Karuna Reiki relaxes the physical body (easing pain and tension), improves how you feel (lifts your spirits and your mood) and assists your mental well-being (promoting a peaceful state of mind, easing your ability to cope with ill-health and manage day-to-day living). Most people find receiving Karuna Reiki a very soothing experience. It can bring feelings of relaxation, peace and well-being that promote healing.
Stress disrupts and weakens the body and is often caused by conflicting thoughts and feelings such as fear, worry, doubt, anger, anxiety, etc. This can block the body’s natural ability to repair, regenerate and protect itself. The effects of unreleased stress range from minor aches to major health concerns.
What Can be Treated?
People report help with stress, headaches, insomnia, digestive disorders, back pain, skin problems, reduction in pain and other health conditions. Karuna Reiki also promotes psychological healing, including release of anger, fear, worry, sadness and other unhealthy feelings and replaces them with self-worth, confidence and tranquility. There are no contraindications for Reiki, it works alongside conventional medicine, other complementary therapies and herbal medicine.
Often, people will come for Reiki as a last resort. They may have had a health condition for years and have reached a point of not being able to cope or wanting things to change. This could be pain-related, mobility-related or feeling fed up and coming to the end of their tether and are now willing to try anything. These are usually the people who cannot believe the immediate benefit they feel and will return for regular treatments until health conditions ease, become more manageable or completely improve. Quite often, on feeling the benefits in their mental and emotional well-being, they return for treatment even after health conditions have improved. Reiki can provide help, support and a ray of hope.
