Reiki has been associated with many physical and emotional healing benefits including pain relief, lower blood pressure, better mood, emotional release, relaxation, anxiety relief ~ it’s even being used in medical facilities such as hospitals and long-term care facilities
The biggest benefit of Reiki energy on our human bodies is that it promotes deep relaxation. As I like to say: “You Heal Best When You Rest” and it’s true! When you let the external world fall away for a time, your body can use it’s own universal life energy to heal any dis-ease within; complement this with receiving Reiki from a practitioner and your body accelerates its own natural healing capacities.
As a caregiver, you give a lot ~ a lot of love, time and energy. I know why you do this, because I do it too. I know it's a labor of love, being responsible for the one you care for; sometimes with little reward (but you wouldn't have it any other way).
Some days you just want to rest, you want a reprieve; you are drained... but you keep going. You take care of All The Things.
We all know the adage by now "put the oxygen mask on yourself first" and there's a reason for that. When we have what we need, we are healthier and better able to care for others. But how often do we actually do this?
Reiki is a peaceful, restful, restorative, relaxation modality that emerged from Japanese culture. Reiki is literally "energy from the universe." Everything is made of energy (yes, human beings are made of energy; we are energy bodies) - but sometimes that energy gets depleted.
Stress, noise, conflict (near or far), dis-ease, obligation, responsibilities, environmental factors, and other people can affect our energy levels.
