Anxiety 101: The Positive Function of Reiki and Kinesiology

Kinesiology is an effective treatment method that employs holistic health disciplines using an indicator muscle to monitor the subconscious mind and the whole body health. It is a promotion discipline that combines Western and Eastern approaches, and is considered a treatment method using the body's natural energy to heal anxiety and stress.

Stress and anxiety are common among Australians of all ages, according to the 2014 Stress and Wellbeing in Australia Survey. Untreated stress can have a negative impact on one's quality of life. Stress and anxiety can also lead to depression and immune-related illnesses.

Read on to discover the positive function of Reiki and Kinesiology in dealing with anxiety.

Understanding and Coping with Stress and Anxiety

Anxiety and stress are considered "less severe" mental illnesses than OCD. Negative consequences should not be overlooked. Stress affects the majority of Westerners, regardless of age or gender.

Stress and anxiety can be caused by long work hours and a hectic personal schedule. Anxiety and stress are sometimes inherited. The only viable option appears to be work-life balance. In practice, it is challenging.

Stress and anxiety both cause muscle discomfort. Stress and anxiety are the root causes of insomnia, immune disorders, and other illnesses.

Kinesiology Heals the Entire Body from Within

Kinesiology takes into account physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.

Today, millions of people worldwide suffer from generalised anxiety disorder (GAD). According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, 3.1% of Americans suffer from GAD. GAD is commonly treated with medication and therapy. Reiki is used by some people with this condition to help them feel better.

Learning about GAD

GAD patients are overly concerned about their loved ones, health, and finances. This anxiety is uncontrollable. People suffering from this condition frequently experience a sense of impending doom for no apparent reason. This disorder typically manifests slowly. It is more common in women and peaks during childhood. Although many people can manage their symptoms and live a normal life, severe anxiety can make daily tasks and social interactions difficult.

Usually, GAD is diagnosed after six months of consistent symptoms. Generalised anxiety disorder symptoms include difficulty sleeping, tense muscles, irritability, fatigue, restlessness, and difficulty concentrating.

GAD can be treated with tricyclic antidepressants, benzodiazepines, serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors, or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Interpersonal therapy, exposure therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy are all options.

Knowing about Reiki

Reiki was developed by Japanese physicians. This technique is based on the theory that disruptions or blockages in an individual's energy pathways can result in physical issues such as anxiety. Reiki promotes healing by unblocking energy and restoring normal flow.

Reiki practitioners gently place their hands on or above the client. The practitioner then repeats the process with different hand positions. The length of the session is determined by the client.

GAD and Reiki

Reiki, according to research, may benefit those suffering from GAD. They are as follows:

  • Genuine Relaxation

GAD patients have high levels of stress. Reiki may help reduce stress, according to research and anecdotal evidence. Even without a stressor, GAD makes it difficult to relax. Many Reiki practitioners report feeling relaxed during and after their sessions, which may be beneficial for those who suffer from anxiety.

  • Increased Happiness

Not everyone who has GAD suffers from depression. These issues are intertwined for many people. Regular Reiki therapy, according to research, reduces depressive symptoms.

  • Improved Slumber

People suffering from GAD may have difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep or waking up feeling tired. Reiki may help with these issues and improve sleep quality.

Reiki is non-invasive and completely safe. Reiki can be used in conjunction with prescription medications and other therapies.


The fascinating thing about Reiki and Kinesiology is that they are holistic healing practices that don’t require medication. Indeed, it’s all about healing ourselves from within and from our state of mind. It is a complementary therapy that works alongside western medicine and we do not recommend stopping any medications prescribed without consulting a doctor. Try these therapies out for yourself and see the wonders they could give you today.
