What Are The Main Reiki Hand Positions?

AdminSelf-Care

Reiki is commonly referred to as hands-on healing. It is a form of healing based on traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurvedic, or traditional Indian medicine. Both have been practiced for more than 5,000 years. It was systematized as Reiki in the late 1800s by Mikao Usui of Japan.

Rise From the Dread: Escape from Stress, Worry, and Anxiety

We can describe it as a form of energy work. Reiki, pronounced RAY-key, focuses on the ki or qi (CHEE), our vital energy. It harnesses that ki for health and healing body, mind, and spirit.

Reiki uses either touch or an energy field, that is, the palms hovering over the body, to support the energy in each of the 14 primary meridians and seven chakras that comprise our energy body. Learning the hand positions can lead to overall health and deep healing, depending on if you have any particular issue you wish to treat.

There are two sets of reiki hand positions. The first set is used to heal yourself. The second set is used if a reiki practitioner intends to support others in their healing process.

To start on Reiki as a healing path, it’s a good idea to first find a legitimate reiki master who can demonstrate his or her lineage, that is, who they studied with, their teacher’s teacher, and so on, all the way back to Usui. He trained more than 2,000 students in his lifetime, so you should be able to find a lineage holder in your area or online.

Once you’ve had a treatment, you might wish to go deeper and study Level 1 reiki so you can practice on yourself on a regular schedule. This requires an attunement from a reiki master first. If you wish to help heal others, you will study Level 2 reiki to help loved ones and pets or extend your health-related offerings, such as nursing or other forms of caregiving.

When treating yourself, the positions are grouped as head positions, body positions, legs, and back positions.

When treating others, the positions are grouped as Head positions, body positions, legs and feet, and back positions.

In both cases, you can hover your hand over or rest your hands lightly, but no pressing down is required as there would be for acupressure.

Each primary meridian is connected to an organ in the body. The chakras are energy centers in the body connected with certain forms of energy.

Once you’ve learned all the hand positions, you will be well on the way to using Reiki to replenish your body, mind, and spirit with peaceful energy.
