various methods for performing Enkaku Chiryo.
The following is the primary method taught by Takata-sensei:
is now generally referred to as Distant (or Distance) Healing/Treatment,
Takata-sensei spoke of as "Absent Healing".
[She used the term Local Healing for hands-on work.]
taught that for absent healing, if you don't know the person
(to be treated) you need to get a picture - with a clear image
of their face - so that you can visualize them when you close
your eyes. [You do not use the photograph when doing the healing
treatment, only to see what they look like so you can clearly
your eyes. Call their name three times as you concentrate on
the image of that person [in your mind]. Write the HSZSN on
their 'forehead', followed by the CKR. "Then everything
is set for you to treat"
method is very much in line with the 'see it, say it, do it'
should visualize giving a full treatment and actually do that
treatment in the air. Do the positions for the head, then the
front of the body (large CKR over the torso), then the back
(large CKR starting at the left shoulder, then all the way down
the back), giving a running commentary to the client as to what
you are doing, e.g:
"I start the treatment on your head. I'm treating your
eyes; your sinuses; [etc, etc] Now I'm treating your front:
your chest, [etc, etc]. Now I'm turning you over, treating your
back... your lumbar area, [etc, etc]. Now I'm rubbing your back.[At
the end of the treatment we should rub the back to aid the circulation.]
Now I am finished"
performing an absent healing treatment, the treatment is [solely]
sent to the client: the practitioner does not receive treatment
absent healing, the treatment should only be thirty minutes
as it is a concentrated treatment. Switch off the phone. Do
what you can to ensure you won't be disturbed. You don't want
your concentration scattered.
giving absent healing treatment daily, by the third day or fourth
day you can reduce the length of time you are treating for:
twenty minutes is enough.
only one person at a time. A maximum of three people in succession
[i.e. during any one session]
said she preferred to do absent healing early in the morning
(5.30 -6.00 am) because the energy was 'higher'.
spoke of doing absent healing treatment, and of 'sending' good
thoughts. [She did not talk of 'sending Reiki energy']
