Reiki is a gentle, hands on healing technique that has been used for many years to reduce stress and achieve body and mind relaxation, reduce pain, anxiety, reduce side effects of medications, and support recovery after injuries or surgery.
Receiving Reiki can help you become more calm and peaceful under stressful situations. The emotional benefits of Reiki include: being more positive, increased self-awareness, and living more in the present. Reiki helps us to see others more lovingly and to bring more compassion both toward ourselves and others.
Reiki may also be useful for medical conditions that are worsened by stress.
Some research suggests that stress reduction may help people manage symptoms of such conditions as: anxiety, post traumatic stress, depression, chronic pain, migraine headaches, sleep problems, addictions, and high blood pressure.
The reason why Reiki helps to heal so many conditions is that Reiki main’s function is to restore balance of the mind, body, and spirit. Our body has a natural ability to heal itself. By boosting the body with universal life energy, we tap into our natural ability to heal ourselves.
Note: Reiki is not intended to take the place of a doctor's care. One should always listen to the body's wisdom, and consult a doctor regarding serious health concerns.
