Though it remains an unfamiliar concept to many in the west, the ancient Japanese healing technique of Reiki is one of the oldest, most versatile healing systems in use today. Using energy to balance the body, Reiki operates on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level in order to enhance every aspect of our lives. Reiki techniques can be used to heal the body, mind and the spirit, and is believed to positively impact everything from physical health to emotional well-being. It can also optimize stress reduction and boost mental clarity.
The benefits induced by Reiki are, in my opinion, too numerous to list, but I’ve given it a shot! Below I have done my best to compile some of the more prominent ways Reiki can help you:

Reiki represents a great step in the journey towards spiritual growth, with it’s ability to promote both inner peace and harmony within us.

Regular Reiki sessions have been known to help usher in a calmer, more tranquil state of being. This peaceful state helps balance the mind and emotions, which in turn can help us cope with everyday stress.
REIKI IMPROVES MENTAL CLARITY
Building on the last point, mental balance leads to mental clarity, which assists us with a number of important mental functions, including memory and mood. Reiki can also improve our capacity for empathy, which is important for developing and maintaining interpersonal relationships. In short, Reiki can help us connect with people on a deeper level.
REIKI RELIEVES PHYSICAL PAIN
Reiki has been noted as an effective way to relieve pain induced by arthritis and migraines, as well as many other ailments. It is also seen as a way to manage symptoms of fatigue, asthma, menopause and insomnia.
In fact, today Reiki is used in a number of hospitals as a complementary therapy known to enhance health care.
REIKI RELIEVES MENTAL PAIN
During times of emotional distress, Reiki can aid the grieving process tremendously. By clearing and cleansing our emotions, we are able to gain new perspectives, which helps us deal with sadness or distress.
