Reduce Anxiety with Reiki
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a hands-on healing technique from Japan and signifies "transcendent life force" or "spiritual energy." Reiki's practice guides this "Ki" or "Chi", an energy that surrounds and permeates every living thing. It seeks to unblock energy and restore normal flow to support the body's ability to heal itself, enabling you to take an active role in your health.
What Happens During a Reiki Session?
As each person experiences anxiety differently, it is essential that a practitioner spend a few minutes with their clients to go about ways that can best support them. This is because a significant aspect of treatment is understanding a client's personal triggers and areas of concern to the body. A client will then proceed to lie entirely clothed on a massage table. A trained practitioner will gently place his or her hands on or above the client channelling the Ki through the client's body. This process will be repeated multiple times by the practitioner using several hand positions. The length of the session varies depending on the client's needs.
How does Reiki help people with anxiety? Here are a few ways:
Lower Stress Levels
A significant problem for people suffering from anxiety is that they feel stressed out about their inability to do all they need. Often times, they are focused on what needs to be done outside of themselves. However, you can't help others until you've allowed yourself. The timeout you take to enjoy a Reiki treatment is the time you take to do something just for you. Reiki helps to alleviate some of this stress.
Reiki is done in a restful and relaxing environment. Individuals suffering from anxiety need a tranquil space to calm down. It is challenging to have an area free from disturbance. A practitioner helps create this peaceful space. Reiki also brings you a beneficial shift in your attention, assist your body from tension, and aids to balance your mental and emotional state.
Several studies have shown that Reiki can help you get rid of mood swings. The purpose of Reiki is to redirect the flow of energy in the body to heal you. It brings positive energy and inner peace that helps reduce anxiety, anger and confusion.
