If one’s energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Although there are a few positions in which the practitioner is in contact with the patient (such as cradling the head), most Reiki treatments do not involve actual touching. The practitioner holds his or her hands a few inches or farther away from the patient’s body and manipulates the energy field from there.
A Reinforcing Effect
Long-term practice of whole-body Reiki is believed to restore the general healthy condition of the body. The energy channels are opened to allow the body to deal properly and naturally with both stress and the build-up of toxins. It will help you to cope with anxiety and depression.
Reiki therapy may also be useful when you are recovering from an illness. Reiki will provide the additional energy required to recover from the illness. It will also reinforce the effects of any other method of natural healing. It can be used as a supplementary therapy as it is a truly complementary system of treatment.
Reduction Of Side-Effects
Reiki therapy can be a very useful adjunct for anyone taking a course of drugs by helping to reduce some of the side effects. Reiki also helps the body in the recovery post drug therapy, surgery and chemotherapy.
In all of these cases, Reiki therapy supplies the body with extra energy, enabling the body to bounce back more quickly from the burdens of surgery and chemicals.
