Do you suffer from headaches and migraines and often feel held-back from living a “normal” life? You never know when a debilitating headache could strike, causing you to err on the side of caution when making plans. Headaches themselves are painful enough, not to mention the additional inconveniences like light and noise sensitivity, nausea, dizziness, and vertigo.
After trying everything from Tylenol, to prescription migraine medication, to hot compresses, and even major lifestyle changes, many headache sufferers find themselves asking “what now?” in desperation. If this sounds like you, and if you are ready to try another natural approach to headache relief, we suggest booking a Reiki Session with our very own Mark Balcer!
What is Reiki, you ask?
It’s a form of energy therapy that can aid in the relief of many conditions and emotional states. The word itself means “mysterious atmosphere, miraculous sign”, coming from the Japanese words “rei” (universal) and “ki” (life energy). This form of energy medicine aims to help the flow of energy and remove blocks, enabling relaxation and reduction of pain, according to Medical News Today.
What exactly happens in a Reiki session?
You have the chance to fully relax your body in a peaceful setting. You remain fully clothed and there may be light music or aromas depending on your preferences. The practitioner places his/her hands lightly on, or over, specific areas of the head, limbs, and torso, allowing energy transfer to take place. The practitioner’s hands may become warm or tingly, and when they feel the heat or energy diminish in that area, they’ll move their hands to a different area of the body to pick up on other energies and blockages.
How does Reiki specifically help with headaches?
Both an excess of energy in the head or deficiency of energy can lead to pain. This can be the result of an issue within the head itself, or disruption further down the body which obstructs the free flow of energy, according to Ottawa Holistic Wellness. The disruption in energy flow can result in various headache symptoms including a dull ache, pressure, throbbing, or bursts of sharp pain. Through Reiki we address underlying issues of energy imbalance and work to open up the channels throughout the entire body, allowing energy to move freely so that the pent-up pressure in the head can be released.
Reiki is seen as a legitimate natural method to ease pain and stress, even being recognized as a method of healing by WebMD. If you’re a headache sufferer, let’s get to the bottom of it and begin helping your body’s energy flow freely!
