Stress Management: How to Use Reiki for Stress Relief

There is a deep connection between the body, mind and spirit. Anxiety impacts all three in an adverse way.  In this post we will look at how to use Reiki to enhance your stress management.

Stress Management Using Reiki

Stress tends to pile on when we are overcome with all the responsibilities associated with work, home, and family. Very often this takes place without our realizing it. If we don’t address it, stress can become chronic and our bodies react with fatigue, moodiness and sometimes, disease.

So what’s a stressed out person to do? Many people look to manage their stress in a variety of ways. Reiki is quickly becoming a favorite stress management technique because of the many benefits associated with it.

What exactly is Reiki?

Reiki is the belief that there is an unseen life force energy that flows through every living thing. However, the practice of Reiki is an ancient Japanese technique known to reduce stress and promote relaxation.  Most noteworthy, it also promotes healing.  Administered by a Reiki therapist, a “laying on hands” takes place when Reiki is practiced.  This means that the therapist channels energy into the patient by means of touch.

What to expect when you are first introduced to Reiki for stress management

When you are first introduced to Reiki your Reiki master will bring you into a relationship with the life energy force we previously mentioned. This is called Reiki Attunement.

The Reiki Attunement enables any dense energy to clear and release. As an outcome, your chakra fields and etheric body are strengthened. Additionally, they will have the ability to get and transfer high frequency healing light.

What are the benefits of using Reiki as a stress management tool

Reiki can help return you to a relaxed state of being.  The many benefits include:

  • restoring balance to the mind, body, and spirit
  • clearing your energy bodies
  • helping your body to cleanse itself of toxins,
  • it supports your immune system,
  • brings relief from the emotional and physical strain of stress, and
  • unblocks your meridians, chakras and nadas.

Using Crystal Healing in conjunction with Reiki

You can reduce your stress levels more quickly by introducing crystal healing into your Reiki sessions.  Crystal healing is when crystals or crystal bowls are used to create sounds of healing and relaxation. The sounds are very beneficial and accomplish several different things.  They can:

  • promote deep tension release in the cells of your body
  • enhance relaxation
  • carry Reiki energy deep into the body
  • reduce your stress from within
  • help your body to respond to Reiki energy

Crystal bowls come in a variety of sizes and be tuned to any note desired.

Using the Healing Drum during your Reiki sessions

Another method that can increase the benefits of Reiki for stress management is the addition of a healing drum. Healing drumming also uses sound waves to introduce Reiki energy more deeply into your energy field.   The drumming creates a deep, relaxing state as it eliminates your stress.

In conclusion…

Here’s an interesting fact I uncovered during researching this post.  Most cultures, at some point during their history, embraced the drum during meditation, healing and their sacred rituals.
