Don’t worry if you haven’t heard of it. Here is a brief overview of the Reiki practice. Let’s have a look at the details of this hands-on healing technique.
Reiki is a traditional healing technique from Japan, stating “spiritual energy” or “transcendent life force.” It is combined of two Japanese words – ‘Rei’ and ‘Ki,’ which means the transfer of energy surrounding every living thing. The healing art improves the overall wellness of a living person. It allows you to take an active role in your health.
People currently are dealing with severe anxiety and depression due to the effects of the COVID-19 lockdown. It is the top reason people are looking for ways to treat themselves with a less medicinal intake.
Patients with anxiety are sensitive and are most likely to open their hearts out; it helps them get enhanced Reiki benefits.
What Can One Expect From Reiki Session?
Each Reiki session begins with a few minutes of an interactive session. Each patient has a different experience of stress and anxiety; thus, better insight into the patient’s experience is the core part of the treatment. Reiki master understands personal triggers and the area of the body that needs to heal during the session.
Later the patient is made to lie on the massage table with their clothes on. The Reiki master places their hands on or above the body parts that need to be healed. Hands act as the channel for the life force energy to flow throughout the body and cleanse it.
The Reiki healing response varies from person to person and session to session; however, the common response includes the feeling of peace and relaxation. People get warmth and tingling feeling after each session of Reiki. The body shifts from sympathetic mode to parasympathetic mode, i.e. from flight mode to rest mode.
The Reiki session initiates the body’s self-healing response and helps the body release deep-seated tensions and balance in mental and emotional states. It also brings about an essential shift in your attention. Attention is the one thing which one must focus on if you are feeling anxious.
Once you are done with the session, the person notices a change as their mind and body continue to rebalance over the next few days or weeks. These changes might include physical changes, sleepless deprivation, mental or emotional changes. People tend to feel calmer in stressful conditions and improvement in mental focus post each Reiki session.
If you feel discomfort for the next few days, then it is a good sign. It means that the session has started to help your body to rebalance it. Reiki enables you to balance that needs to put your anxiety level in perspective and let go of it.
How Many Sessions Are Required To Experience Benefits?
Regular practice of Reiki sessions provides body balancing and long-lasting benefits to the patients. However, the result varies from person to person. If you are experiencing anxiety for a long time, you must consider booking at least three sessions of Reiki with a professional Reiki master.
Acute conditions are most likely to get balanced quicker than chronic ones. So if you are experiencing anxiety for a long time, it will take a little more time to release than a newly build anxiety.
Now that you know how you can recover the post-COVID stress, it would be easy for you to balance your life. Take the help of a professional Reiki master to tune your mind and body in the best possible way.
