​Three Ways Reiki Can Enhance Your Life

​Three Ways Reiki Can Enhance Your Life

Ashley Davis

Certified Reiki Practitioner

The practice of Reiki, a Japanese technique that uses “life force energy”, or Ki to promote relaxation and healing, has been used by people across the world for nearly a century. Unfortunately, many people in the United States are unaware of the Reiki method of healing along with its benefits. I myself had never heard of Reiki until this past fall when my mother suggested I receive a session to help with my struggle with chronic vertigo. Much to my surprise, the simple laying of hands on my body in order to transfer more “life force energy” worked wonders. This was a huge awakening for me. Not only did Reiki help calm down my symptoms, but it also put me in a happy, relaxed state. Since then, I have gone on to learn Reiki on my own and give myself sessions every day to help manage my vertigo symptoms.

Now that you know how Reiki has helped me, here are three other ways Reiki can help enhance your life:

  • 1.Reiki can reduce stress and help with relaxation. The transference of “life force energy” into your body puts the body in a parasympathetic, or “rest and digest” state. This will lower your heart rate, relieve tension, and help you feel calm.2 In a world where our bodies are constantly taxed with the demands of everyday life, Reiki is a simple and practical technique that can help you relax.
  • 2.Reiki can help you find balance. By receiving treatments on a regular basis, Reiki can help balance the mind and emotions. Because Reiki helps create a calmer and more peaceful state of being, people who receive treatments are better able to cope with everyday stressors, which results in being more resilient to life’s craziness.3 Reiki also helps clear out any negative energy within the seven chakras, allowing you to open up and find emotional balance.
  • 3.Reiki can improve your immune system and overall health. A study conducted by the American Institute of Stress estimates that between 75%-95% of doctor visits are the result of the body’s reaction to stress.1 That is because people that experience continual stress can block the body’s natural ability to repair, regenerate, and protect itself, in turn causing health issues. 1 Because Reiki helps to relieve tension and stress stored in the body, it can help improve your overall health and immunity.

Recommend strongly for fertility treatments!!! – I have been seeing Cara for 9 months now. When I first saw Cara, I had six pregnancies of which five miscarried. I had been going to fertility doctors for 4 years after the second miscarriage. It did result in 1 live birth which I am very happy about. I went through numerous treatments with fertility drugs and IUI in hopes of having a second baby. Eventually, I gave up - the drugs were affecting me emotionally and physically and I was also advised by my fertility doctor that it would not be prudent to subject me to more drugs. I had heard that acupuncture was effective at treating fertility. My visits to another acupuncturist did not yield results. I moved back to Philadelphia and my previous acupuncturist recommended strongly for me to see Cara. Cara, from our initial meeting, provided a comforting and compassionate environment for me. She understood all the emotional and physical issues I was experiencing. Soon after seeing her, I became pregnant. She provided a holistic approach to keeping my pregnancy with a diet to make sure the baby “sticks” and herbs to keep the pregnancy strong. She was always available for my needs through visits, email and phone calls. I really felt she was personally invested in making sure the baby made it. I am now on my 39th week and happily anticipating the birth of my baby. This has been the most supportive and productive healthcare I have had and opened my eyes to a more balanced, healthier lifestyle with the use of Chinese medicine. She definitely does not take a cookie cutter approach to treating her patients, and customizes care based on a person’s needs and lifestyle!
