Reiki Hand Positions On Self

The following hand positions are used when treating yourself.

Each position should be held for approximately three minutes.

You can however stay on a position for as long as you feel you need to, then move on to the next position. 

The best way to time yourself is to use our Reiki with Tibetan Bell music. This warns you every three minutes, with the beautiful sound of the Tibetan bell, that it is time to change position.
