​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.

Cara Frank is an outstanding practitioner. She treated me for fertility issues and there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that I would not have my child were it not for her expertise and dedication.

She arranged for a practitioner from another group to meet me in the suburbs, so that I could get acupuncture immediately before and after my embryo transfer, since it was scheduled when she was seeing patients in the city. When our embryo wasn’t growing well, my fertility doc said the pregnancy was “unlikely to be successful”, and there was nothing else that Western Medicine had to offer, Cara’s acupuncture and herbs literally saved his life. I know it sounds crazy but, as a physician and fertility patient, I was far too familiar with how these situations usually end up.

Along the way, she has also treated my migraines, diagnosed my hypothyroidism, and kept my blood pressure in a safe range. Her emphasis on the important connection of diet and healthy, as well as her knowledge of food, are exceptional and significantly contribute to the unique and unparalleled experience of being in her care.
