The person receiving Reiki is fully clothed during a Reiki session. The practitioner will discuss hand placement prior to the session, so you will know what to expect. He/she can also help answer any questions you might have. During a Reiki session, the practitioner will place his/her hands lightly on or above different areas of your body. Usually, the practitioner’s hands rest on or above an area for three to five minutes before moving on to the next area. There is no specific order to the locations where the practitioner’s hands are placed. Sessions last from approximately five to 20 minutes.
