Well, there two ways to it – One could do it oneself or by taking the help of two to three people who know the art of doing it. The whole Reiki process passes through the guru-shishya (teacher-disciple) tradition. A Reiki specialist absorbs the cosmic energy or the vital life force energy in the different endocrine glands of his body. This energy passes by his hands to different animate/inanimate bodies through the touch.
