Can a practitioner give Reiki without using his hands?

Q: Can a practitioner give Reiki without using his hands?

A: YES! Reiki works by intention. The hands are not blasting energy out like Shazaam. The hands allow the practitioner to observe the energy as it flows, so the practitioner can sense where a person may have an energy blockage, pain, or other issues. The energy is being received by the recipient, due to the intention of the practitioner, and the openness of the recipient to receive the energy.

Here’s a video of me (Alice) sending Reiki to all of you, using only my intention, during a song I really like. Can you feel the energy?
