Do you often feel stressed? Are you under pressure from demands at home or work or both? Do you know that stress is not just a feeling but has very real, physical effects on the body, some of which can be long term?
Stress may be affecting your health without you realizing it. You may think illness is to blame for that nagging headache and fatigue, your frequent insomnia or your reduced productivity at work. However, stress may be the culprit. Stress can affect your body, your thoughts, and feelings and your behavior. When you are under pressure it’s easy to reach for quick fixes: a glass of wine or two, comfort food, or maybe head out for a quick run to try and burn off the feeling of stress.
You may have noticed these things bring temporary relief at best and may, in fact, have a long-term, negative impact on your overall health. Short term fixes do not address stress at a cellular level and will not bring the healing you are looking for. That is where Reiki comes in.
Here are 7 reasons to choose Reiki for stress reduction:
1- Reiki is a natural, gentle way to reduce stress and promote health.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by touch and is based on the idea that "life force energy" flows through us and causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
2- Reiki is common practice in clinics and private practice settings.
Did you know that Reiki is used in many hospitals, hospices, and clinics? There is now sufficient scientific validation of Reiki’s effectiveness in healing body and mind that clinical staff, such as doctors and nurses, are adding Reiki healing to their work.
3- Reiki effectively reduces body stress symptoms such as:
- Muscle tension or pain
- Chest pain
- Change in sex drive
- Stomach upset
- Sleep problems
4- Reiki relieves mental stress symptoms such as:
- Lack of motivation or focus
- Feeling overwhelmed
- Irritability or anger
5- Reiki transforms behaviors of stress, such as
- Sadness or depression
- Angry outbursts
- Overeating or undereating
- Drug or alcohol abuse
- Tobacco use
- Social withdrawal
- Exercising less often
6- Reiki is non-invasive
Quite the opposite, in fact. Reiki is administered by touch. The practitioner gently rests his/her hands over the client’s body so that healing, life-giving energy is released into them.
7- Reiki is for everyone - you deserve it!
You deserve a little time out for some peace and relaxation. You may not suffer from chronic stress, but day to day, everyone experiences it to some degree. Taking time out to do something special for you is simply good self-care that yields positive returns for everyone.
