Reiki Hand Placements

First Reiki Hand Placement

The Everything Guide to Reiki / Adams Media / Norma Medley
There are twelve basic hand placements used when giving yourself a Reiki treatment.

First position: Palms of your hands are placed against your face, cupping your hands over your eyes lightly and fingers upon your forehead. No pressure needed - touch lightly!

About these images: The Reiki hand placements in this step-by-step pictorial are the same pictures in my book, The Everything Reiki Book, originally published in 2004. The artwork was adapted from photos of my daughter demonstrating Reiki hand positions. These same Reiki pictures will be depicted in a revised edition of the book. The Everything Guide to Reiki will be available in retail markets January 2012.
