Recently when I was working out at the gym, I saw the back of a t-shirt that read, “Results Never Lie.” It made me think of the results I have heard discussed by my patients repeatedly in my practice for 22 years. Reiki shows real results for managing chronic pain.
Reiki is an ancient Japanese touch therapy that is similar to massage. A qualified Reiki practitioner can help bring relief to your chronic pain by laying on hands on specific parts of your body or by positioning their hands slightly above your body.
In alternative medicine, Reiki is a treatment in which healing energy is channeled from the practitioner to the patient to enhance energy and reduce stress, pain, and fatigue. Practitioners say that it works by opening up a channel between healer and patient to transfer energy — a Reiki healer restores the body both physically and mentally.
During a Reiki session, muscles are relaxed, and energy flow is unblocked. This helps reduce physical tension and pain. Anxiety and stress also are reduced, helping to unblock and release emotional pain. Although you may not be completely pain-free, you feel relaxed, refreshed, and better able to cope with your condition.
Numerous studies have proven the effectiveness of Reiki. In a recent study from Michigan, researchers found that Reiki helps reduce the intensity of pain in patients, including cancer patients. In other studies, Reiki has shown to relieve pain in a broad spectrum of patients, and Reiki reduced anxiety and depression in patients, too.
Another benefit of Reiki is that it is a non-invasive treatment, and no serious side effects or risks have been identified with Reiki treatments.
If you experience chronic pain or know someone who does, make an appointment with me to find out more about the benefits of Reiki. Experience the healing benefits of Reiki for yourself.
With the start of both public school and University classes, many of our schedules become more structured with the increase of day-to-day activity demands. Even if your schedule is not directly affected by the start of the school year, you undoubtedly notice the traffic patterns changing, and the anticipation of fall and winter is in the air. I think this time of year is more stressful than any other time.
Did you know there is a way to take responsibility for abandoning the unhealthy cycle of stress and negative thinking? Reiki is a non-invasive healing technique that we can all learn.
Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the person’s physical body and energy field. Reiki rebalances the person with positive energy. Reiki raises the vibrations of the energy field in and around the physical body at specific places and organs that carry negative thoughts and feelings, which causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away. In doing so, Reiki clears, straightens, and heals the energy pathways, thus, allowing the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way throughout the energy field and the physical body.

We have all fallen into patterns of stress and negative thinking at times. Did you know that stress and negative thinking patterns affect our physical well being? Take this information into consideration…
The everyday stress we encounter affects our well being. We are alive because life force/innate is flowing through us. Life force/innate nourishes the organs and cells of the body, and it supports the organs in their vital functions. The flow of life force is disrupted by short or long-term stress and illness. Stress and illness cause diminished functioning in one or more of the organs and tissues of our physical selves.
Negative thoughts can literally make us physically ill. The individual life force/innate we all have is responsive to thoughts, feelings and physical well being. It becomes disrupted when we have negative thoughts or feelings about our self and our body. These negative thoughts and feelings cause a disruption in the flow of life force, which diminishes the vital function of the organs and cells of our physical bodies. If this pattern continues, we can become physically ill. Hence, the comment we have all heard: “I have worried myself sick.”
You can be responsible for alleviating stress and negative thinking! Read next week’s blog for ways Reiki can help.
