Reiki Hand Exercises To Strengthen Your Reiki
Share this:

Hands of the healer

The hands are the most important tool of the Reiki healer.

It is through the hands by which we transmit, send, and invoke the power of Universal Energy...

...without them, we would be stuck trying to send Universal Energy through our heads!

The reason for this is extremely simple - our hands are simply the best way to transmit and give anything to anyone.

In the context of the human body, our legs are designed to move us around...

...our spine is designed to organize our body...

...and our arms are designed to manipulate objects in spacetime.

These are our natural abilities, but it seems as though we have lost them over time due to physical disuse.

Many Reiki healers struggle to channel Universal Energy...not because they can't, but because their hands aren't in proper condition to do so.

It's become clear to me that many Reiki healers take our hands for granted.

Many Reiki teachers are well-meaning and spend a lot of time on developing proper technique and form.

However, many teachers don't tell you how to take care of your hands as a practitioner, and as a result, many students have sore fingers, palms, and wrists.

Remember that our physical pain can manifest itself into the spiritual realms as well...

...so if your hands are weak or incapable of handling the load of energy that you demand it to, your spiritual and energetic body may suffer as a result.

It is therefore imperative that we spend as much time as we can developing our hands so that they are capable of healing others.

Think about it this way - if you're going to cut down a cherry tree with an axe, you don't spend the majority of the time chopping at the tree.

You spend the majority of the time sharpening the axe!

This metaphor serves as a reminder that you need to keep your physical body in top condition, as this will strengthen your Reiki practice more than practicing techniques over and over again (which is still important!).

In this blog post, I'm going to show you 4 hand exercises that have been used to help Reiki practitioners strengthen their Reiki, improve their hand dexterity, and prevent future damage from occurring to them.

These 4 techniques are a few among many, but these are just some of my favorite ones to use.

Read on to learn more...


The Fingers

Our fingers serve as the guiding lights to our hands.

Without our fingers, we would be unable to grab or move objects around.

Worse yet - we'd be unable to transmit energy to any physical body, animal, or object.

Although we use the entirety of our hands to invoke Universal Energy, our fingers radiate this energy throughout and allow for easier transmission to those who need healing.

However, if you practice a lot of healing like I do, your fingers can sometimes cramp up or get locked into place. In addition, your fingers may become numb or totally immovable.

This is because the fingers are receiving a lot of the energetic load, and if your fingers are too weak, they won't be able to handle what it is that you're giving them.

To reduce this from happening and prevent future harm to your hands, try the following exercise.

I call it, "The Tidal Wave Exercise."

To execute this technique, spread your fingers as wide open as you can, as if they were being pulled apart.

Then, stretch your fingers out in front of you as if you were grabbing something really small like a needle.

Retract your fingers in and repeat the process.


You can do this before treating a client or by yourself in the morning, afternoon, or evening.

Make sure to do equal amounts on both sides so that you don't overdevelop one side more than the other.

Once you are comfortable with that, reverse the process so that you clearly understand what is happening at each moment.

To reverse the process:

Start with your fingers outstretched (pretend as if you were making a dog puppet shadow), and slowly retract your fingers inwards to your palms.

Splay your fingers out as wide as you can.

It may seem difficult but give this a try - once in the morning, once in the afternoon, and once in the evening should be good enough to start with.

Remember that you don't want to start off wit too much, as this could result in energetic burnout.

Your fingers may feel a little sore or tingly after doing this exercise for a few days - stick with it, as this is just your energy adjusting to the workload.


Next, we will cover an exercise that will take care of the palm of your hands...

The Palming Exercise
This particular exercise is similar to the Tidal Wave exercise, but places it's emphasis on your palms.

To do this exercise, you need to be able to touch your thumb and fingers together.

For some people, this tends to be difficult and can cause mild cramping - make sure to take the necessary precautions before moving forward with this exercise.

To start, shake out your hands of any stagnant energy.

Next, place your forefinger on your thumb and squeeze them together.

You should feel slight tension in your thumb muscle.

Squeeze for 10 seconds and relax.

Repeat the same process for your middle, ring, and pinky fingers.

Try to keep your thumb as straight as possible for the best effect.

If you feel any cramping, this means that your body is not used to opening itself up in this way.

Simply relax and try it again.


Next, we'll learn the Windmill exercise.

The Windmill
The Windmill allows you to articulate your wrist in full range of motion.

In other words, your energetic system will have more strength in the wrists so that your hands can handle more energy.

Use this conscientiously and make sure to do your best.

Make a tight fist with your hands...

Keeping your shoulder and elbow joint locked into place, rotate the fist around as if you were making a big circle with your knuckles.

Your elbow and shoulder should not move, and the arm should be straight.

Repeat this for 5 times in each direction for each wrist.

You should feel a bit stronger after you complete this exercise.

Last but not least, we will cover the Tension Release.

The Tension Release
The Tension Release exercise is one of my favorites - it's also one of the simplest that you can do.

All that you're going to do is make the tightest fist that you can...

Keep hold of this tension in your hands, as it may leak into your arms.

You only want to feel tense in your hands, in other words.

Maintaining this tension, open up your hands and splay your fingers out.

You don't want to relax yet - hold this for about 10 seconds.

Then relax your hands and slowly make a fist again.

Repeat this process 3-5 times each morning or evening.

When you take care of your hands, you'll notice the difference each time you practice Reiki!

The Power of Vibrations
Share this: By Dave Nelson

You are a powerful vibration capable of manipulating and controlling everything in your immediate surroundings.

This isn’t a secret, but it seems the world is starting to pay attention.

You see, you are a creator.

Everything that you see around you…you created.

No matter how small or cramped it may seem, how many debts or negatives you think surround you…you made them appear there, and if you want, you can make them disappear.

How? First you need to understand what they are, and what you are.

Think of it this way: the table, the seat that you’re sitting on, is moving right now.

It is a vibration.

It appears solid because the sub atomic particles are moving at such intense speeds that it seems solid to you.

Here’s another example: when you take a photograph of a moving car at high speed, the car appears to make a solid line or swoosh line, yet you know that the car was never like that.

Just so your eyes are photographing every second around you and sending the data back to your brain to be processed.

Your brain sees the swoosh line and returns the information as just that. However, everything around you is moving, vibrating and very, very alive.

Here’s how it works on your mind…

(NOTE: You can raise your vibrational level with Reiki Attunements like these here.)

Attunements & Beyond

Remember that your mind is energy.

The thoughts that you create send out thought waves or forms to the universe.

Thought forms, when in their negative state have far more energy behind them, simply because we hate far easier and with far more fervor than we love.

We anger far easier and far quicker than we forgive.

You can see this with the current state of the planet.

Vibrations all around us teeming with negativity, poverty, fear and failure.

Reiki practitioners and other alternative healers, prayer groups, and those awakened to this truth are trying very hard to mend the state of the planet…and sometimes it is not enough for those who suffer.

But still we try.

In this article, I hope that you can see how this works in your life.


Take one thing around you and attempt to find its origin in your own mind. This can be your computer, your phone, your notebook, your clothes…anything.

Try very hard to see the intention behind why you have these things…and you may uncover something deeper than you initially thought.

It may have been a spur of the moment wish, an affirmation in jest, or a silly reaction to an action.

Now, think of something that you didn’t want…and why it came to you.

Perhaps it came suddenly and took you off guard.

Maybe a negative person came into your life…and drained all of your energy.

Whatever negative thing happened to you, remember that they aren’t real – it’s only what you tell yourself that is real.

Your thought forms your reality by sending out vibrations to the Universe.

If you’re unaware of this, you’re at risk for attracting even more negative energy.

This is because no one is separate from another. You can only do your best for yourself and others around you. Every single one of us is connected by a web of energy.

You are not separate from anything in the world.

Everything is connected to everything else.

We have only touched the surface of the true power that each and every single one of us holds inside of ourselves.

(NOTE: You can raise your vibrational level with Reiki Attunements like these here.)

Attunements & Beyond

We have the power to change everything, to change the world, the universe and everything that ever was and ever will be.

The confines of space and time are starting to be broken apart by science, even our...

...theories of moving light and allowing it to exist in two places at precisely the same time in a dark tunnel, is opening and expanding our thinking.

Mankind has only now begun to scratch the surface of the infinite possibilities in our grasp, we have only now begun to awaken to a fraction of our true potentials.

You are capable of being everything and anything you wish to be.

Reiki, the word is comprised of two words to form one, Rei - Soul, and Ki - Energy.

Reiki can be understood as the use of soul energy or divine energy to bring about certain desired effects.

Within Usui Reiki, there are four main symbols...

...all of which have been used across the world and are now being cross-pollinated into other forms of Reiki to produce new symbols to produce results.


The four main symbols of Usui Reiki are:

Cho Ku Rei

Cho Ku Rei is universally known as the power symbol...

...and it is also one of the very first symbols learned when studying Reiki.

A practitioner is usually attuned to this symbol in their level 2 training...but I've had students use it when they just started.

Cho Ku Rei can also be used for protection and in some circles is acceptable for work towards prosperity.

Sei He Ki
Commonly used to fight depression, anxiety, substance abuse and other diseases of the mind, Sei Hei Ki is known across the world as the mental/emotional symbol.

It deals effectively with anything pertaining to emotions and achieving desired mental states of awareness and healing.

Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen
The giver of compassion, Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen is directly translated as ‘Oneness’ and allows any Reiki practitioner to achieve a personal healing state with their client.

This symbol also provides a steadfast bridge across great distances and in turn facilitating distance healing in Reiki.

Dai Ko Myo
Dai Ko Myo in its essence means ‘Bright Shining Light’ or ‘Great enlightenment’ and is the symbol which masters use to transfer attunements.

This symbol is known to hold a great deal of power and has been described as being able to heal the soul of the one who receives it.

It is a combination of all the symbols together.

These symbols also vibrate together to bring you to a higher state of consciousness and being...

...they can be used for a myriad of things and be increasing your vibrational energy is one of them.

(NOTE: You can raise your vibrational level with Reiki Attunements like these here.)

Attunements & Beyond

The Reiki symbols...and very nature of Reiki teachings, practice the Law of Vibration.

This is what allows Reiki to be as effective as it is at healing everything.

You can perform Reiki on your animals, on your plants, on your finances, and on your technology if you so wish.

If you understand the Law of Vibration at its core...

...you will see that what Usui Sensei and those who came before him came to understand was that we are all connected.

The universe is one being, one creation and within it is billions upon billions to the square root of infinity number of subatomic particles vibrating at various frequencies...

...interacting with each other in what we have come to call life.

There is no difference between the man standing in the rain and the woman driving past in her Rolls Royce.

In fact, there is no difference between the man, the rain, the Rolls Royce and the woman.

Everything is energy, everything is united and everything works on the Law of Vibration.

This is the law of Reiki...
