Practice time includes giving and receiving a Reiki treatment using all the hand positions, the self -treatment and practice using all the Japanese Reiki Techniques mentioned above. While practice takes place during the class, it is expected that the student sets aside additional time to practice after the class is over. Please commit to this additional time which should be one evening a week for several weeks, or its equivalent. It's recommended to practice Reiki with one or more people from your Reiki class or with family or friends. This additional practice is necessary to gain the experience and confidence you need to fully utilize the Reiki training.
