What is Reiki, and How Can it Help You?

ReikiYou know how people talk about energy leaving the body, or how negative energy can actually be taken into your body to cause problems?  Reiki is known to be a healing technique that originated in Japan and is based on the concept of what is essentially a healing touch.  Reiki is about energy flowing from the healer’s hands into the patient’s or client’s body to help “charge” problem areas with positive energy.

The important thing to know about Reiki is that it’s not a religion.  It’s not a specific dogma or anything that’s required for any specific religion, so people of all religions, beliefs, and spiritualties can reap the benefits of its healing.

Reiki brings with it many benefits that are both physically and mentally healing.  Mental health is just as important as physical health, and reiki’s benefits should be considered when deciding whether to give it a shot.

  1. Stress Reduction and Relaxation – Reiki works to restore the body’s energy balance and replace negative, harmful energy with positive energy. Because of this, stress reduction and relaxation are some of its biggest benefits.  This is important for the body because stress is incredibly harmful to the body’s immune system (causing you to get sick more often) and energy level.
  2. Aids in Sleep – Reducing stress and harmful negative energy in the body helps create a better environment for sleep at night. You know on nights after a stressful Sleepday when you finally get into bed and can’t sleep because your mind is reeling?  Or you’re constantly tossing, turning, and waking up?  Reiki helps eliminate those issues by calming and relaxing the body.
  3. Reduces Pain – Reiki also helps the body physically by helping to relieve pain from migraine, arthritis, sciatica, and many other physical ailments. It also helps with symptoms of asthma, chronic fatigue, menopausal symptoms, and insomnia. People who receive Reiki treatments for these issues report amazing results.
  4. Speeds up Recovery – As anyone who has ever had surgery or a long-term illness would know, it can be a long process. Reiki speeds up this process.  It’s been reported to reduce the side effects that come with surgery recovery and medications, including Chemo Therapy side effects.

One reason many people are fans of Reiki is because it doesn’t require much of a physical touch.  For people who are uncomfortable getting massages, Reiki can have many similar benefits on the body.

Reiki is something that many people aren’t familiar with, and sometimes people are uncomfortable with things they don’t fully understand.  Now that the basics of it and the benefits have been explained, why not give it a try?
