I add in Reiki to most sessions unless requested not to. I use it in a multitude of ways; a few are to create a perfect and much needed quiet integration point, allowing the client a moment to process between deeper periods of work; to add an overall sense of deeper peace and relaxation to a session, and to open up stubborn meridian points and soften muscle in a peaceful way prior to deeper work. While I can do a massage without it, I much prefer to use it since it provides so much benefit to the client and has no contraindications. I will also use Thai bodywork stretches and energy work using moves adapted for the massage table as the stretches are so beneficial, relaxing, and much needed in our society as many clients do not stretch enough during work hours.
