UCHI / OSHI / NADE
TE CHIRYO HO
© 2003 James Deacon
te, Oshi te & Nade te chiryo ho are
three ampuku / shiatsu related massage techniques, and
as such seem somewhat out of place in Reiki.
Uchi te involves tapping with the fingertips, or patting
(not slapping) with the hands, using a light to medium force.
The technique is an 'opening' one - applied to help stimulate
and encourage energy flow and may be utilised at areas of blockage,
inhibition or stagnation.
te involves pushing
with the palms/'heel' of the hands or with the fingertips.
Oshi te is a 'loosening' technique - applied at areas of stiffness
te involves stroking or brushing in linear or circular direction
with the hands. Like Uchi te, Nade te is an 'opening' technique
- applied to help stimulate and encourage energy flow.
In using any of these techniques, one should be aware of Reiki
flowing into the area being worked on.
