Nentatsu-ho is a Reiki method for sending a thought or wish, also called a “deprogramming” technique. The technique itself is thought to send a though or wish to yourself (higher self) or that of another with Reiki energy or vibrations.
The technique is simple to do and involves placing your hands another’s head (or your own) and confidently transmitting or sending the message with a pure mind and intent.
It is important to understand that this is not healing with mind power, but rather sending a message to the person’s sub consciousness with the Reiki energy.
Do not push, strain or try to hard as it can create tension for you and the other person. Like all reiki techniques, this is an effortless practice. It is done from a relaxed, meditative state of mind that is free of selfish intent.
This technique is still seen in the west in some attunement sets. It is common for the hands to be placed on the forehead and back of the head and to place an affirmation such as “you are perfectly attuned to the Reiki”, etc., when doing the attunement.
Nentatsu-ho can be used to share or transmit the five principles of Reiki, to remove bad habits, to reinforce good or positive alternate behaviors when treating bad habits, to reinforce functional or positive affirmations and many other possibilities.
If you are doing this for other people, make sure you understand clearly what the other person wants. Make sure you choose positive affirmations.
A. Connect to Reiki. One method is to hold your hands up high in the air to feel the Reiki energy and let its light flow into your whole being.
B. Bring the hands down and place one hand on the forehead (hairline) and the other on the back of the head. The affirmation “I am the Great Universe, Great Life Source and Great Reality” was taught to me to say at this point.
You can say, “you are healed, healthy, well” or any other affirmation that you choose. It is an aid to treatment and healing. The important part is to keep the intent clear, pure and confident.
C. Move the hand on the forehead to the back of the head by placing that hand on top/bottom of the other hand that is already on the back of the head and send the energy there for several minutes.

Reiji means “indication of the spirit” and is the second pillar of Reiki. This is a process that prepares one to give a Reiki treatment. It involves the use of Gassho, a short prayer for the benefit of the client and focus on ones intuitive guidance.
Here’s how it works:
- Do the Gassho meditation, but only for a minute or so.
- Say a prayer giving thanks to the spirit of Reiki and asking it to begin flowing now.
- Say a prayer on behalf of the client, asking that she/he be completely healed.
- Bring your hands up to the third eye and ask the spirit of Reiki to guide your hands to where they are needed.
- Now wait and see what happens.
- Follow your inner guidance and allow your hands to be directed by the spirit of Reiki.
- You will be guided to a certain area of the body.
You may see a body part in front of your inner eye, or the body part to be treated may “jump” out at you. You might even hear what part of the body to treat, or you may simply feel or know where you should start. Some people feel the prompting within their own bodies.
Notice any internal impressions you may get. Use all the clues available to you. Trust your intuitive self.
This word means “treatment” and is the third pillar of Reiki. The kind of treatment Dr. Usui taught relies on ones inner guidance rather than a predetermined set of hand positions. In this way, each treatment is unique and focuses on what the client needs to create wholeness.
After doing Reiji-ho, continue to follow your inner guidance allowing yourself to be directed. Treat as many places on the body or in the aura as you feel compelled to. During this process, allow yourself to enter a very relaxed state and to become one with the Reiki energy.

Our hands always let us know how we feel in our heart. If we love someone, the chances are that we’ll want to touch them. Pet owners reinforce the bond with their furry friends by stroking them. Yet the urge to use our hands to hurt someone or something is a sure indicator that we’ve lost contact with love and affection.
Through healing, the energetic link between the hands and the heart is revealed, and although distant healing begins with thought and intention, your hands will also tell you when you’re working this way.
As you practice, your hands will lead you to where healing energy is needed, because they have a subtle sensing apparatus that is sensitive to energy flow and imbalance.
This sensing mechanism is activated and guided by the power of intuition, a faculty of your higher self. If you practice allowing the sensitivity of your hands to work in tandem with your intuition, your hands will prove to be a guide and helper you can trust.
Your hands have a direct link with the heart energy center in the middle of your chest. Activating the subtle sensing of your palms helps prepare the hands for distant healing or any therapeutic work.
