Is Holiday Stress dragging you down?  Do you feel fatigued and overwhelmed? Emotionally Drained?

It happens especially at this time of the year.  We accumulate and carry so much energy with us throughout the year but never have the opportunity to review and release it.  When the holiday season comes, our stress levels naturally doubles as we begin to prepare for the celebration into the New Years.  Stress can creep up on us in many different ways.

A holistic perspective sees health as a dynamic state of balance with considerable resilience in the overall system. A healthy person can withstand a certain amount of stress and bounce back. This is because the human body’s ability to heal includes various self-regulating mechanisms that maintain overall balance, which is known as homeostasis.

However, after experiencing sudden, intense stress or moderate stress that is constant over a period of time, the body’s ability to regulate itself becomes compromised and health declines, slowly or not so slowly. Stress causes the body to lose its ability to rebalance, to restore homeostasis.  This is why you are constantly recovering from that same flu repeatedly.

Unless they are addressed, the stresses of everyday life – environmental, emotional, physical, financial, social etc. – can combine with an individual’s genetic predispositions and result in declining health and wellbeing.

Reiki treatment helps lessen the impact of stress, releasing tension from the entire system. Not only does the person move toward his or her own unique balance in body, mind and spirit, but also, depending on the level of physical health when Reiki begins, the body’s own healing mechanisms often begin functioning more effectively.


What might I experience?

“I feel very refreshed and seem to be thinking more clearly.” “I think I fell asleep.” “I can’t believe how hot your hands got!” “I feel more relaxed than even after a massage.” “My headache is gone.” These are some of the things people typically say after a Reiki session.

The experience of Reiki is subjective, changeable, and sometimes very subtle. People often experience heat in the practitioner’s hands, but sometimes the practitioner’s hands feel refreshingly cool. Other common experiences are subtle pulsations where the practitioner’s hands are placed or cascading waves of pulsations throughout the body.

People often comment how comforting they find the experience of Reiki to be. An interesting study reported that recipients frequently feel that they are hovering in a threshold state of consciousness, simultaneously aware of their surroundings and deeply indrawn. Some people fall into a deep, sleeplike meditative state. Sometimes the experience of Reiki is dramatic, while for other people, the first session in particular may be uneventful, although they feel somehow better afterward. The most common experience is an almost immediate release of stress and a feeling of deep relaxation.

Reiki is cumulative and even people who don’t notice much the first time usually have progressively deeper experiences if they continue. Besides the immediate experience of the Reiki, you may notice other changes that continue to unfold as the day goes on: perhaps stronger digestion, a sense of being more centered and poised and less reactive, and sleeping deeply that night.

Studies have also shown that people with cancer can benefit from complementary therapies such as Reiki.  It can help with coping through a difficult process or stage in life.

Reiki Practitioners have observed that Reiki can:

Help some people to feel deeply relaxed
Help people cope with difficult situations
Relieve emotional stress and tension
Help to improve overall wellbeing

Some people with cancer say they feel better after using therapies such as Reiki. Studies show that this is often because a therapist spends time with the person, and touches them. After the rush and stress of hospitals and treatment, it can be very relaxing when someone gives you attention for an hour or more, in a calm setting.

How do you have Reiki?

When you first see a Reiki practitioner, they will ask you about your general health and medical history. They will also ask you why you would like to have Reiki and discuss a possible treatment plan with you.

During a Reiki treatment, you don’t have to get undressed but you usually take off your shoes and coat and sit or lie down. You can have your eyes open or closed. The Reiki practitioner may dim the lights or play soothing music. They put their hands on, or a few inches above, your body and move them in slow, brushing movements. The movements usually start at your head and work down to your feet, but may focus on a particular area of your body.

The practitioner aims to move and balance the energy within and around your body. And they try and get rid of any energy blocks to encourage physical healing and strengthen your energy. They call this energy Ki.

During the session you may feel a tingling sensation, a sense of deep relaxation, or warmth or coolness throughout your body. You may not feel anything, but practitioners say this doesn’t mean the treatment isn’t working. You can stop the treatment at any time.

A session usually lasts about an hour. Many practitioners say you will get the best results from 3 sessions within a fairly short space of time. Then take a break before having more treatments. After a Reiki session you may feel thirsty. It can help to drink plenty of water and avoid strong caffeine based drinks, such as coffee. You may feel deeply relaxed, and resting at home afterwards can help you get the full benefit of the treatment.

Remember, Reiki is not a religion and there are no side effects.  My clients have commented that Reiki is a wonderful relaxing and energizing experience. My dear pet clients have often thanked me with a lick and nudge after the session while I am engaged in a discussion with their owners regarding their treatment.
