  • Jan 28 , 2017

Reiki is the spiritual and vibrational healing process used to promote balance within the human system. It does not involve the ingestion or physical manipulation or application of any substances but works with the slight vibrational field thought to penetrate the body. You can get Reiki healing done by a trained professional, or you can learn it as a wellness practice.

Uses of Reiki

People use Reiki to enhance well-being, reduce anxiety, pain and tiredness. It also helps in reducing side-effects of medications and also aids in recovery after surgery or injuries. Reiki is a safe interactive therapy to try as people typically feel better quickly. Pain is lessened and people feel hopeful in regaining their health. Reiki therapy often clears the mind and enables patients to evaluate conflicting medical information being offered by experts, so that they can make vital decisions with greater confidence.

Where can you receive Reiki?

A quiet setting where you are not disturbed is always preferable. Professional Reiki practitioners have a proper space. They usually play soft composition throughout the session to let you make relax. The patients who receive Reiki in a nursing home, hospital or any other healthcare setup can have a shorter session, while some of the private practitioners give you 90 minutes sessions.

Number of sessions you should receive

Your health care provider may suggest you a series of sittings. In general four sessions are recommended and gives you time to observe the benefits of Reiki healing.
