Reiki Healing can be given to oneself, other people, plants and seeds, animals, food, medicines and situations. Reiki Practitioners progress through three levels of training, to become a Reiki Master/Teacher. At Level One, the practitioner is encouraged to focus on self-healing. The following hand positions are a guide to a Reiki self-treatment. As the practitioner progresses on their Reiki journey, their intuition develops and they can ‘feel’ where their hands are best placed.
A Reiki Healing treatment can be done sitting in a chair, or laying down. Each hand position is held for around 3 minutes, so a full treatment takes around 45 minutes. These healing hand positions are also used when giving healing to another person.
