A Reiki Treatment - What Happens ?
During a Reiki treatment session the therapists, or practitioners, lay their hands lightly on the body of the client. Through this simple and straightforward act energy flows between the therapist and the client. The objective of this flow of healing energy is for the giver (the practitioner) to relieve the ills of the receiver (the client). The client must be open to receive the flow of energy from the Reiki therapist.
With Reiki the energy has an intelligence and does not need to be directed to the source of the pain or angst. It is the intentions of the giver and receiver that matter most. A willingness to heal and a willingness to be healed. All the practitioner needs to do is to facilitate the energy flow and do nothing that will impede it.
Reiki Hand Positions
By tradition a Reiki treatment employs a range of hand positions. Usually these hand positions are equally spaced over the body to give total coverage. It has been observed that the positive energy may stay close to wherever the therapist has placed his / her hands. To avoid this the practitioner should attempt to cover the entire body thereby ensuring an even distribution of the energy.
Some Reiki teachers prescribe particular hand positions however these should be only used as a guideline. Individual therapists should adapt their hand positions to the particular needs of their client. It is customary to sweep through the energy of the client in order to locate the hot spots that require the positive energy.
Client Comfort During Reiki Treatment
During the Reiki session it is the responsibility of the practitioner to do everything possible to ensure that the client does not experience any discomfort. Equally the therapist must also operate in a manner and in conditions that are comfortable for the therapist. Treatments can last for up to 60 minutes so comfort for both is vital. Many practitioners now use adjustable massage tables that can be adjusted to an appropriate height for optimum comfort for both client and Reiki therapist.
Reiki Treatment and Body Privacy
As with conventional medicine there will be times when the Reiki therapist will need to address areas of the client's body that are sensitive from a privacy or modesty point of view.
To ensure client comfort it is crucial that the practitioner deals with the client sensitively. Certainly he or she must ask for permission before touching any sensitive body part.
Even with permission it is recommended that the practitioner explains what he / she is doing at all times. In other circumstances it may be preferable for the Reiki practitioner to place his / her hands over the hands of the client's hands which are over the area to be treated.
