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.
