A typical treatment

During a Reiki session you remain fully clothed (loose, comfortable clothing is suggested) while comfortably reclining on a massage table or seated in a chair.

Reiki treatment proceeds with the practitioner placing their hands on the recipient in various positions. Some practitioners use a non-touching technique, where the hands are held a few centimetres away from the recipient's body.

The hands are usually kept still for 3 to 5 minutes before moving to the next position. The hand positions usually give a general coverage of the head, the front and back of the torso, knees and feet. A treatment can last from 30 to 90 minutes depending on what has been discussed prior to booking. The recipient often feels warmth or tingling in the area being treated, even when using a non-touching approach. A state of deep relaxation combined with a general feeling of well-being is usually the most noticeable immediate effect of the treatment.

Training & Licensing

In absence of formal recognition in the west, independent governing bodies operated by practitioners have developed their own standards and certifications. This provides the public with a point of reference when seeking advice on Reiki. Reiki knowledge is passed from Master to student. Authentication of a Reiki practitioner is based upon a lineage that can be traced back to Dr. Mikao Usui, the founder of Reiki. A Reiki practitioner should have a

certification from a source that recognizes this lineage. Reiki practitioners can attain up to three levels of 'attunements'. The term Reiki Master can only be applied to those that have achieved level three – the level that must be reached in order to teach Reiki to others.
