In addition to an introduction and a description of the basic principles and benefits of Reiki, the book is organized into three ailment category sections, which allow the reader to access it in three different ways: by location, body system, and chakra.
Ailments by Location (head/neck, chest, upper abdomen, pelvis, legs/feet)—Sometimes we have discomfort or disease in a particular part of our body and don't really know the cause or source of these issues. By following a protocol that uses hand positions associated with particular locations in the body, we can begin to address some of these issues.
Ailments by Body System (immune, circulatory, gastrointestinal, respiratory, muscular and skeletal, endocrine, nervous)—By following a protocol that uses hand positions associated with particular imbalances in one or more of these systems, we may begin to address some of the issues caused by stress or injuries acquired in our daily life.
Ailments by Chakra (root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, crown)—These seven energy centres flow from the top of the head to the base of the spine and are associated with certain characteristics (for example, security, vulnerability, and trust). By following a protocol that uses hand positions associated with imbalances in one or more of these energy centres, we can begin to address some of these imbalances.
