The Role of the Reiki Massage Therapist

The Practitioner is:

Alert, yet calm and at ease with the situation, knowing that Reiki will do no harm.

Meditative, yet present to the possibilities of transformation for higher good.

Accepting, yet mindful of negative elements that could block out or prevent healing.

Centered, yet flexible, trusting that Reiki will provide healing and protection.

Courageous, yet empowering the client for self healing and development..

Creative, yet disciplined in offering professional care to all.

Discerning, yet compassionate and caring without discrimination.

Effective, yet humble, giving thanks to the client, Reiki guides, and other higher powers.

Energetic, yet supple and kind in thoughts and touch.

Focused, yet without expectations, concentrating on the flow of Reiki in the hands.

Gentle, yet firm in the use of guiding principles and practices.

Grounded, yet moving without physical restrictions or blocks to Reiki.

Intuitive, yet logical in the application of respectful techniques.

Loving, yet non-intrusive in ways that would violate the client’s well being.

Open, yet mindful of accountability for thoughts and actions.

Patient, yet actively engaging the power of Reiki and client self-healing.

Prayerful, yet not with blind faith, asking for mind-body-spirit alignment with intention.

Relaxed, yet attentive to the client’s and one’s own emotional and physical needs.

Responsible, yet stepping aside of ego-driven judgments and procedures.

Sensitive, yet surrendering to Reiki guidance within ethical boundaries.

Strong, yet yielding to the flow of Reiki to where it is most needed.

Thankful, yet releasing attachment to ways inappropriate for the profession.

I had no idea there was a difference between reiki massage and a regular massage. It seems like a reiki massage uses a more holistic approach. Do you find that clients are receptive to this type of a massage?
