Know These before Booking Reiki Healing for Chronic Pain

Reiki is an alternative medicine that is said to promote healing. This method is based on the idea that our bodies have an unseen life force, or energy, that flows through and keeps us alive and healthy. When this life force energy is low, we are likelier to get sick or experience pain. Reiki healing is said to help increase the life force energy in our bodies, which can help heal us.

This East Asian technique was first brought to the West in the late 1930s by Mrs Hawayo Takata, also known as Takata Sensei. Reiki healing is a gentle, hands-on approach that does not require using any medical tools or instruments. The Reiki practitioner simply places their hands on the patient's body (or slightly off the body), intending to come from the heart.

Since it is a natural and gentle method, Reiki does not carry safety risks associated with other forms of treatment. This is one of the various reasons why patients suffering from chronic pain often seek Reiki as an ideal supplement or enhancement to traditional methods of managing pain and other health issues.

Its Inner Workings

When a Reiki practitioner places their hands on a person, they act as a conduit for this energy, channelling it to where the person needs it most. This can help to promote relaxation, stress relief, and comfort.

A professional Reiki session is typically conducted in a serene and private environment with minimal distractions so that you can fully relax. Your practitioner will likely ask you why you're seeking Reiki and your goals for the session to establish an intention for the session that meets your specific needs. Reiki sessions usually last from 60 to 90 minutes.

The patient starts by lying on a comfortable treatment table, and the practitioner will use various hand positions on the body or a few centimetres above. The practitioner may play soft music or diffuse essential oils during the treatment.

To get the most out of the Reiki healing session, you should wear comfortable clothing and let your practitioner know about any concerns, questions, or preferences you have. Your practitioner will probably be quiet during most sessions, but you can talk or ask questions. Patients tend to fall asleep during the treatment because they feel so comfortable, which is perfectly fine. Sleeping may be a great way for the body to start healing.

Some scientific evidence supports the idea that Reiki can help with pain relief. One study found that Reiki could significantly reduce pain in people suffering from chronic pain conditions like fibromyalgia. Another study found that Reiki could reduce pain and improve the quality of life in people undergoing cancer treatment.

One Last Thing

People experience pain differently, so different treatment methods work for different people. Do consider Reiki, as it can complement other pain management methods, such as medications, physical therapy, and massage.

If you are interested in trying Reiki healing for chronic pain relief, it is important to find a qualified practitioner. While considered safe for most people, it is always best to check with your doctor before ensuring it's right for you.
