I believe a great environment is conducive to a great Reiki treatment. I’d like to share a few things I do, and if you have any ideas to add, I’d love to hear them!
So, when a human or animal is coming for a Reiki treatment here’s what I usually do…
- I have to be in the right frame of mind, so a self-treatment is first and most important!
- I clear all the rooms that my client will be visiting. I use Reiki symbols for this.
- I create low light in the treatment room. It is not really dark to be uncomfortable, but definitely no bright lights.
- I have a selection of music chosen specifically to be soothing and quietly turn it on in the background.
- Smell! I have a diffuser for essential oils and my favorite oils to use is a mixture of lavender and lemon. Twice as much lavender as lemon.
- I check the entry way where the client will be coming in the door, and make sure it’s up to snuff as clean, inviting, and a happy place to enter.
- No distractions! I make sure all phones, computers, etc. are off. And since I have pets in my home, the dogs are happily chewing on their bones in another room, and the cats are comfy and cozy in their beds, also in another room.
- Treatment table. The massage table is comfy, freshly laundered, and there are extra pillows and blankets if needed. I usually do animal Reiki treatments on the floor, on a comfy blanket or whatever is comfortable for the animal.
- Forms. I have the client consent form and client profile chart ready for their arrival.
- And last but not least, a smile on my face, and a smile in my heart. 🙂
