Health benefits of Reiki

Reiki helps the body to reach an inner state of harmony on all levels, physically, mentally and spiritually. As well as helping many physical ailments, it can also promote the changing of any negative mental habits, turning these into more positive and productive thought patterns. Reiki energy is gentle to receive, yet a powerful form of healing and the benefits can be felt immediately on all levels.

Stress Reduction

Treatments with Reiki energy reduce stress within the body, thereby inducing a state of relaxation. The body can then be allowed to begin the healing process. While stress is not considered an illness, most people have experienced it. When stress is being felt for a prolonged period of time, then the body can begin to be affected both physically and mentally, as it weakens the immune system. In the UK alone, the Health & Safety Executive report that an estimated half million people experience stress at a level that makes them ill and unable to work. In addition, to this, hundreds of thousands of people are now taking anti-depressants to allow them to cope with life. However, Reiki can and does help with stress reduction, which has the added benefit of boosting the immune system.

Cleanses Body of Toxins and Supports Immune System

Reiki technique is used to remind our bodies how to go back into the “repair” or “self-healing” state of rest and digest. By triggering this state, our bodies begin to cleanse themselves of useless energies. It also allows the body to protect itself from exhaustion, burnout, or immune system failure.

Helps Spiritual Growth and Emotional Cleansing

Reiki addresses the whole person—mind, body, and spirit—not just the physical being. This means that the positive energy transfer through Reiki is extremely helpful in elevating the receiver’s mood and general attitude towards life. The healing that starts from within will reflect on their decisions and perspective on the outside.

Breaks Down Energy Blocks and Balances The Mind, Body, and Spirit

Regular Reiki treatment promotes the consistent and unlocked flow of energy throughout the body. This allows people to feel less stress, enhances learning and memory, promotes mental clarity, and physical healing/ less physical pain. When energy passageways are blocked, positive energy cannot flow to certain parts of the body, which results in mood swings, fear, anger, pain, and more. Reiki can help keep these passages clear.

Clears the mind and improves focus as you feel grounded & centred

Reiki can support you in staying centered in the present moment rather than getting caught up in regrets about the past or anxieties about the future. It can strengthen your ability to accept and work with the way events are unfolding even when they don’t follow your desires or timetable. You begin to react to situations, people and yourself in a supportive way rather than acting our of habit.

Dissolves energy blocks and promotes natural balance between mind, body and spirit

Regular Reiki treatments can bring about a calmer and more peaceful state of being, in which a person is better able to cope with everyday stress. This mental balance also enhances learning, memory and mental clarity.

Reiki can heal mental/emotional wounds and can help alleviate mood swings, fear, frustration and even anger. Reiki can also strengthen and heal personal relationships.

Because Reiki enhances your capability to love, it can open you up to the people around you and help your relationships grow.

Assists the body in cleansing itself from toxins and supports the immune system

We spend so much time in stress-reactive fight/flight phase that it becomes our ‘norm’ and our bodies literally forget how to return to balance.

Reiki reminds our bodies how to shift into parasympathetic nervous system (rest / digest) self-healing mode.

Rest/digest doesn’t mean you have to stop being active and productive or ‘do nothing’. It allows you to sleep better and digest better which is important to maintaining health and vitality. The more you are in this space, the more you can be active and productive without being stressed, exhausted or burntout.

Note: There are no guarantees of being able to cure you completely using Reiki, although there are countless cases where this has occurred. Whatever you may wish to have treatment for, Reiki will definitely help in some way, on so many levels. Once improvements have been noticed, it may also be time to look at ways of helping yourself to remain in this improved state e.g. Changing old negative ways of thinking, improving ways of dealing with stress, improving your diet, getting more exercise and so on.
