Reiki hand positions
Each position is normally held for one energy cycle. Let the energy/heat build up and when it starts to diminish move to the next position. The back positions need in general less time for each energy cycle. The energy has already filtered through to the back when the front was treated.
If you experience pain or any other discomfort, threat this area direct and if necessary let several energy cycles pass. Let your intuition and Reiki Guides direct you.
...and remember, it is not only humans who benefits from receiving a Reiki treatment. Pets loves it!
