A Reiki-Seichem Treatment

If they are unable to lie down, the treatment can be given in a sitting position, the main thing is for the recipient to be as comfortable as possible. There is no need to remove any clothing as Reiki will pass through anything, even plaster casts. The practitioner gently places their hands non-intrusively in a sequence of positions which cover the whole body. The whole person is treated as well as specific symptoms. A full treatment usually takes about 1 hour with each position held for several minutes.
