From my perspective, Therapeutic Touch and Reiki have both morphed into something completely different then what they were originally.

I also see similarities in both.

I'm not familiar with TT but I am with Reiki. Reiki involves directing energy from the practitioner via Reiki symbols to the receiver. I don't think TT is meant to channel energy outside of the receiver from the practitioner. But in practice, it probably does channel energy from the practitioner to the receiver in certain practitioners.

I was taught in Reiki the energy does NOT come from the practitioner, the practitioner is the conduit for universal energy. I took a theraputic class and it was very different, the energy comes from the practitioner and there was a discussion about the practitioners taking on the illnesses the "cured" for others. I never practiced theraputic touch as I had already been practicing reiki. It was an interesting class though. Kind of mainstream, which I guess is one way to get people to start thinking outside the box.

Nurses in my area can use a theraputic touch class as credit towards their additional training that they have to do every 2 years.

I’ve done reiki and more recently pellowah.
One is hands on or off (as it’s taught) pellowah is hands off and no music, scents or distractions.

So even as I have never followed rules, I’m very aware both practices ignite differently simply because of how they are practiced. Allowing someone to be in the shared energy space without touch or distractions, opens up the awareness differently to reiki, not because of the energy but because of how the practice is shared.



As I’ve grown through both I have become aware that as everything is energy including myself, the one receiving and everything in that shared space. So it’s not so much what’s happening from the external but rather, what’s being remembered in that shared space, from within. Opening to energy, feelings, touch, or any sensory data moving through the practice, is simply the awareness or opening as the shared space opens. It becomes what each one needs and is ready to open too.


I’m being reminded in my everyday interactions with animals, people that in my interactions I can connect as I am, but also I’m still becoming aware of myself in how I can expand my awareness in the shared space of all those different aspects of myself present in the shared space.

I’m having moments of feeling my own energy something that can get lost in the interactions. We spend a lot of time talking, but it’s withjn the silence of a shared space it can bring you closer to your own connection as it is alone or together shared.

Yes, I explain it to people like this, "Consider that the reiki practitioner is like the cord and plug to the universal energy and the reciever of reiki is like the lamp."
