An initial consultation is the first of stage of a Reiki process and generally includes a discussion of the reasons as to why the client is seeking Reiki treatments and what he is hoping to obtain from the experience.
There are no limits to the possibilities offered by Reiki. As demonstrated by Usui Sensei, Hayashi Sensei (one of the twenty Shihan initiated by Mikao Usui) and Takata Sensei, Reiki is something that is meant to be developed.
This healing process can sometimes cause uncomfortable symptoms that are actually part of the recovery process. This is sometimes called a ‘healing crisis’ by some, but is actually a normal part of the healing process as we enter a more deeply healed state.
