How to do the Reiki hand position for the mouth: If you are giving a Reiki treatment to a client, first place tissue over the client’s mouth (for cleanliness) and then create a cradle or bridge with your hands over the client’s mouth but do not touch the mouth itself. Your hands should hover over the mouth. Note: For Reiki self-treatment, it is acceptable to have your hands in contact with the mouth itself during the treatment. Hold the Reiki hand position for the mouth in place at least 10 minutes at a time. Use this Reiki hand position on a regular basis for best results.Note: If the condition you are treating is chronic, meaning that it has been there 3 weeks or longer, it is recommended that you also do full body Reiki treatments because by then, the entire body would be involved in the healing process.
