It’s time to talk about Reiki. Whatever you think you know about Reiki, prepare to open your minds – this is a brilliantly versatile treatment that will benefit you in more ways than you might think. Read on to learn about Reiki and how it may be a welcome addition to your lifestyle.
What is Reiki and how does it work?
There’s no better place to start than at the beginning. Reiki is an alternative therapy that works by using light touch to help the body self-heal. It can work to improve your energy levels and promote clarity of mind too. It’s an ideal way to combat stress, particularly useful in this day and age where we can all struggle with juggling our busy lives.
One of the best things about Reiki is that it can benefit everyone – no matter what your age or how healthy you are, this treatment is for you. We can’t think of many other treatments that can have such far-reaching effects on so many people…can you?
The science of Reiki
So how does it actually work? Our bodies have two ‘versions’ of the nervous system – the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS). Each has a role to play within the body. The SNS is what carries out our flight and fight response, and so needs to be active and ready to go at any point. On the other hand the PNS is where our bodies can rest and recover, making this system responsible for healing.
Reiki can help the PNS be the overriding system within our bodies. This allows us to rest, restore, and you guessed it…to heal too. With so many benefits of Reiki, we’re here to show you how this complementary therapy could enhance your lifestyle.
Reiki, energy and creativity
We all seem to be so busy nowadays, with technology making it increasingly difficult for us to take time out and clear our minds. Our lifestyles can mean we feel like we’re lurching from task to task, without really taking any time for ourselves. We’ve all experienced that feeling where you just can’t seem to get inspired, or you have a lack of energy that makes you feel slow or sluggish. Did you know that Reiki could be just what you need to get those creative juices flowing and allow inspiration to hit?
A clear and focused mind can aid with creativity, and this is where Reiki can help. Reiki can help to remove energy blocks, promote energy flow and increase energy levels too. These benefits can then help you to focus and kickstart your creativity – the perfect solution to these ever demanding times!
Reiki and medical treatment
The many advantages of Reiki treatment are being recognised all the time. Some NHS hospitals are even offering Reiki treatment now. Whilst Reiki is a complementary treatment that can work independently, it can also work alongside illnesses treated with conventional medicine to help with certain conditions. Asthma, epilepsy, diabetes, high blood pressure and even some cancer treatments could be complemented with Reiki therapy. The same can be said with mental health conditions including anxiety and depression. Whilst we always recommend taking the advice of your doctor when it comes to medication and treatment, Reiki can help you manage any side effects that you may experience from conventional medicine.
This could mean that a combination of. both complementary and medical treatment could offer a complete holistic healing approach for the patient in question. Symptoms and conditions can both be targeted, with the body encouraged to heal from within.
