Can Reiki Be Done Virtually?
People often ask can Reiki be done virtually, and the answer is yes!
Many clients are surprised to find that their Distance Reiki sessions are even more powerful than in-person. It’s why I offer sessions exclusively online.
Founded in the 1920s by Master Usui, the traditional Reiki system highlights Distance Reiki as a cornerstone practice. This technique allows me as the practitioner to transmit Reiki without you needing to be in the same room or geographic location.
The transformational power of Reiki is the energy itself, not the room it happens in.

What Should I Expect from My Remote Reiki Session?
During a virtual Reiki session, I act as a channel for the Reiki (or Ki) to move through:
The Reiki energy clears and strengthens the meridians, chakras, and energy throughout your body according to what you need. I sense the energy in different places in the body similar to an in-person treatment.
While everyone experiences Distance Reiki differently, common responses include:
- A feeling of relaxation in the mind and body
- Physical sensations such as warmth or tingling
- An alleviation of physical symptoms
- Your mind calming down
- A stronger connection to your intuition
- You might feel quite alert and aware, or you might drift off
- A sense of peace and deep stillness
There’s no right or wrong way to experience Reiki, and it varies from person to person and from session to session.
What are the Potential Benefits of Reiki?
Online Reiki healing can be helpful for a wide range of physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual issues, as well as with relationship and career challenges.
Benefits of Distance Reiki:
- Eases symptoms of anxiety and depression
- Enhances your body’s ability to heal itself
- Relieves pain and physical discomfort
- Helps you ground and center yourself
- Improves sleep
- Balances mood and your emotions
- Calms your mind and offers clarity
How Can Distance Reiki Help Me?
Stress is attributed to 85% of all health challenges. Many clients find virtual Reiki effective for reducing stress surrounding a range of issues including, but not limited to:
- Confidence & self-esteem
- Relationship or family matters
- Fertility, pregnancy, & delivery
- Intuition & heart health
- Letting go of the past
- Sadness & grief
- Career stress or job changes
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
While everyone changes differently, 3 sessions is a good starting point to determine if Reiki is helpful with a particular issue. As with any physical, mental, or emotional challenge, chronic issues usually take longer than acute issues to resolve.
I’ll offer a personalized recommendation after your first remote Reiki session so we can devise a treatment plan together to best meet your needs.
Many clients book a monthly session as a powerful and gentle form of self-care.
How Much Does a Distance Reiki Healing Session Cost?
An hour Distance Reiki session is $225.
Your one-hour session begins with a consultation via Zoom where I’ll share personalized self-healing tips to empower you long after the session ends.
Settle in as I guide you through a progressive relaxation, balancing the chakras and bringing you to a state of deep peace and relaxation. Throughout, I may also share intuitive messages and visions that emerge.
What Should I Do To Prepare For My Distance Reiki Session?
At the beginning of the session, you’ll have a brief consultation with me about what you want the session to support. If it’s your first session, we’ll go over the Intake Form.
Sometimes I’ll offer recommendations or show you self-healing techniques you can use between sessions to prolong the effects of the work you do together.
After the verbal consultation, you can comfortably lie down. It’s not necessary for me to see you, so you can turn your camera off if you prefer. Alternately, you can do the entire session by phone if you live in the U.S., just let me know your preference in advance of your session.
Distance Reiki Perks: 5 Bonuses You Won't Get In-Person
The virtual Reiki session format enables me to integrate much more into your Reiki sessions in a way that I wasn’t able to in person.
Here are 5 ways Distance Reiki is more powerful than in-person:
- Deepened Energy Healing: Incorporating Tao Hands allows me to address your most challenging issues at their root cause.
- Global Reach: Location isn’t a barrier. Wherever you are in the world, you can receive Reiki.
- Bring Good Vibes Home: Online sessions uplift the positive energy of your living space.
- Pet-Frendly Participation: When your pets cozy up to you during a session, it’s a bonus for you both, doubling the energy healing.
- Mind Shift Mastery: Blending Hypnosis with Reiki is a synergistic option to increase mental clarity so you can access your inner wisdom (requires an initial Hypnosis session).
What Can I Do To Maximize The Effects Of My Virtual Reiki Session?
While it’s not necessary for your session, if you like you can create a healing space for yourself by:
- Meditating or offering a prayer beforehand
- Setting your intention to heal yourself
- Lighting a candle
- Playing relaxing music
- Journaling about what you want from the session in advance, or about what you notice after
At the end of the online Reiki healing, take a few minutes (longer if you like) to integrate everything from the session, taking a few deep breaths and sitting up slowly.
Bonus: take a nap if you can, we process so much when we sleep, so this can be quite powerful. Listen to your body and rest and move accordingly.
I also follow up with you after your session by email with recommendations of things to do and notice to help you prolong the positive effects of your remote Reiki sessions.
