Press Here! Reiki for Beginners Book and Card Deck is a complete home practitioners guide to a healing and spiritual practice, this contemporary take on a traditional practice makes Reiki accessible to a new generation of readers-with flash cards that focus on the full range of hand positions and provide a great memory aid for anyone wishing to practice.
Press Here! Reiki for Beginners Book and Card Deck presents the 30 traditional Reiki hand positions-12 for self-help (practising on yourself) and 12 for family-help (practising on others)-that provide calm, soothing comfort that may help to relieve pain, stress, and anxiety and offer reassurance and support for physical and mental disease. In addition to an introduction and a description of the basic principles and benefits of Reiki, the book is organised into three ailment category sections, which allow the reader to access it in three different ways: by location, body system, and chakra.
Ailments by Location (head/neck, chest, upper abdomen, pelvis, legs/feet)-Sometimes we have discomfort or disease in a particular part of our body and don't really know the cause or source of these issues. By following a protocol that uses hand positions associated with particular locations in the body, we can begin to address some of these issues.
Ailments by Body System (immune, circulatory, gastrointestinal, respiratory, muscular and skeletal, endocrine, nervous)-By following a protocol that uses hand positions associated with particular imbalances in one or more of these systems, we may begin to address some of the issues caused by stress or injuries acquired in our daily life.
Ailments by Chakra (root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, crown)-These seven energy centres flow from the top of the head to the base of the spine and are associated with certain characteristics (for example, security, vulnerability, and trust).
By following a protocol that uses hand positions associated with imbalances in one or more of these energy centres, we can begin to address some of these imbalances. The Press Here! series offers contemporary takes on traditional hands-on healing practices for a new generation of practitioners. These introductory guides feature easy-to-access organisation, clear instructions, and beautiful illustrations of each technique. Other Press Here! topics include massage, reflexology, and acupressure.
