KETSUEKI KOKAN HO, HANSHIN KOKETSU HO & ZENSHIN KOKETSU HO


Ketsueki kokan ho, hanshin koketsu ho & zenshin koketsu ho are the so-called 'blood-exchange' techniques
- or, more properly blood CLEANSING techniques.

There are several versions of these cleansing techniques taught in various different 'schools' of Reiki.
( Some only teach teach hanshin koketsu ho & zenshin koketsu ho.
)

 

KETSUEKI KOKAN HO
(The Reiki 'Blood Exchange')
Copyright © 2004 James Deacon


The "Blood Exchange" technique - ketsueki kokan-ho - is more properly a blood CLEANSING technique.

A version used in 'western' style Reiki is often called the 'Finishing' or 'Smoothing' technique or 'Nerve Stroke'

One version of ketsueki kokan-ho is as follows:

The client should be lying on their front.

Stand to one side of the client

Which side you choose depends on which is your dominant hand (not necessarily the hand you write with, etc. but the hand you consider to be dominant - Reiki-wise)

You should stand so that your NON-dominant hand is nearest to the client's head.

Place your non-dominant hand flat across the occipital ridge (base of the skull) and place your dominant hand beside it, flat across the top of the client's spine (so that the spine is actually covered by your palm).

With firm intent - smoothly - and at a steady, even pace, stroke down the length of the spine to the tailbone.

DO NOT apply any pressure to the spine (you may in fact carry out this 'sweep' without any actual physical contact - your hand some millimetres above the surface of the client's body/clothing*.

When you reach the tailbone, lift your hand away from the client and return it to the starting position at the top of the spine. DO Not sweep back up the spine, rather arc away from it.

Repeat the 'sweep' another 14 times. On completion of the last sweep, rest your hand on the tailbone for about 15 -30 seconds and let reiki flow - bringing the spinal energies into balance.

This completes the process.

 

ZENSHIN KOKETSU HO
(Full Body Blood Cleansing)


One version of zenshin koketsu ho is as follows:


[First treat the client's head and front, using the formal hand positions]

The client should ideally be lying on their front (though the technique can be applied with the client lying on their back).

You will be working on each side of the client in turn. Which side you choose to work on first is up to you.

Place your non-dominant hand flat on the client's shoulder.

With firm intent - smoothly - and at a steady, even pace, stroke along the shoulder and down the length of the arm to the tips of the fingers

DO NOT apply any pressure to the shoulder or arm (you may in fact carry out this 'sweep' without any actual physical contact - your hand some millimetres above the surface of the client's body/clothing*)

When you reach the fingertips, lift your hand away from the client and return it to the starting position at the top of the shoulder. DO Not sweep back up the arm, rather, arc away from it.

Repeat the 'sweep' another 14 times.

Moving to the other side of the client, repeat the process on their other shoulder and arm.

Next, move to a position close to the clients thigh, and placing your non-dominant hand on the outside of the client's hip, perform a stroke down the outside of their leg and along their foot to the tips of the toes. As with the arms, be mindful not to apply any pressure.

Repeat the 'sweep' another 14 times.

Moving to the other side of the client, repeat the process on their other hip and leg.

 

HANSHIN KOKETSU HO
(Half Body Blood Cleansing)


One version of hanshin koketsu ho is as follows:

[The client should be either lying on their front, or seated.]

Place your hands at the base of the client's neck - one hand on either side of the spine.

Each hand strokes outwards and down, tracing the line of the client's shoulders.*

Returning your hands to a position either side of the spine, though a few centimetres lower than previously, repeat this stroking gesture - hands moving outwards in a slight arc to the clients sides.

In this manner, gradually work your way down the client's back, a few centimetres at a time, stroking outwards from their spine to their sides.

It should ideally take between 10 and 15 sweeps to reach the area of the coccyx.

Next, placing your index and middle fingers (some suggest thumb and index, yet others, only the middle finger) of each hand on either side of the spine at the base of the client's neck, hold your breath and sweep steadily downwards to the clients coccyx.

DO NOT apply any pressure to the spine (the 'sweep' may be carried out without any actual physical contact*)

Exhale and pause for a moment before repeating the sweep.

This should be done a total of between 10 and15 times.

[As an alternative to this 'spinal sweep' using the fingers, you may carry out the procedure detailed under the heading ketsueki kokan-ho, above.]


________

* It is perhaps important to be mindful that in many places there are laws in place governing the practice of Massage - and in these places, the application of pressure or physical-contact 'sweeps' when using techniques such as ketsueiki kokan, hanshin koketsu ho and.zenshin koketsu ho may well be construed as "manipulative".


[Some teach Ketsueki Kokan ho,.Hanshin Koketsu ho and.Zenshin Koketsu ho at Shinpiden rather than at Okuden]

________

'The Nerve Stroke'

Takata-sensei's version of the process, in her own words:

"I finish the treatment with a nerve stroke which adjusts the circulation.
Apply on the skin a few drops of sesame oil or any pure vegetable oil.
I place my thumb and fore finger on the left side of the spinal column and the three fingers and palm flat on the right side of the spinal column.
With a downward stroke, 10 to 15 strokes to the end of spinal cord.
Only in diabetic cases are the strokes reversed; arms and legs are manipulated towards the heart.
