"The process of attunement is what sets Reiki apart from every other laying on of hands or touch healing. The attunement is not a treatment, it creates the healer. From this point on, the person who has received the attunement is a Reiki practitioner." Diane Stein, author "Essential Reiki"
Attunements, initiations or Placements must be performed in person to be fully effective - not over the internet! The UK Reiki Federation does not achnowledge initiaions Not performed in person.
