What Is Reiki?
Reiki is a form of meditative healing that originated in Japan in the 1800s. The healer, or Reiki Master “lays on hands” with gentle movements just above or on the patient’s body.
The goal is to reduce stress and encourage the healthy flow of energy around the body.
During a Reiki session, the practitioner will use a series of hand positions to focus on different parts of the body depending on the goals of the session.
The positions are normally centered around the head, shoulders, stomach, arms, legs, feet and chakras. Chakra is a Sanskrit word that refers to energy points around the body.
Reiki healers believe that certain parts of the body can get energy blocks which cause various ailments in their related body part. There are seven different chakras around the body, each related to a different area.
What Chakra is Associated With Fertility?
The Swadhisthana chakra or sacral chakra is the one most commonly associated with fertility and the reproductive system.
It is located just below your navel so many Reiki masters will focus their healing hand positions in that area during a session.
Reiki Symbol For Fertility
The Yoni mudra (an upside down triangle) is a symbol of female fertility in the Hindu religion. It helps us get in touch with our divine feminine energy.
The word Yoni means womb or source.
To add the Yoni mudra into your fertility practice, you can create the upside down triangle with your hands and gently lay them on your belly as you lay down on your back.
This is a nice practice to do before you fall asleep at night as a means of relaxation and to encourage your body to become a home for your baby-to-be.

How Can Reiki Help Fertility?
Reiki can help with anxiety caused by infertility in both men and women.
Often the stress of not getting pregnant or going through fertility treatments can put you on a vicious circle of anxiety over test results that then hinders your chances of getting pregnant.
This is especially true for couples who have already experienced unsuccessful treatment cycles or previous pregnancy losses.
Reiki can help to address this energy imbalance and unblock the feelings of worry and anxiety in both men and women.

Can Reiki Help With IVF?
Many Fertility clinics, including the one I attended, recommend that women try out a few Reiki sessions as a way of reducing stress and feeling up some of the energy balance that they might feel.
There is no scientific evidence that Reiki can improve your chances of getting pregnant naturally although the internet abounds with women saying that it did just that.
Along with other alternative therapies such as Mayan Abdominal Massage and acupuncture, Reiki may help you to relax and feel more confident in your ability to conceive.
Although there are not many studies that prove Reiki increases IVF outcomes, it cannot hurt them so it is definitely worth trying if you are interested in alternative medicine.
Reiki Hand Positions For Fertility
There are lots of videos on YouTube that you can watch to get an idea of how a Reiki session unfolds.
You can also try some self-healing Reiki hand positions for fertility.
You should be initiated by a Reiki Master before trying these positions yourself so that you are able to transmit the energy flows to your body.
How Often Should You Perform Reiki for Fertility?
Try placing your hands in the same positions as the illustrations below every day for the best results.
Once your Reiki practice is over, make sure to cleanse your hands with cool water to wash away any negative energy that may have surfaced.
- Place your hands on your breasts. This is great for balancing the energy in your breast tissue and helping with fibroids
- Put your hands on your ribcage. This will help with the energy flow to your liver and spleen which is great for detoxifying your body.
- Putting your hands on your belly will help balance the solar plexus of energy and help your reproductive system
4. Place your hands on your pelvic area and uterus to release any blockages in your sacral chakra
5. Put your hands on your knees. Do one at a time then both together.
6.Place one arm on your foot’s base and the other on the top part of your foot.
