Sleep is the single most effective thing we can do to reset our brain and body health each day. If it is your wish to avoid sleeping medicines and want to get better sleep through holistic means, you will find that Reiki can provide a natural and welcome relief to help you sleep better. Becoming reliant on a drug to sleep is not something most people are looking to do. But our world is so full of constant technology and other stimuli that cause many individuals to have trouble getting to sleep, staying asleep, and getting enough hours of rest to get them through the next day. Negativity can be difficult to control and harmful thoughts can creep up on you. They overwhelm your mind and affect every cell and organ in your body causing all kinds of sleeping disorders.
What is Reiki? Reiki is healing method that relies on channeling life force energy, or Chi through the hands. According to Reiki theory, we have energy centers located throughout our bodies that facilitate the flow of Chi. The underlying belief is that a healthy physical body correlates strongly with balanced & smooth flowing Chi through our energy centers. Conversely, Chi energy that is blocked by poorly functioning energy centers may result in disease. When a Reiki practitioner lays her hands on a client, she becomes a vessel for this life force energy to flow from the universe through her body. This Chi energy is then channeled through her hands and into the other person to clear the obstructions that are predisposing the health condition.
Did you know that deep rest depends on ingesting tryptophan, an amino acid from a source outside the body? Tryptophan converts to 5-HTP which, in turn, converts to serotonin. Finally, serotonin changes to melatonin, the engine for the body's biological clock. This clock tells a person when to sleep and when to wake up. Darkness causes melatonin to increase, so close the shades and curtains before your sleep. Adding 1/2 to 1 cup of tart cherry juice can assist you in gently falling to sleep since it is a choice source of tryptophan.
Reiki Healing is a method of stress relief and relaxation that draws out and breaks apart the negativity that blocks the flow of energy throughout your body. A session with a Reiki practitioner produces peace and vitality that promotes healing and tranquility. Reiki can be used alongside other treatments, both holistic and conventional. In fact, conventional medicine recognizes that the mind is largely responsible for a person's health. Anything that promotes healthy thought is beneficial and reiki helps to balance all the chakras in your body promoting deep sleep.
