Self Healing w Pictures

Before we begin, please read through this page for information about self healing.

Ok, so start by mentally saying the three lines of gratitude, where you thank the healer, Reiki and the client. In this case, the healer as well as the client is you. “Thank you <your name>, Thank you Reiki, Thank you <your name>“.

Place your hands on the crown chakra – the top of your head, and desire for Reiki to flow through your palms. Remember to place your hands on each chakra for as long as it feels right.

Next, heal the brow chakra, placing your hands on your face.

Heal the throat chakra, letting your palms cover the neck area as well as the spot between your collar bones.


Place your hands on the heart chakra next.

The solar chakra is located 3 fingers above the navel. Place your hands over here.

The hara center is 3 fingers below the navel. This is your next position.


The root chakra is located at the tip of your tailbone. To heal this from the front, women can place their hands over the groin, and men place their palms on the thighs, touching the torso.

Once you are done with the front chakras, start healing the back chakras.

To heal the back brow chakra, place your palms on the back of your head.

Place your palms on the base of the neck for the back throat chakra.



To heal the back heart chakra, you could place your hands the way it is shown in the picture if that is easy. But since this is a hard to reach location for most people, I recommend placing your hands in the front on your heart, and requesting Reiki to heal the back heart. If you have a problem reaching any other back chakra, you can use the same method.

The back solar chakra is where your ribs end, in your back.

The back hara chakra would be just above your belt line.


The root chakra is located at the tip of the tailbone, just place your hands there to heal the back root.

Next, place your hands on the ears, knees and feet respectively, and also shoulders and thighs if you need to.


Bring your palms together and end by saying the three lines of gratitude again.
