Very occasionally after a reiki treatment you may experience a ‘healing reaction' (everyone reacts differently). This usually indicates that your body is continuing to cleanse itself and could also mean that more reiki is necessary. Symptoms you could experience are mild headaches, nausea, cold or flu like symptoms (minor), bowel changes, feeling emotional or fatigued, but this will resolve itself within a few days and you will feel much better afterwards. Drinking plenty of water to help with any of these symptoms and eating healthy and participating in some gentle exercise (e.g. walking outside) will also help.
Contact me should you wish to discuss any concerns you have before or after a treatment. However, speaking to someone you trust about your emotions can also help as part of your release which is part of the cleansing process, because once you have voiced any concerns you have it helps the cleansing progress further showing you are ready to deal with issues and move on.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of self healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. There is an element of spiritual enlightment but that is down to the individual and whether that is what is needed in the stage of life they are currently going through. Reiki works on the mind,body and soul and as a reiki practioner I have no control over what comes first, because reiki is bespoke to everyone and will find its own pathway in giving you what you need.
It has been effective in helping with many illnesses and always has a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. Your body is the greatest healer and when you experience reiki and how it can straighten out any of your energy imbalances, your human body will be in better shape to deal with any physical or mental challenges you may be facing.
Reiki is an excellent complimentary therapy to conventional medicine and the two combined can make a patients healing process much more manageable.
Again, one more time I empasise that while reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion therefore it is not dependent on any specific belief and will work whether you are skeptical about it or not.
