Reiki is a way of tuning in to universal energy that can assist with the flow of our own subtle energy in the body. This energy is the same that is targeted in acupuncture or worked with in disciplines such as yoga or tai chi.
Everything in the universe is made of energy – you, me, animals, plants, the physical objects around us, thoughts and emotions. Therefore everything we come into contact with can affect us via its energy field and this can be in a positive way – such as when we feel happier after a walk outdoors in nature. Energy can also affect us in a negative way, other people’s demands and emotions can have lasting effects on us, our own thoughts and emotions can become wearing, depressing and even begin to affect our bodies with physical symptoms.
It’s often, therefore, helpful to turn to reiki for emotional difficulties, anxiety, situations where negative thoughts and worries are troubling you. I have treated clients who have found reiki has helped with the following areas:
- Difficulty overcoming negative thoughts and feelings
- Some physical symptoms that may have an emotional element such as headaches, neuralgia and digestive problems
As always I am happy to discuss whether reiki might be the right treatment for you.
