Several people ask me about distant Reiki so I thought this post may help you understand it a bit better...

What is "Distant Healing" ?
- Distant healing is a Reiki session that is sent from a Reiki
practitioner or master in one geographic location to a person who
requested the healing in another geographic location.
Does Distant Healing work as well as physical Reiki treatments? -
Yes, the results of distant healings are just as good as the results of
sessions done in the physical. Being treated with Reiki (a series of
sessions) via the distant technique is also as effective.
Where does this distant healing technique come from? -
Dr. Usui who developed Reiki also developed the distant healing
technique. He called it "The Photograph Technique." He called it that
because he required a photo of the person receiving Reiki in order to
send the Reiki energy to them.
Can anybody do distant healing sessions? - Anyone who is a Reiki Practitioner or a Master can provide this service.
Can I request distant healing for someone else?
- Yes you can. It is courteous to have their permission before
requesting healing for them. Sometimes the person needing the healing
can't be asked. In these situations, many Practitioners and Masters
will send Reiki with the condition that it be received only if the
person that it is sent to is willing to receive it. In this way,
nothing is forced on anyone.
Is this the same as prayer? -
No, not really. With a prayer, we are asking for someone to be healed.
We send our prayer and ask that healing be sent to the one for whom we
pray. With a distant healing session, the Practitioner is sending Reiki
directly to the person wanting or needing the healing. In this way they
Does distant healing cost money?
- There are many places and people found on the internet that will send
distant healing free of charge. There are others who want to be
compensated for their work. There is no rule about this.
How much information should I give when requesting distant healing?
- As much as you feel comfortable giving. At the minimum, you need to
provide the person's name and the physical location at the time the
healing is to be received. This is usually enough on anonymous request
boards and prayer services. If you are working with someone on a
regular basis, you may want to provide more information. Emailing
scanned photos to the provider can increase the strength of the
connection for some healers.
Are there other names for "Distant Healing" ?
- Yes. Some Reiki practitioners and masters refer to distant healing as
"abstensia healing" or it may be called "remote healing". These are all
Are there other uses for "distant healing" other than sending healing to some one? -
Yes. This technique can be used to travel across time, rather than
across physical distances. This is a good technique for working with
childhood issues or traumas, any thing that has happened to us in the
past. Used in this way, this technique can be employed during physical
Reiki sessions or again, can be sent via the distant healing technique

convenient way to enhance your life without leaving the comfort of your
home. It's power as a remote energy healing technique is equal to that
of Reiki hands-on energy healing treatments.
Hope this helps
