The Surprising Benefits of Reiki
When you think about reiki, you probably envision someone with their hands floating over another person's body. While that is an accurate visual, there's a lot more to it than that. Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Reiki practitioners claim that this ancient practice can treat illnesses from post-traumatic stress disorder to cancer, but is there any truth to the claims? With such varied health benefits, one of the most important questions about reiki is whether or not it works. The answer may surprise you!
Reiki has proven to reduce patient anxiety, discomfort, pain, nausea, and fatigue during medical procedures like open-heart surgery. In addition, some studies show that women with breast cancer who received reiki therapy had better outcomes after surgery than those who did not receive it. What's more? One study showed that people with fibromyalgia were less fatigued after a 20-minute reiki session than they were before it began.
Let's take a look at a few of the benefits of Reiki listed below, and keep yourself energized with positive energy and a positive mindset.
- Destroys Energy Blocks
Reiki therapy raises one's awareness, allowing them to become more aware of the issues that appear to be swindling them of their peace and joy. It can aid in the removal of energy blocks such as negative thoughts in order to bring about peace.
- Promotes equilibrium and harmony
Reiki can be an effective tool for restoring your body's balance on all levels, including mental, emotional, and physical so that all body parts function in perfect harmony. When a body works in harmony, it enhances its natural healing abilities, which improves overall health and wellness.
- Emotional trauma from the past is released.
Reiki takes stress reduction a step further by assisting your body in releasing emotional baggage that may be stored in various parts of the body or energy centers.
- Inflammation and infection are treated.
Reiki-charged water can be an excellent natural treatment for inflammations and infections. Many diseases can be caused by stress. Reiki not only relieves stress but also boosts the immune system's ability to fight infections.
- Relationship Enhancement
Reiki can also assist you in your spiritual development and personality development journey. You begin to see situations and behaviours in a new light. With regular practice, misunderstandings with family members fade away, or you become more tolerant.
Reiki is based on the idea that the energy channels in our bodies can be blocked, which can cause illness or other problems. The word "reiki" itself translates to "spiritually guided life force energy," and practitioners use their hands to transmit this life force to their patients. Because Reiki is a way for practitioners to channel life force energy into patients (rather than simply trying to treat symptoms with medication), it can be used to treat a number of different illnesses- it doesn't have side effects like many prescription drugs do, so it's useful for treating everything from stress and depression to chronic pain or cancer. For example, a patient with anxiety could go to a reiki practitioner who would help them get rid of their anxiety by clearing out any blocked energy in their body.
