Reiki Healing for Chronic Pain

If you suffer from chronic pain and are open to trying new modalities in the name of feeling better, Reiki may be a great option. In a Reiki session, the practitioner will lightly lay his/her hands on the client and help the flow of energy move more freely throughout the body.

I know it sounds fluffy but a recent study of the International Journal of Behavioral Medicine reviewed 66 clinical trials on biofield therapies, and concluded that there was strong evidence that these therapies minimized the intensity of pain for hospitalized patients and those with cancer. An additional review of 24 studies, touch therapies were found to reduce pain and that Reiki stood out as the most successful energetic technique involved. (Julie Kusiak)

Reiki can also be extremely beneficial for those healing from invasive surgeries or traumatic experiences that have left some lingering symptoms. The peace and comfort that come from a Reiki session can have lingering effects and can help support a life with less pain and less limitation from such pain.

Benefits of Reiki at the End of Life

Reiki is beneficial throughout life but also at this pivotal transition between life and death. 

Reiki reduces the anxiety and fear that can be associated with growing older or with a terminal diagnosis. This energy work can minimize the side effects of medications and medical procedures and promote an overall relaxation. Whether at home or in a facility the love and peace that Reiki inspires envelop a dying person and his/her family and encourage a sense of presence and compassion among those involved. Though this energy healing will not cure our client at this stage of life, and we are not always aware of its affect, the loving presence and healing touch in which Reiki is shared, can be deeply healing. 

Reiki allows us to better handle the uncertainty of life and death.  We can feel warm, loved, and connected to those around us and to ourselves. It helps us to lift our spirits and accept things as they are. 

Spiritual Healing Through Reiki

Spiritual healing is a wonderful and common result of giving and receiving Reiki. 

The word, "Reiki" translates to "spiritually guided energy" and is a non-religious term. People from all faiths can practice or receive Reiki without having to give up the beliefs they may carry. Reiki often helps to strengthen and support the individual’s religious beliefs and practices.

Reiki can offer a deeply calming experience that can promote and support deeper exploration and soul connection. This form of energy healing has been known to help people let go of spiritual pain and regrets. Reiki can help us remember how to connect with our deeper selves and find love and acceptance for that person. It can help us deepen our compassion and forgiveness towards ourselves but also towards others.
