Some of the conditions Reiki can treat
Reiki can just about heal any condition and if it can't, then it can alleviate the pain and the anguish that go with so many illnesses and their emotional reactions. Below are just a few examples of conditions that Lisa has successfully treated, though this list is by no means exhaustive. Please ask for further information on a particular condition.
Reiki for Depression,
Reiki for Digestive issues, Chrohn's Disease, IBS, dietary issues
Reiki masters believe that diseases such as depression interfere with the body’s surrounding energy field causing feelings of sadness, loneliness, anxiety and pain. Reiki deals with depression and anxiety as a negative energy and this negative energy manifests as imbalance in the chakras or energy centres. Common symptoms of depression include insomnia or increased need for sleep, fatigue, loss of interest in hobbies or life in general, sadness, crying, anger, suicidal thoughts, etc.
Treating depression with Reiki is fast becoming a sought-after alternative to modern drugs which is safer and more permanent. Reiki brings about immediate and dramatic improvement in condition of persons suffering from depression. It is also evident from countless testimonials that people who have come out of their depression by using Reiki, have not had a recurrence of the same.
In both anxiety and depression, a "sense of well-being" is missing. This may be one answer to how Reiki helps anxiety and depression, by restoring a sense of well-being and removing emotional blockages being held in the body, which are often a product of past negative emotions or traumas. Symptoms of anxiety often include insomnia, irritability, unreasonable fear, heart palpitations and chest pain.
Stress is a common part of everyday life for many people and while some stress is actually beneficial, too much for too long can actually start to cause serious problems. If you are stressed, you'll need to de-stress and Reiki can really help.
Think of Reiki as a lifestyle option, making the necessary changes to bring about a powerful and lasting change to how you think and act.
Reiki for Bereavement
and Grief issues
It is through the capacity to digest that we are nourished. And it is not simply our food that is digested, we need to digest our experiences. When we eat well, sitting down in a calm environment, taking time to chew it properly, the body is able to use the nutrients efficiently.
When we don't attend to our digestive needs, the food we eat becomes toxic in our systems and the toxins gravitate towards the area of our constitutional weakness, setting the stage for disease. Some of these include irritable bowel, diarrohea, constipation, abdominal cramping and nausea. The stress can aggravate chronic diseases such as inflammatory bowel diseases (ulcerative colitis and crohn's disease).
Reiki with regards to digestion can be quite audible, with the abdominal gurgling frequently heard soon after the session starts. This is a clear sign that the body is responding and normalizing.
Symptoms of irritable bowel or Crohn's disease may be calmed by a single session, but repeated treatment will give deeper balancing and longer lasting benefits.
Sleep disorders are the number one health related problem. Sleep disorders such as insomnia, obstructive sleep apnoea, restless leg syndrome, afflict well in excess of 100 million people, yet they remain under diagnosed and undertreated. Insomnia is a very common symptom of depression and also a risk factor for becoming depressed.
Insomnia, whether chronic or occasional, is defined as:
1. Difficulty falling asleep
2. Waking frequently during the night
3. Waking too early in the morning and not being able to get back to sleep
4. Waking feeling un-refreshed.
Insomnia affects your hormone levels, accelerates aging, and increases your risk for serious disease.
The top underlying causes of sleep disorders include:
Stress: All types of negative emotions, including worry, fear, anxiety, etc., can keep you up at night. Stress tops the list when it comes to pinning down the cause of insomnia and other sleep disturbances.
Overactive adrenals: Increased levels of stress hormones in your body can lead to a hyper-aroused state that makes it difficult to sleep.Eye problems: People with damage to the optic nerve can have problems sleeping, including difficulty falling asleep, waking up at strange times, sleepiness during the day and insomnia at night.
EMF Disturbances: Using a cell phone before bed could cause insomnia, headaches and confusion, and may also cut your amount of deep sleep, interfering with your body‘s ability to refresh itself. Additionally you may have an improperly wired bedroom with unshielded wires or you might have a point source of high EMFs such as a refrigerator on the other side of your bedroom wall. Magnetic fields are not blocked by walls and it will go right through them.
It is always better to find non medication remedies for sleep disturbances. All sleep medications have unwanted side effects, pushing the brain toward unconsciousness without giving the profound benefits of deep sleep and can result in dependence.
It has been reported that with Reiki treatments, people experience deeper more refreshing sleep.
Reiki for Insomnia, sleep disorders, night terrors
At a time when we are suffering a bereavement and grieving for a persons passing, we go through a range of emotions. This can be anything from anger, guilt, loneliness, to the feeling that we cannot cope without that person in our lives.
Everyone is different in what and how they feel, but what we do understand is that our life force energies are at their lowest ebb.
At a time of grieving Reiki and Spiritual Healing can be of great benefit to the bereaved. As the energy heals the whole mind, body, emotions and spirit, the energy will go a long way towards giving the individual inner peace and the ability to move forward in their lives.
Reiki offers relief during this time of emotional distress and sorrow. It clears the emotions and offers clarity, stress relief and deep relaxation aiding in restful sleep all of which help someone going through a tramatic experience or grieving the loss of a loved one to recover their equilibrium.
Reiki for infertility and preganancy issues e.g.morning sickness, backache, hormonal fluctuations
Reiki is safe in pregnancy and childbirth and while breast-feeding infants. It can also be useful in treating infertility and miscarriages.
Woman's menstrual cycles usually normalise or at least improve with the first cycle. Others have found Reiki helped with endometriosis, ovarian cysts, and polycystic breasts.
Experiencing Reiki while pregnant will allow you and your baby to evolve and synchronise on many levels and the blending of energies will help to unite you both. Babies sense and love Reiki energy and don't be surprised by an increase in movement during a Reiki session. Reiki energy helps Mums to reduce stress and relax the body, experience a better nights sleep, it eases anxiety, fatigue and reduces aches and pains.
Reiki can assist you in having a successful and fulfilling delivery and removes energy blocks therefore allowing the birth to flow more freely.
Reiki for those undergoing treatment for Cancer
Reiki is used by cancer patients for the relief from the anxiety, pain and fatigue that can accompany every stage of the illness and treatment and to support recovery "beyond" the active treatment phase.
Reiki is also an invaluable support after treatment, when patients often feel abandoned once they are sent home after treatment, left to dwell alone in a land between illness and wellness.
Many Macmillan Cancer nurses are now trained to adminster Reiki to patients throughout their treatment.
Reiki for PMT/period problems, menopause, hot flushes, hormonal fluctuations, PCOS
Reiki can balance hormones by controlling the endocrine glands that secrete hormones in the human body. These hormones regulate many vital physiological processes in our body. These hormones are secreted into the blood stream to control several functions including growth.
The blockage of the universal energy in chakras causes the irregularity in the secretion of the hormones. When Reiki is given to the chakras the glands start to secrete hormones in a balanced way. When there is harmony in the flow of universal energy in the chakras the hormonal secretion inside your body is regulated.
Many people who have given Reiki to balance hormones have reported high degree of success
Reiki for Weight Management
Excess weight is more complicated than we think and Reiki can help.
Weight gain is not itself a problem but rather a symptom of deeper, multifaceted dysfunction. Each person who struggles with excess weight has a unique imbalance and needs an individualised approach. Some people lose weight after incorporating Reiki into their lifestyle and I believe this happens for many reasons. One is the reduction of stress hormones in the bloodstream that incline the body to hold weight. Other possible reasons include improved overall digestive functions, gradual detoxification, more refreshing sleep, enhanced hormonal balance, becoming more in tune with one's body, gravitating to what it truly needs, less emotional eating, feeling better overall and feeling better about oneself.
The better we feel, the more likely we will make the choices and the effort that improve well-being. This means that Reiki can be the change that makes it easier for us to make other required changes.
