Absolutely not! Your solar plexus chakra is located where your ribs meet, between your heart and belly button. Your base/root chakra is said to be in the “groin” area for men (or the base of the spine) but reiki absolutely doesn’t require touching, especially in such a private area!

And as we receive reiki, clients are suppose to be dressed appropriately… The hand has to touch the body.. The technique of not touching the body and jus feeling the energy would be ‘Hands of Light’…We do tht as well…tht is more for clearing heavy energies surrounding a person. If u combine both, u feel as though u r floating…awesome…

Hi, i do reiki healing myself for others and i a have completed reiki masters. Doing reiki at the groin, is for your reproductive organs, bladder… Emotions related to it, would be letting go and stability and gender related. For breast, u have to ask permission from client. Breast is more for those, who have always given and received less. Doing on the breast, releases such emotions…

different practitioners have different practices but you shouldn’t be touched in the groin area at all! I imagine when he’s talking about balancing your solar plexus, he’s really talking about balancing the chakras but still, there is no need to touch you. Reiki is unusual in that you can either use a hands on method or not touch at all. Personally, I don’t touch my clients as I feel stronger energies that way. If he was going to touch you, he should have warned you first adn he should have touched at every point, not just at your groin. I… Read more »

No, that is definitely not reiki. You don’t have to be touched to do reiki, they can just hover their hands over you and it does the same thing.

Thats not right!
In fact if someone is doing Reiki properly their hands do not come into contact with the body at all !

There are two chakras (energy centers) in particular that I expect he may have been working on – the sacral chakra between the pubic bone and the naval, and the root chakra at the peritoneum (between the legs). Working the areas with Reiki is standard practice. From a professional bodywork perspective, if you considered it odd and uncomfortable is was not completely appropriate. When in doubt, I will do Reiki (or any energy healing technique) from about 1-2″ from the body at most areas, leaving my hand at the knees when working the root chakra. Unfortunately, I’m not certain how… Read more »

No practitioner should touch your private areas unless, perhaps a doctor needs to and only if it is absolutely necessary. If that is the case, you should be asked if it is OK to touch you there and the reason for its necessity should be explained. Gloves should be worn.

In other words, your practioner did something unethical and should be reported. If someone does something like that, you should object, but because of the practioner’s status, most people find this difficult and that is why these people get away with unethical practices.

Well there is no such thing as solar plexus “energies”. Energy is defined as a measurement of something’s ability to perform work, or measurable work capability. I’m sure your remember E=mc2. You don’t hear doctors talk about energy fields, that’s because it’s meaningless. I’m not sure about the practitioner’s touching habits, but I can assure you he did nothing beyond relaxation and placebo to help you health wise. Edit: ether, Matrix Energetics eh? Sounds interesting. I admit that I worry when I see some new healing technique promoted that has never gone through the normal medical science channels and peer… Read more »

I am a Reiki Master level 1 and we were told to never touch around the groin or breast area. A Reiki practitioner should never touch anywhere on a person’s body if it makes them feel uncomfortable. Quite honestly I no longer practice Reiki because it makes me feel uncomfortable touching a person’s body. I much prefer Matrix Energetics: http://www.matrixenergetics.com/ It’s healing at the quantum level…the place where miracles happen. Regards Gary Y, ME is pretty new as far as a healing modality but there are many who have been helped by it. In time no doubt there will be… Read more »
