Many clients have asked me this question, and it’s a good one.
Receiving Reiki sessions can be wonderful and a great source of support and guidance. (I receive sessions regularly from my mentors and long-time teachers.) It can be invaluable to have the objective support of an experienced Reiki practitioner. Also, the more you work with Reiki energy, the more powerful your ability, so receiving Reiki from a practitioner with years of experience and a strong meditation and spiritual practice will amplify its effects.
If you have an interest in going deeper, learning Reiki can become an empowering daily self-care practice. Learning Reiki allows you to take your healing into your own hands (literally) and go deeper with a daily mindfulness practice.
