No. The Reiki energy passes easily through clothing.
Ideally you should wear loose, comfortable clothing that you can easily relax in.
No. Reiki is totally harmless. Your energy system will accept only as much energy as is beneficial for it.
The original Reiki system is called the Usui system because it was rediscovered and developed by Dr Usui. All other forms of Reiki have been developed in the West based on personal insights by various Reiki Masters. It is not important what the system is called. What matters is the integrity of the Reiki practitioner and the quality of energy they are able to make available to you.
It is best to follow your instincts and intuition when choosing a Reiki practitioner. Have a chat with the practitioner before you commit to having a treatment and make sure you feel comfortable with the practitioner. Healing is greatly enhanced if you can relax during treatment and if you trust the practitioner.
The number of treatments depends on the individual and varies from person to person. Some people get all the benefit they need from a single treatment wheras others will require a series of treatments.
One of the best uses of Reiki is as a preventative treatment. Regular monthly treatments can help to maintain good health and help you to stay relaxed.
Reiki and Spiritual Healing are similar insofar as they both entail a practitioner making energy available to the client and are both considered to be hands-on treatments. However, Reiki is not connected with any religion and is open to people of all faiths.
Sometimes it will help the healing process if the practitioner can lay his or her hands on the physical body but this not always necessary and much benefit can be gained from treating the person’s energy field, or aura. If you feel unsure about being touched it is best to tell the practitioner in advance so they know what sort of treatment you will be most comfortable with.
