How Does Distant Reiki Work?

Most people are very skeptical of a distant Reiki session and I completely understand why. I was also very skeptical until I experienced it for myself and I was totally blown away. How can someone in another room, another city or even another country experience healing from a Reiki therapist in a different place? But then again how can they not?

Reiki is natural healing energy that works on every level, not just the physical level and this is where we have trouble understanding how a Reiki distance session works.

Within the framework of our physical world, everything has to be done in person. If you need a haircut, a massage, dental work, manicure or blood test, it cannot be done by distance. It has to be done in person. There has to be a physical connection made with your body and that is where Reiki is different.

Distant Reiki

Reiki is non-invasive and is used holistically to restore balance in mind, body and spirit while promoting the body's regenerative self-healing ability. Its healing energy connects us on an energetic and spiritual level where the healing work is conducted. To understand this, we must first realize that we are more than our physical bodies. 

Our thoughts, emotions, feelings, ideas, perspectives and moral beliefs all exist within us but they are not part of our physical bodies. They are energies that can affect our physical bodies but they are not physical elements.

Our soul or our spirit also forms part of who we are and it is definitely not a physical element. Reiki energy connects on our spiritual and energetic levels. Distant Reiki sessions work because energy is not limited by distance. Distance is a physical limitation only. 

"We are not a body with a soul, but a soul with a body."

-- Wayne Dyer


We accept other energy frequencies that we cannot see, such as electricity, radios, cell phones and wi-fi. Initially, these frequencies were thought to be too unbelievable to be true, but now they are accepted as normal functioning services. In order for them to work, they have to be tuned in and Distant Reiki works the same way.

The Reiki practitioner acts as a conduit and tunes the healing energy to the person it is being sent to and then it flows through the energy currents that exist naturally. Distance is not an obstacle for Reiki in the same way that it isn't for cell phones or the internet. 

A few years ago I had the pleasure of being interviewed on podcast by Aja of Flaunt Performance, a runner who lives in the Chicago area.  Prior to the podcast I performed (from England) a distant Reiki session with Aja. Listen in to find out what Aja experienced during our Reiki session.
 

In-Person Reiki Sessions

During a Reiki in-person session, the therapist does not need to physically touch the body. The healing session can be performed with the hands just above the body and it is just as effective as a hands-on treatment or a Reiki distance session.

In the UK in 2010, the National Occupation Standard, developed by Skills for Health acknowledged the following three methods of practicing Reiki:

  1. hands on the body
  2. hands near the body
  3. from a distance

This recognition is very significant for Reiki Therapists. Reiki is now recognized as an occupation that can be performed by distance away from the client. Maybe some day this concept will be considered as normal as using Skype on your cell phone to see and speak to a friend in another country!

Receiving Reiki in person can be a wonderful experience and there are significant case studies and scientific studies to attest to their benefits. However, in some cases physically attending a session can create barriers to optimal healing, such as when the following are considerations:

  • Stress of travelling
  • Time stress and rushing to an appointment
  • Stress of meeting someone new
  • Distracted by the physical presence of another person
  • Not as comfortable as being at home in a familiar environment
  • More expensive than a distance session

In these situations Distant Reiki provides a wonderful, simple and effective alternative solution.

Benefits of Distant Reiki

Once clients begin having Reiki by distance, they often prefer it because it is so convenient and they receive a follow-up report. 

Some of the benefits of receiving Reiki by distance:

  • You don't have to "get ready" to go out.
  • You don't have to leave your house.
  • You don't have to work around someone else's schedule.
  • You don't have to talk to anyone.
  • You can receive a written record of your healing session.
  • Usually cheaper than an in-person visit.

"Thank you so much Jackie for this amazing experience of Reiki.

It was a real treat to finally allow myself permission to take some time out for 'me' and to put myself in an environment where I could simply 'stop' from my busy world - and I'm so glad that I did!

I felt such relaxation; my head became empty from mindless chatter and my body experienced a feeling of such weightlessness. I felt inner calm, peace and joy all at the same time, whereby all levels of my being were in pure equilibrium and vibrating in harmony.

Since my treatment, I have felt somewhat more in control. When I'm feeling a little out of sync, I pause for a second and tap into that wonderful feeling I encountered when having my Reiki treatment with you and it helps me to regain my natural state of 'beingness' once again.

Jackie, what can I say?? - but, I will be back!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!"

--  Jeni R. Islington, UK


The only way for you to truly know if a Reiki Distance Session really works is to try one for yourself. However, when you do, don't be surprised if it becomes your preferred method of healing. 

Distant Reiki sessions last 30 minutes and you can be scheduled at a mutually convenient time. During the session, it is best if you are lying down in a quiet place where you won't be disturbed. Please note that no telecommunication connection is required for Reiki to be sent or received. It is simply transmitted using the practitioner's intention to send it and the client's intention to receive it.
