Most people carry their stress physically and have learnt how to function with it. Until they reach that point where they feel stuck or a burn-out and finally decide they need help. I used to be that person; I would push myself until there was nothing left. I was unkind to my body and eventually, I realised that I needed to do better and care for my vessel.
The word spiritual always rambles minds and tables. The first thing that comes to mind is a group of people holding hands singing chants and praising the moon. This picture always leaves me rolling on the floor with laughter. Spirituality, just like wellness, is subjective. However, the end goal is doing what keeps you balanced, happy, peaceful, and able to handle the stresses life has to offer.
In today’s journey, I get to talk about something that is not only dear to my heart because of the soulful healing and energy release it has brought to my life but because I truly believe that it is through knowledge that we gain a sense of wellness and well-being.
As your personally appointed guide, I am doing things differently today. Opening your mind and heart to the world of Reiki and where to find it.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a form of energy healing, which originated in Japan in the early 20th century. According to the International Centre for Reiki Training, the word ‘Reiki’ is a combination of two Japanese words, namely ‘Rei’ meaning ‘God’s wisdom’ or ‘the higher power’ and ‘ki’ which means ‘life force energy’.
The practice is based on the idea that we all have an unseen ‘life force energy’ flowing through our bodies. Reiki has also been linked to a range of physical and emotional health benefits, which have been published. These benefits include better sleep, improved mood, and pain relief. Research has also suggested that Reiki helps the body return to a state of relaxation and tranquillity, allowing the body to better heal itself from damage.
How Does Reiki Work?
Reiki therapy is a way of guiding energy throughout the body to promote the person’s self-healing abilities as stated above. In short, a Reiki practitioner gently moves her/his hands just above or on a client’s clothed body, with the intention of encouraging a healthy flow of energy and healing.
According to the National Centre for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), the Reiki belief system is that the practitioner is not the one that causes the healing nor are they the source of the healing energy but a channel for the energy.
To wrap it up simply, the Reiki practitioner raises his/her hands above the body and lets the body’s energy speak to him/her creating a motion. This can be done physically or remotely as well.
What are the Benefits of Reiki?
Reiki helps with a variety of physical and emotional problems like insomnia, depression, anxiety, and pain. In a study published in 2017 on patients undergoing knee replacement surgery, researchers found that some patients who had been receiving Reiki treatments had a significant reduction in pain, blood pressure, breathing rate and anxiety.
Reiki has also been shown to improve mood and study, according to another study that was conducted. The main benefit of Reiki according to Pamela Miles, a New York City-based Reiki master and researcher, is the reduction of stress. Our bodies struggle to heal when they are under a state of stress all the time.
Reiki helps in distributing the energy flow into various parts of your body and helps you release old energy that tends to make you feel stagnant.
What to Expect at Your First Reiki Session
Every Reiki session varies in length. Most of them last between 60 and 90 minutes or longer, depending on what the practitioner says or how long the entire session lasts. You will spend the entire session lying fat fully clothed on a treatment table.
Try to wear something loose and comfortable to help you settle in. For any extra information, you can ask the practitioner and they will give you further instructions.
