10 Benefits of Reiki Healing

Reiki is a Japanese healing practice that was brought to Hawaii in the 1930s by a Japanese-American woman named Hawayo Takata. A Reiki healing session uses a light touch at various points on the body to break down energy blocks. Breaking these blocks encourages the body to return to a state of flow.

Reiki is viewed as a complementary approach to conventional medicine. Here are ten ways in which Reiki can help us in our daily lives.

1. Removes Energy Blocks

This is the cornerstone of a Reiki healing session. Reiki channels energy to return your body's energy level to its natural state.

2. Provides Relief From Stress

The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine published a study by Harvard researchers that found statistically significant improvements in anxiety from a single session.

3. Eases Physical Pain

That same Harvard study that was published in 2019 also noted that Reiki provided relief from pain. Pain and tension go hand in hand. Relieving tension and getting blood flow to the muscles often helps ease localized pain.

4. Promotes Better Sleep

Anxiety from pain or emotional conflict is known to keep us awake at night. Sleep comes easily when the body is relaxed after a healing session.

5. Releases Toxins From the Body

Improving circulation in the bloodstream and organs allows the body’s natural cleansing functions to work at an optimal rate.

6. Promotes Self-Healing

Falling in line with reduced tension and toxins being released, the body is better able to heal itself. Sleep helps too.

7. Boosts Immune System

With better blood flow and the release of toxins, the immune system can function more fully.

8. Improves Focus

Anxiety, stress, a lack of sleep, and pain are all distractions. Once these issues are addressed, it’s easier to focus on any task. Increases in energy and blood flow to the brain will also help to keep attention on the task at hand.

9. Promotes Emotional Balance

As the body’s energy flow is restored to its natural state, a feeling of overall calmness will be felt.

10. Encourages Spiritual Growth

Reiki is not a religion, but the feeling of relief from anxiety will give way to feelings of positivity and gratitude. These emotions often encourage people to take time for self-reflection.

Reiki sessions can be worth their weight in gold as they bring relief from stress and anxiety. As it’s non-invasive and results can be felt after one session, it’s worth giving this complementary health practice a try.
