How Will Reiki Benefit You?
Imbalance - hormonal, emotional, systemic - happens at every stage of our lives, and can affect us in many ways. Here are some symptoms of imbalance and how Reiki can heal them:
Perimenopause & Menopause
Yes, it’s true that hot flashes and insomnia are a common side effect of menopause and perimenopause. However, it doesn’t mean that you're doomed to suffer hopelessly and indefinitely! A return to equilibrium is possible, and Reiki is a gentle, yet powerful, technique for getting there. Reiki assists in calming the mind, helps to remove old habits and energies, and provides a deeper sense of self-awareness.
Fertility (Learn more about Reiki for Pregnancy, Birth, Postpartum)
Many times, the energy in and around the reproductive systems is very low, particularly if we have old emotional wounds stored in this area. This can affect the reproductive organs and hormone levels that support ovulation. Reiki enhances other medical procedures so it can be used in conjunction with fertility treatment plans. Reiki enables the body to go into a deeply relaxed state, allowing women to experience a reduction in stress levels. When stress levels are reduced, the body is better able to maintain its balance, and its organs and systems can operate optimally. Reiki also helps to release negative emotions, resulting in a shift toward hope and having a more positive outlook.
Anxiety and Depression
These mood instabilities are caused by an imbalance, stress, and/or toxins in the body. Reiki helps by addressing the underlying causes and heals or reverses them.
Lack of sleep causes stress, emotional imbalance, and increased cortisol levels, all of which cause hormonal imbalance. As with anxiety and depression, Reiki will treat the underlying issues of your insomnia, such as stress.
Poor digestion can be caused by diet or hormonal imbalances. Digestive disorders and irritabilities can be treated with Reiki as it will soothe your internal workings, allowing everything to work more smoothly.
Consistent Weight Gain
A healthy and active lifestyle can help with weight control. However, things like insulin resistance or thyroid problems can contribute to a consistent weight gain. Reiki can help by balancing your insulin and thyroid through the transfer of healing energy.
One of the most noticeable symptoms of hormonal imbalances is a decreased sex drive. This is also caused by disturbed sleep patterns. Reiki can decrease your stress levels and help you sleep better so you and your partner can revive your romance.
If you’re reaching for coffee throughout the day, and you feel sluggish and mentally foggy, you’ve got fatigue. Though this is a symptom of hormonal imbalance, Reiki can heal this by making it easier for you to sleep. Reiki will also provide you with positive, revitalizing energy so you are alert and energetic all day long.

What Happens During a Reiki Session?
A Reiki session is deeply relaxing and restorative, and often brings the receiver to a profoundly meditative place. In the session, the fully clothed receiver lies on a massage table while the practitioner holds her hands in a series of positions, either on or just above the receiver’s body, passing the sacred universal energy on to the receiver.
What Does a Reiki Session Feel Like?
Experiences during a Reiki treatment vary from person to person. The receiver may feel heat, cold, tingling, waves of energy, or nothing at all. The most commonly reported benefits of Reiki are increased and smoother energy, greater calmness, and a sense of balance. Reiki energy encourages the recipient to let go of tension, anxiety, fear or other negative feelings, leading to a state of peace and well-being. Receivers often experience physical, emotional, and spiritual release during a session.
Reiki complements other alternative therapies and traditional medical practices, assisting with healing on both the physical and emotional levels. As with other energetic therapies such as meditation and Qi Gong, one session is wonderfully positive, but the benefits accumulate exponentially with consistent sessions.
