Can Reiki Help Reduce Stress?

Stress is a common part of everyday life for many people and while some stress is actually beneficial, too much for too long can actually start to cause serious problems. If you are stressed, you'll need to de-stress and one therapy that can really help is Reiki. Read on to learn more.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a healing technique that works on all levels. A treatment session is usually done in person with the practitioner performing gentle hands on healing techniques or sometimes hovering the hands over the body in order to strengthen the person's life force and remove blockages. The aim is to have the life force or Ki (also known as chi or qi) flowing strongly and freely throughout the body. Reiki can also be performed over distance and the practitioner will generally conduct a phone or email conversation with the client in order to discuss the session and its effects.

Reiki can be used as a standalone treatment or it can be used in conjunction with other complementary therapies or orthodox medicine.

How Reiki Can Help With Stress

The healing powers of Reiki are extremely profound and they work on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels. Reiki is extremely effective for physical issues but it is also just as effective for emotional issues such as stress. This is because it heals you on the emotional level, teaching you how to relax. Reiki treatments also completely relax you, and it is this utter relaxation that helps to reduce and eliminate stress from your life.

Reiki also helps to heal the past emotional traumas that you have suffered and have repressed. This is important as these traumas have a negative effect on you, preventing your self development and making you feel as if you cannot be yourself. Once these traumas are healed and you feel as though you can be yourself again, you will become much better able to cope with the situations around you, thus reducing your stress. Essentially you will be able to see the bigger picture and realise that the things that you thought mattered really didn't matter at all. Reiki will also help you to stay away from situations that can be harmful to you, which are generally stressful situations by nature.
