Genetsu Ho is a technique for reducing high temperature / bringing down a fever.

This technique can be incorporated into a general Reiki treatment, or used as a stand-alone practice.

One formal version of the stand-alone application of Genetsu Ho is as follows:

Rest your hands, palms down, on your thighs.

Close your eyes and 'hara-centre' yourself: focus your awareness in your seika tanden

For a few moments, simply 'be' - silently and restfully 'watching the breath': loosely focussing on the natural rhythms of your breathing. There is no interference with the natural process - no seeking to consciously breathe - merely to be aware that you are breathing effortlessly.

Let yourself 'see' and feel the Reiki pervading and permeating your entire being - know that you are one with the phenomenon that is Reiki - part of it.

Staying in this awareness, perform gassho rei (the gassho bow) and make a silent statement of intent - something to the effect that you will now begin this treatment for the healing and wellness of your client.

The client can be lying down for this treatment.

Sitting to the left side of the client's head, place your left hand on their forehead (your right hand may rest in your lap or on your thigh).

Hold this position for as long as you intuit is appropriate (this might be somewhere in the region of 20 to 30 minutes.)

Be aware of the Reiki flow beneath your hands. You may silently affirm the desire that as Reiki flows, the temperature / fever will be - gently - reduced.

When you are ready, move your hands to rest on the client's temples for up to 10 minutes.

Next, reposition your hands to the back of the head and neck for a further 10 minutes or so; then to the throat (10 minutes), then to the crown of the head (10 minutes).

Continue to be aware of the Reiki flow beneath your hands, 'see' and feel the Reiki flow. Be in the experience.

Finally, move your hands to rest on the client's to the stomach and intestines for about 15 minutes.


To complete the procedure, withdraw your hands from the client, and perform gassho rei

Manifest kansha - gratitude - for having been granted this opportunity to assist your client to heal themself.


You can of course also self-treat with Genetsu Ho
