Can Reiki Help Manage Chronic Pain? By Marty Fabianova

CAN REIKI HELP YOU MANAGE CHRONIC PAIN?

Chronic pain. An unwelcome intruder in millions of people’s lives, he often arrives when you least expect him and for no obvious reason. His stay can last anything from a few weeks or months to years. Once Mr. Chronic Pain occupies a person’s body, he can make their life a misery and evicting him from the property is rarely straightforward.

As chronic pain often does not have a clear connection to any physical cause, many people can go from one doctor to another without finding much relief. This applies especially, if the pain cannot be attributed to any specific event (i.e. fracture) or disease (i.e. arthritis.)

So, what are the most common causes of chronic pain then?

WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?

Chronic pain can be caused by accidents, disease or physical overload. But what we experience as chronic pain can also be linked to stress, trauma or supressed emotions. In such cases, the problem manifests itself physically, yet treating the body alone often brings little or no respite. This is because the underlying psychological, emotional or spiritual causes have not been addressed. And that’s where Reiki can help.

REIKI AND CHRONIC PAIN

Reiki is a healing modality which treats a person as a whole. This approach helps to restore balance on both a physical and an emotional level. Laying hands or hovering them above various parts of your body, the Reiki practitioner acts as a channel of energy. During Reiki treatment, your muscles relax, energy blocks are released, and depleted areas of your body are charged. By restoring the energy flow, a life-altering chronic pain becomes more manageable or may disappear completely. People often feel refreshed and relaxed even after just one Reiki session. For deep-lasting results, a set of consecutive sessions are recommended.

WOULD MY GP APPROVE IT?

More and more doctors are beginning to appreciate Reiki and suggest it to their patients as a complement to traditional treatments. This can be advised for coping better with cancer pain, emotional pain, recovering from complicated injuries or helping to ease chronic pain that is not linked to any physical cause.

In May 2012, Reiki has been added to a short list of complementary therapies approved by the CNHC (Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council).

Reiki is by no means a substitute for medical treatments and health checks are always advised if concerned.

Use Reiki’s Healing Principles for Everyday Peace by Marty Fabianova

How to stay calm and productive when there is ‘too much, too fast’ going on in your life? Mikao Usui, who re-discovered Reiki, brought these “life guide” principles back to the world as part of the Reiki healing principles. Explore how they can help you manage daily stress better.
 

Just for today I will not be angry.

It is hard not to be angry when for instance someone, who barely knows you, casts a fast judgement about you. But you know what? How people act is their responsibility. How you respond to their action is your choice. Try not to take anything personally and remember that letting go of anger frees one’s mind.
 

Just for today I will not worry.

While anger deals with past events, worry deals with future ones. Either way, we won’t be present to what is happening in our life NOW, if we allow anger or worry to take over. Let’s try not to worry about things we cannot change, and let’s try to substitute worrying for action where we do have the power to change something. Action speaks louder than words or thoughts.

 

Just for today I will show love and respect to every living thing.

Every living being has its purpose in life and deserves to be respected.  Honour your parents, your teachers and everyone who comes into your life. Even if the encounter is not pleasant, remember that we learn the most from the hardest lessons.
 

Just for today I will live by the attitude of gratitude.

Even though it might seem like there are no positives in your life right now, try to start your day with listing things for which you are thankful. Your health, family and friends, steady income, roof above your head, food… Or anything else you can think of that not everybody has and people might tend to take for granted. Simple things like thanks, forgiveness, smiles, good words, and gratitude calms the mind and brings more positive things into your life.
 

Just for today I will do my work honestly.

Try to do everything you do, to the best of your ability. It has been proved that, for instance, food cooked with love has much higher nutritional properties than food cooked absent-mindedly or with negative emotions. Let’s bring some love to everything we do and watch for the results!

Reiki-The Inner Sunshine by Marty Fabianova

Reiki- The Inner Sunshine

Imagine you are lying on a beach. The hot sand is filling every cell of your body with a feeling of beautiful warmth and all your worries and stresses are being washed away by the whispering waves of the sea. The sun tickles your cheeks and the blowing wind is making you feel fresh, energised and content. Your body is relaxed and your mind is in a state of absolute peace. And now imagine that you can feel like this anytime, not just when you go on a holiday. How? By treating yourself to a regular dose of Reiki!

What is Reiki?

Reiki (pronounced ‘raykey’) is a natural, hands-on healing system. Its origins can be traced back to the ancient Tibet, thousands of years ago. This technique was lost for centuries, until its rediscovery in the late 1800′s by Dr. Mikao Usui from Japan. Since then it has found its fans all around the globe.

This powerful healing enhances the flow of Qi/Chi (Chinese), Ki (Japanese), Prana (Sanskrit) or the Universal life-force energy which is present in every living being. The Reiki practitioner acts as a channel for this Universal energy, enabling the body’s own healing processes to be activated – on a physical, mental and emotional level. Reiki is now offered by the NHS, most commonly as a complimentary treatment for cancer patients. Heart surgeon Dr. Oz (‘Oprah Winfrey’s doctor’) and celebrities such as Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, Meg Ryan and Angelina Jolie all tout the benefits of Reiki.

What are the benefits of Reiki?

Reiki engages the body’s own self-healing, so we are able to better address whatever dis-ease we are going through. It does not treat any condition directly. This healing discipline goes to the core of bodily and emotional problems, rather than just easing symptoms. Many fans of Reiki say that it helps them to release stress, improve concentration and sports endurance. It is also said to help lessen the symptoms of many chronic conditions.

Reiki is not restricted to any gender, age or religion. Everybody can benefit from Reiki’s rejuvenating and empowering touch. Are you ready for your portion of inner sunshine?
