In recent years, Reiki has been gaining popularity in mainstream healthcare as an effective form of healing therapy. The number of hospitals and health centres now offering Reiki energy healing all over the world, including the UK is on the increase every day, thanks to the testimonials of clients and patients who have benefited from it.
You too can add Reiki to your usual self-care routine, an addition that will boost not just your physical well being, but also mental and emotional.
How does Reiki work?
Reiki is a hands-on energy healing technique that targets and manipulates the energy fields within and outside the body. During a regular Reiki session, the practitioner will channel these energies into the recipient to promote wellness.
Practitioners believe stagnated energy in certain areas of the body are responsible for emotional pain and physical injuries, and the Reiki healing therapy is geared towards removing these blocks and improving the flow of energy to help the body heal itself.
Reiki does not follow a one-styled approach. Practitioners use different methods to administer Reiki. Some perform the therapy by placing their hands just above the body without touching you, there are even cases where distance sessions are performed via Skype.
Combining Reiki with Other Energy Healing Techniques
Reiki is a natural partner to other energy healing techniques. They all focus on the body’s energy fields. Reiki not only aligns well with other chakra-focused practices but also offers you a different method to enhance your well being.
It complements other therapy and healing forms such as acupuncture, Qi Gong, Shiatsu, as well as yoga, meditation, massage, and conventional medicine.
Whether you’re living healthy through dieting, meditation, or fitness, adding Reiki to your routine will yield results you can hardly deny.
How to Incorporate Reiki into Your General Wellness Routine
According to Rekha, a Reiki expert offering Reiki courses and treatments in London, “You can perform Reiki on yourself to relieve stress or anxiety and give yourself a boost during the day, but you have to learn at least the basics of the therapy first.”
However, receiving treatment from a professional practitioner is the easiest way to add Reiki to your routine. It is important you find a practitioner with whom you’re comfortable because Reiki sessions are usually intimate and powerful in nature. You’ll want to feel relaxed and open to get the most benefit.
Other forms of energy healing come with great benefits but there’s more to achieve with Reiki. Take your time to learn how you can harmonise your energy with Reiki and take practical steps in adding it to your general routine.
