Reiki is a holistic energy healing technique, which means that it works on all levels of an individual’s being. A Reiki practitioner channels life force energy through his or her hands unto another person. This healing energy can influence an individual physically, emotionally, and even spiritually and so its healing benefits can be experienced on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels. Some of the wonderful Reiki benefits are:
Promotes physical healing: Many people have benefited from Reiki’s physical healing effects on their body. Though still not proven by medical science, there are reports of improvement/healing, through Reiki, of chronic diseases like cancer, diabetes, hypertension, vertigo, arthritis, and migraine, etc. Reiki also helps in breaking addictions and relieving insomnia. It also provides relief in cases of injuries, allergies, and other illnesses.
Promotes emotional and spiritual healing: The relaxing nature of Reiki can be very helpful to people especially during difficult times in life because Reiki benefits mind. Sometimes individuals feel a real sense of isolation, both emotionally and spiritually and can feel overwhelmed or disconnected. Reiki treatments can bring sense of peace and centeredness, and enhance ability to cope better with the challenges of life. Reiki can be beneficial not only in critical circumstances that are short term, but can also support people dealing with long-standing conditions by bringing comfort, acceptance, and a more positive outlook in them.
Aids the body release stress: As Reiki treatment permits people to have time to themselves by not doing anything but relaxing, it makes them feel calm and stress-free. Reiki makes them become more aware of what is going on inside their body and mind, and helps them learn how to make better decisions about what is actually required for their well being. When people realize what really matters, they feel the stress leaving their body.
Cleanses body of toxins and supports the immune system: Reiki helps our body to shift to parasympathetic nervous system, or self-healing mode. It allows better sleep and digestion, which is important to maintain health, remove toxins from the body and support immune system. The more one remains in the self-healing mode, the more active and productive one can be, without getting tired and stressed.
Helps in wish manifestation: Reiki can also help in manifestations of wishes, which will lead to a happier, stress-free life. Reiki works in conjunction with positive-thought reinforcement, and can help one find a compatible life-partner, new job/position, financial abundance, etc.
Supportive during pregnancy: Reiki is also supportive during pregnancy and can have a significantly positive effect on pregnant women. Treatments can be very relaxing and enjoyable for the prospective mother. By removing the blocks/disruptions at the sacral chakra (orange), Reiki can provide the Ki required to the womb which might help in easy pregnancy and childbirth.
Improves concentration among children: Children usually love Reiki. Children’s blocks are not as rigid as adults, and remain in developing state and since their minds are more open, they are usually more open to the healing effects of Reiki too. Reiki can also help children develop better concentration and retention ability for studies and removes stress during exams.
Boosts body’s self-healing ability: Reiki treatment enhances body’s self-healing ability and thus helps in returning the body to its natural state. As deep breathing is one of the main activities in Reiki treatment and practice, it naturally settles the mind. It also leads to further improvement in breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure. Deeper respiration moves the body from fight/flight stressful phase into parasympathetic nervous system dominance or the rest/digest phase which is beneficial for the body because human body functions best in the rest/digest phase instead of fight/flight phase.
The best thing about Reiki is that in order to experience its advantages, one does not need to be sick. Reiki, unlike many other present day therapies, works directly on restoring the balance in human body on all levels and acts directly on the issue and condition instead of just masking or relieving the symptoms.
