If you're dealing with someone trying to hit on you, an exhibitionist, or a pervert, it's nothing personal and not anything you caused. The guy is just relaxing, and Reiki is especially relaxing. Ignore it and casually place a towel or blanket over him. If you choose to acknowledge it, don't make a big deal out of it and above all don't assume you're the cause of it, unless he indicates otherwise, in which case, clearly state your boundaries. Working in a private practice is a whole other situation where clear boundaries for yourself of what you will or will not do are absolutely essential. Starting out with referrals only or working only with women, who often refer husbands and significant others, provides a layer of confidence in your personal safety. Screen your patient calls over the phone before setting an appointment. If it doesn't feel right, refer them elsewhere. That's the benefit of private practice...you can refuse treatment. I've worked with rehab patients in hospital and in private practice, manual therapy, hands-on just about everywhere and rarely does the problem come up unless I use a modality that evokes relaxation. A friend once told me she just hits it with a fly swatter, joking of course. Sorry, no advice for your situation with the horse.
