Reiki as a remedy for fever (“genetsu-ho”)

In my previous posts, I have shared that reiki works for various ailments such as stress, back pains, psychological issues, etc. In this post, I will write about reiki works well also for fevers. In Japanese, we often use the word “ge-reiki-as-a-remedy-for-feversnetsu” (解熱) which literally means to breakdown the fever.

Fever is often a sign that your body is fighting an illness caused by an infection (bacteria or virus), so although it is not pleasant to be feverish allow your body to fight by enhancing the natural flow of the “ki” into your body. However, it is recommended to consult your physician, especially if the fever persists.

Key treatment areas for a fever

According to Frank Arjava Petter’s “This is Reiki” (p. 243 ), there are 5 places where you give reiki when you have a fever in the order of:

  1. forehead
  2. temples
  3. back of the head
  4. neck
  5. throat
  6. top of the head
  7. stomach
  8. intestines.

As a principle, you always start with the head (about 30 minutes or more), then treat the stomach and intestines (10-15 minutes). Petter also advises to give additional 15 minutes of treating the kidneys to help the body to get rid of the excess temperature.

Focus on the head area

When you have a fever, the most likely place you’ll feel it is the head, so it is fine to reiki-for-fevergive reiki to the head alone. When my son has a fever, I try to give reiki on his head, but he doesn’t like to sit still for a long time, so I wait until he is a sleep then place my hand on his forehead or on the top of his head. I also give reiki to his stomach area.

This is not reiki, but as a general rule, remember to drink lots of water, but remember to drink enough water, but it should be warm or luke warm water (Chinese medicine) and never cold or ice water, although it may be tempting.

    • Hi Naz, thanks for your message. As a general rule, unless there’s pain or discomfort on a specific part of the body, the best place to start is the head. Then depending on the ‘byosen’ (where you feel the energy lacking) you follow the byosen. If you have more questions let me know.

  1. Hi, I was attuned for only 3 symbols which is the power symbol, balance symbol and distance symbol. Do I have to be attuned to this symbol in particular (genetsu-ho)?

    • Hi Bloss, thank you for your message. You don’t need to use your symbol for the genetsu-ho (but you can if you want to) and simply apply your hands to the head and allow the “ki” to flow. Simplicity is the best part of reiki!

  2. I generally feel more cold than others and due to this cold I am not able to get a sound sleep even though I cover myself with several layers of warm blankets. How can Reiki help me. What are the areas I can apply Reiki to regulate my body temperature specially at night so that I can sleep soundly?

    • Hi Vijayalakshmi, thank you for your comment. I know several people who have similar issues. In addition to wearing warm socks and using blankets, I would suggest to give reiki to your feet, head, and stomach areas to start with and anywhere else you feel the energy circulation is lacking. Drinking warm/hot water or herbal tea may also help. Please take good care.
