Clients Responsibility and Liability Release - Reiki / RAAH / Healing Session
What is Reiki?
Reiki and Holy Fire® Reiki are forms of complementary health care practices, which have been found to enhance the body's ability to heal itself.
What Reiki is not.
Your practitioner is not a licensed physician, and Reiki does not require licensing by the state. They are meant to be a complement to “healing arts services licensed by the state”; i.e., they are a complement to traditional Western medicine provided by doctors, nurses, and other licensed medical professionals.
Theory of Treatment
Stress, trauma and illness restrict the natural flow of qi (chi) or “life force energy” through the body. By restoring the flow of life force energy through the body, Reiki rejuvenates the body’s ability to relax and, therefore, supports the body’s ability to heal itself.
Although one session may be adequate, long-term imbalances in the body sometimes require multiple treatments in order to allow the body to reach the level of relaxation necessary to bring the system back into balance. Improvement often requires commitment on the client’s part (e.g., willingness to make lifestyle changes) in order to fully benefit from Reiki treatment(s).
Nature of the Services Provided
During an in-person Reiki session, the client is asked to sit or lie down comfortably. They remain fully clothed during the treatment session. The majority of the session will involve the practitioner holding their hands about 2-3 inches above the client’s body. If guided to do so, the practitioner will ask permission to place their hands on your body but only in a manner acceptable to you and within the legal limits of their practice as a Reiki Practitioner. PLEASE NOTE: Remote Sessions will not require to sit or lie down unless the client so desires in their own space and time.
Once the session begins, the practitioner allows the life force energy to flow through their hands, which may be experienced by the client as heat, coolness, vibrating, tingling, a light pressure, a slight pulling sensation, or nothing at all. The Practitioner may also use other hands-off techniques, such as sweeping the body of unneeded energy or using vocal tones to break up energy blocks. The practitioner is simply a conduit or channel of the life force energy. It is believed that the energy is guided by God/Source/Spirit for the physical, mental, emotional, and/or spiritual well-being of the client. Therefore, a specific outcome cannot be guaranteed by the Reiki.
A detailed Body Scan will be performed on the client, where Rhiannon will connect with the client's Higher Self to guide the healing. As recommended and allowed by the Higher Self, Rhiannon may balance energies, auric fields, and chakras as well as cleanse/cut/transmute negative cords, negative implants, hooks, and portals.
