Reiki is a traditional Japanese healing technique wherein the practitioner manipulates the flow of energy in a person’s body to improve their physical, mental and emotional health while also combating stress and tension. Reiki healing is often called "energy work." Learn more about reiki healing here. Clients may seek traditional Japanese or Western-style reiki to help with spiritual growth, improve physical health, improve mental clarity, release stress and tension, or manage pain. Most reiki practitioners offer sessions that last 45 minutes to 90 minutes or more. Several factors affect the cost of reiki healing.
A reiki practitioner’s location can affect the cost of services. Practitioners in certain areas of the country may charge higher rates for services based on local competition, cost of living and other factors. If the reiki healer travels to a client’s home or office to do the work, rates may also be higher to cover the healer’s time and transportation expenses.
Many reiki healers’ rates are based on the length of each session. The longer the session, the higher the cost to the client. While some healers only offer one length of time for their services, other healers offer tiered pricing based on session length. Here are some pricing examples:
Lotus Mind & Body Healing Therapies in Allen, Texas: $85 for one 60-minute session that includes sound therapy, aromatherapy and chakra balancing
Sonia M. Benson | Healer & Guide in Takoma Park, Maryland: $100 for one 45-minute session
- Silver Star Reiki in Chicago, Illinois: $45 for one 30-minute session and $85 for one 60-minute session
Some reiki healers offer discounted rates on individual sessions when a client buys a bulk amount of lessons upfront. With package deals, professionals provide services at a reduced rate and at the same time secure future business for themselves, which is financially beneficial to both the client and the professional. Sonia M. Benson | Healer & Guide charges $270 for three 45-minute energy healing sessions, which is a 10 percent discount on the cost of her $100 individual sessions.
Reiki healers with advanced training or extensive experience may charge higher rates than those without the same professional pedigree. For example, a licensed acupuncturist with an advanced degree who is also a trained reiki master may have higher rates than a person solely trained in reiki.
Many reiki practitioners offer distance healing either via telephone or Skype. Some practitioners offer these services at reduced rates, and some charge their standard rates. For example, Silver Star Reiki charges $125 for three distance reiki sessions versus the in-person trio package cost of $250.
Many reiki healers also offer reiki training and workshops to people who want to learn the technique. Costs for lessons may vary based on teacher experience and reputation, geographic location, and the intensity of the training. Here are pricing examples for trainings:
