What is Reiki?
Reiki is a traditional Japanese form of energy healing that involves the laying of hands to guide and increase your life force energy for optimized wellness. The word “reiki” is a combination of the Japanese words, “rei,” meaning God’s wisdom, and “ki,” meaning a type of life force energy. When combined into Reiki, it translates into spiritually guided life force energy.
Reiki is a holistic practice that improves your emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. Taking a functional medicine approach, Reiki is often combined with other therapies like meditation, body work, and nutritional supplements to relieve symptoms and promote recovery.
What happens during Reiki sessions?
Your session is completed in an environment that is warm, welcoming, and designed to enhance relaxation. There’s no need to remove your clothing, although if you’re wearing a medical brace or other supportive device it might be briefly removed to facilitate treatment.
Therapy includes light touching that’s never invasive. Your practitioner will move through a series of hands-on techniques, none of which involve any significant degree of pressure. The experience has been compared to the movements of a massage, but without the pressure or muscle stimulation upon which massage therapy relies.
How will I react to Reiki treatment?
Everyone reacts differently, but most men and women who try Reiki report a sensation of deep relaxation, both before and after their sessions. You might feel sleepy, and it’s perfectly acceptable to nod off during your session.
You might also experience a subtle pulsation in the areas of focus, or warming or cooling sensations. It’s possible to note an immediate cessation of symptoms, but it’s also possible to find the experience completely unremarkable, only to notice improvement in symptoms in the hours and days after your session.
Can Reiki help treat headaches?
Reiki is a good treatment option for headaches, and offers a therapeutic path that doesn’t require pharmaceuticals or invasive procedures. If you’ve tried other treatments but haven’t found relief from headaches, you may want to explore Reiki as an alternative treatment approach.
