How Does Distance Reiki Work?

The Principle of Distance Reiki

Distance Reiki is a technique used to send Reiki energy (also known as spiritual energy, qi or prana) to a person who isn't in the same room. Reiki can be administered without the need for physical proximity because it works under the principle that where your attention goes, energy flows and that time and space are illusionary.

During your distance Reiki session, I call upon the support of the Reiki symbol and mantra, Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen, also known as the distance Reiki symbol. This symbol helps me to focus my attention on sending you Reiki energy from a distance. 

How It Works

A distance Reiki session is typically 20 minutes long but it continues for longer periods if you'd prefer. After you've made a booking, I will schedule a convenient time and date for the session with you.

We can perform the session via skype or telephone if you would like and I can guide you through the process. 

In advance of the session taking place, you would be asked to email a photo of yourself to, along with your name, age, location and any intention for what you'd like the session to support (e.g. a physical issue, emotional issue, goal, or challenge).

Having these details will help me to connect with you.

What to Expect During Your Distance Reiki Treatment:

When people receive Reiki energy they can feel a number of different physical sensations. You may notice warmth or coldness, tingling, or a sense of deep relaxation. You may also notice a decrease in physical pain during the session.

Some people feel no physical Reiki sensations and some often fall asleep. If this happens to you, don't worry, everyone interprets energy in their own way and you'll still receive all the benefits of the Reiki treatment. 

Potential benefits of your distance Reiki treatment: 

  • Helps you to ground yourself.
  • Eases anxiety and depression.
  • Improves sleep.
  • Balances mood and emotions.
  • Enhances your body’s ability to self-heal.
  • Relieves pain.

How to Prepare for Your Distance Reiki Session

Although you can continue to carry out your daily activities, Reiki can induce a deep state of relaxation so you may want to take advantage of this by creating a chilled out environment for yourself. You could try:

  • Dimming the lights and lighting a candle.
  • Lighting your favorite incense.
  • Affirming the Reiki principles beforehand, which can be found here, (or offer your own prayer).  
  • Setting your intention to heal yourself.
  • Writing about what you would like to receive from your session beforehand and what you notice after.
