a community of practitioners
I am not aware of this with Reiki male practitioners. I feel that a person looking for someone to do energy work or massage will go to someone that is compatible with their energy, whether they are realizing that or not. It's been my experience that more women are in the energy field then men at this time, but I feel that this is changing. Possibly having a female Reiki practitioner may feel more comfortable for them at this time, since that is what is familiar and what they are used to. I teach a subtle body energy class and the males that are into doing energy work don't seem to have any more problems then the females as far as working on someone.
