How long does it take for Reiki to work? It does really depend on the person and the situation, of course, but many people feel calmer and more centred right away after a Reiki session. A willingness to change is also a big factor as that helps to mobilize an energy to help clear out the old and welcome the new.
Some people feel changes right away; sometimes, it can take a few sessions. Each session creates a momentum behind it that really helps to build on the energy shifts of the one before.
Usually, I recommend getting two or three sessions about a week apart if you’re dealing with something acute that is bothering you a lot. Then, as things calm, you can space them out every month or two just to keep everything flowing and open. By the end of three sessions, you’ll have a good idea of how Reiki works for you and where it fits into your self-care plan.
