Reiki Hand Positions for Healing Others with Downloadable PDF Chart

32

Standard Reiki treatments usually last for an hour or so, and they cover all body areas and chakras.

The images below are suggested hand positions for healing others. We have another article with hand positions for self-healing here.

There are variations of these positions, and some Reiki Masters teach different hand positions. If you’re in doubt, it’s best to stick to what your Reiki Master has taught you, or to follow your intuition, try different things, and see what works best for you.

At the end of the article, there’s a PDF chart you can download and print.

  1. Insightful and interesting book…Many thanks for this wonderful book and I look forward using this on many different areas with my clients.

    Fran from: Infinite Rainbow Tarot Card Readings

    • I have read that we shouldn’t place hands on the crown chakra during a treatment as it can block the crown chakra from the divine/source.
      I have always placed hands on crown chakra in treatments so was a bit shocked to read this

  2. Is it ok not to put the hands on the back of the body??? I knew that we should give reiki on both sides of the body.Somebody could explain?

  3. Very helpful. After a bit of experience this becomes unnecessary. You just sit in room with client and let it flow! You can also use an energy ball and monitor it as it moves thru the client. It amazes me how many “Masters” don’t include hand positions in the workbooks.

  4. Mada,, front and back, yes,, in advanced levels you will know different! “Intention” is key. Also you will evolve into an “Artiste” of Reiki and realize how many options you have in delivering a thorough session. Thank you Reiki Rays for all the help and info that you provide. Namaste’

  5. Thank you for sharing these tips and charts – it is very generous of you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  6. Thank you very much for allowing this download. This and the personal healing chart is amazing, so simple to understand, but so effective. I will use it with my students to help spread the Reiki message. Thank you so much, for this and your website which is full of good information and help.

  7. I love all your interesting and informative articles. First thing I do every morning is to go on Facebook and read and save all your nice tricks on Reik and then practice them. Thanks so much for your generosity.

  8. I love doing Reiki on my clients feet…one hand on top and one on the bottom. The hands just seem to naturally fit in this position. I see people visibly relax with this hand position and sometimes even sigh out loud. It is wonderful.

  9. Thank you so much for the charts they will be very useful. Thank you also for the books I am really enjoying them and rediscovering the delight of Reiki x
