Frequently Asked Questions


What should I expect from a Reiki or Crystal healing session?

Both are non-invasive treatments that involve the practitioner gently placing either their hands or crystals on or slightly over the body, in a predetermined sequence.


What does a Reiki or Crystal healing session feel like?

Everyone responds differently to healing according to his or her state of well being. However, clients often report feeling sensations such as heat or tingling and for some the experience elicits an emotional response. Others report seeing colours or images and sometimes people simply fall asleep! Overall, most people who experience Reiki and Crystal healing feel a sense of calm and relaxation.


What should I expect from an EFT healing session?

An EFT session is more interactive than Reiki or Crystal healing and involves either clients tapping on themselves or, with permission of course, the practitioner gently tapping on them. This tapping focuses on negative memories to release the emotional impact of associated thoughts so that the memory no longer triggers them.


What will an EFT session feel like?

An EFT session can feel different for each individual. Some clients are surprised to discover revelations about themselves and therefore feel freer and more positive after the session. Most clients report feeling a sense of inner calm and peace and therefore feel relaxed and a sense of relief. Others feel energised, but it’s also possible to feel fatigued as a result of removing an energy blockage within their body.


How long does a session last?

Each healing session lasts between one hour to one hour and thirty minutes, including a consultation and a post-session review with the opportunity for feedback and time for Q&A.


How long does it take for healing to work? How soon will I feel the benefits?

Healing can be immediate but for others it can take a little longer as it all depends on the client’s underlying conditions and issues.


I’m worried about side effects. Are there any?

There are no harmful side effects but you may experience some that feel unpleasant. This is normal however, as energy healing prompts the body to release blockages and harmful energy. Clients may feel tired up to 48 hours after a session, can feel like they are coming down with a cold, like they have a headache coming on or they may notice they they are more emotional than usual. This is perfectly normal  and are signs the healing process is working.


Is there anything I should do after a healing session?

Your body works hard whilst releasing toxins so it’s a good idea to support the healing process by drinking lots of water and getting plenty of rest after a session.


How many sessions do I need?

This is determined by the client’s overall health and wellbeing and how chronic and long-term the concern is. As healing is a process it may take several sessions, however you should feel free to space your sessions over time in a way that feels right for you.


Which therapies have a long distance option?

Reiki and EFT can be experience over long distance as they are more convenient for the client in terms of time and location, however BodyZen feel Reiki to be much more powerful at a distance as there are no distractions.


How does long distance healing work?

In terms of EFT, sessions are carried out using video technology such as Zoom, Skype or WhatsApp. For Reiki, the practitioner connects energetically to the client using their name, location, and a photograph, at an agreed date and time. This may sound a little far-fetched but it’s the same concept as calling someone from your mobile phone anywhere in the world.
