A Method of Healing using the Breath
Copyright © 2006 James Deacon

In Reiki practice, one will often come across situations where, for various reasons, one cannot utilise the basic form of 'hands-on' treatment.

In some cases, such as where the client is suffering from burns, or an open wound of some sort, the need for hands-on contact can be circumvented by giving treatment with the hands held a few inches off the surface of the body (in the aura).

However, there will be situations where even the close proximity of the hands (even though not touching the client), can have potentially traumatic effects [various forms of abuse come to mind].

Especially in such cases, Koki Ho can be used effectively.

Koki Ho

Become aware of the flow and radiance of the Reiki phenomenon within and around your own body.

Know that, while generally Reiki seems to flow most strongly from, and can be directed by, the hands, it also flows from, and can be directed with, the breath

Bring your attention to the area in need of treatment; relax, breathe naturally.

Generate heart-felt compassion for your client.

Breathe in gently through the nose, effortlessly taking the breath down into the tanden area in the lower abdomen.

With lips pursed slightly, exhale - gently*.

As you do so, be aware of Reiki flowing out with your breath, towards the area in need of treatment.

Feel the Reiki flow; see it in your mind's eye, at the same time feel compassion flowing from your heart.


*The exhalation is not forceful - do not 'blow' so much as allow the breath to 'escape' (in a focussed and sustained way) to the treatment area.


NOTE: Closely related to Koki Ho is the practice of Kokiyu Ho.

These two are often confused.
