Reiki is a natural system of healing that focuses on body energy. It is traditionally used to ease emotional, mental and physical ailments. Reiki is a non-invasive healing method that improves your body’s natural healing method while re-energising your body.

This traditional Japanese art of healing aims to harmonise your body’s energy flow by recharging and revitalising your body’s natural drive to heal itself.

The front and the back of the body is treated with light pressure to run energy into the body. The body’s natural energetic homeostasis directs the energy to the sites most in need of repair. The effect of this is often very gentle with sensations of heat, cold or tingling appearing and moving through your body. Every effect is different based on the individual.

Benefits of Reiki

Through gentle touch and sometimes merely the proximity of the healer’s hands to the particular parts of the body, a trained Reiki practitioner can help with:

  • Grief and relationship healing
  • Sleep disturbance and clarity of thought
  • Aids chronic pain recovery
  • Fatigue and physical injuries
  • Coping with chronic conditions
  • Release of built-up anger, tension and stiffness
  •  Anxiety, depression and stress management

how Can Reiki Help After Surgery?

After any surgery usually, you can not do any physically demanding tasks. Reiki Massage is a non-invasive non-manipulative way of re-activating your energy to speed up the healing process. This is done through light touches and gentle pressure that’s why it is ideal for patients undergoing pain management and therapy.

A lot of athletes have undergone reiki treatment at least once or twice after suffering from injury. Not only does it speed up their healing time but also improves their focus and manages depression.

Psychological Stressors

The physiological mechanisms are intended to promote adaptability and functionality in times of survival; an inherent mind-body signal telling us “this is important” “this needs action”.

The second system involved in the stress response is called the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) system (you will note that this is something referred to often when discussing the positive impact of yoga or meditation). In addition to stimulating the sympathetic nervous system (SNS), the hypothalamus releases a hormone called corticotrophin-releasing hormone (CRH). Cortisol is a good hormone to have around in an emergency. It prepares the body for fight or flight. It also inhibits the innate immune response.

Meditation to Fight Stress

Meditation has long been thought to be spiritually beneficial. But recent scientific studies have proven the physical and physiological benefits of constant meditation. In fact, the range of positive effects of meditation is far-reaching and we only now fully understand its benefits as meditation goes mainstream.

Constant meditation, as proven by numerous scientific studies, has helped rewired the brain. It allowed the brain and the body to receive a greater number of stressors but continually maintain a calm and peaceful state. It helped improve focus and memory retention.
