Reiki Treatment for Mind, Body and Spirit
This section will cover the Reiki hand positions in general and how to use them for specific ailments.
Fixed set of hand positions contra intuitive positions
Traditionally many Reiki practitioners give the whole body treatment covering all the handpositions. This method gives a very good overall healing effect and can be recommended if in doubt about the cause of the problem to be treated. Since the Reiki energy is spiritually guided it will in the end go where it is needed. Many practitioners have found that by being guided by their intuition they can reach even better results. Personally I have always found that this is the case. By combining knowledge from different Eastern medical systems I have created a simple guide to which Reiki positions, in my opinion, that can be used to reach the best effect for different ailments. Below you find the pictures and a description on how the system is built (if you know the traditional hand positions you don't have to learn anything new!).
Reiki Hand Positions on the head
These positions cover the head and chakras 6 and 7. Since many meridians pass through the head this is an important area to treat. (Dr Usui put emphasis on treating the head and secondary the treatment of the problem area.)
