Reiki Healing in Madison, WI

As a Reiki Master in Madison, WI, Kelly Noel Zeva is formally trained to provide both Reiki healing sessions and Holy Fire III Reiki classes. Reiki is an ancient energetic healing modality that was rediscovered by Dr. Usui in the early 1900s and first brought to the United States in the 1930s by Mrs. Hawayo Takata. Since the early 2000’s, Reiki has grown in popularity because it aids relaxation and promotes stress-relief. Within the greater Madison, WI area, Reiki Masters provide healing sessions that complement the powerful work of allopathic medicine.

During a session, the Reiki Master or practitioner will place their hands on or slightly above the client. The healer serves as a channel for high-vibration healing life force energy. Because the client’s subconscious mind directs the healing process, the Reiki practitioner is only a facilitator for the client’s own healing. While people often react differently to the energy during a session (some may experience emotional tension to release, others may feel completely relaxed and fall asleep), after a session most people report feeling more relaxed and at peace.

How to Prepare

Prior to your first Reiki session, you will need to fill out a client intake form and waiver. The intake form helps the practitioner best customize the session according to your needs and preferences as Reiki sessions can also include aromatherapy, crystal healing, and chanting/toning. You can either do this immediately before your session at our office or at your own convenience by downloading the form from our site. Please keep in mind that this form takes 5-10 minutes to fill out, so if you plan to complete it in-person, your first session will be slightly shorter.

We also recommend you keep the following things in mind:

  • Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing. During a Reiki session, you will remain fully clothed, but you will also be lying on a massage table. Wear comfortable, non-restrictive clothing such as a T-shirt or sweater and athletic shorts, sweatpants, or leggings so that you can relax during your session. Because energy will be moving, people sometimes get cold, even with blankets. For this reason, we also suggest that you bring socks and a sweater.
  • Hydrate after your session. Much like a therapeutic massage, Reiki releases toxins from the body. As such, it is important to drink plenty of water after your Reiki session to flush those toxins out of your body.
  • Have an open mind. Because Reiki is intimately connected with your own free will, only the things that you are open to healing will be healed. For this reason, it’s important that, as much as possible, you can go into your Reiki session with an open mind and heart. If you have never had a Reiki session before, be sure to let your practitioner know so that they can guide you through the process and answer any lingering questions you may have.
  • Be gentle with yourself. Just as therapeutic massage can make you feel achy, you may experience a release on a physical, emotional, psychological, or spiritual level after a Reiki session. Give yourself the space and time you need to process and integrate the experience. Taking Epsom salt baths to release toxins or chamomile tea baths to nurture your body can help immensely.
