I have worked with adults from ages 20 and up who have experienced Reiki/energy work. For over thirteen years now, I work as a High School Counselor assisting teens ages 14 through 18 in the education field. My husband and I have four adopted cats who enjoy receiving reiki. I also work with client's pet animals who enjoy receiving the healing energy of reiki.
I have been a part of an organization called Toivo which is a non profit community based organization offering low/free cost programs such as yoga, tai-chi, group counseling, wellness events to the community. I was a part of a Karuna CT conference in April 2019 where I was able to promote my business at a healing arts space at a two day conference and offer reiki to conference attendees. I’ve also been at the CT legistlative office building offering reiki to individuals and at other conferences, such as the CT Dental Association Conference.
Some questions to ask would be: Why does a customer want to experience reiki/energy work, what is the customer looking to get out of energy work. In addition, it is important to ask a practitioner about their background, experience, question the feedback they receive from clients and ask them to share and discuss the positive effects of energy work, counseling, etc.
