With the world engulfed by a global pandemic known as Corona, many people feel deprived of basic needs like showing affection to someone they love or adore. They can’t touch or have close contact with them. They have no idea that our sense of touch can be a source of energy healing for people suffering through an ailment.
Healing touch is a known phenomenon, and it has some excellent health benefits for the people. Many Reiki practitioners are well aware that our body is constantly going through pain and emotional distress. They are trained to sense, identify, and alleviate the body from the different issues or disturbances. The main aim is to help people restore balance and enhance their overall physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional well-being.
Benefits of Healing Touch
Healing touch therapy has many benefits, including:
- Decreasing anxiety
- Alleviating symptoms of depression
- Treating various acute and chronic conditions
- Increasing relaxation
- Minimizing overall stress
- Alleviating physical pain caused through intense medical treatments like chemotherapy or surgery
- Reducing headache and migraine pain
- Easing back pain due to strain or fractures
Healing Touch Session
A healing touch session is quite similar to getting a massage. The session is conducted by a Reiki practitioner who has the required skills and expertise to carry out the task assigned. The patient is asked to lie down, and the practitioner examines the energy centers or energy fields within the body. The main target is to promote a better flow of energy within that area, thus creating a balance and relieving blocked energy. Reiki practitioners don’t claim to heal people but promote balance in the body which helps the body heal itself.
During the session, the practitioner keeps their hands slightly above the body, moving them across and through the energy field. As the practitioner proceeds through the session, the patient is encouraged to relax and take shallow breaths. As the practitioner’s hands move over the body, some people experience a warming sensation. Others feel a vibrating or tingling feeling, but this is not necessary for the process to work.
Reiki is a very beneficial and easy way of releasing stress from your body. One should consider having a session done at least once a month.
