When you have a sinus infection or sore throat you may take a prescription drug or a throat lozenge. If you are anemic you may add an iron supplement to your health routine and speak with your primary care physician.
However, there are things you can do to help lift your emotional wellness and spirit that needs healing.
There are several complementary therapies that have been nurturing people’s souls for thousands of years. It is not always possible to measure the successes of these complementary therapies. The visible outcomes are when patients share the experiences with family and friends.
Complementary therapy like Reiki is not a choice between conventional medicine and complementary healing. It is important to continue seeing your Primary Care Physician and health specialists to control blood pressure, diabetes, and other health concerns.
If your mind is open to different types of therapies, you may want to add Reiki to help you with an overall sense of wellness and well-being.
Reiki is a healing technique that channels energy in a person’s own body to balance spiritual well-being. Reiki is derived from a combination of two Japanese words. “Rei” means “Higher Power” and “Ki” means “Life Force Energy.” Doctor Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist, began this form of channeling energy as a way to help patients heal the connection between mind and body in the 1800s.
