A standard Reiki treatment covers most body areas, and all the seven chakras – and it usually lasts about an hour or a little over.
As the practitioners give the treatment, either to themselves or to other persons, they tend to listen to their intuition and spend more time on areas which “draw more energy” compared to the others. If you don’t feel the energy flow yet, don’t worry, just spend equal time in each position.
There are variations of these positions, and some Reiki Masters teach them differently. Some may teach more or fewer positions. If in doubt, do as your Master has taught you, or follow your intuition.
The images below are suggested hand positions for self-healing and for healing others.
