Reiki for Distance Healing

Dec 04, 2017 08:39PM ● By Kerry Hardy

Reiki has been shown by scientific research to be effective at reducing symptoms, such as pain, anxiety, nausea, insomnia, high blood pressure and heart palpitations, among many others. Overall stress levels are reduced, inducing relaxation, and restoring balance and energy flow so the body can heal.

At this point, many patients are benefiting from the healing effects of Reiki and receiving treatment in hospitals, clinics and health and wellness centers. However, some people that will benefit from Reiki energy healings have issues with transportation and physical limitations, or are too symptomatic to leave the home comfortably or safely. The ability to receive a Reiki energy healing from a distance can increase their healing.

A distant energy healing, where the Reiki Master is in one location and the patient is in the comfort of their own home or in a quiet space, is just as effective as if the practitioner was physically in the room. The connection between healer and the one being healed exists outside of time and space.

There are people that have difficulty understanding the concept of a distant Reiki healing and the practitioner not being physically present for the session. An analogy that may be helpful is trusting that cell phones work wirelessly or that information can be transmitted through a WiFi router from one device to another. Even though we can’t see the information being sent, the phone rings and that email is delivered. Transmission of energy does not require a physical connection.

Because Reiki is a non-invasive technique that causes no side effects or complications, it can be performed on anyone of any age or state of health, even cancer patients. Reiki can help from the moment of diagnosis and should continue even when the patient is cancer-free in order to continue healing the mind, body and spirit on many levels.
