Using the Jō symbol:

First, perform a 'general' treatment (at least, cover: the head, upper back, spine, and
abdomen) then, when ready, draw the symbol over the liver area.

While drawing the symbol, repeat the jumon-phrase "O-hikari", twice.

Then place your hands - right hand on top of the left - over the liver area, and let
Reiki flow for as long as you feel appropriate.

Finally, treat the kidneys for a few minutes.

That's it!

So, in order to use the symbol, do you need to receive initiation/attunement for

Strange as it may seem, the majority of practitioners find that they do not actually
need to be 'attuned' to the symbol (at least not in any formal sense).

popular modern-day forms of “Japanese” Reiki.
Instead of the familiar CKR, a few modern Japanese styles teach a symbol with a visual form
similar to that of the Jō symbol.
However, it must be stressed that it is solely the visual form of their symbol which shares
similarities with the Jō symbol.
Their symbol names, significance and function, etc. are quite different.
