(Group Reiki Treatment)
© 2003 James Deacon
Shuchu Reiki involves a group of Reiki practitioners working together
on a single client.
This can make for a shorter treatment time, and the 'intensity'
of the treatment is increased as more practitioners are involved
[though as to whether or not a greater intensity necessarily equates
with a more effective treetment, is debatable]
One version of the group treatment familiar in several western
styles of Reiki involves an equal number of practitioners working
on each side of the client's body, and one working at the head.
While symmetry of treatment is the goal here, it is not absolutely
there are not enough people to cover all the positions when working
on the front or back of the client, (especially when using a hand
placement-set with a large number of positions), then just as
in a standard one-person treatment, the practitioners may move
on to other positions in succession.
