unforgettable Encounter

I share this Reiki healing review with respect and gratefulness to the client who wrote me about her “Unforgettable Encounter” to share here on

I’ve always been a person who craves new experiences, especially when it comes to holistic and alternative therapies.
So, when I first heard about Reiki, it piqued my curiosity.

After delving into a multitude of Reiki healing reviews and stories from different walks of life, I decided to give it a try.
The following is a compilation of my experiences and observations, along with those of a few others who have shared their journey with me.

My first encounter with Reiki was through an article on a wellness website.
It spoke about how this ancient Japanese healing practice could help heal physical, emotional, and spiritual wounds.

The theory behind Reiki, which roughly translates to “spiritually guided life force energy”, is that a Reiki teacher transfers this energy to you, replenishing and restoring your mind, body, and spirit.
(Lost Yogi comment: We do not transfer our energy, we are just a channel for Universal Healing Energy)

As a person with a logical bent of mind, I found this concept a little hard to accept.
The idea of being healed over a phone call or a remote session seemed too far-fetched.

Nevertheless, I didn’t dismiss it outright.
The fact that Reiki is currently used in some hospitals and for patients needing support with conditions like cancer or drug and alcohol rehabilitation, gave me hope.

The First Reiki Session

Eventually, curiosity won over skepticism, and I booked my first Reiki session.
The Reiki practitioner’s room was warm and comfortable, filled with soothing natural elements like plants.

The session began with a conversation, more of a heart-to-heart chat than a clinical assessment.
The practitioner’s empathetic listening felt therapeutic in itself.

The Session Experience

Then came the main part of the Reiki session.
I lay on a bodywork table while the practitioner guided me through some cleansing breathing exercises.

Initially, I felt a little awkward, but as I concentrated on my breathing, I started feeling a tingling sensation spreading across my body.

The Energy Shift

Next, the practitioner started the actual Reiki healing.
With her hands hovering over my body, I felt a current of energy flowing into me.

It was a gentle stream of what felt like electricity, revitalizing a part of me I didn’t even know needed awakening.
The energy coursed through my body, filling me up and inducing a sense of deep relaxation.

After the session, I found myself in a state of calm I hadn’t experienced in a long time.
It wasn’t caffeine-induced alertness but rather a peaceful, easy energy.

As if a burden had been lifted off my shoulders.
