Wearing metal during Reiki treatments
I was told that we should remove all (or as much as possible)
jewelery/metal from our bodies, and those of our 'subjects'. Two
1. How essential is this?
Usually Not very, to not at all. I was taught that
originally took care to follow that instruction but a number of
sessions with people who were extremely well decorated with non
removable jewelry convinced me that as long as I don't catch my hand in
trailing chains it usually makes no difference to the client's
ability to receive Reiki. You would not want to snag
or clunk the client with your pendant. Unless the jewelry
is heavy or fragile or
could get tangled in clothes it can be left on . When it is
reasonable to do so I do ask
people to remove jewelry that might get in the way. I have done
a goodly amount of work in
booths at shows for seated clients and the jewelry did not interfere
with receiving Reiki.
2. Will Reiki pass through metal objects as though they
Yes, in my experience Reiki does pass through metal
objects as though
they weren't there.
I once did a treatment on someone wearing a SCA suit of
armor, Reiki worked fine.
