During the treatment, trust in your hands, Listen to vibrations or reaction. If there is pain, it registers pain in your finger tips and palm. If the patient has itch, it reacts the same; if deep and chronic, it throbs a deep pain; or if acute, the pain is a shallow tingle.
Scanning is a technique used to sense imbalances in the energy field. When you know what areas need the most attention, it is possible to focus the treatment and get straight to the heart of the matter.
Start at the recipient’s left foot and place your hands about 2-6 inches above the body2Instead of going round in a circular movement, you can also start from the crown, go down to the feet, and then back up to the crown.. Slowly work your way up the left side to the head and then back down the other side to the opposite foot. This can be repeated as many times as you wish. If you wish, during the final pass, you can move both hands up the centre of the client’s body, up to the head, and then separate the hands at the crown before they pass down each side of the body.
As you are scanning, you may sense blocked areas by tingling, heat, cold, pain, attraction, repulsion, or you may find your hands stop ‘on their own’ over the relevant area. These sensations are known as hibiki. This is a Japanese word which can be translated as echo. What we experience is a a reflection of what the recipient is feeling. There’s no need to give these echoes too much importance; and it’s not the time to begin judging something as positive or negative. Use hibiki as a sign that the recipient is experiencing or is ready to experience some kind of release in this area.
When you sense any sensations or even a direct feeling that something is out of balance, you choose what to do. You can treat this area right now, before doing the hand positions. Or you can make a mental note of which areas seemed to trigger hibiki, and use that information to guide you later during the session. Perhaps those areas will need more energy.
