Jikiden Reiki

What is Jikiden Reiki?

Jikiden Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive therapy with no specific contraindications. Jikiden Reiki is considered suitable for many people, of many ages.

Jikiden Reiki is a Japanese 'directly passed down' form of Reiki taught through the Jikiden Reiki Institute. You can read about the amazing history of this therapy on their website or find more information of the Jikiden Reiki UK Association website.

What is Jikien Reiki
Consultation and Treatment

Initial Consultation

First appointments take 75 minutes which includes a 15 minute consultation.

Depending on the reason for your visit, I will discuss with you whether Shoden, Okuden or a combination of both is the most appropriate approach.

Shoden (Hands-On) Treatments

Shoden is an in-person treatment. It uses the laying on of hands rather than working just in the aura/subtle energy bodies with specific hands-on Jikiden Reiki techniques.


When working on the head and face it is usual for a soft natural clean cloth to be laid across the eyes of the client. This helps to promote both deeper relaxation and also optimal hygeine practice while working near the eyes. This is usually a 'Tenugui' cloth, which is a traditional Japanese cotton cloth.

During a session, clients lay in comfortable clothes on a therapy couch (or sits in a chair if needed) to receive Reiki treatment. There are also blankets or sheets available for a client's individual comfort.

Reiki origininated in Japan, it is carried out by a facilitator placing their hands on (sometimes around) the body of a recipient. In doing so it is understood that a recipient's natural healing systems may be stimulated, it is hoped this will promote healing on all levels.


The way Reiki is delivered will depend on the Reiki tradition that the facilitator is following in. Adaptations can be made in the event that a person does not wish for 'hands-on' for some parts of their treatment, or that a person cannot lay on a massage couch. It is generally considered that the laying on of hands is optimal in Jikiden Reiki Shoden.

Okuden (Hands-off) Treatments

Okuden is a hands-off aspect of Jikiden Reiki, particularly aimed at supporting mental and emotional aspects of well-being.​ Sessions take 60 minutes on their own or can be incorporated with Shoden treatments.

Enkaku (Distance) Treatments

Enkaku sessions may be given across distance and can support overall well-being on all levels as well as supporting the treatment of specific issues from physical to emotional.

Enkaku sessions take around 60 minutes and it is recommended that you spend time resting during and after a distance treatment. Please email Jasmin for more information.
