Your clients need your ongoing support on the road to recovery. Create a kit for your new clients to help them move towards health and to compliment your work with them during their sessions.
It is disheartening when clients enjoy great benefits from your Reiki but then go right back to doing what put them in poor health in the first place. Short of having them move in with you so you can monitor their progress (not gonna happen…), it could be prudent to give them options and ‘homework’ so they can work with you towards better health.
Depending on your client’s needs and goals, I think it best to tailor your kit on a client-by-client basis, and depending on which type of Reiki you use.
These days, it is also easier to email your kit to your client rather than give them paper.
Please remember to treat your client’s email addresses with the utmost respect. Never share it, include them in a ‘round robin’ so others can see their email address, never add them to a mailing list without their permission and respect the digital privacy laws of your country.
All the kit ingredients below are emailable.
Your kit could include:
- A ‘progressive relaxation guided session’ to teach them to tune into deep relaxation so the reiki can flow through them more easily
- A suggested reading list and, if appropriate, the Reiki Rays Library
- Chakra chart
- A beginner’s short meditation concentrating on quieting the mind
- Grounding advice
- After-care advice digital leaflet

Perhaps you have had clients that really struggle to relax. To some, lying still when it is not bedtime is completely alien to them. Their mind becomes agitated and their body becomes restless.
Educating your client to relax could be one of the most beneficial gifts you can give them as the blessing will spill into every area of their life.
Learning to relax properly for the first time, involves feeling tension and a corresponding relaxation in the major muscle groups of the body. The recorded session below, is done lying down on a comfortable surface and can be practised daily until a relaxation response can happen on mental command alone. Try it for yourself before sharing it with clients so you can feel the benefits.
Create A Suggested Reading List
Clients experiencing Reiki for the first time may have many questions about its origins, effectiveness and spiritual connectedness.
It might be useful to add the books that led you to Reiki or books of a more spiritual nature. If your client is experiencing a particular crisis such as cancer, grief, mental health issues or addiction, there are many excellent self-help books that specifically support…
