A typical Reiki treatment involves the placement of the practitionerís hands in specific hand positions at multiple locations above or lightly on the body. Reiki is performed over oneís clothes, so there is no need to disrobe. It is gentle and entirely painless. At the end of a treatment, it is common to feel calm and deeply relaxed.
