As we get older, our body struggles with daily chores and life is not always as good as we would like it to be. Pain and soreness in our joints and muscles, slow healing cuts and ugly bruises move to varying degrees from the fun of our senior years. It doesn’t have to be that way though. With regular treatment of Reiki, this annoying, boring conflict can be reduced, alleviated and in many cases eliminated altogether.
Reiki benefits young and old around the world in relieving stress, traumatic injuries, diseases as well as relieving physical, emotional and mental conditions. Unfortunately, not all seniors know how much Reiki can help them.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a gentle, hands-on ancient remedy that connects us to the universal vitality. The energy that confirms science surrounds every person and every other living thing. A Reiki practitioner is not a healer per se, but is trained to be able to channel this need to people in need through the use of his or her hand.
Most seniors rely solely on traditional medicine. Reiki is not an alternative to this medicine. It works with doctors and other healthcare providers as a complementary treatment. Reiki is loving, humble and handy. It is specifically designed to reduce stress and eliminate energy barriers from one’s system. We will eventually, mostly like Raja and other systems, sometimes we will ‘bang up’. Reiki says that ‘energy barrier’ prevents the normal flow of energy in our body.
Healing hands with Reiki
More and more, people of all ages are experiencing and benefiting from a Reiki touch (or a non-touch like Reiki is as effective as a practitioner’s hand a few inches above the body, placed directly on it). It often takes a while to start to feel the difference as a session. People who have had major surgery or chemotherapy also often have shorter recovery times after Reiki therapy and the pain is relieved. Because Reiki is just as effectively hand-held, people who are sensitive to other people’s touch due to neurological or other disorders can also benefit from Reiki.
Reiki creates a new atmosphere that is specifically designed to promote relaxation through the use of soft music, lighting and a relaxed atmosphere. Seniors find this particularly appealing. Falling asleep during a session is fairly common and has no adverse effect on the outcome, in fact, the opposite. If it helps to relax and adapt to the treatment, then by all means, enjoy a little nap time.
Most seniors who receive Reiki treatment experience immediate relief from their symptoms. In others, it may take a few days for it to manifest. Just as medicine does not work the same for everyone, a small percentage of people suggest that they see no change. However, many times, family and friends say they have seen a positive physical or mental difference.
Reiki works best when the healer believes in the benefits of energy therapy. Understanding how Reiki works and believing in its healing power, accepting it and benefiting from the transfer of energy by a Reiki practitioner is a long way to go. Seniors can sometimes be skeptical about Reiki because it is a new age treatment instead of traditional ones. Because of this, it may be recommended to start a shorter session. This will be followed by further Reiki teaching by reading how Reiki has helped others and then leading to a full hour of treatment.
Reiki, seniors and everyday life
I know that most seniors have inertia in their joints and muscles, aches, pains, circulatory problems and neurological disorders. Reiki often relieves this and helps seniors enjoy their golden years a little more. Older people usually take Reiki faster because it provides the relief they are looking for. It helps ease their pain and discomfort and give them a better ability to use their joints and muscles without fear of pain … which in turn falls into such common occurrences.
As I noted above, Reiki helps most people, especially seniors, recover faster from surgery and injury. Remember when you were a kid and got hurt? The first thing your mom did was she put her hand on the injured area and she even kissed him well. It’s Reiki!
Reiki treatment can also alleviate other problems common in seniors: respiratory problems, energy depletion and decreased activity levels; Reiki can improve this and also bring about a generally rejuvenated mental capacity.
The most common inflammation for many seniors is dry, itchy skin. This can be due to a number of reasons. Reiki can help relieve here too.
Insomnia is another common senior complaint with which Reiki can deal. Reiki is so calm and relaxing that with some Reiki self-healing training, anyone suffering from insomnia can be shown how to get a good night’s sleep every night.
Many seniors cannot enjoy their retirement years because of health problems, including physical, chronic illnesses or mental conditions such as mental conditions, depression, amnesia, Alzheimer’s or dementia. With Reiki care, seniors have a much better chance of enjoying their lives.
Dementia is a debilitating disease that robs people of their memories and in advanced cases they often do not even know their own family. Sad! But often, Reiki has the ability to reach these dementia sufferers through its noble treatments.
A study by the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) found that Reiki has the potential to reduce stress, anxiety and depression – all of which affect seniors with dementia. In fact, Reiki makes such a wonderful way into the world of Western medicine that it is now available through nearly 900 hospitals in the USA.
Reiki improves quality of life for seniors
Seniors always have to deal with memory loss constantly, usually reducing their ability to function; Muscle pain, joint and acute pain, disability, discomfort and embarrassing disorders such as incontinence or the ability to do things for oneself; Frequent medical visits, morning and evening medications and many other things that are considered to be his happy retirement years prevent him from enjoying it. Thank God that Reiki is available to help ease that pain and bring a little relief and joy into the lives of our senior citizens. Reiki can really make a difference by reducing the level of their pain, suffering and illness in order to increase the flow of Iki Raja and in turn run their efficiency better; Bring joy back into their lives and improve their health, safety and well-being in general.
Reiki as a pain reliever
U.S. In a government research study, it was found that Reiki can help reduce the need for painkillers and painkillers in people about undergoing a medical procedure.
Reiki as a supplement to traditional medicine
Reiki does not replace traditional medicine and the care of doctors. It works as a complementary therapy and works with doctors and other healthcare providers. Beneficial effects are seen on patients, speeding up the healing process and returning the patient to full health quickly. At times, Reiki works even when there is no other type of treatment.
Reiki and major diseases
Reiki is also proving to be helpful in relieving people suffering from major diseases like heart surgery and cancer. Patients with chemotherapy usually experience a reduction in pain levels when adding Reiki therapy in addition to the recovery routine.
The benefits of Reiki therapy are generally recognized in the medical profession by people, especially seniors. As mentioned above, Reiki therapy is now available in 900 hospitals in the USA and more and more people are beginning to understand how valuable Reiki can be in the treatment of most ailments and diseases. Why Because Reiki has proven itself to be an excellent adjunct or supplement to traditional medical treatments. Reiki works – and it can work for you!
