The Healing Touch of Reiki
Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) is a healing art used for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki is a form of energy healing that can alleviate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual stress.
Reiki's purpose is to assist the body in its ongoing program for perfect health by seeking to balance areas of imbalance. It is well known that stress is a prominent factor in the reduction of the immune system's effectiveness. Disease is often the result of stress compromising the immune system. Dis-ease promotes disease.
To go a little deeper….
The Nervous System is composed of 2 systems.
The Sympathic Nervous System is your Fight/Flight and Freeze Response and your Parasympathic Nervous System is your relaxation response or rest and digest response.
The Sympathic Nervous System
The Sympathic Nervous System is when your Fight/Flight and Freeze response is activated, your heart rate and blood pressure increases, your digestion slows to a halt and your immune system is suppressed and only focused on Survival. The Fight/Flight and Freeze Response creates Dis-Ease which can create Disease, the result of stress compromising the immune system.
Parasympathic Nervous System
When the Parasympathic Nervous System is activated, your heartrate and blood pressure decrease. The energy and circulation are redirected to the internal organs and digestion is stimulated.
The Immune System comes back on line and your body is focused on Long Term Health rather than Short Term Survival.
Since the Immune System is heightened when we are relaxed, this is how Reiki heals. Reiki helps to get our body into a healing mode, so it can do what it naturally wants to do, Heal itself. Reiki’s purpose is to assist the body in its ongoing program for perfect health by seeking to balance areas of imbalance.
Reiki is effective in treating many ailments and is used in hospitals throughout the country and the world, Sloan Kettering (rated #6 in the country), Cedars-Sinai and Columbia Presbyterian to name a few.
A typical Reiki treatment lasts 45 minutes to an hour. The client lies clothed on a massage table in a room conducive to treatment. Reiki is a safe, highly effective healing modality that will leave you with a feeling of peace and relaxation.
