Heso Chiryo Ho is a healing technique focussing on 'systemic' treatment via the navel, which is viewed as important nexus in the healing all manner of diseases.

The Heso Chiryo Ho technique can be incorporated into a general Reiki treatment, or used as a stand-alone practice.

One formal version of the stand-alone application of Heso Chiryo Ho is as follows:

Rest your hands, palms down, on your thighs.

Close your eyes and 'hara-centre' yourself: focus your awareness in your seika tanden

For a few moments, simply 'be' - silently and restfully 'watching the breath': loosely focussing on the natural rhythms of your breathing. There is no interference with the natural process - no seeking to consciously breathe - merely to be aware that you are breathing effortlessly.

Let yourself 'see' and feel the Reiki pervading and permeating your entire being - know that you are one with the phenomenon that is Reiki - part of it.

Staying in this awareness, perform gassho rei (the gassho bow) and make a silent statement of intent - something to the effect that you will now begin this treatment for the healing and wellness of your client.

Stand to the client's left side. With middle finger bent, place your dominant hand over their navel and gently insert the tip of the middle finger into the navel itself, and apply a little pressure to the extent where you can lightly feel a pulse*.

Aware of the pulse, also be aware of the Reiki flow beneath your hand - particularly at the tip of your middle finger.

Maintaining a gentle pressure, continue to let the Reiki flow. 'See' and feel the Reiki flow. Be in the experience.

Continue to monitor the Reiki flow until you begin to sense an equilibrium - a harmonising of the flow of Reiki and the pulse within the navel. (You should also notice the physiological signs that the client has become more relaxed)

This may take several minutes.

When you recognise that enough has been achieved for the current session, withdraw your hand from the client's navel area.

Manifest kansha - gratitude - for having been granted this opportunity to assist your client to heal themself.

To complete the procedure, perform gassho rei


You can of course also self-treat with Heso Chiryo Ho

Obviously, you will have already explained to your client what you will be doing and have received their agreement; and also confirmed that they will let you know if at any point the process becomes uncomfortable.
