EQUIPMENT

You don’t actually need any costly tools as a way to give Reiki to somebody—all you want is your fingers. Nonetheless, in case you intend to hold out any Reiki therapies, it's smart to have one thing appropriate for individuals to lie on. The most suitable choice, in case you can afford it, is a remedy sofa, and there are a number of differing types available on the market. Prices range relying upon which nation you reside in, however within the U.Ok. costs begin at round £150 to £350 for moveable couches, a few of which have adjustable leg heights. Related ones can be found within the U.S. for round $350 to $600. Nonetheless, hydraulically operated static couches can go as much as a number of thousand kilos (or {dollars}). You might discover one secondhand, which shall be cheaper, however the most effective supply of details about appropriate remedy couches is the Yellow Pages, or ads in a well being journal.

One factor to observe for is that many remedy couches are made for the therapeutic massage market, so they're low sufficient to permit the therapist to bend over a consumer and exert some stress. When doing Reiki you want a sofa that permits you to stand beside your consumer along with your fingers held at a cushty peak, which is often someplace across the center of your chest, however no decrease than your waist. In fact, your fingers shall be supported in your consumer’s physique, however nonetheless it may be uncomfortable to carry your fingers nonetheless for about 5 minutes if you need to bend your again to succeed in. Nonetheless, you'll not have to spend money on an costly sofa except you propose to develop into a Practitioner, so within the meantime there are different cheap options.

To begin with, you might use your eating desk. These are often about the suitable peak. Whether it is sturdy and lengthy sufficient, you might place some thick foam on prime and canopy it with a sheet. One other various might be a heavy-duty adorning desk with foam on prime. The heavy-duty fashions are product of stronger supplies, and have picket braces that may be screwed into place to make the entire thing strong.

If you're fairly agile, you might do therapies with an individual mendacity on a cot or chaise longue with you sitting on the ground along with your legs underneath the mattress. It's also potential to do therapies with individuals mendacity on the ground or on a standard divan mattress, however whereas these could be fairly enjoyable for the particular person you're treating, they are often very uncomfortable for you except you're used to sitting cross-legged on the ground. It's also potential to provide somebody a Reiki therapy whereas they're sitting in a chair, and I talk about that later on this chapter.

In every of the above instances, additionally, you will want a number of pillows, pillowcases, fitted sheets (stretch toweling is greatest) to suit over the remedy sofa or over the froth layer if you're utilizing that, and a comfortable blanket to cowl the consumer.
