Having no previous experience with Reiki, I decided to go in with an open mind and give it a try. For my first ever appointment, I visited therapist Orna O'Beirne at the Dublin Holistic Centre. To begin, Orna welcomed me into the appointment and invited me to take a seat and over a glass of water, we held a conversation to learn a little about each other. I shared with Orna why I was visiting the centre and that I had not experienced Reiki before. Orna explained to me that Reiki is a form of Energy Healing that works with gentle hands to restore balance and harmony in the body. As a result, Reiki helps relieve pain, aid better sleep, combat anxiety, aid with grieving and much more.
After a consultation, Orna had me lay on the plinth with my face to the ceiling and arms at my sides. The room was warm and dark with relaxing music playing in the background. I then closed my eyes and let Orna begin.
Interestingly, Orna discovered Reiki after studying counseling and psychotherapy which she believes complements each other as modalities. After checking with me if I was comfortable with her hands occasionally being placed on my body during the healing, she explained to me that if I was not, she could still heal without touching. From this point, I knew I was in good hands.
She began by putting her hands lightly on my stomach, moving slowly to different parts of my body including my head, legs, and feet. At my forehead, she made a diamond shape with her fingers causing me to suddenly feel a warm sensation travel through my neck and into my body. When Orna reached my feet, I could feel my entire body relax, at this point, I felt myself slowly falling asleep.
During the healing, there were also moments where Orna did not touch me at all. I could hear her walking around the room but I was in such a state of relaxation, I barely noticed. Orna later told me that she communicates with angelic energies so she can heal both through touch and the contrary.
After my appointment, I felt extremely relaxed and like I needed a nap! The following few nights, I slept better than I had in months and during the day, I felt much more positive.
If anyone is looking for a Reiki treatment, I will definitely recommend them to Orna. She makes you feel comfortable from the moment you step into the appointment to the moment you walk out. Plus, once you leave, the results last for many days after.
