Psychotherapeutic Reiki represents a holistic mind-body approach to therapy. Reiki in conjunction with psychotherapy has many healing benefits. Some of the most known benefits of Reiki energy healing include relaxation and stress reduction. However, Reiki does much more than that. It helps reduce anxiety and depression, balances the mind and emotions, improves mood, and even helps heal and strengthen relationships.
What is Reiki Energy Healing?
Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing touch technique. It is used to promote health, wellness, and transition. The Usui System of Reiki uses the Universal Life Force Energy to balance energies within our bodies to heal where Reiki practitioners act as a channel through which Reiki energy travels. The aim of Reiki energy healing is a balanced physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual being.
How Does Reiki Improve our Life?
It is widely believed that Reiki improves every aspect of our lives. Psychotherapeutic Reiki is used to heal the body, mind, and the spirit. Today, Reiki is used as a complementary therapy in the treatment of numerous physical and mental health conditions. The most common benefits of Reiki holistic treatment include:

Reiki and holistic massage help patients with chronical illness adjust to treatments and medications, but it also helps reduce side-effects of medical treatments. For instance, cancer patients who received Reiki reported a significant decrease in side effects of Chemo-therapy treatment.
The effects of Reiki are cumulative and can attract significant improvement in your life. It has been proved that regular Reiki treatments can improve health and support well-being in every way.
Why is Balanced Mental Health Important?
A healthy, balanced approach to life means that our mental health is in a good state. However, this healthy life outlook is subject to different psychological, physiological, genetic and environmental factors.
It is known that physical illness disturbs our mental health balance, causing a damage to our mental well-being. Stressful life events, trauma, certain genetic predispositions and other factors may influence our mental health balance and cause suffering.
The Power of Reiki Energy Healing
The idea behind Reiki is a concept of Seven Chakras (seven key energy centers) in our body and Universal Life Force Energy flow through them.
Reiki holistic technique is founded on the idea that unseen life force energy flows through us and marks our well-being. If our life force energy is low, we are stress vulnerable and prone to illness. Reiki helps release the negative energy often accountable for our poor mental health.
Body Chakras and Mental Health
Research has proved that Reiki helps in the reduction of stress, depression, and anxiety. In addition, it proved its benefits in relieving chronic pain associated with physical illnesses.
Mental disorders are believed to be connected to blockage of the energy flow in Chakras in our body.
The Root Chakra. This is the base of our feeling of being grounded. The Root Chakra controls a variety of organs such as supernal glands (responsible for adrenalin production). Scientific evidence suggests that that high levels of adrenalin may cause mental conditions such as anxiety disorder.
The Sacral Chakra. This chakra represents the center of our reproduction and creativity - it is believed to be holding our dreams, ambitions, and fantasies. So, energy blockages in the Navel chakra may result in weakened libido, emotional rigidity, and low self-esteem.
The Solar Plexus Chakra. This chakra is a symbol of our personal strength, learning, and knowledge that enables us to bring change into our life. Energy blockages in this chakra lead to low self-esteem and depression.
The Heart Chakra. The center of love, hope, and compassion. When energy in this chakra is blocked, it causes feelings of loneliness, a lack of empathy, and shyness.
The Throat Chakra. The center of expression, communication, honesty, and creativity. Energy blockage in this chakra leads to fatigue, difficulty to express yourself, and fear of conflicts.
The Brow Chakra (the Third Eye chakra). Intuition and physical senses. This energy center governs the pituitary gland and neurological function, regulates sleep, and maintains balanced metabolic function. When the Third Eye chakra is blocked, we may become frequently sick, develop high blood pressure, or suffer from insomnia. In addition, we may lose a sense of direction in our life.
The Crown Chakra. Center of our cosmic consciousness, understanding, and enlightenment. When the Crown chakra energy is blocked, we experience meaningless, loneliness, and tend to feel lost.
