A Reiki treatment is very simple, non-intrusive and able to be adapted to suit individual client needs.
The client remains fully clothed at all times and lies on their back on a couch or Reiki table. Treatments can also be given to clients sitting on a chair.
The Reiki Practitioner places their hands in a series of non-intrusive positions, near the Chakras along the torso and head. The Western tradition of Reiki would also involve the client turning over and lying on their front to continue their treatment. Alternatively, the client may stay on their back with the treatment continuing down the legs and feet to allow for full relaxation and minimal disturbance.
Reiki can work ‘hands-on’ (gently touching the body) and ‘hands-off’ (Practitioner's hands hover approximately 10cm above the client’s body)
A Reiki Practitioner is also attuned to send Reiki over distance.
The Reiki energy flow will guide the Practitioner
There is no massage or manipulation during a Reiki Treatment. Reiki practitioners are not trained in any medical diagnosis and cannot predict any specific outcome from treatment. If people are concerned about their symptoms they should still consult with their doctor.
